    Looks like a good job! Have you thought about cutting holes behind the number plate, and removing the plate when on track (obviously)?

    If you take all the steps that are suggested, there is no way you will have overheating problems. I replaced open grill, back to standard. The holes behind the numberplate, do not affect the structure, just remove plate, when on track.Bonnet vents are not needed, providing the fan is the right way round!!.( Thats another subject.) I have fitted an over ride switch for the fan, but never used, temp. on track remain normal.(ISH!.) With the work you have done, I am sure all will be fine. Take care at the ring, and enjoy. I will be at Spa/Ring, mid July.

    5 more laps done today and wow what an awesome littler car!!! Guy in the E46 csl was properly confused on how this little Clio was catching him and passing, BMW e92 m3 was pushing hard to try stay in front. The Germans love it because of the conversion but it's been mega so far.

    I'm genuinely so damn jealous of this. Gotta get a passenger ride with you at some point in the near future Matt!
