Fao ReNwilL Cont Southend

  Clio Williams 1, 182,197


Thank you for your comments that I asked for and thank you to the others who responded to my request of opinions of what I have done and going to do to the Willy.
For those who wonder what the fook Im talking about see the Southend Thread in this area.


I have kept all the original parts to the Williams. I.e the bumper and lights, Header tank and general bits.
So it can be put back to its original condition, Except its engine.
I have been very cautious about what has been done to the exteria. I have avoided skirts due to not wanting to attract to much attention. Lowering to avoid any nasty side effects. however I do agree there needs something doing to the rear. So I think a set of rear quad lamps should help and if anyone ever decides to make a nice rear bumper or a nice diffuser then Ill add that on. But for now its all concentration on the brakes !!
A decent set of bigger disks and 4 pots are going on this tuesday coming. So maybe there will a better balance between power and braking capability.
As for having more power than standard. Well what can I say !! Love it !! I still find it hard to belive that you was bouncing of your limiter.

If anyone else wants to comment then I would realy like to hear your comments.

If your wondering why I didnt stick this on the bottom of the Southend thread. The reason is that thread is not working properly on my Pc.

I agree with Renwill, your quad-quad conversion looks ace, probably the best I have seen. Personally I wouldnt do the headlights on mine but I would love to know where you got the fogs from and how much!!!

It brought it home to me that the standard willy is just not quick enough in such class company. I think I have a photo of your lump from the Southend meet. After doing the usual thing of buying a mint willy and saying to everybody that I would not touch it except for the zorst and filter, I am really considering other bits but just a bit dubious about reliability and maintenance of it.

Think your right in not doing too much to the geometry of the suspension as I dont want to change that either. Although it is not strictly original you can still tell it is an authentic Willy and therefore deserves respect. Good on you..and dont go too mad, you have to draw the line somewhere!

Thank you for your comments !! Much appreciated !!
I dont think I spoke to you on saturday or did I ?? I fooking usless with names !!
The fogs come from Esquiss to fit the bumper which is a Joker 2 again from Esquiss.
Yep I make you right about lowering !! Besides it handles well enough, so why rock the boat. The engine mods should all be reliable coz all your realy doing is upgrading the cams, veniers and chip with a moddified head.
the strut brace I was very sceptical would make much difference. But hey it does and I wouldnt go back to driving without it !! the header tank was just cosmetic to liven up the engine bay along with the blue hoses.
I dont think there is much more to do to it apart from the rear lights me thinks.
------------------------------------------ so there the line is drawn.
Id like to see that photo of the engine bay if you have got it !! I havent got any of my bay !!

Yeah, I spoke to you for about 30 secs..I was wearing the blue Reanault F1 top. Anyway, so does that mean I have to get a new bumper to accomodate the fog lights?? Or will they fit the standard one?

I gather all the rest would of come from Hill Power..can I be cheeky and ask the cost??

Oh by the way the number plate is cool, looked at getting a C11 O?? one myself cause the C110 WMS has already gone to a 1.4RT!!!! Somebody on here??? Have to let me have your e-mail address cause I havent got a website to post it on here from. It would make a cool desktop!! Let me know what resolution you want it in too. i.e. 1280X1024 or 1024X768.

Unfortunatly you will need to get a new bumper to accomodate the lights.

Yes the engine work is Hill Powers handy work.
Cost you dont wanna know trust me !!!!

If it is worth the dosh then its not a problem. Are you happy with it??
