James' Phase 1 Clio 172

Well here it is. Just driven upto Wigan to collect this from @Danith and it's a little cracker!

Few little bits here and there to do, but I'd be bored if there wasn't something on it to fix/replace

Usual melted steering wheel, and a silly loud powerflow exhaust are the first things to be sorted. Overall though, a really good condition phase 1!

  Merc CLS, TT, 182
Cant take the credit, Rob did all the hard tidy up work. I just drove it to Wigan, lolz. Is a little belter
HaHa

I had my plans to carry on making it mint, but i needed my garage back!
Enjoy it james
 
Very nice looking car this, saw it for sale and was like :D but then remembered I already have a 182 and no spare garage space lol!

Nice to see it's staying on the forum, will be interested to see what's done. Black wheels and lows really suit it!

Love a ph1.

Oh James, you are a doll.

So..... spec current and future plans please.
It's currently on some sort of springs, possibly apex, and a powerflow exhaust.

Ideally I want to replace the rear bumper for an uncut one, and a stealth exhaust, eibach springs, and wheels back to silver.
Tidy up a few things like retrimmed steering wheel and maybe a MINT driver's seat. That'll be about it. Keep the miles off it as it's only on 56k

Dropping the steering wheel off with snappy on Saturday for a retrim.
Got a new coolant bottle from @JP83 to go in, and I've just had front cup shocks off him. Will get two rears ordered, and look for some sportlines. Also got some little bits like silvervision bulbs to go in.

Getting a price off a local powder coaters tomorrow to get the wheels back to silver. Should be pretty cheap as I only paid 120 quid for my 19" M3 wheels

Thanks mate.

I contacted him twice via and it seems to fall down. He was waiting on some but never heard back.

I love his work and would rather go to him over royal wheels. If he has, then I'll drop him another message.

He's coming to CSF aswell mate so you can grab him there aswell to give him a friendly reminder
 
The wheels silver again should look great! That's very cheap too, I paid £192 (inc VAT) for my Turini's to be done! Guessing it'll be around the 100 mark for yours based on the M3 wheels?

Is that city powder coaters in Birmingham? Really good quality for the price if so.
