CS_daves 1 dies to save another project

Welcome to the 1 dies to save another build lets start with the story of the cup. Poor girl recived a bump once in her life and the last owner wasnt really made awere of how bad it was so he took it to a Specialist who carried on and did alot of work on the car. When the car come up for sale the guy turns around and says its a full on death trap so here we are it comes to me as i have a decent boss at work who lets me brake a car at a time at work so Roxy would die with me.



Looking good



Looking not so good i stripped her back after work night after night im not conviced she was "that bad" the roof was straight no crease at all but ah well she will go to scrap next week. Ive pulled all the goodies off sold some and kept loads that i will use to save unloved 172 my mate bought and has just sat there for months now.



There was some damage one the n/s quater arch and marks on o/s which as a smart repair guy he is sorting it for me.



Should be with me soon!

Will be a diffrent animal to the vag clio but looking forward to it

Yeh well i have 4 but 2 are naked lol. This is diffrent to the vag clio thats still with me. The whole point of what ive been doing at late (breaking them) is to build up a spec. I never intended on using the cup for anything other than breaking selling the RS2 extra and other bits to turn some money. Instant love drove it back 100 miles didnt die really enjoyed the drive. This is a seprate thing to the vag one hence the new thread.

Once this one is done it will make life easier as to the vag clio as i will still have a daily at the min my daily is the vag clio it all makes sense in my head.

Worst case if i fall on hard times is sell everything i have stored away for myself. I really dont wanna do that

Looking forward to he updates bud. On that note, does this mean you'll be stopping buying cheap clio's to rip apart? Because if you do I might be actually able to find one!!!

Lol i only buy ones that have things i want mate if i can buy a car strip it and get a free set of alloys im happy admin have asked me to sort out being a trader if i want to carry on breaking im not sure i want that title as im not really doing it as a business more to help me get nice parts i couldnt afford other wise.

Will see what the new year brings as a mate of mine has a cup that he wants to strip down or wants me to once his import lands so may have to take the trader hit and run that way

Yeh theres no rush at all. As long as my heads above water that is as i have the turbo so i can get the kids to school.

The amount of people asked me if im selling the spoiler is unreal lol.

I know, I was only messing. If I had the ability, knowledge, time, space etc I'd do the same! You certainly know your way around a Clio, something I wish I did.

Tbh mate i didnt when i did my cup years ago the gearbox went on it so i thought i cant sell it ill pull it apart lol. I think you learn alot taking thing to bits. Plus since ive ad the turbo i dont really trust garages going for a joy ride so on so i always try to do things myself. Thats where this place is GOLD the guides are great you just cant find that on facebook. Wish someone did a guide for the cambelt tho as i would just buy the tools and do it myself

Echo your thoughts on having a go yourself. I'm a self taught bicycle mechanic and I've just moved onto cars. I've always preferred to have a go and learn than pay someone who doesn't care about my car/bike from the next. I agree wholeheartedly that this forum is one of the best for information and help. Well worth the sub fee all day long

good luck with the build:D

Did you sell the engine @cs_dave or are you putting the whole lot into the PB?
The plan was to keep the engine n box to drop in but it hasnt worked that way as funds have been needed to go against the money the car owes me.

Things ive kept from the cup are

Rs2 extra
Polo rad
Solid mounts
Evol mount
Whitline
Snappy wheel
Top grille
Trophy spoiler with short lifterd
Polybushed arb bushes and rack bushes
Abs delete
Pms top mounts and brace
Pms decat exhaust

Of the top of my head so ive kept alot of the value of the car.

Bloody hell, well worth the £1.8k or whatever it was he was asking for it.
Yeh it was worth the 1.9k all day long will create a very well speced car once its done. Just waiting for the nod from my mate saying i can collect the 172 then things will start to happen. The carbon bonnet will be dropped straight on :)

What was the deal with the Cup damage then?

And this black one is to make room for making the grey one an animal?
Tbh im not body man but imo it wasnt "that" bad but as i say i dunno really.

As far as the grey one ill prob dump on ebay 99p start lol. Dunno where to go with it tbh water meth would be nice but dunno if ill keep it or sell at what it sells for

sounds like your just a serial killer of Clios lol
Seems like it of late ones ive wanted parts from have kept popping up so ill buy them hoping the black one works out for me. I wouldnt break the turbo tho good car thats been.

May have a dabble at flocking been looking into set up costs saves rolling around under a car in the mud lol.

Im very pleased with the black clio for £500 shes a steal imo just needs some love
