Thought it's about time i shared my project, it started 2 years ago. I was randomly searching Autotrader and i found a 50k 172. Had a quick look and it seemed clean and in "ok" condition. I only really had the intention to use at the weekends and trips to the Nurburgring etc. I...
Love this picture so thought i'd share. Had the Clio for a couple of years and it's always been an ongoing project. I'll actually start a progress thread soon as I've done a fair bit since i got it and also plan to do a lot more... The BMW is the daily! Actually the best car I've...
Does anyone have issues with getting supplied tyres fitted. I've called 3 places in Basingsoke, two won't do it and one want's £25 a tyre, which is just ridiculous...
Anyone else have this trouble?
Looking at a little upgrade on the pads and disc. Does anyone recommend these:
After 1 year of ownership i decided to sell the car. I've done 20000 miles this year and they have all been good! Heres some pictures from yesterday after i took a deposit. Made sure she was gleaming before she was collected today.
Just want to say thanks to everyone on...
I need some help.. or someone to machine my car... I don’t want to spend loads as i will wax it etc after. Just need all the scratches and swirls removed... :-)
Anyone got any recommendation or want to do it for some cash..
need some advice. I need to do my brakes this weekend. I was looking into the Bembos HC pack with 2500's, but for now i dont have the cash.
I am after standard Disc's and Pads to do me 6 months. Anyone got any opinions of these:
Renault Clio 2.0 2001 Eicher Brake Disc (Front)...
Really stuck.. I'm using a flash website template. I have edited lots of the text etc, but now want to add another page. I have created that, but i can't work out how to link it into the site..
Can anyone help me!?
Not too great on photoshop but can the basics.. Just wondering if any knows of a link to a tutorial on lowering cars... i guess not, but any help would be great.
Or any photoshop tutorials on cars would be cool..
Changed the plugs today and all ok. I knew there was a gasket on the main inlets, but i was not expecting a rubber seal on the back. Is this a part from Renault? I have put it back on but not great, split reather bad and probably not a good seal..
I'm struggling to work out where my exhaust is rattling.
Got a stealth box, it has had a new bracket fitted at the back with extra padding so it does not sag.
Had the exhaust on a ramp and given it a good shake but cant seem to find the place its rattling. It was not...
My car is really hesitant for about 5 minutes after I start.
Any ideas what I would need to look for?
I do need to change the plugs, not sure what else could be causing it..
Any ideas welcome.
Finally managed to get some half decent shots of the car.
Picked up the car 3 weeks ago with some problems. It had just failed the MOT on bad rear brakes, broken spring. It also needed a full service and a good detail.
So far i have done the following
Eibach Sportlines -30mm...
Just found out that my inner cv boot has split (drivers side). I think this might have been split for a while. There is still grease in there but not much, can the gear box oil come out from there? or does this only happen when you pull out the drive shaft?
Cheer for the help.
My car needs a new set of springs. This is the car now.. Is this a standard ride height for a 172?
I need to change these ASAP for the MOT. Has anyone got any opinions on the 30mm lowering springs from K-tec http://www.k-tecracing.com/show_product.asp?id=1152
Just bought myself 172. This is my first Clio and first Renault. Loving it so far. Need to do a little work on it to get it up to a high standard again.
Pics to follow at the weekend! :rasp:
