Iceberg Silver 172 - First Sport Project

Firstly I will indroduce myself, I'm Cal (@CliosportCal on Instagram)

I have been involved with the modified car scene for just over two years, my first car was a Clio 1.2 which I highly modified visually, slammed very low and made into a 172 rep.

I then stripped the 1.2 back to standard, sold most the parts and part exchanged it for a mk2 VW Caddy which I only owned for a few months, was nothing but nightmares breaking down every week!

So here I am... Back to the Clio life with @Mostro 's old Iceberg Silver 172.

When I purchased this car it already had a few tasteful modifications "Enhancements" including:
- Snappy Re-Trimmed steering wheel,
- KTEC Stealth Catback exhaust,
- KTEC Carbon Splitter
- Eibach Proline springs
- Polybushed Dogbone mount,
- 6x9's in the parcel shelf just to include the audio slightly.

So to start off there were a few bits that needed a little bit of TLC...
Firstly I got new numberplates & debadged the rear,
Secondly I got Jamie @ Prestige Custom Exhausts Leeds to fit new clamps & re-adjust the backbox as it was hanging down a bit low for my liking.

AND THE MODS BEGIN!

RS Renault Sport mk3 Badge
After this my mk3 sport badge arrived so I fitted the badge to cover up the holes under the clio badge,

Carbon 6D Wrapped Dash Trims & Aftermarket Headunit
I then purchased a Bluetooth Headunit & also bought back the carbon wrapped dash trims I had in my 1.2 and fitted them,

Painted Engine Cover & Window switch surrounds
As we all know the 172 window switch surrounds get very grim and scratched over time! I conquered this by buying a set of already painted Window switch surrounds & a matching engine cover.

Black Clock surrounds
Next I purchased & fitted a black clock surround

Wind Deflectors
For the practicality one of my favourite mods on my 1.2 was my wind deflectors so had to be one of the first mods.

Carbon Internal wing mirror trims.
Anyone fancy telling me the actual part name of these?

Detailing

As I'm the Leeds based Reseller of all OnItsArse Detailing Products detailing is at my heart and will be a big part of this build!

I started by giving the car a full wash & decontamination, Iron deposit removal, Tar Removal & Clay bar. It then rained so I have yet to get round to polishing or waxing the car unfortunately but hoping to get the shine to the levels of my 1.2 before show season 2019!

A few more modifications:

Ram-Air Fatty style hardpipe Induction
No photos yet.

Non-sport Dash
I also picked up a 1.2 top dash from a scrapyard in mint condition without the worn sticky centre plastic and fitted this.

Car looks nice Callum, good to see you didn't stay on the dark side very long😂.
Thanks :), still got a soft spot for classic vags but for now back to the Renault Life that i'm more used to.

I'm tempted to do the debadge thing on my Flamer but can't decide
DO IT! Looks so much smarter IMO

lovely motor mate

Any major plans?
For now I need new brakes all round, Few bits of cosmetic damage touching up & then some summer wheels maybe 2118's or something & AD08R tyres (Practicality & they look mega!)

So today I have given the carpet a good clean & fitted Renault Sport floor mats

& also gave my headlights another polish as they are pretty bad, think I need to give them a proper referb including sanding them down etc

So today I fitted a 12" sub, in the process I went to remove my front n/s wheel to make it easier to access the bung hole behind my arch liner but had a problem the front bolt cover caps wont budge when using the tool, the metal thing looks pushed in further than the rears, has anyone got any tips?

I managed to bend the arch liner out of the way and fit the sub wiring without removing the wheel eventually!

So, most of you wont know but I am one of the official resellers for OnItsArse Car Care, I have recently started stocking our newest products the Pink Foam. This is a pink PH Neautral Glitter Snowfoam that has been released in the build up to Cancer Awareness Month to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Yesterday I gave the car a wash using a this dilution of this product followed by our "Green Jelly" Shampoo.

After finishing the washing it unfortunately got too dark for any decent photos.

Today I gave the car a once over using OnItsArse Purple Glaze, a sweet scented Quick Detailer which just helped to add a slight shine and eliminate any dust that had fallen onto the car overnight.

Whilst cleaning the car I noticed one of the fog lights was either not fitted correctly or had snapped. After further inspection the bracket had snapped (Luckily I had a spare set in my garage!) so a replacement got fitted :)

The last task for today was to fit a battery cover I picked up for a bargain price of £15!

So my map sensor decided to perish and snap in half, whilst my car was off the road for a day waiting on the part to arrive I thought it'd be a good idea to referb my headlights as they were in a bad state as you'll of seen before!

Since the photos I've given the headlights another machine polish and a nice layer of Fusso wax sealant but haven't got any other photos.

Makes the car look 10x better. Doesn't look bad for a silver car

I also purchased Carbon Skinned 2.0 16v Bullets to replace my terribly aged OEM bullets, they have a bit of lacquer peel but still better than the rusty ones that were on before & I will get this sorted over time!
