Hi,

I did exaclty the same conversion some years ago and i have solved the overheating at track days by turning up the (interior) heating to max after a couple of rounds.
By this the rad has a chance to get rid of some heat... as long as you leave the windows open a bit, it does not get too hot inside the car..


btw: where did you get your arches from and how mich wider are they than the hgt/marea wings??

Yeah heaters help smile

the arches i got off ebay, similar to 206GTI arches. They probably add about 25mm each side over the HLX wings, so not far off the standard hgt wings.

No mate, The standard HGT/Coupe track is wider than the standard HLX track, and the HGT wings are wider than the HLX ones.
This meant the tyres were very close to being wider than the arches and although it probably wasnt essential, i wanted the car road legal (ie tyres within arches).

Shame to sell after all the effort mate. Why not just find storage for a while?

If you can find some in Dudley direction at a reasonable cost for two or three cars I will even share the costs.

it would be mate, storage not really an issue, apart from the occassional ear bashing, i could leave it down the garage for a while. I even made some mods to allow a cover over my trailor, incase it came storing it on that smile

I would fell shamed if it was just sat there doing nothing also though.
