    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    Phoned my dent-guy up today to see if he was working/available this coming weekend. Tells me that he’s free today if I take it over.. £30 quid later and a bit of stretched metal, and the dent was a gonner The longer I look at this car, the more I’m lovin’ the Matt Red paintwork. Looking...

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    Thank you sir! I’m not too bothered about the reg of the RB, that’s my private reg. I’m only hiding the Red one until I fit the new number I bought.. 😉

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    Well just over 24 hours of ownership and I’ve already dismantled the bugger!! Wanted to see what the deal was with the dent on the rear qtr, and see if my local dent-man would be able to get behind it? Of course, it’s a Renault, loads of open space back there!! Tried to take a pic of the dent...

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    😁😁 I see where you going with that! Unfortunately it’s not #1 I’ve got, but I did see that Renault sold it recently, and it was up for like 12K 😲 Bit rich for me that!! The R26? No I sold that in March to one of my mates who fell in love with it during a few laps of Blyton at CS19 😉

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    Very comfortable & grown up compared to the Clio 182.. just as the motoring press says. It's stiff as F**k on the roads, but there's no creaks or rattles so it seems well put together. Not really driven in in any sort of anger yet, as I let my mate drive it home whilst I was in the 182. When I...

    28 in total, 11 in Red, and 17 in Grey... it’s nearly Pagani levels of rareness... for a Renault!? 🤷🏼‍♂️😂

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    Yes mate, was going to give you a knock up, but was in & out early doors and didn’t want to break any covid bubbles. Did steal a quick pic at one of your best photo-shoot spots tho.. 🤫😉

    Big Steve’s Clio 200 Raider

    When Renault launched the Clio Raider in the UK, they used my 5GTT Raider for a feature in Auto Express magazine: And since then, I had a secret hankering to own a Clio Raider one day and complete my collection of Raiders.... but given the original planned run of 50 Cars in the UK, I figured...

    Well @Coops Mk1 does not speak with forked tongue 🐍 Had a flippin awesome bank holiday weekend driving around the Derbyshire Dales in the Clio and she just relished it: It has certainly made an impression on me this little car, so much so I even gave it a clean when I got home this evening to...

    Big Steve's RB Clio 182 Cup Restoration

    Got it all done so I can drive and enjoy it round Badgerland this weekend.. 8:00am tomorrow morning, we set off to Ashbourne. Mind you, whilst re-assembling the front bumper this morning, I saw the new JR Driveshaft has split it’s inner CV boot, so it’s deposited a nice load of axle grease all...

    Cycled the 28 miles over to near Cambridge today to collect the Clio and it was simply Wonderful... Sun shining, bit of frost on the fields...

    Hmmmm..... no... are they also a spot for stone chippage...?! Balls...! 😣 I’m not really a fan of getting half a panel protected... because you’ll always seen the edge of the film... 🤔 Might have a chat with Matey tomorrow when I collect it!!

    Big Steve's RB Clio 182 Cup Restoration

    Following the paint correction and polishing, I wanted to have a go at this PPF game, to see if it protects the front of the car from everyday driving life. Found a guy local to me who’s an Xpel authorised installer so dropped the car off to him this Wednesday, and he’s just shared with me some...

    Popped my reproduction b-pillar badges on today. Gave them a little spruce up with some silver paint first: Then after measuring out where I wanted them, it was just a case of sticking them on.. Chuffed with the finished results: Thanks for taking a look! 👀

    Took the Clio out again for a drive last Sunday to while away a few hours, and even came across a Mk1 Focus RS for a little play with at the end of my drive.. Absolutely love driving this car at the moment, but (as you can hear) the vibration from the PMS Shifter is getting on my T1ts...
