Clio dimma #14



  Clio 1.8 16v dimma
Hi thought I’d post the progress of my 1993 clio dimma I believe is number 14. Brought the car back in 2018 as a project and finally got around to building it hopefully to get out in next year.

it’s not has a full restoration as I felt it was genuinely very good as a base model and if I’d gone too far I think it would have took the fun out of it as I just see it as it needs to be used and enjoyed

hope you like my progress

Awesome build 👍

And agreed, that front bumper does look like the bumper from hell!!

I greatly admire anyone with the dedication, to bring a car back to life, great work. Try and do some track days/meets next year, I am sure a lot of people would like to see it in the flesh.

I’ll be glad to get it out next year but this is just a show car now but hopefully I’ll have a 106 dimma I have that will be able to join you on track once I make a start on it

Come on a couple of track, don't track it, a lot of people would love to see it. I will run you around in the Meglio.
