172 cup back to standard!



Well not really a project, but as from tomorrow I will be taking the cup back to standard (on the outside). This will include headlight conversion, rear lights, mirrors, spoiler, GDI stickers off and if I can find a reasonably priced set of turini's (doubt it though) the wheels.

As I didn't do a report of how I have modded the cup (mainly the engine) I thought I could do one of taking it back to standard.

Right then about time I put some pictures up as I have had the K tec spoiler now taken off!

Here's some pics of how the car looks before I started going back to standard:

Or pm me asap!

That's it for now, but should be getting the lights swapped this weekend with a member off another site. Fingers crossed!

Well I won an auction on ebay for the rear lights. I told myself I wasn't gonna pay over £35 inc. postage. Ended up paying £35.01 inc. postage!!!!

Midway through changing them over:

That's it for now I think I'm gonna try and source some headlights in the morning.

All I really need now are a set of turini's, but don't think I'm gonna find a set never mind a decent set as the "pro race" I got on there haven't got a mark on them and also got mint Toyo tyres to match!

Sorry mate too late! Purchased a set of standad headlights from a scrappy Yesterday for £50.

what made you change it all back? I'd leave the GDI sticker on the back of the car though!
Hi Matt, how you doing fella? Well I'm back at GDI on the 25th, so I don't think I will be turning up with no stickers on the car Andy will think I'm going somewhere else!

Tbh Matt I'm prob gonna be selling it the end of the year/beginning of next year, so thats the reason for taking it back to standard on the outside. I think it will be a perfect buy for someone wanting to do a conversion to throttle bodies, as the Omex 600 is in there thus taking the cost down!

Yeah I'm good ta. Hows you fella? How come your thinking of selling? Yeah leaving the Omex on it will make the job a lot easier for someone! I'm getting mine fitted soon!

Cool it's a great bit of kit, mate! The car just isn't practical for me anymore especially with me having the two dogs. Also I need to get a house too and can't really afford the house and the car! Also going to be jobless by the end of the year!!!

  Never above 25mpg
De-chavved it!! Excellent stuff. Morettes suck balls long time! The new RenaultSport badge is a bit hgih though?

s**t man that sucks! I must admit, mine isn't practical either! I can barely fit one guitar case in the boot, let alone several and an amp etc etc! lol. Was thinking of getting a little astra van too if money will stretch to it! Otherwise the clio interior will get trashed. I feel your pain!
Where you looking at moving too? What you thinking of replacing the Clio with?

I nearly never spot clio sports around the port and now you have made your rather distinctive motor a lot less distinctive I have less chance now!! :(

Well a few things I have been interested in when I get myself sorted Matt are:
LY 182 (totally standard) will be slower than mine, but hey I guess it's time to grow up!!
Corsa VXR (don't hang around and lush interior!)
For some reason the new fiesta is growing on me to, but will be s**t slow! Can't wait to see what the ST will be like next year!!!

I'm also thinking of getting a astravan 1.7 CDTI Sportive as I got 2 dogs and will be better for taking them out as 1 is malting and got very short hair and sticking in the cloth seats in the cup, which is a nightmare to get out!

*embraces S666 and welcomes him back*

you did the right thing son, looks the tits now.
Thanks fella

Ha ha sorry mate, but gotta be done to sell it!
 
nope never! Only ever seen a standard looking blue 172 one round the port.
Ok mate, well now chance in spotting me now anyway!!

Right more progress!

Bought the headlights from a Scrappy in Birkenhead yesterday for £50 (for the pair), but 1 needed a sidelight and the other needed a headlight, so cost me a little over 50 quid in the end. Have just finished fitting them and here they are on the cup:

Just after I finished fitting them, sat down with a coffee in my hand and got a call from the bodyshop that are spraying the mirrors mondial blue to say they were ready, so just picked these bad boys up:

It's all coming together nicely now, will post some pics up of the finished article tomorrow complete with mirrors fitted, stickers removed and a bloody good clean!!!

Thanks for looking

Ktec spoiler looks too at home on that bin in the bottom photo. Open the lid, its feeling cold ;)

Good choice on going back to standard. IMO all Clio Sport exterior's should be left untouched
 
Pics of the new mirrors (well old one's, but you get what I mean!!!) as promised, just gotta re-do all the wiring tomorrow

More pics tomorrow, cleaned up!

Mark
 
Well as the old headlights and mirrors are now off the car, I have got them for sale:

Headlights (as you can see in the picture they also come with the new wiring looms)
