Yeah thats the exhaust id been looking at. Whats the sound like? You should get a video up
It sounds good not too loud and has a nice burble on tick over, I've got the cat on at the mo so it's silencing it a bit too, I'll fit my decay again post mot.
really love infernos.
this is amazing. carbon badge on the back would finish it off for me
Have thought about it or even just painting it but never get round to it.
wanna get an exhaust for mine...standard looks crap now
Standard just seems too small for the cut outs on 182 hence I went for something that would fill the cut outs better and it sounds like the Clio has purpose now.
Over the last month I've done a few small things to the inferno.
The first was having the car corner weighted and steering geometry set up by Bridgwater College, i cant recommend them enough, they did an excellent job on the clio and its really made a difference, all for only £50 and the money goes towards funding their Radical race car.
This however highlighted the need for some negative camber so some camber bolts will be aquired soon and then I'll take the car back to them to fully set up.
Next up was a Renaultsport gear knob purchased from eBay, after hearing a couple stories of these not fitting after I'd already purchased it, i was a little worried, but when it arrived all that was required was to drill out the collar it comes with and screws onto by a couple mm which took but a few minutes, and was thusly fitted swiftly and looks and feels pretty good.
After a very spirited drive back behind chipmk1 from a meet in Wells my front diamond was left looking like this...........
And after several attempts at painting it, with primer, matt black paint and lacquer that my brother had lying around, i finally got it to a point i was happy with, and considering I've never sprayed anything i thought it came out pretty good in the end. Photos are from different attempts and some taken with iPhone so not brilliant quality but you get the general idea.
First stage was to strip all the old paint and sand before primer.
Next up were several coats of primer and flatting before painting.
Then came the painting, this is the stage i kept having problems with as i kept getting runs in the paint due to my poor technique but after several attempts finally got the hang of it.
After a couple coats of paint i gave it a few coats of lacquer, after which i wet sanded with some 2000 grit wet n dry and then polished up as best i could, forgot to take pics of how it was before i sanded and polished but heres one of the sanding and polishing phase mid polish and the finished diamond.
And back onto the car, as said I'm chuffed with how it's turned out after basically teaching myself to paint by learning from my mistakes, and think the quality of the paintjob on it is actually better than it was before i started. spots in the pics are because it was raining when i put it on and took the pics. and the cars in need of a wash!
Cheers for looking,
Its looking great that mate
Cheers, next on the list is some plain plates, which I keep forgetting about sorting out.
Sounds good mate, it certainly looks well looked after Im thinking of going back to the standard 16" 182 alloys too, not sure wether to go black or anthracite though
I thought about black but decided I didn't really want them that dark so went for a slightly darker than standard anthracite.
Looks spot on that. Another inferno :P
Cheers, bonxy are you still selling those interior strips you had in inferno?
