Been doing some small restoration stuff on the Clio during lock down. Just trying to refresh and repair any signs of corrosion at the moment. Will post up a few more of the finished results.

Looks good! How are you painting the car? Sounds like you have access to proper facilities? I’m currently balls deep in similar repairs to my car but limited to home repair. Luckily anything I’m painting is covered up with skirts etc. I need to get under the backend on mine next really

I'm actually doing it all myself with spray cans. I was not originally going to spray the rear quarters, but there were a few veryyy tiny bubbles (1mm at most) in the paint at the bottom of the rear quarters so thought it best to address while I was there. I was surprised at how good a finish you can get with the cans. Obviously you need to wet sand and polish the clear coat afterwards to get it completely flat and rid of orange peel.

My main aim for the car is to restore to as good a standard as I can myself while addressing all the usual areas of corrosion and keep the shell fresh as possible.

Do you guys on here know much about the corrosion on/around the front brackets holding the front bumper on? I've heard a little about it on here but not seen and photos of the corrosion. Just want to address all potential areas now before any corrosion progresses.

Thanks for sending through! So it's
the bracket holding the front bumper on. Looks like surface rust on yours and you caught it well before it became an issue.

How easy to remove the front bumper?

Dead easy, I must have had mine off 4 or 5 times in the last few months.

First off two 10mm bolts at the front through the bumper under tray (the bit connected to the bumper not the main under tray) into the subframe.
2x 10mm bolts under archliner into bumper bracket.
3x T20? Torx on either end (6x total), one on the arch lip into archliner, two under the front corner into the archliner.
2x trim clips on the top of grille into slam panel.
Other than that disconnect the bonnet switch, foglight plug and a firm pull on each side where they clip into the wings.

Okay great info thanks buddy. Will refer to this little guide when I go to take a look 👍🏻

I find that a lot of the reason the bumper corners don't dont pull up tight to the wing is if the under tray is pulled too far forward on the bolts, loosening and pushing it back closes the gap up.

Got the drivers side rear quarter and sill painted/clear coated today. Here's some pics to give an idea of what can be done with spray cans in a normal garage. Obviously very orange peely but I'll wet sand and polish which should mean it ends up half decent. Main thing is that the sills and arches are protected properly.

Also noticed while doing this work that the area where the panel skins meet at the bottom corner of where the rear lights sit had surface corrosion on mine which I removed. Any others on here seen the same thing?

Bit of a disaster with the paint job I carried out on the Clio. Turns out that since it was water based paint and the climate at the moment is cold and damp, the paint turned a milky colour under the clear coat and ruined my many hrs of hard work!! 🤦‍♂️ So lesson learned for future will be to get paintwork done by a pro! Car is booked in for a respray of both doors, both quarter panels, bottom of front bumper, bonnet and the side skirts. Pretty much a full respray really. Not needed but just want to get it done right and for it to last.

Have any of you guys tried lanoguard for protecting the underside of your cars? I'm keen on giving it a try for both my cars since it's clear, organic and is extremely easy to apply by the look of things. About £65 for a large (5ltr?) tub which should do a couple of cars.
I've been looking for this kind of thing for years!!

Been a while, but car is almost complete at the body shop having both driver and passenger side rear quarters, sills, side skirts, bump strips + front portion of the bonnet sprayed to remove the usual corrosion patch and the lower portion of the front bumper which was scratched sprayed and clear coated.

Will pick the car up next week and take better photos.

Thanks guys I've had the car since 2010 when I bought it with 32,000 miles for £3,200. It's now just about to turn 80,000 miles. Great fun and very practical so would like to keep using and enjoying it for years to come!
