Andrew's RB 182 - Track Car Project

Hi Guys,

I managed to get my hands on a RB 182 Cup Pack over the weekend after much looking & debating. The car in question was brought from another Forum member.

First impressions of the car are good! Expectations are always high when there are so many good examples out there. Generally pleased with what I got & the future plans for it over the winter month's & early next year, Mean it can only get better... (Excuse the pun!)

Bad points :
No MOT
Small crack in lower front bumper
Headlights need cleaning
Rear ABS sensor needs replacing
Passenger window regulator need replacing

The current spec as follows :
Cup Pack all the usual comforts'
Eibach springs,
Ktec ultra exhaust
RS tuner map
15" OZ F1 alloys
ITG Panel filter
OMP Boss

Future plans :
New steering wheel
Sparco or Corbeau Buckets
Brembo Discs & Pads
Interior repaint
Full Cage
Wheel refurb & New tyres

So here it is, all I have done is remove the interior & plastics and repainted one or two cosmetic items. I have sold the steering wheel already and looking for a race wheel now. Any advice is welcome and appreciated.

I never really thought about selling them, Do you have anything in exchange wheel wise?

Another update..

After a couple of hours driving up & around the country on Friday evening I managed to get all the parts I needed from other members for a weekend of fun fun fun'

Spent all day Saturday in the car changing bits & removing the old items no longer needed.

Started the morning by removing the old, dodgy steering wheel & replacing with a Dished 350mm OMP one.

Moved the car into the lock-up to start the headlights & remove the seats. Just in time to avoid the lovely rain!

Finally decided to start the long process of headlight restoring, these were in a awful state! Will finish them Sunday hopefully.

Finally a rather amusing image of it parked next to a friends daily! The size difference is unreal..

Bloody hell, it changes hands again.

I owned this about 4 owners ago, and know the 3 people who had it before me. Was a great little car.

Guys,

This is more of a question than a update!

I've been looking on the net at Clio 182 RB on TD 1.2s either in black or anthracite. I have taken quite a liken to them,

I currently have it sat on a set of Matt black OZ F1's with the white writing..

Now, Do I sell/swap these for a set of TD 1.2s? Whats peoples thoughts on this?

Another update,

Spent last weekend Painting - Stripping - Fixing..


Firstly completed the upper front grille, I managed to get it off and after some preparation painted it Matt Black, Along with the badge & side bullets.

The other chunk of updates come in seat form' After I managed to finally strip all the interior out I went on a hunt for the perfect bucket seats..

Came across this pair of Brand New Motamec Seats online. So the following evening, drove to Bristol to collect them! Bargain too!

I'm now sorting a roll cage out & its booked in for a interior repaint early November, Which I cannot wait for'

On more of a sad note, It has developed one or two problems firstly being a lumpy misfire & a 'Eggy' Sulphur smell on idle. I've been searching on the forum regarding what this could be, Fairly sure its the Cat & Plugs/Leads/Coilpack. I shall order this parts soon to hopefully cure sicknote Clio.

More updates this weekend!

Haven't updated this in a while..

Here is a quick update of its current state & plans over the festive season, The car is currently fully stripped out now with all sound deadening removed.

Both seats are bolted in for trial fitment, I also managed to get my hands on a flocked Momo team 280. Which imo is the ideal size!

Managed to fit the UltraLight Doorcards too, Which are great! I need to get some door pulls & handle spacers ordered tho,

The car is officially booked in early January for a interior repaint, So between now and then I shall order a roll cage too.

Oh and the misfire is solved, Faulty injector! Thanks to @dann2707 for highlighting that for me, Whilst these were out, I managed to clean up the bay and painted the inlets black & add some carbon bits.

Anyways, Here are some terrible images of it, I will have it outside next week for proper images at least!

Another quick update from this weekend. First time I touched it since early November...

Spent yesterday restoring the headlights with the 3M kit I'm really pleased with the results tbh. I also managed to get the front back together too.

Today I concentrated on the interior finally fitted the Door pulls from Motamec and removed some more wiring.

This has't been updated in a while,

So the car is currently over at 'Beaniesport' in Milton Keynes. They've had it there for around 2 weeks now.

The main reason for having it there, was to complete some of the task I couldn't tackle on my own. Such as Brakes, Supsension etc..

Aswell as fitting these parts, they will also have the car road worthy again and have it MOT'd for me upon completion.

This week I took delivery of the battery cover from the GB. I managed to fit the carbon fibre dash trim too, looks really good imo.

That is his number, if you have Whatsapp you can always send him a message on that and he will get back.

He was on paternity recently depending on when you last tried.
