Sleepy's Pearl Black Clio - Project Benga



Hey! Okay so, I'm 16 my Clio has officially been handed over to me (waited 2, very, very long years) And yes, I did name the Clio after the Dubstep artist, Benga.
Anyway, throughout the 2 year wait, I've purchased and sold a few things for this car... I'm a bit of an Idiot to be honest! It's all learning though ;)

Bought then sold/selling:

a CUP rear bumper.. Sold it weeks later.
Wolfrace Eurosprint alloys.. going to sell them! (We all know why.. chavy!)
an exhaust (3").. Big mistake, it was huge(GAPING), too big for the Clio and would of ruined it. So selling that.
FK Lowering springs (60mm)... sold them, going to get Apex springs, much better!


Stuff I've kept and installed:

K&N Induction 57i (Little beaut!)
New Rear Lights, they're black. (I need some help off you guys, I do and don't like them. might go back to original)
New Headlights (Last ones were in the sun too much and became all misty and had cracks.)
Sony Xplod 1300w sub, along with amp, Vibe 6x9s and Sony Xplod headunit. (First and last sound system i'm having, always wanted one)
Black side repeaters with chrome bulbs.


Things to come:

Rear windows tint (Do I?)
Dropping 40mm/60mm with apex, or may wait for coilys(Prob gunna do that)
White Badges (Currently being done)
RS Grill (On it's way!)
Colour Code (spoiler, front and rear bumper) (arranged)
In a few months (either 172 alloys, F1's or Team Dynamics 1.2s , or keep originals... :S)
Then Carbon Fibre wrap something!! (would like your suggestions for that one ;) )
Get a front splitter on the go... Fabia right?

So yeah, that's abit of history and abit of .. 'Planning'? For you guys!

Any ideas and suggestions, fire away! :)

cheers!!

Drivers side matey, it's snapped off! I would get a pic, but that means taking the bumper off which in my car is a pain for some reason haha (Rusty bolts and tread is messed :( )
and cheers buddy, lovin' it!! I'm sooo looking forward to 15" 172's going on.
 
Re: Project Benga 16v 1.2 MK2

not too sure about the side lights or boot install/6x9's
fair enough mate, i think i might get white/xenon ones. and the 6x9s is a one off and one time only! getting **subtle** tints in a few months. so that will kinda hide them abit. :)

Am I missing something or did you say your 16? Fair enough doing some tidying up work for when you can drive, but you do know it's going to add extra to your insurance right?

Re: Project Benga 16v 1.2 MK2

Wow, you've done a lot of work considering you can't even drive it yet. Good that you have an interest though. Most other 16 year olds are probably sitting playing call of duty etc
