Restoration Notes

This truly spectacular Peugeot 205 Dimma has been meticulously restored to concourse condition, with a full nut and bolt rebuild from the ground up. Every nut and bolt of this car has been electroplated and the entire car protected to preserve this 205 for many years to come. The work on the car was carried out meticulously, by the owner at the time along with Dimma approved companies, with even input from Dimma themselves in the restoration of the wheels being carried out by Dimma. To give an idea of how ‘new’ this car really is, this is a non-comprehensive list of the parts replaced or restored on this stunning 205.

It is a testament to Justin who spent over 5 years re-building this car and making it his obsession to get this right!
