Hey Jeff sorry to hear you've had to do so much work to the old beast! Looks like you're having a certain element of fun doing it though... it's a learning process I suppose?

Not sure if I mentioned I'm back in the Renault's now, got my 2nd Clio 182. It's booked in K-Tec next month for Speedline 2118's & Toyo's, coilovers, carbon splitter, and Brembo discs

Thats cool mate, I knew when I bought the car off you it had lots of rust.  Did you know its got crash damage under the passenger wing as well? its a bit crumpled  :o

get a pic up of your clio when its done :)

I didn't, no! I guess you're never going to know the complete history of an older car unfortunately. Anyway just thought I'd pop a few images up as I got my proposed modifications completed on my 182...







Currently saving up for a stage one performance kit from Engine Dynamics!

Windscreen out, cracked the shit out of it getting it out, needed a new one anyway. Pain in the arse to do but it came out...

Here are the next areas of rust I need to sort out:

Just how bad is it? The pictures might be a bit deceiving bu it looks like its just the centre section and the drivers pillar? You might be able to just plate it up?

With mine once I had the flap wheel along it it just all fell apart most the way along, it looks like it had been skimmed with filler several years before!  :roll: It looks a bit nasty up on the roof though, surely that's just surface rust?

The windscreens are a nightmare to remove, I thought I had mine free from the bodywork and I still cracked the bloody thing, apparently they are easier to remove in the summer when the sealant is a bit softer.  :lol:

The windscreen is not too bad that I need the whole panel but could do with sections as making the plates/patches to fit is a pain. Going to see what I can get hold of as scrap.

Got some more done this weekend, drivers side welding is nearly finished, just a small hole in the front arch to patch up, then I can drop the jacks and cut out the windscreen rust.

Jacking point, had to weld a plate into the floor to patch up some holes then weld the jacking point onto it



Rear bumper mount went on nicely.

I'm mainly hanging out on RTOC.org now days so updates may not be so regular on here, but I will keep the thread going with some pictures of the main work etc...

Got a donor screen panel from Mike at gt turbo spares, cut it in two, and used the bottom half as one piece, the top half will have sections cut from it to make patches.

Looking good.  8)

That's roughly the stage I'm at with mine, I've just cleaned the spot welds up and covered the bare metal in red oxide while it was rain/snowing all over the place.

I see the forum has changed to a new skin, lots of great work on other builds too. Here are a few pictures of where my car is at the moment.

I have completely stripped the shell, engine is out, cleaned and painted the front and rear sub frames. cleaned underside and new under seal, stone chipped wheel arches, new suspension parts all round, need to put the back end back in then do some welding inside then it can get painted.

Crikey, you have gone all the way with this shell!

What brand of under seal did you use out of interest?

yeah its getting the full resto now!

I used Hammerite Stone Chip Shield in the wheel arches and along the inside of the inner sills as it drys hard and not tacky and Hammerite under body seal on the underside of the shell, this stays tacky and forms a thicker protective layer. Both out of the large spray cans they do.

yep sticking with the same grey as on the car, but without the blue and purple glitter in the clear coat, the grey is not standard tungsten its got a bit of silver metallic in it as well

Well its been a while since I posted on here, so thought I would do an update as the car is nearing being back on the road. This is where I am up to with it at the moment.
