Some stuff can still be had new like brake components and things, eBay usually best tbh, then the are bordanova and young timers (Google them) for replica and hard to find stuff and Mat Brown (Clio specialist on Facebook) for everything else.

Bought this off Dunc up my way didn't you? I've poked about the car, nice complete phase 1 but yeah the rust is in it and non starter iirc

Hi mate yeah this was Duncs phase 1 needs a fare bit of work even just to get the motor to run in desperate need of a complete tank both of them as this is what the sender looks like . And thanks for the tips 👌

Fooking hell that's been sat a while!

Fuel system stuff definitely Mat at the clio specialists as the phase 1 setup is specific to the car.

Have you dropped the tank yet to access the pump etc?

No only had time to see whAt was in the main tank and was bad orange gloop really smelly old petrol will drop both of them to see if I can salvage them but dought it the look really bad for a plastic tank they look werse than a metal tank 🤨 I’ll have a try 👍🏻

Hopefully you can salvage the tank, it's phase 1 specific that setup too with separate sender unit and pump
