    One day one of those strips will save you, and you'll be forever glad I've tortured you for all these years...

    Are you using a black plant pot to hold the car up on a hill?

    rofl, that's no plant pot that's a TD pro race 1 :wink: and no its not holding the car, its the backup for the axle stands under the chassis rails that you can't see in the pic.

    not a stripe fan either I'm afraid, I still need to rip the white decals off the wheels too, too fussy imo

    Quick pop to Renault at Mansfield today as I found a warranty recall letter in some old post from last year.

    Been a long long time since I updated this one too, forgot how good the car looked over the years!lol!

    Since the last update its had some more bits, again loads of wheel changes and just cranked the mileage, 163k now just over!

    Added the new plate that came off one of the clio mk1 16v's I broke couple of years ago, ran it on turbines for a bit, then more recently White willy wheels with some balls out madness in between.

    i'll do a better update of how she stands currently soon, as it'd be nice to have a thread going for all three of my sheds!

    Right, did some more bits on the car this morning to return it further to standard.

    Removed the H&R springs and the whiteline RARB then fitted the original cup springs, so tis now at standard ride height.

    So now sitting at standard height on standard wheels :smile: Only mods now really are Janspeed exhaust (I think it is, changed it that many times I literally can't remember!!loll!) and NS2-R tyres

    needs a wash next and interior needs a good clean and spruce up after the winter

    cheers!

    I preference it modified :worried:

    On a slightly different note, what filters did you use when you took those last bulk pics? I noticed the pics are shadowy in the corners.

    Breaking news, washed it and cleaned the interior. Plans to return the h&r's soon as I've acquired coilovers for the Odyssey....

    Looks lovely mate! Really like the steering wheel too.

    Do you still have your ARB? It for sale?

    Cheers Louis, she's getting a bit old now and well worn like a city sauna slapper but she keeps on trucking!

    I do still have the arb, however it's alas not for sale as it's destined for my mk1 track car! Sorry!

    Looks great for a leggy old girl. I liked the look on the white willy wheels, but oem may be the way to go as 1*2s rapidly approach cult classic status and original cars are outnumbered by track slags.

    agreed, most are now track 'prepared' (read bodged) so looking to keep both mine standard enough to put to totally stock as and when required!

    Tbh I think it'll be a long time before a ph2 is classic. Ph1 definitely, but not ph2.

    In my opinion.

    Yeah it's a while off yet, but when trophy prices are beyond mortal men then the surviving standard 1*2s will start to creep up.
