1 owner from new, low mileage.

Looks good, but another Renault? I thought you had lost your rag with these things.  :lol:

I was thinking of sticking the turbo conversion in it for a sleeper ;)
But it is fookin pretty mint, been garaged all it's life, got a little scab on the lower rear arches but apart from that exterior is pretty good.
Think clutch or box is a bit rough though as speedo is wavy & clutch is a bit sticky..
I reckon a set of standard bore forgies would drop right in & be as tight as new  :mrgreen:
Really nice to drive actually, think it will be going to pod day as it is apart from my OZ's.

Is there room to change the belt, or are you going to lose some knuckles?

We worked out that we'd need to jack the engine up & drop it down accordingly depending if we are working on the top or the bottom of the engines  :mrgreen:

Undo front engine m9unt 17mm bolt and jack up driver side of engine gives you an xtra 2-3" of clearance, car is all timed up. Just need to fit turbo.

Saw Steve's car has to say looks very very clean, even has that new leather smelll in it, fecking good buy Steve, looks awesome on your Super Leggera's also :mrgreen:
