Another shot of interest for all. I overlaid the cascu panels on the deon and found engine lid was spot on. Rear boot was some 3 inches or for those in metric 76 mm longer. However the...

Hi all

After your measurement Ross and cascu's saying the 206 and 246 were the same curiosity got the better of me. I just had to drag the stuff out of the way and measure the deon at the rear....

What deon do you have? Is it the one with the lancia engine that takes the whole engine/gearbox and subframe? The later one where it bolts in? Or the ford 2.9 v6 option?
Either way you'll need...
