End of an era today as this car finally left my ownership after many years and has gone to a fellow 106 Rallye Register owner up in North Wales. I know he has big plans for it as a race car so that it will undoubtedly be seen again within the club in future. A few departure photos from this morning

Have spent a bit of free time over the last few weeks painting and prepping the car for reassembly. As part of finishing up this thread from my perspective, here are some pics of the Corsa C EPAS conversion for future reference.

One of the things that I had on the to do list was chopping out the standard rear towing eye and repairing the rear member is is attached to. In my first rounds of work on the car it was evident that the panel was rotten, but I didn’t have the expertise to tackle it. A few years later…

The rear section under the floor was pretty far gone. Chopped it out and fabricated a repair section and fitted it to make good the standard parts, then fabricated this…

So that this would fit. Matching front and rear now.

Assembly is a few steps closer now…

Previously when I modified the scuttle for the AX wiper setup it was pointed out that this might create a drainage issue as it would just leave the wiper motor sitting in water. Of course first time I washed the car this point was proven.

Now modified with drainage positioned so that it clears the brake master cylinder mounting bracket.

Took a deposit on the shell from another 106 Rallye Register member so it will shortly be moving on to a new home.

Really busy spell at work, down time with sickness and then a bit of time off and now finally back to the cars. The 8v road car was driven outside and washed today in the lovely weather. I even put tyre shine on! The boot interior is now in primer, so I just need to flat it back and top coat and then take a look at the front bumper. It is time to get this finished, taxed and tested now so I can find a new home for it.

Last weekend I pulled the 16v project car out of the garage on it’s trolley for the first time in over two years. It was given a good dusting down and a full exterior wash. I’ve been giving it an interior clean up too and had a few little jobs to do on it, such as finishing plating the OEM holes in the floor plan. Very much getting there with the work on this. I am going to miss it as a car given all the hours invested in it and the good times that were had, but very pleased that soon someone else will be getting it back on the road and track and in a state where there can be some more of this:

I have a prospective buyer viewing it this weekend so thought that I should make it look respectable. If all goes to plan I’ll have a healthy deposit and the necessary parts from the owner to be to get it back to a rolling shell. So in theory everything is progressing nicely towards the target of an empty garage and raising the funds for the next level of Peugeot ownership.
