Don't plan on spending to much on it but as time goes on more little things will be done!

Yeyyy. Does kat like it? LOL. Needs more stripping and cage tbh. ;)
 
Hammer was to chip out the tar :) worked a treat!

Was looking on the Oreca web page at cages, just need to man up lel

Was out with Kat in it last night, TBH it ain't actually louder at 70 your just hear the rasp of the exhaust better when accelerating.

I find it better stripped cause you dont get the muffled din through the seats n stuff. Feel better to drive?

Well I’ve been meaning to update this for a while but never had the chance.

Since I’ve owned it I have tried to just keep it in good running order and prep it for its main purpose to me as a weekend/track car.

So far I have only got to the one track day up at knockhill as I unfortunately killed my 3rd gear when I was there. Since I have a road trip to France planned for after FCS I had little choice but to get the tools out and get it taken out and sent down to Agency Transmissions for a refurb. I cannot fault the service I received, if you are looking for a refurb I would get it sent off here!! Don’t really have many pictures as it was my first time and I was by myself so the main priority was to get it done! Check this thread for some more reviews - http://www.cliosport.net/forum/showthread.php?645488-Agency-Transmissions-AMAZING!&p=8755095#post8755095

When I had it in the garage I stripped out the interior and attacked all the tar with a heat gun. Some pictures below.

I also picked up some seats and harnesses off a member in here to get it a little more track prepared. Must say I really love these seats, they are maybe a tad on the tight side for me but this just allows for no movement when out for a drive/on track.

Also picked up a flocked dash, I really prefer this to the standard Ph1 dash which isn’t the easiest on the eyes!

I also spent today detailing it ready for FCS next weekend.
Snow Foamed
Washed 2BM with Dodo Juice Supernatural
Tardis
Clayed with Dodo Juice Born Slippery Clay Lube and Supernatural Clay
Polished with good old Autoglym SRP
Waxed with Colly 476S
Windows with Autoglym Fast Glass
Plastics with Autogylm Bumper Car
Tyres with Megs Endurance
Also painted my Front Calipers Black
