  • S1 Rallye

    hi guys, been on here for 6 months or so so thought id put a thread up on the life of my rallye in the 6months ive owned it! it was a 110bhp 1.3 that was totally standard.

    when i first picked it up it had 12month mot and 6 month tax, dont know how it got the mot as the brakes were shocking, the rear axle was seized solid, 3 bald tyres and the boot floor was a bit rusty!

    on the way home the lack of suspension on the back resulted in the boot flooe being pushed up by the axle and causing a bit of damage!





    got that fixed up and then got it lowered by rickyp along with s2 steelies







    then got the bottom half sprayed as the passenger door had a poor repair, and the new door had a wonky decal so decided to get it tidied up along with the 4 arches, and a new decal set!







    then the engine started playing up, it only started to cause problems when it rained so i think water was getting in somewhere!!

    so not one for doing things by halves me n rickyp converted the whole car to s2 wiring loom along with sticking the 2 prong 16v engine in!

    also refurbed the hole engine bay!













    i then attended a cliosport rolling road day and it roaded at 137.2bhp, coupled with the rallye box it doesnt half shift!

    then just started tarting it up and swapping things, first off was the battery cover, couldnt find one for ages but managed to get one off a quicksilver!



    then got the original s1 steelies banded to 7" wide, making them et-3 approx.













    then to updated the engine bay a bit more changed to jp4 rockers







    and thats where it stands at the moment! comments n critisism welcome!

    cheers

          I'm thinking of getting a set of steels banded too. 7" looks very good although wider would be perfect for hills!

            if you go any wider there will be problems with tyre to arch scrubbing!, rears have already rubbed the arches back but could do with a bit more taking off

              hubcentric spacers? I'm with you mean it's catching the outer arch?

                im not a fan of the steelies, just a personal opinion though. Rest of the Rallye is lovely, that bay looks amazing, and the shell looks very very clean!

                  yeah on the outer arches, so if you put spacers on it will make it worse, unless you get bands on the inside aswel as outside

                      Went for 185/55/14 as there's not much choice in 14's without a massive change in rolling radius

                            Only just came across this thread. The car looks superb now mate. Well done, you should be proud of yourself.

                            I kinda like the banded steels too, how does it handle though? Compared to 6J steels?

                            Looks great now the bay has been repainted and cleaned up.
