Hey, mechanical apprentice newby

Hey everyone!

I am all new to this ive currently got a 02 plate clio 1.2 16v

hey mate, wonder if you cound fab up something for the ecu bracket that always breaks so easily

Also, a little Jap inspired here and it may have been done before but; Ive seen on EK4 Civics and the like that people make some washer/spacers to lift/tilt the standard rear spoiler, would this be possible on 172's/Dynamique's etc I wonder?

Maybe you could also make some ally footrest plates???

Just a few ideas I thought I'd put to you!
This would be possible :), the footrests would be easy enough just a sheet bit of ally with i could imagen a 60degree bend i could then drill some 35mm holes for grip and some way of mounting it to the floor of course :p.

brackets are easy enough just would need size to work to :p

washers thats simple enough to mate just would need sizes etc and prehaps a example so i can see what you mean.
