    Filled up with coolant and my heart sank as I heard it all pissing out on the floor.....turns out this pipe was the culprit. New set of coolant pipes in and we were in business

    Exhaust linked up. Reasonably simple, meg link pipe to a cut down decat into the clio back box. Hardest bit was tightening nuts on the meg decat

    Just need black badges then she'll be done! :wink:

    In all seriousness, fair play for doing it all! I wouldn't know the first place to start...
