Okay so bought this car about a month a go and work has started, me and my girlfriend named it Carmel The Clio, here is how it looked when I first bought it:
Then in preparation for FCS2012 I bought some lowering springs, unfortunately (due to money) I had to buy apex springs, however they're like new and I intend to upgrade to coilovers at some point. They are off a 1*2 and are around 50mm lower. Which is just about right for me
Fitting them was easy enough, apart from some stupidly over tightened wheel nuts presume it was someone at a garage with a snap on air gun or something.
In the process of fitting them here:
Two of my mates giving a hand, finishing up
Made a big difference at the front
The finished deal
After a quick once over with a microfibre cloth and autoglym rapid detailer + clean wheels.
To get the paint looking like that, i dipped some money in to a clay bar kit from autoglym, (to go with my autoglym collection) I use the clay bar over the whole car, then used the high resin polish (however its rubbish). I like my detailing, so will be attempting to recreate the perfect finish, with a little machine polish help in a week or two.
The sort of spec i'm aiming for:
Paint and refurb wheels in anthracite, same with badges.
182 interior needs to be mint though to keep up with the rest of the car.
Uprated intercooler, airfilter and then a remap i aim for 130bhp
then colour code the bump strips and maybe the front and back ones too.
and a light tint on the windows, with the sunroof being tinted completely black.
Would like to here you're feed back, and opinions. Thanks for reading, the progress so far
