clio 1.2 project. (pic heavy)



  renault clio 1.2 16V
so i bought my clio in February and finally decided to modify it. it was an ebay buy for £600 so as you could imagine there was a few things wrong with most of which were cosmetic dents scratches etc. the only mechanical thing wrong with it was that the rear drums and shoes had gone but for £600 i had no complaints.
so here it is the day i bought it:

i tidied up the headlights as the lacquer had peeled off (i think) so i polished them up and you can see the difference between the two left before and the right after.
i was convinced to go down the more expensive route of buying some coilovers to get extra lows ;):

and here they are fitted:

(dont worry the locking rings are securely in place together now)
here is the end product rings wound all the way down:

i got bored so i stickerbomed the badge (probably going to get rid and paint the badges instead):

i have also fitted a clio sport spoiler, before:

sorry for the bad quality i have no camera :(
Thats all i have for you at the moment i will have some pictures uploaded at the weekend when the clio sport interior and alloys arrive.

Future plans include:
  • colour coding side strips and bullets.
  • clio sport rear bumper
  • maybe an audio install
  • clear indicators
  • have an xenon kit to fit.
  • colour coding/ carbon wrapping parts of the interior.

all criticism is welcome. thank you.:approve:

Could be good however I would probably paint the badge, but depends what else you do. (I will stand corrected but that's not a sport spoiler, is just off a higher spec like a dynamique etc?)

phew haha

i think will colour code it first as it transforms the car and paint the spoiler the same colour as the car.

looks promising! good luck :) from experience id say your main asset is alloys, mine looked 10 times better when i got some 172 alloys on it

some nice tastefull wheels, and a colour code will brighten the whole thing up nicely :)

Spoiler will be off a 172, but its not what everyone looks for, eg CUP spoiler... But a massive difference over standard anywho :)

im in the process of colour coding the side strips and bump strips.

im not sure what colour to paint the wheels when they arrive as i dont want to keep them silver. any suggestions?

what you doing to your car then ? at first i wanted to go subtle but its got boring and i want to stand out from the crowd so the wheels are either going to be focus rs orange or focus rs green, im undecided as of yet but come next friday i need to make a decision lol. get some pictures of your car up? want to see it
