My Titanium silver 182

Top is what i have on now but still have the Turinis.Have also had a set of silver TD's lower photo.They do drive a bit better on 15's but nothing to major,many change for tyre reasons costs in 15's.

Middle pic is my favourite setup, looks so fresh. Again, absolutely no bias on my part!

Update on the clio… had both sides of the car resprayed along with the bonnet. Added small mud guards to avoid gravel rash. Gave it a wash and wax and cleaned the front seats for the first time.

I removed the rear quarter panel interior cards to have a look at the inside of the arches for corrosion and this is what I came across. The drivers side has no corrosion but passenger side has some which I will attempt to remove with a dremel this week. I’ve already given it a wire brush but definitely need the dremel to get into the cracks and hard to reach areas…

Can someone recommend which attachments would be best for this job to use along with my dremel (pictured below) please?

Cheers.

A few more photos of the underside and interior for the record… need to tidy up a few bits and pieces but it’s a daily and not a garage queen!

Looking really tidy mate!

Good work on the rear door cards, mine were pretty clean but i found the attachment highlighted below to be pretty good at getting to the hard to reach areas. You can get miniature dremel versions aswell

That’s great thanks. I went into the RS website and found a kit which should do the job nicely:


or in B&Q they have this but I’m not sure it’ll get into the cracks:



cheers!!

Great updates.

So many Clio owners appear to be on the path of protecting the inner arches, myself included.

Do you mind me asking how much you paid for the paint work?

900 for bonnet, both sides of car, side skirts. Included inside petrol cap, sills, removing rear bumper and removing and painting side bump strips.

I wouldn’t have gotten all that done because it just wasn’t needed, however I decided to try and paint it myself to start with and I couldn’t blend well so I decided to do the full rear quarters on both sides. That didn’t go to plan since the clear coat turned a milky colour and there was a vane like pattern all over the rear quarters. That’s where I gave up and handed it over to a professional!!

Purchased an old set of OZ Ultraleggeras off eBay size 16”. They are in good nick apart from some welded on brake dust/deposits. Anyone got any ideas on how to remove this stuff?

I was thinking tardis wheel cleaner or dry ice blasting. What do you guys think?!

Wheels cleaned to as best as I could get with the products I had. Need something stronger to get the baked on brake dust off. They need a polish to get a bit of shine back too.
This is them fitted. I really like the design, lightness and the fact they allow a lot more cooling for the brakes. Excuse the lack of air in the tyres when some of these photos were taken! The tyres also need some tyre dressing too…

It looks really well on those wheels! Guessing 16’s as I think the 15 version looks rubbish. This just looks right!
Yeah these are 16’s. Eibach red lowering springs on standard cup shocks. Would look better lower but it’s my daily plus I’m getting older so don’t want to look like a boy racer 😝

Started tidying up inside the rear quarters today with a steel wire brush on a dremel. Then smeared some bilt hamber deox gel over the area to get rid of the remaining corrosion. First 2 pics without gel, second 2 where gel is starting to react with the rust.

Have others used bilt hamber electrox on the bare metal followed by the bilt hamber S50 anti corrosion cavity spray wax?

Drivers side inner rear quarter surface rust completely removed and bilt hamber electrox zinc primer sprayed.

Will be finishing off the passenger side tomorrow which had more corrosion but I’ve managed to take care of it all thank goodness! Will share photos of that too.

Once the Electrox zinc primer dries, I’ll spray some bilt hamber S50 cavity wax inside both rear quarters and hopefully that’ll keep the Clio going strong for another few years!

Passenger side after surface corrosion removed using a little brush on a dremel + a fair amount of bilt hamber deox gel. Good result I think considering how it started off (see above for before photos). Will wait until this is completely dry and then spray some bilt hamber zinc primer (electrox) and bilt hamber S50 cavity wax over the top to ensure a corrosion free environment going forward.
