    Default while i've been away..;)

    it's not been all sitting back and relaxing while i've been away....

    it started with a phonecall with my brother-in-law about the state of his Rennoooo clio... it's getting a bit long in the tooth and needed replacement...so, we hatched a plan.....

    A week trawling the 'trade only' salvage websites came up with this Cat D signum... 2004 2.0T and light damage and needing a turbo...... easy work....

    So, after it was delivered down from the wirral i started stripping off the damaged front end..I know i should have taken before photo's but i was a little preoccupied sussing out what i wanted to get it fixed....

    so, here it is part way through..in fact 2 hours after it arrived....









    in fact, the biggest delay has been waiting for parts....But, i have had a few utter bargains from members.. thanks have to go to Glynn for the NS wing, and Rorycarz for the front bumperskin..

    other utter bargains have included a brand new bonnet for £90 delivered, a pair of headlamps for £100 and a radpack for £60....

    The two 'best' results have been the brand new turbo for £300, the rear bumper ( i plastic welded it and so it cost nearly nothing to repair ) and the fact that it came with a full tank of fuel......

    more photo's to follow ...

    lol. that one had a nail in it....

    it's now on my spare set of GSi alloys, so tyres are not a problem ( nor was not having the locking wheelnut key ) ...

    it's now fully repainted and sat outside waiting it's MOT... it's looking great ( thanks to pony_carz and his workmates) and you'll never know it's been hit....
