Thats gotta be one of the most satisfying looking resto jobs ever, love a ph1 in black, shame I only had one that was a bucket and was only on the road for 24 hours!

On the road for 24 hours? what happened?

Yeah really enjoying this one, couldn't have asked for a better base to work with.

Center caps fitted, all wheels rebalanced, previous sticky weights removed and the insides all cleaned out.

2nd time I’ve driven it today since I got it.
Drives really nice, feels tight, no strange noises and I haven’t even heard any rattles from the interior which is strange for a Clio 2!!!

Lookin' good. Needs white/clear side indicator lenses. Doesn't look right with the orange ones imo. Also Silvervision indicator bulbs.

In for an M.O.T today @ Renault Trowbridge. All going well until the n/s/r shocker decided to spring a leak :(

no advisories though 👍

Ive ordered 2x genuine shocks.

Such a shame, would've been so nice to have passed with no advisories after all the work you've put in!

At least it's not a big job to replace them!

Yeah, i could tell it had literally just happened as it was dripping everywhere whilst it was jacked up on the M.O.T ramp.

So I’ve taken the side skirts off to give everything a clean behind etc. The amount of mud and shite that was caught up behind there was quite comical.

Having the skirts off aloud me to straighten and repaint/hammerite the sills where clowns have been jacking the Clio up in the past.

I also cleaned out about a KG of mud behind the arch liners.

I side down, 1 to go.

Drivers front properly bent over..

Cleaned up and painted the lower sill/jacking points. Also gave the insides of the skirt a good going over.

Those bent jacking points weren't all that bad really, straightened out nicely too! I did mine this summer but some bits I couldn't get back to an oe look. I BH electroxed mine after deox gel but I do worry about the rust trapped in the layers, dynax ub under the skirts too for extra protection.
