    Are you going for a conversion Nick?

    Loving the roof Decal.

    What sort of money was the frame?

    Seems like there's a few of us on here in the Midlands.

    I think about £204 from Willenhall Renault

    It’s already converted, start from the beginning

    I'd read up to when you got the silverstone and I guess I'd missed the bit in the middle.

    I do love Nimbus when it's clean.

    Are you running a t15 at the moment?

    My cup's Looking sorry for itself mid conversion.

    lol

    Nimbus has always been 1 of my faves, it comes up well, very understated

    Yeah, a 15t, will be off by the end of the week

    You'll love it when it's finished

    Where abouts are you

    I'm in kidderminster, so not too far from you.

    Did you keep the aircon?

    Won't the akra be a bit of restriction? It's only to the rear boxes that Will cause an issue.

    Unfortunately my garden has taken priority and is now doing me in. Taken all my money too! Luckily I have pretty much everything to get it done now.

    Ran into Nick at MRS on Friday.
    His car is astonishingly good. Best Clio I have seen first hand.

    The attention to detail was awesome. And that exhaust!!

    It is not good seeing cars like this. Far too many expensive ideas now in my head.

    Just down the rd then

    Aircons still in place

    So far the Akra has been fine. The difference is only 5bhp / 5ftlb from when it was in the megane, the difference being a 3" exhaust so really it's not that bad I don't think

    Hope you get it done while we still have some summer

    Don’t suppose your mate can make my megane gear knob look like yours?

    Lovely tidy example, wish mine was as clean! Haha

    You'd have to post it to me then I'd send it back when done

    I have a spare but it's my old Clio knob with the wrong layout

    I'll ask him tonight
