Post your Ghetto Fabrication / Modifications "Photos only"

So the neighbor made the mistake of buying french and now his 206 is flashing lights when the doors are opened, they come up at random times at night draining his battery. Central locking is playing up as well as his wipers. So what do I do being a nice friendly guy? I start telling him horror stories about 1000gbp BSI repair jobs and how Citroen/Peugeot dealer can't find wtf is wrong with the electrics even if the plug x10 Lexias in multiplayer gaming mode. Most likely deeming the repair to expensive and not worthy.
No actually what I also did, apart from telling the stories, I unhooked his BSI module, I removed the casing, didn't bother detaching the boards from one another, and just shoved it in the oven at 200deg gas mark 6 for total of 5-7min. At the end I gave it a Dr. Oetker certificate of excellence...

No more headlights, locking, wiper problems. Cleaning the pcb with a toothbrush and petrol also helps get rid of any previous water damage etc, before putting it in the oven. If you are interested in the process here is a video of how to do it. I've even repaired laptops using this method

Oven method saved me also. 10 thing out of 15 I have saved
like that. If baking first time doesn't help try another time
with slightly higher temp. 205 C or 210 C
As a mark that temp is correct put 0.5 cm peace of solder wire
on the AL foil also. When that peace of solder gets "liquid" after 5-9min
wait 60 sec more and take out the peace from the oven.

Also there are a lot of tuts for Arduino controlled oven heater/re-flower

Best regards,

Who wants to see some ghetto hacks on the wheel brake cylinder drums? Manual says to remove the shoes but a correct length bolt or piece of cut wood jammed between the shoes can save you hours of hassle. It's a 2 man job, one to spread the shoes and the other to insert the piece, but if you are ghetto legend like myself you shaped it perfectly so you can use leverage to get it in by yourself.

Bonus tip: If your pipe is turning with the nut, stop, it will snap the lines. Push the cylinder out and now rotate the cylinder itself. I've heard heat and insta cooldown will release it but haven't tried it.

So last year I had to scrap the front subframe because the nut build inside holding the wishbone came undone (spinning) after taking the arm off to check up on something. And it really is a wonderful engineering scam, my hat off to those boys. You can't get a tool inside to hold the nut so you can tighten the bolt. I've already noticed other people suffering from similar issues now that the Berlingos started to age, so decided to make this post.
I should I have said I almost scrapped the subframe, but after a lot of thinking I figured the best method to fix it. So the challenge was actually to align the nut, make sure bolt goes straight, and simply weld the nut to the subframe, instead of that tin of metal that is hanging on. Picture is a little bit hard to tell from but it's better than nothing:

No you can not get a MIG gun in there (at least you won't be able to see), it has to be with a stick welder and you gotta be careful not to weld something you don't want. There is just enough gap to achieve this. I guess I was also lucky the nuts were in good condition and spinning the bolt through got enough bite instead of struggling. I guess you could try adhesive methods like JB Weld, but knowing my experience with these overpriced epoxies...
