    172 Cup

    My Clio 172 Cup

    Bought for 1000 of my hard earned pounds

    Well it turns out the M.O.T. is dodgier than Phil Mitchell and its had little care from its previous owners, other than Stickers n a 'Zorst.

    List so far

    Brakes all round, Rear wheel bearing - 120 from Euro
    Steering Rack End - Grease monkey to source
    Rear Tyre - 20 part worn
    Cambelt,Aux Belt + Possible Dephaser Pulley
    Full Service
    Bonnet release handle/cable - 23 from Ebay
    Standard exhaust - 60 for a cheapy reproduction
    Standard rear lights - 24 from RenaultSpares
    Standard airbox
    Battery
    Alloy Refurb

    As I'm not exactly flush I'm spreading the work over this month and the start of next. Its booked in on Thursday for the Brakes, Bearing,Tyre, and Exhaust. As you can see I've been buying parts already, The rear lights should turn up tomorrow and be fitted asap as the lexarse ones are s**te. I've re soldered one already due to the joints being crap, now the other ones fecked. Luckily its been parked up and only moved for a check up and a de-sticker since I acquired it. Anyway, Here's pictures.

    I believe a previous owner enlisted this chap for the job

    Give it a month or two and it should be how I want it. Just a few plugs "unplugged" under the bonnet to sort.

    That's a bargain!

    Won't take much to get it looking like a decent Cup again.

    172 Cup

    Re: My Clio 172 Cup

    Update:

    Brakes, Bearing, Bonnet Catch, and rear lights arrived




    Its in the garage waiting on a steering rack end to go on since I forgot to put it on yesterdays list with the brakes etc, Lights will go on tonight, and bonnet catch when I can be arsed fiddling about, We managed to free up the old catch with some WD40 which meant it at least locked on correctly.

    Talking to the Grease Monkey last night and apparently who ever last had the wheels off managed to put in varying length bolts and bugger the thread on the hub up. Lovely..

    Re: My Clio 172 Cup

    Blew the rad hoses last month, 270ish gone.
    Hub got replaced too

    Onto this weeks latest though. I got the wheels sorted out. 4 with buckles, 1 had a small crack. All been professionally straightened and welded, topped off with a powder coat of silver. Drives so much better!

    Re: My Clio 172 Cup

    If you're up to 2270 now, wouldn't have been easier to buy one with FSH etc? It'll still be a nightmare to shift on in future with history..
