Project Smooth Astor

Post by welsh_ben on Tue 01 Dec 2009, 07:18

Right over the next year ill be having the following done to the car
• boot flushed
• side indicators repositioned
• delocked
not much of a smoothing project i know but i like the front badge and door handles

you all know what the car looks like so wont bother doing before pics but this is what i want it to finally look like
pics used are old so car is lower plus wheel bolt has been replaced






Side indicator repositioning

Ordered a spare one from pug so i could ruin that firstly, £4 inv VAT which is pretty good for peugeot,got some orange led blocks off ebay for bout £7 and set about combining the two of them,plastic on the new indicator has been melted in order to get a snug fit,i still need to sand down the excess plastic around the edges where it has curled over but im happy with it so far

Its a really good idea that and i always thought about doing it on one of mine, the only real big problem i could see would be getting them to sit flush and be perfectly in line... the other option would be to mount it behind the plastic strip and drill say 4 holes through so it looks like there are 4 LED's in place there... could look S**T but i'm sure i've seen that somewhere before.

making it sit flush wont be a problem cause the edges of the led block are slighty curved at an angle,so i can simply touch it up with some filler to get it perfect,and in regards to the wing just drill a few holes in the bit where ill need the extra space behind it, only real way of making a hole big enough is to do little holes next to each other and then simply snap them if thatmakes sense lol

One of my favourite 306's on the club, not overly modded but the mods you have done are nice and subtle.

minor imperfections so just need to smooth them over with a bit more filler and then move onto colour coding

Should have removed the glass first, I've got mole grips if you need them.

Seriously though Ben it's looking nice.
