    following on I set to work on ordering parts and getting some stuff done , I set off with new headlight bulbs , new sidelight bulbs , mist washer jets (must have) new wipers , de badged and black Renault badge covers. Oh I also stumbled upon a nearly new ktr induction kit for £100!

    Don't do it. It's cool to have them silver not black. Everyone has black these days. Standard is the new modded.

    It's been a busy day on the RS today

    Started off with the fairly simple task of changing the upper torque mount bush to a powerflex one which has eliminated my knock I was getting . That went pretty smoothly then I tackled the exhaust ....



    After lots of swearing and messing and tinkering plus a little more swearing I got it all to fit to find out the v band was blowing where it meets the manifold

    Bit more tinkering swearing and some 'gungum' later it is fitted and appears to have no leaks

    Also polished up the tips on my mates miltek

    As always was a little busy and forgot to take loads if pictures . 4b44b6a0e4c325a72882093bcee229ed.jpg 5760eec990a5b99367b403370db769a1.jpg f0a6fc392437d6ddb5f24e6bcaa16a1f.jpg 3de462b9210c428b7e30900797d9bee3.jpg

    Welcome mate! Car looks nice, don't listen to @LOCKE black badges are the way forward..

    Grand job picking up a KTR induction kit for that money, hard to find! What exhaust did you go for?
