    Progress is slow at the moment but after what feels like forever i have a small update.. Cup spoiler!

    I decided to go for the ebay cup spoiler copy mainly because i prefer the smooth end plates. Originally i was going to spray the whole spoiler white but after placing my scoop on the roof i decided i want a black scoop and spoiler with white end plates.. oh yeah i also have a scoop and a genuine renault sport sabelt with a horn bracket/buttons etc. (Thanks to josh for the bracket/buttons).

    Love the look of this wheel. Will fit it when i get a chance.

    Painted spoiler. (Sorry for the poor image quality).

    Spoiler fitted. It improves the look of the car so much, very pleased with it and it fits perfectly without any issues; not bad for a rep!

    Scoop propped on top, i have this mainly because in the summer on track it gets too hot, but i do also quite like the 'cup racer' look. I won't be fitting the scoop until i have a cage so it can sit in my piles of parts i can't fit yet.

    Thats all for now, plans going ahead are more track time and save for a cage.

    Looking really good....the spoiler looks ace in that colour scheme on your car and matches in a treat! The steering wheel is going to look awesome too. Cup Racer here we come !! You going for a few decals too ?

    **Poor little Clio looks like its begging for a clean :smile:

    Thanks dude. Im not sure about decals, my plan is to race it in a small series one day but the car won't be ready for another year or two, maybe then I'll sticker it up but for now I'm going to keep it clean.

    Haha it needs a clean desperately, I'll get around to it soon!

    I think this is the version I bought which should already be primered, I just gave it a wet sand because the finish on the primer was a bit crappy, other than that no issues mate. I know josh ordered the version without primer and had issues with the primer reacting.

    Man the black wheels and privacy glass have to be removed. Hate it haha, white wheels or my yellow ones make it much nicer to look at.

    Can't wait for some more mods and more track time

    A good an excuse for poly windows. Yellow wheels FTW!

    Yeah can't wait to get back out on track, hopefully we can do Donnington/Oulton/Cadwell soon!

    Very pleased with it, the look and feel is lovely but scared of ruining the suede now . To be honest I don't like the look of aerocatches on mk3s, got pins for the boot as well just haven't got around to fitting yet.

    Thanks, no really easy to fit, hardest part is removing the airbag.
