    3 Guys 1 Cup

    Yeah I think it's likely that it is box related too, but the mounts need sorting anyway so will do that and see if it helps.

    Off-road tyres by the look of it!

    3 Guys 1 Cup

    Harewood was this past weekend, trying to see how close we could get to @Tonyclio with a standard car. No surprises that the answer wasn't very near. Both drivers broke PBs though, so a pleasing day - the 206 hauled round to 69.90 and I found a 68.64 on the 4th and final run, the other driver...

    Trying to save a £300 172 cup

    Just gone through the whole thread - found it by searching for how to rip a Clifford alarm out. I've seen a lot of Clios over the years and I never would have guessed how much work has been done on it because it's tidy and looks a good one. Happy with the buy and probably happier now seeing all...

    Trying to save a £300 172 cup

    Bit of a thread revival, but we now own this car - I hope it wasn't stolen or cloned :ROFLMAO: https://cliosport.net/threads/3-guys-1-cup.839571/

    3 Guys 1 Cup

    So me and two friends for a while ran a 206gti180 as a track and hillclimb car - after an unfortunate incident with a tyre barrier at Croft, we decided to move on from the 206. Broke the 70s barrier at Harewood which for a completely standard 206 i'm pretty pleased with, I previously had a...

    Clios spotted around Leeds

    That might be my old car, HK54?

    Renault did the cambelt...

    I bought a 182 with timing like this when I bought it, albeit not done by Renault.

    Why is buying a 172/182 so hard?

    Agree with most points, except belt. It doesn't matter how many belt changes it's had in the past, only that the most recent one is good. Useful indicator of general maintenance I agree. Don't discount a driveway job, with the right tools it's not a difficult job for a competent person.

    Clio 182 for 1p!

    I had a fair bit of interest on the 182 I listed for sale, but no offers, so listed it on eBay for a 1p start. Whatever it sells for it sells for - have at it! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/154044598395

    Clio 172/182 hidden rust traps

    You can add the little floorpan strengthening sections with bungs in to the list. I think someone has jacked up on there before but it's taken out a big chunk of sill with it.

    AlexH's 182

    New cup shock, bolt and spring fitted. I do regret not changing the spring seat rubbers, but there weren't any in stock when I ordered the bits. I will get round to having a better look at the crustiness under here to at least get it treated. (the damp patches are wd40).

    AlexH's 182

    A month since the waxoyling.. how long does it take for the smell to go away? The drivers rear shock had sounded a little creaky on the few short drives I've done under lockdown, so I brought forward plans to change the suspension over to the new Cup shocks - replaced the rears in an evening -...

    Upper box mount

    You could tap it off and give it a bit of heat to help it on?

    AlexH's 182

    Last little job this weekend, whipped the rear quarter covers off to have a look at the rust. Nothing major, drivers side a little bit worse than passenger - both nothing more than discolouration - liberally coated in waxoyl and that should keep that at bay. Note cardboard: excellent at...

    AlexH's 182

    Needed to find somewhere to fit the timing strut - wasn't a fan of the position on the 306 as had to keep removing the plate and it just looked a bit naff - managed to get a couple of ally serrated rivnuts into the underside of the lower grille surround so that a couple of M6 bolts could retain...

    AlexH's 182

    With that done and waiting for some parts, fitted a tow strap to Clive. Fat M16 bolt through a pitking strap - the hole was only half-inch so had to be widened with a carbide bit. A standard HSS drill isn't hard enough to get through the toughened steel bracket. Got creative with step drill...

    AlexH's 182

    Metal finned articles fitted. Worthy of note that the radiator comes supplied with new m6 captive nuts that clip onto the radiator housing - so you need to make a note of where the old ones were so that the fan shroud and aircon condensor fit! Botls aren't re-supplied but some M6x15mm will do...

    AlexH's 182

    The old radiator and aircon condensor were shot, both original, so replaced with Valeo radiator and Thermotec KTT110086 aircon condenser - £60 delivered from Autodoc. Had to rotate the dryer so would fit the fixed end pipe on the Clio. Would have been nice to know that these are shipped full of...

    AlexH's 182

    And here's how it stands now! Bad radiator so took that out to change, but the new Valeo 732474 radiator (£40 from Mister Auto) didn't come with a bung for the extra hole - sourced one (M22 x 1.5) for a few quid off ebay thanks to someone on Facebook. Also destroyed the aircon rad taking it...

    What's your favourite car related YouTube channel?

    Bit of a stretch to say it's a car channel, it's more a machining/forging channel, but the guy does some car stuff (and some cooking, including peeling veg on a lathe). John Mills

    Corsa springs on a mk3 Clio

    Obviously it's all down to personal choice, but if that passes a shoe test, it's low enough already.

    I buy some sh*te

    So the new DVLA camper conversion guidelines hit the other day - the community is in uproar over it appearing to suggest that you can no longer convert a van to a camper unless it has a hi-top roof...

    AlexH's 182

    A few things - they're heavier, bigger and slower than a clio out-the-box, take a bit of winding up, but once they're wound up, they go well. I went quicker on the hillclimb in a mate's completely standard 206gti which was a bit heartbreaking. Considered going back into circuit racing, because...

    Currently being broken for parts, but these were from some of its last outings.

    Suspension for Road Going Sprint / Hillclimb

    Another consideration is that springs must retain original position, so you can't fit a coilover rear on a mk2 clio.

    AlexH's 182

    Acquired this 182FF from a friend last May, intending to replace my 306 as a track/hillclimb car as I was running out of patience with it. In the end, I kept the 306 so started to run the Clio as a daily. It had a wonky, blowy exhaust - so that was replaced with a stainless Milltek. Also...
