Not up dated this for a while now forgot I’d even started it to be honest. Not much has changed on the car really just been racking up some miles and keeping it maintained. At the start of the year me and a mate had a trip up to Scotland and done the 500 we covered around 2000miles over the week...
Love it and the fact your doing it all properly. What happened to your old one did it end up getting broken for parts or did you manage to sell it as a hole car as was needing an engine if I remember correctly?
As above at around 6 on Saturday managed to park next to it and grab a picture, seen the car around a few times but noticed today it had a cs.net sticker in the window so thought I’d see if your on here
Cars looking really good mate, Looks brilliant on the f1s especially being 16s they just make it that little bit different from others :up:

The car also had a new comete drive shaft and two brand new mitchilen pilot sport 3s on the front for the MOT which was done last Monday as well as getting all the tracking set up again. I then had the remaining 4 days of the week to get a few miles on it driving to and from work before an...
Cheers mate , can’t rememberer exactly some bits I got through eBay, the wishbone polybushes were black series and believe I got them off someone on here but think they are around £100 new, the anti roll bar ones around £50 , steering rack £30 and the dog bone mount ones are about £40 I...

Now when it came to fitting the new cambelt and dephaser I had some help from a good relitive who has all of the correct timing...
Then set about sorting the engine. Removed the sump, cleaned and refitted with a new gasket as was leaking before
Also removed the cam cover to refit/ seal as was leaking
And refitted ,ensuring it was torqued down correctly with new cam end seals to avoid it leaking again
Also fitted the...
So anyway painted the front subframe and bottom arms as well as fitting the pollybushes to the bottom arms and antirollbar as I rebuilt it.
Also removed all the front arch liners and cleaned and wax oiled around the front end
This is all the pictures I got of parts but also got fresh gear oil , coolant, ATE type 200 brake fluid, genuine Renault front wheel bearings , fatty induction kit set up and probabley other stuff I can’t remember but you’re getting the idea:grin:
So I set about removing the engine and box from...
Full LUK clutch kit
NGK platinum spark plugs
Renault oil and filter
Gaskets sump plugs and washers etc
Brembo HC max front discs , ferodo ds2500 pads and rebuild front calipers
Rear discs were good so brembo rear pads
After using the car for a few months until the MOT ran out and with the cam belt being due I took it off the road to sort any issues and do the belt. Although I’m not very good at remembering to take pictures of everything here’s most of the stuff I collected.
Full pollybush set for the front...
