    Just back from RS tuning.

    Aux belt : check
    Timing belt : check
    Tensioners : check
    Water pump : check
    Dephaser : check
    New Coolent : check
    Full service : check

    Pleased that it's all done now
    My mind is a bit more at rest.

    On the trip front I set the cruise control at 70 and let it drive.
    It manged 34.5 mpg.
    Just over quater of a tank from Shrewsbury to Leeds I'm chuffed with that if I'm honest.

    Next thing is get all the dics and calipers sorted out.

    Can anyone recommend a place to rebuild/paint calipers?

    Good to get the preventative maintenance out the way mate. Not exciting like mods/upgrades but much more essential.

    Will keep eye on replies to your Calipers question as I'm in need as well.

    Cheers mate, I think it's two owners since you and I.

    Im running in to a few problems (maybe because I am picky)
    I need to do all calipers,discs and pads.
    I think one of the lamba/o2 sensors is dead.
    Ball joints on arms
    Front sub frame
    And even tho it's been done by last owner I think the gearbox is started crunching in fourth gear.

    We will get there tho.

    In regards to gearbox, this could just need some new gearbox oil, I'd do this first before assuming the syncro is faulty.

    Thanks a lot I will get some on order later today, I'm not driving it this weekend so fingers crossed.

    It is a list but the colour keeps me wanting to get it sorted. As its a non cup, I'm thinking about not going for the "red calipers" just to mix it up a bit and I like to be diffrent.

    Bit of an update.

    Iv messaged Brake calliper specilists this week to get a quote on having all
    Callipers rebuilt and painted a diffrent colour.
    Just want to ask for your thoughts on the quote.

    1c34cd32-8c32-4820-9198-54d23c1ac370_zpseh9x7yn0.gif

    As for discs and pads, Iv had a read though the forum, I'm pretty sure I will go for the brembo HC fronts, do they do HC for the rears?

    Pads wise Ferodo DS1.11 or Ds2500??
    Yet to look at brake fluid but I want something which is used on standard cars or better.

    Iv also order some gearbox oil.
    Elf tranself NFP 75w80, Iv checked it works for the Clio gearbox.

    I had
    I had a similar quote minus some of the service items. By umming and ahhing a bit they offered me a one day only price with a fairly decent discount so it may be worth emailing them to say thanks for the quote, you're really not sure and will be getting some other quotes, is that the best price you can do. In the end I just bought new calipers for a lot less than your quote.

    And thats the crux of it isnt it.

    Christ that is some money for a refurb and a paint. When you can buy a full seal kit for £12 a caliper for example.......

    Bit of an update.

    As some of you no I'm having trouble with brake callipers and gearbox oil at the moment.
    Long story short.
    Iv ordered new callipers for all four corners as it works out the same price to get them refurbished.
    Small issue with the callipers one of the tears are not in stock so just waiting on that.
    Finally got a reply for the company and they are hopeful that next week they will be Sent.

    With the gearbox oil. I ordered via eBay and made sure it was the correct oil for the TL4 and received the incorrect oil. Had a chat and I agreed to send it back have a refund and I ordered though there actual website. Again the oil is the same as last and incorrect.
    Im thinking about going with another company and just selling this oil I have as I don't want to send it back again.

    At the moment I just feel like this is a moan fest and not much is going on with my project/progress.

    Anyway to brighten it up a little. Here is a picture :smile:

    Bit of an update.

    So after all the waiting Rofag came thought and I received my calipers
    Just need to send them away now for paint.
    Iv also bought some Mr pink pins.
    Need to order some discs and pads.

    C06D0E9E-5055-45BF-8FC3-29FC87E9A5CA_zpsfqw8p0fw.gif

    Iv changed over the reversing light switch but they still arnt working and still saying select nutral when my foots on the brake. So it's a clutch start.
    Has anyone got a fuse board diagram with listed fuses. Maybe I missed one.

    Blade is not siting properly on the from bumper because the thread that holds it each side dosnt exist.

    Gearbox oil has been changed but I still have a crunch going in to forth gear.
    There is a lot of play in the gearstick 2cm back and 1cm to the side) now so wondering if this could be the issue?? Will be having a look at this at some point as it dosnt feel direct like when I bought it? Worn bush?.

    I'm not really having much luck with the the car and I have thought about selling it on and buying another in a different colour.
