Default Cossie 206

It was grey, now its slowly becoming Frozen white, i purchased it in a standard road trim but i found it didn`t really stop very well! So began the upgrade into the car it should have been from the start




Back from the blast shop after getting the underseal removed prior to be seam welded

I bought it back 2007 for 12k it was running a stage 3 knocking out 340bhp on motorscopes rollers, with the usual shinny goodies, I ran it for a while on the road with a few trackdays but it just didn`t stop! and thats where it all started. A 6pot 380mm brake upgrade was first on the purchase list, then it was onto the suspension,body,engine,gearbox,diffs n shafts and anything that starts in a 909 part no.

Adding the extra strength to safety devices cage and picking up the extra mounting points for the widetrack square beam along with the front turrets


Its even got a bit of vauxhall thrown into the mix, but thats the only part! with moving to electric power steering
