  Golf GTI, Jap Tank.
What a find! Looks in good condition. Like the work your doing too! :)
 
  Clio Cup Mk1
Thanks everyone ;)

Using a car in such a good condition as a track tool is a shame.
I'd rather use a good one on track that a bad one that might fall to bits the first track it goes near.

It's in a good condition now. When i found it, it's wasn't as good as now !
Shocks absorbers, brakes, engine accessories, everything was to change !
Paint is not very good as pics shown it (lot of gravel impacts)
But the frame was very clean to start a track project

At the begining, after having unmount some elements as absorbers (Cup specs), ECU (cup chips), carpet (roll cage fixations), I realized that it was and old Clio Cup from the 90'swhat explains the mileage, gravels impact, etc...


More pics on track later :cool:

Ah, ok! Thought you found a nearly new 16S and now ruin it on track;). Unfortunately they are so rare and at least a few should be kept original. But since it was a cup it should be a cup:D! Have fun with it!

If it were in a really great condition, it will be not on a track but in my living room ! :D
Except the paint, there were many things that not gone with a 100% origin 16s like seats (they were those who suits in a 1994 model), and a compete restore would cost more than a track preparation ;)

+1! I love them! how wide are they do you know?

Originals Cup are in 6.5" wide but there exist also in 7" but it's rare.
Thanks for comments on my color choice for this wheels, even on french forum everybody loves it ! :eek:
 
Nice find that, nice progress too.
6.5J! :D think ill be ringing up some french renault dealers! there awsome!
The steel wheels painted gold are valver spare wheels, you don't need to get them from abroad. I'm not too sure if they are ideal track wheels tbh (from memory they weigh a fair bit)

I've got both sets of steelies lol

the 7j ones are williams spare steel wheels - so you have to either buy them new or find four spare willy wheels like I did :)

They're going on the 172 at some point when its lowered!

In France they are Williams spare wheels and they are 7" wide in this case.
 
^ ah ok, just seen one of the posts above yours :)

Ah oui.

C'est bon.

J'adore le cochon d'inde.

thanks to speak french but i don't understand what you mean !


that looks bang on, wish i could find a barn like that,....

It was really a surprise, i was looking for a VW Beetle of the 60's, and the Clio was found in the barn of my sister's boyfriend grandmother house (hummm don't think the end of this sentence is really english, sorry !)
they proposed me the clio for less than 1000£ so i accepted immediately !
