Bens orange 1.2



Alright guys,
finally got round to sorting out a little project thread on here for my malaga orange 1.2.

This is my first car so i dont want to be throwing loads of money at it.

this is what it looked like at stock

So the first thing i did was get some alloys, they were cheap and i fancied something drastically different to shitty steelies, some bk 299's were for sale in brighton for £100 but managaed to knock it down to 80

So then it sat like this

decided to colour code it a bit, so did the front bumper inserts and have ordered enough paint to do the side strips
colour match is good i think for some spray cans and a few hours of my time

so hopefully by the end of this week i will be lowered as much as possible on coilies :D

thanks for looking
feedback and ideas are welcome
 
got a few other little mods, such as xenon white bulbs, some ktec rear lights i managed to get on ebay for a pittance, stubby aerial, sport door sills , chrome gear stick insert, some minor carbon wrapping inside the car, did the side strips, but will be pulling it all off when i colour code the strips too

The colour coding on the bumper looks good mate, well worth the few hours work! Got any more pics of the car? Not a fan of the wheels tbh, but everyone likes there own stuff! How low are you taking the car?

Let us know how your coilies go matey, have been umming and arring about getting some, especially since u can pick them up dead cheap.
 
Update.

Fitted coilovers properly today, did it yesterday but did the top mounts horribly wrong, but fixed them today and its all good

only problem is i lowered it too much! and had to rush out to work

got a few pics, will raise it and take a few snaps tomorrow

Haha the wheels aren't too bad mate! just the tyres need a clean & black ;)

Sounds nice! You could always go down the rep route if you wanna save some cash & effort, or keep an eye on ebay/gumtree etc for people selling up

they do indeed!

and yeh i do like the standard 172 wheels, i would get them done in anthracite to match my bullets and maybe some cheeky orange renault logos on the centre cap, lol , but cannot find any close to me or for a decent price with postage

and the rear bumper is something im considering getting from a sport, would need a respray but would look great

also i thought of your car the other day as some kid pulled into college with lensos on his citroen c2, the wheels were nice, the rear ones with about .5 camber (yum) , however the car was nasty, they look much better on a beautiful clio!

Yeah they are pretty awesome, gloss black would look ace on yours.....just sayin.... ;)

the 172 bumpers are worth it haha, look so much better without the black plastic strip

Haha cheers ;) cant wait to get them back on! :( haha yeah not a fan of C2's, although theres one that goes round near me with some silly powerfull engine in!
 
Little update:

picked up my 15" bbs today for just over £50

very happy, great condition and plenty of tyre left :)

just gotta get them bored out and ill see how they look on the clio :)
 
small update.

failed its mot last week, on 3 things, loose bolts on one suspension arm, exhaust leak, tie rod end.

replaced the tie rod end, tightened the bolts and used gun gum to fix the exhaust leak.

the leak is the joint with the cat and the center pipe. This is because i fitted alexcarters sportex exhaust and then re positioned it all to sit in the bumper.

today i passed the mot, and will take my wheels to get the tires off and wheels bored out tomorrow hopefully, hope to post a big update soon

Cheers buddy, side mouldings are easy, the rear ones slide to the front until they click then they just fall off, the fronts are held by a little pin like thing, pop that out and they do the same but sliding to the back
