    So picked this up yesterday!

    Needs some attention on a few areas, which I plan to tackle today and over the coming weeks.

    Remove tints
    Sort exhaust alignment
    Remove dent in drivers 3/4 panel
    Remove pressed plates for some fancy plates.
    The list goes on!

    Keeping the wheels? They suit it!

    Yeah the Turini's will be even better to be fair, that'll be the wheel choice for mine too eventually

    Love this car. Very little on it that needs attention, an afternoon will have it in near perfect condition. It drives fantastically, alignment is spot on, brakes are strong, engine timing is spot on, pulls exactly as a 182 should and delivers high mpg when doing 70mph - averaged 45 over 3 hours. No smoke at all when pushing hard.
    Had a lot of fun looking at a few cars and this one was by far the best.

    Thankyou Gus, for ferrying me about and inspecting cars for me! It's a learning curve for me!

    Today I spent a few hours swapping bits from the 1.72 to the 182; as follows:

    Remove v6 airbox and fit KTEC
    Swap Aliminium footrest
    Swap RenaultSport mats
    Swap Silvervisions
    Swap rear plate housing and bulb
    Swap batteries
    Turinis on 182
    Swap stereos
    Swap wipers

    I'm unable to drive it as my insurance company are shut on Sunday's, so will sort that tomorrow!

    I gave it a quick going over with snowfoam.

    Got extremely sunburnt in the process but oh well!

    So first thing I wanted to do for my own peice of mind was a full service so with @optical 's help, we set about doing the following:

    13-05-2016 100614.jpg


    Engine Oil Change
    Gearbox Oil Change
    VVT Seal replaced, as we suspected this is what was leaking oil onto the rocker cover.

    Also decided to fit some Trendlines:

    14-05-2016 181151.jpg 14-05-2016 181154.jpg

    Fitted a Powerflex Purple Dogbone mount:

    14-05-2016 181157.jpg

    As you can see, I went to town cleaning up the rocker cover and touch wood it's stayed spotless since.

    Fitted a KTEC Induction kit a while ago:

    08-05-2016 142851.jpg

    I plan to paint the calipers Yellow. Not to everyones taste, but my KTEC is yellow, and I plan on a Yellow Snappy wheel at some point so it made sense.

    While doing the service we noticed that the Rear left shock was leaking badly, luckily @Steven103 saved the day with a spare set of rear shocks!

    Car looks great mate!

    Lastly, I went and took a few pictures of a dirty car having just done an hour on the motorway but I am so happy with how it looks I couldn't resist!

    Still a fair bit to do;

    PDR man booked to take the car away for dent removal and a few scratch repairs
    Remove tints when I can be bothered
    Fancy plates are on order and should be here any day. They'll go straight on.

    Not sure as the markings have worn off. They're red so assume Eibach Sportlines?

    May refresh springs at some point.

    How're you finding the seats? Are they slippy at all?

    From how they're all bunched up, pretty sure they're not sportlines. I could be wrong, and it's a very quick/cheap thing to change/improve. (:

    I'd have kept mine if it had trendlines in I reckon.

    Reading CS at work makes me want to sell my ST and get a 182 and make it mint.

    Them seats look amazing! What are they out of, the Trophies came with them right?
    This car is pretty much exactly how I'd have mine.

    They are Recaro Trendlines, the same as those that come in a Trophy, however the ones in the Trophy are half alacantra, half leather.

    These are out of a Megane with the Lux pack, full leather.

    Still a lot to do on this car, watch this space!

    Coilovers springs? Are they coilovers but without the shocks? Surely at that point they're just springs? FLOL.

    Love it Mark, it's a world of difference from the 1.72. It goes when you ask it!

    They are 100% Vmaxx rear springs, just without the adjusters and standard shocks instead.

    Glad your happy with it mate. Can see this project getting expensive for you!

    This is my project thread. It was never started to be one as I get too much done too quickly and forget to update it but I thought I'd try!

    So today I spent what seemed like an eternity removing the badman tints.

    The film came off easily, leaving a layer of glue behind. So with a rag, a bottle of glue remover and a Nandos card i set about scraping it all off. Took just over half hour per window. Looks a million times better!
