my little 106 just thought id share it with you all smile2.gif





Tint:
i tinted my rear lights after i took most of the pictures, i'll properly take it off again im not sure about it. NOTE! the indicators where just going off when i took the picture its not that dark!!


Video of indicators on

if im right in thinking the brightness is ok, im only worried about the reflectors, on my car its the bottom half thats the reflective part. i'll have to get my friend to drive behind me and see if he can see them or wait til its dark and test them...

thanks for looking smile2.gif

Get yourself some pressed metal plates! They look soo much better and just add a nice clean edge to your car ;D Also sort out your O/S front wing, Take a plunger to that dent and sort the fitment at the front end toung.gif De-badging might not be a bad idea. Thought about body-coloured trims and mirrors?
the stigster
i dont want to debadge it cause i like the badge lol, theres about 3 dents on that wing that need sorting and a couple by the bottom left corner of window by the petrol flap. metal plates sound cool but idk if there legal here? :/

They are if they're reflective.

dubmeister do guaranteed legal pressed plates for around 25-30. There are cheaper ones on ebay but i wouldn't be inclined to trust them as much

moving off the moding topic.

driving home from college today my indicator stalk is very sensitive. sometimes when i clicks off it hits a point where it just here the indicating noise (the tick) but its really fast and the lights dont come on. also sometimes when i go over a bump it ticks once.

what could this be? im thinking bad earth maybe??

help! its the most annoying thing in the world
DMC-12
Sounds like something is physically loose somewhere
the stigster
Well I tinted my lights I had to disconnect them and one side didnt go back in properly and a light was dim so I taped it in place. Driving around yesterday it wasn't as bad and I think it stopped now. Properly because the connections moved again.

Mkid
Instead of taping it in place, i'd try to figure out why it isn't fitting back in properly.
the stigster
thats what i can work out hence the tape :/
the stigster
getting this back box off a mate from college for 35 and then going to another guys house after college to get it fitted as he has a welder and some spare pipe to get it looking good.

note: it looks huge in the picture but its hardly big at all and should make a nice noise toung.gif



pictures of it on will be here tomorrow... watch this space
Mkid
needs polishing
the stigster
its on!! took a couple of hours to fit and 2 extra sections of pipe and some cable ties to hold it up... but its on toothygrin.gif super happy with how it looks (maybe to the left abit more) and it sounds great still pops which it awesome. maybe a video tomorrow toung.gif

enjoy a couple of quick piccys



Curtis
Please make a cut-out for that, i'm not gonna lie, it looks awful just hanging off the bottom like that. A simple slice with a small hack saw, followed by some finishing at it'll look a million times better
DMC-12
Completely agree, and is that like 5"?
Noodles
id say its a 3.5 inch

but im jus guessin


fart can mutch
the stigster
Yea its a 3.5 and its far from a fart can lol... I'm not to keen on cutting a slit in the bumper and this was a quick fix to the hole that was in my middle section, so this is on there til I can afford a middle section to replace it. Also the bumper goes up abit so im aiming to pull it to the left so it fits in there.

This is my first car and my first time putting an exhaust on so im open to suggestions that don't involve cutting the bumper toung.gif

Cut hole in wing.

Side exit like a baws.
Curtis
1) Go to a scrap yard
2) Find dead 106 (there's plenty)
3) Cut hole in that bumper
4) Keep original bumper in the garage
5) ????
6) Profit

kertis is rite.
the stigster
i wish there were pently of dead ones by me but theres not... sad.gif found out today it was bouncing around like there was no tomorrow so had to get that sorted with some cable ties. other thibg aswell is getting the same colour bumper otherwise id have to fork out for paint and halfords dont do the colour of my car in spray can form just the touch up stuff
Mkid
I'm going to guess that the heat will melt those cable ties... unless non turbo cars don't get that hot... I know mine would melt anything you put on it.
Curtis
yeah they do, around about 3-400 Celsius for a small engine like that. Dude, if you need any help regarding halfords, hit me up, i work for them ^_^
Vicent M.
I though It was another Curtis's posts about another Arosa lol
This one looks pretty nice. Engine? Seems to be a 1.6
Change the rims. Add some 16" and low it. And dont forget some Peugeot
sport decals!
the stigster
Its a 1.1 with a leaky cam cover seal.

I wanna keep it pretty stock with some cool bits, I got a twin air horn on a separate switch. Id like to strip it out but I have to carry alot around to it would all be on show...

With the cable ties there not wrapped round the back box but on a mounting point that's quite badly welded on but I didnt do it. I did stop yesterday after driving for a while and the closest ones were still cold but the tip was really hot so should be fine.
i bought a long exhaust rubber mount for halfords but on mount was to far away and the other was to close so the cable ties are going to have to do for now
Which halfords do U work at curtis?

If you want to paint something, go to a proper auto paint shop. They'll match the colour perfectly.

Oi, we do professional paints! it just requires the proper prep work


And i work at the coventry store just of the A45. I imagine thats a bit of a trek from yourself
the stigster
I went to my local halfords before work yesterday and asked if they could mix paint to match my car, but they said they couldn't, which I don't believe them...

Got a 100 out of it yesterday first time in that car quite pleased toothygrin.gif
Curtis
They're chatting s**t mate. Probably don't have anyone trained to do it, but they can.

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/...tegoryId=245215

just print that page and be like, explain yourselves! Click on the link near the bottom of the page and it should take you to a store that has the capacity to do it. Just need to head over to the parts desk

Meh. I just would rather trust someone who's been in the paint business their whole lives than someone who's been trained for half a day to operate a machine..
Curtis
nahh, i mean the pre-made ones, they're bang on. I'd always be a bit wary of the custom made ones, but if you test it on a small area, and it is s**t, they'll either refund or remake it for you
the stigster
awesome thanks for the info wink.gif


could of pics i adjusted where it was on the car and its knocking under on the middle bracket so might have to move it back abit.



rubber strap i got from good old halfords... made it fit.
