@andy_coops did his thing today and polished and coated the Clio. It’s currently off the road for winter, so why not...
While it’s off the road, I’ll do a few maintenance jobs ready for a track day in April. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a new ARB for the rear.
I’ve managed to finish the shocks as the weather has been nice an warm. I’ve finished them off with 1k Lacquer, so I’m hoping that will hold out. The final finish isn’t perfect, but I think they’ll be ok.
Next up is some stickers? and then get them fitted.
Yep, i do think slightly stiffer dampers and potentially an rear ARB will help a little more, but this setup is pretty good. I'm not out to smash lap times etc, although i did time a few 9mins laps of the ring, however chasing times at the ring is a dangerous game to play.
It was MOT time and i feel a little bad... Car only just covered 700 miles in the last year. It's bad i know, the car really should be used more.
Have manged to give the shocks some paint, one more coat of colour and then 2K lacquer to finish them off.
My aim is to try and make some...
Decided to go with a small damper upgrade. Purchased some second hand Koninadjustables from a forum member, they were ok, but thought I’d get them strip down and re painted.
Condition was ok, but not quite good enough for the car.
Back and stripped
Gone with some Fiat Broom Yellow...
