Its been a long term project...(on-going) having a stage 3 head fitted at the moment...so missing the old girl a bit... havent posted on here before...But I've just browsed a lot. Still have plenty to do to get it how I want, it was 99% standard when I got it 3 years ago and in need of a full refurb (but rust free which is pretty rare...no welding on this car..all original panels).

UserPostedImage UserPostedImage UserPostedImage UserPostedImage Hope u like to see it... I could have posted another 400 pics.. but I'm getting a bit tired now... lol.. :)

Thanks for your kind feedback guys! I have tried to keep it as tastefully done as poss. I do the 'bolt on' bits myself and have spent months upon months getting it into this condition under the bonnet.. and under the car as well as inside it! but leave the really skilled work to my mechanic for tuning/setting up...and engine rebuild, he started his own business after leaving BB Tuning some years ago.. he's a top guy... I always prefer professional engine work for peace of mind and pay someone that knows there onions than have my engine fail after 5 minutes.lol. I have also had Chips Away work on the car a few times... removing every chip and dent on every panel.. its impossible to tell its not all completely original paint... (I have kept as much or the original paint as I can as you cant beat the depth of it and looks spotless) I took it to Renault to buy some parts...when I came out there were a dozen Renault staff were standing around it...lol pretty cool that they liked it...I wasnt sure how they would react to having a car stripped of its internals. I have most of the bits I need to finish the car to how I want it... but only a few more bits I havent got hold of yet. I was thinking of a Saftey Devices rear cage in black, and some black 4 point harnesses to finish the interior.. (I will prob wait a while to do that) I have the front carbon door cards waiting to go in... UserPostedImage Mocal oil cooler fitted... UserPostedImage I have some nice trick bits I want to get on soon... I'll pop some pics up when I get them on. Cheers :)

Your spot on.. my hydrolic jack broke... and that thing nearly fell over as my drive has a slight slope! I wont use it again..lol. (I just bought a bottle jack but it wont fit under the car) I took the axel stands away for the pic...but would always use them once its jacked up.
