If you ever need that paint corrected (if not done already) let us know. I always wanted a black phase 1, could make that paint mirror like.

Love this, looks amazing.

Keep up the good work.

Only wants lowering springs and that is it, keep everything else standard!

Ive machined the paint back as per my previous pictures to get it to a fairly dent standard, in the summer things will get a bit more intense.

Cambelt etc all arrived today in less than 24 hours after ordering from Renault Wolverhampton, great service from them!

Even though I work for Renault it was cheaper by over £100 to get all the parts from another dealer 🤣 work that one out!

I shall get it all fitted once the weather warms up a tad.

Stripped off the front end today in prep for when I do the cambelt etc at the end of the month.

Noticed the radiator was damp a couple of days ago so I’ve taken it off to be replaced with a new unit.

Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be able to clean up everything behind the bumper etc in the evenings.

I removed the passenger headlight purely to get to the 2x air pipe so I can re-glue the fabric back together.

Great effort all the way through.

Surprises me that such good examples get anywhere near a scrappers to begin with.

That before-and-after bonnet detail - lol! Just all it needed was some time and a bit of effort....

Looking good, wish I had arch liners like that! I should have some rad captured nuts if need some new ones.

I've ordered a nissens rad as you mentioned in my other thread. Did the rad not come with the captive nuts?

yeah that's the one! was looking at trading my 220 Trophy in against it at the time, sent a big detailed email to find out some more info as it was a 8hr drive and got like a 1 line email back with a quote saying £x amount down and £x a month with no mention of anything I had asked lol lost confidence and ended up driving 2hrs further to lands end for one!

Aye mate. I ended up sacking it off and getting another one. Tried multiple caps

It must have just been a bad batch like because the second one I got was fine. I had to trim a piece of excess plastic on the second one though as it again stopped the cap fully seating
I’ve used one before when I had my Cup, I’ll see how I get on.
