    Bit of an update from yesterday

    Sun was shinning so it was time to fit my RS side skirts

    Thanks to @Glenn_Adam_Doble for the fitting tips :thumb:

    It's a good job I've got a dremel as the fit was shocking, sorted in the end without drilling into the existing skirt. I'll get my DSLR out soon a promise :sunglasses:

    I'll start gentle

    So

    Stevie, over on Renaultsport club knocked me up a few decals

    K6UB6hy.jpg

    black centre caps, lacquered to hold the sticker in place, still not fitted yet

    dmnMoin.jpg

    As most over time, my front rad support sub frame had developed an orange colour, its now been coated with smoothrite ready for fitting

    ERSxIGr.jpg

    At last, a sun strip

    limo film, fitted to the inside, size serves a purpose & not to everyone's taste, 197F1 team roof decal in matt black. More to protect the gloss black factory paint, I'm chuffed how its turned out. So far I've found Gtechniq C2 seems to be keeping the vinyl protected

    The -

    Massive thanks to @suj for the sale of his Bilstein's :sunglasses:

    they've been in my boot for 2 months :fearscream:

    8MCuCBn.jpg

    As some of you might of seen, I stuck a wanted thread up for some OZ Ultraleggera's, long shot but you never know

    Not wanting to wait for a set direct from OZ through Renaultsport club, last week I gave in & ordered new from Demon Tweeks. I didn't even take them out the box. Ordered Tuesday delivered Wednesday

    Then, on Thursday a set popped up on FB with a set of cup 2's included, they've done 7-8 laps of Rockingham, that's all. In need of a refurb as the owner had an off - reason for the sale

    On Friday, I returned the set to Demon Tweeks for a refund & dropped the other set to wheel mania in Dudley for a refurb, in satin black - massive result :sunglasses:

    Finally, yesterday, I dropped it up to Mark at MRS, coilovers, brake flush, rad sub support

    &, to start with, 20t hybrid
