From rat to showroom

  Clio 172
Ok so I posted a while ago when I first brought my 172 had some crazy ideas and was advised by just about every one to leave it alone but I went ahead and done it any way and this is what happens



i know it looks very s**t then the other day I looked at it and thought what the fcuk have I done so the restoration started today got rid of all the stickers and the bonnet wrap and gave it a good polish with some paint restorer and this is we're I am now ( a big improvement I know )




i know the alloys are dirty I started raining
  Fiesta ST-3

It looked hilarious with the 'rat' stuff and R26R stickers. One of them cars that I would genuinely laugh at driving by.

Looks much better now mate, got yourself a lovely looking motor!

Sorry if that was a bit harsh, but i really dont get it. fair enough if it was ''Renault Sport'', or ''172'' but R26R has nothing to do with a clio haha.

Anyways, looks far better now, gget your grill sorted and leave it at that! :)

Looks really good mate, good that you realised. However it is your car and your opinion about how it was before is all that really matters.
