Dan…’s Titanium Renaultsport 182



Small update, i've managed to tick one thing off the list - A Battery cover. It's made the engine bay much more tidy, I like it!

I also received a new cs.net sticker so I applied that, thought i'd try it in a different place to the norm -

And another couple of randoms, I just can't help it :eek:

I'm currently in the process of getting some quotes to get the engine cover and front strut brace sprayed so hopefully that will be one of the next updates! :)

Pretty much ruled out getting a Silver 182 until I see this. Looks so clean and fresh.

Pics aren't too shabby either ;)

What wax/sealant you using?

I used the Werkstat Acrylic stuff on my old Silver Clio, so easy to use and made the paint pop.

Love this! Such a lovely colour when the sun hits it :)

Makes me want to get mine looking good again, the paint work has gone to pieces though, needs a proper correction :(
 
With PFC Expo just around the corner I am trying to tidy up the car as much as I can - Which is proving difficult with the weather being so shite!

I made a start with the engine bay tonight, i'd already done a couple of bits a few weeks ago. I removed the air box surround, gave it a really good clean and applied a bit of back to black to bring the colour back to life.

I then gave everything else just a general clean:

Thanks guys!

Looks ace mate :smile:

Im thinking of taking my bonnet heatsheild stuff off completely..
Thank dude! I thought about doing that but once i'd given it a hoover it looked nice a tidy so decided to keep it. Need to get coolant bottle changed like you, makes such a difference.
 
Today has been a busy car related day!

Started the day by going over to a mates house so he could give me a hand adjusting my exhaust hangers. The exhaust sat a little too high, and too far over to the right for my liking - So much so that it's melted one of the exhaust surrounds.

Stupidly, I didn't take an after photo. lol

Back home I then started to prep it for tomorrow - it's first show in my ownership! :D

Whilst it was being cleaned the post man delivered me my new rear Renault Sport badge so I began to fit it..

It came off relatively easily but it left a bit of a mess:

^ Thank you, it's getting there :smile:


A couple of photo's of the car on the CS.net stand at PFC Expo this weekend, was a cracking show and I got a few compliments from people about the car which is nice :smiley:

I had a nice chat with the guy who owns this very tidy Phase 1 but I foolishly forgot to ask his username, anyone know who it is?

Although I had a good day at the show, unfortunately, this happened -

Fitting the powerflex exhaust mounts on Saturday must have cause extra strain on the exhaust where it looks to have been repaired previously (we didn't notice the welding when we were fitting the mounts!:rage:) which caused it to split.

It made the drive home from the show extremely loud... :confounded: On the plus side, at least I can have a nice new and shiny new exhaust!
 
Deliveries! :cool:

Luckily the boss was out of the office today when this got delivered :p

My mum went mental when she came into the living room and found me polishing the exhaust tips on her carpet :p
Will hopefully have it fitted by the end of the weekend - Which will finally give me ears a rest!

All round, very impressive.
