306 Cabby

Post by Simon on Mon 07 Nov 2011, 06:24

Picked up a 306 cabby this afternoon, not sure yet what i'm going to do with it, but either way it will need paint and mechanical tlc





a few dents down the off side and rear screen split still thinking it over what to do with it, break, tidy up or modify

Tidy up I'd say, nice looking car.
Could get expensive though.

Non at all had an op last week so nothing going to be done on it till Feb anyway, iam considering selling as is due to so many parts missing your mate told me the hood worked but couldnt show me due to battery being flat but on opening the hood cover there is no mechanism so obviously it wouldnt work which leads me to think if he's lied about that to get the sale what has acctually happened with the engine ???

2 options here now

1. buy a moonstone 1.8 meridian xsi or 6 use the front end engine/box from that and then source the missing parts to get hood working and sell on

2. sell it on as is

I have sent him a text asking for the locking wheel key and stereo (dvd player) face but he says all that he has for the car is in the car

Had a little play with this today

Gave the N/S a polish and it came up quite tidy just a shame there are dents on it




Also went to fit some gti-6 skirts that i got laying around and was suprised to see the cabriolet is actually shorter than a hatch




This is probably why the roof doesnt work Sad
