    Hey my name is thomas from germany. Perhaps someone knows my white clio which I crashed 2015 at nordschleife exit fuchsröhre :smiley:



    Now a pair of pictures of the white ph2.

    comp1lvg1fo9qms.jpg


    here you can see the cracked seat rail. In this episode, I have also suffered the head injuries, despite Helm.

    After the insurance for four weeks has been a bit difficult to send a reviewer came this then on 2.7. and estimated the replacement value realistically high, which pleased me very much. The residual value, however, was astonishingly high.
    Still, I decided to keep the car. A short time after a suitable successor was searched for, until Sven wrote to me. Ab picked up in the Westerwald and the cart.
    So now for the conversion

    comp6g1rxy9q7np.jpg


    At first, all the decals had to be from me personally so not at all.

    comp7cbg4dvkqr5.jpg


    After that the whole car was actually taken apart to save more weight. The engine bearings were converted and the air conditioning and the radio flew out.

    comp8hjvzsqu9r0.jpg

    comp94kgspu6n0w.jpg


    Unfortunately, in the course of which was once again revealed Fusch am KFZ. Three times you can guess who has the temple for Sven has installed. Me Was bad when I saw this, the underbody protection was not removed before welding so that this became porous, as well as was welded diletantisch. The pictures show the situation nach !!! clean and sand. Just do not understand how you can build such a measure on strange cars. With its own car it may be left to everyone ...


    comp10fu4w76xi0m.jpg

    comp11y89zmhcogw.jpg


    It was screwed every afternoon so that the goal in 20 days of the car finished did not fall into arrears.

    comp120cgek65pn3.jpg


    In the next few days, rims were procured:

    comp138vwiacyk5h.jpg

    comp148fks1tp35z.jpg


    In the interior, the first owner has designed adventurous cable trees. Unbelievable what you sometimes get to see.

    comp15at109wkmv2.jpg

    comp16tj9y6ghmbo.jpg

    comp17z80k9iugn2.jpg


    Of course much of the old car was taken over, as well as the studs:

    comp18u9fpntsib1.jpg

    comp19ajfi93c04m.jpg


    The drillings for the six-point belts were made. Most of the work was of course again the removal of the underbody protection.

    In the interior, it ran parallel to it. The steering wheel was replaced, the moldings changed, other shells installed and the door panels were installed. On the muttering came so much to the day: D
    The black has unfortunately a very high equipment level, which is why you had to worry about some cables extra long.

    Space for the 92mm brake ventilation! The mop has been flown out. in the near future a few Pretty Lauftleitblese will be produced which come to the stub axle.

    comp27ndgxja85ru.jpg


    The rims were cleaned, old weights and glue removed. The old 03G came down and the tried and tested RE 070 was pulled up. The vehicle on the picture is by the way a 120 Defender with Recaro Sportster Cs and Steering Wheel, nice part: whistling:

    comp28lsk4mhoc7j.jpg

    Joa. Those were 20 grueling days. There were many complications due to the age or the winter operation of the Clios in the conversion, many screwed connections had to be renewed or solved for a long time. Now come still a few small things, maybe I polish the days the car times and will high-quality detail recordings.
    I hope the description you liked. This time I have unfortunately made very few ..

    Today again the brake ventilation somewhat improved.
    Are the first prototypes and actually developed for the Mini, but also fit the Clio quite well.
    Could go soon for a couple around the 30 € in series, if interest exists.
    In the pictures one sees the Feiderbein naturally relieved. For this, of course, a ventilating tube should be placed in the wheel house: whistling:

    so friends

    On Monday was milled in laborious work.

    Not to have handed the white car at that time is always paid again.

    imag1596ic3uhrt1al.jpg

    The preparations for the airbox conversion are actually finished. Positions for the compensating containers are found. Now only brackets are made and I'm done.
    I myself did not mill these components. At all, the expansion tank is a bit tricky and takes a lot of time. I hope it will be worth it: T:

    so es ging weiter.

    Ich stand vor der Frage wie ich den Polstecker am besten und am platzsparensten verstauene kann. Damals hatte ich dafür einfach einen großen Schaltkasten genommen, jetzt sollte er kleiner sein und vorallem flacher.
    Da ich nirgends etwas in 9x9x3cm gefunden habe kam ich auf die idee einen Notizzettelspender zu nehmen. Der Vorteil war, dass an einer Seite schon eine Öffnung vorhanden war und er schwarz war :tongueout:
    Wir haben also einen Grundsockel gefräst und dann mit zwei Stehbolzen den Deckel aufgesetzt, an der Öffnung habe ich noch etwas schaumstoff zur besseren abdichtung verklebt.

    In addition, a holder for the Aibox has been milled as low as possible. The fuse boxes were lightened and cut into the lock carrier.
    The rubber guide from the original intake (rear of the brake booster) fits perfectly on the nipple of the Carbonairbox, which makes it very easy to use this.
    All parts have been screwed into the existing thread of the gearbox bracket.

    Now only the water balance tank is missing. This is mounted above the engine mount, is from Clio 2 RS.

    I have also completely rebuilt the motor bearings on Vibratec: D

    here again a few pictures in the employment.

    the front part of the track was slightly broadened, the diffuser was hung higher, and cut-outs were cut for the rear wheel house. Is currently badly in the trend.
    Oh yes, the roadrunner is alsoh again in the car: D
    AR1 are ready. Furthermore, extension sleeves for the steering geometry of custom-racetec.de are waiting for installation.

    long nothing more. I had used the last two weeks of vacation and the time productive.
    I once polished the work ethic and the Clio once. Washing, washing, baking, washing, polishing, polishing, fine polishing, sealing. All in all was and I am very satisfied with the result, however, I exaggerated it with the kneading and partial additional scratches in the paint which I also no longer rausbekomme XD naja seis drum the color depth is definitely in any case back.
    Oh yes new toyos are also on it. The nankangs were not at all usable.

    In addition, we have finished our surveying stand with turntables and I have of course also built for the Clio a cord stand which can be screwed tightly and simply with the body
    so that you do not have to re-align the cord every time (you have to control them anyway)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Joa. After the adjustment was vigorously tested and also the extension sleeves for the steering felt well. Even now I show my girlfriend the line, but can not take long to drive me away: whistling:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Then came the last Thursday, unfortunately, an incident. In the cozy roll, the 5th gear in the Kesselchen area took its leave. At first I thought it was that Ausstücklager, however, I came on Friday to the conclusion that it is rather a capital drive damage.
    Be the first. The parts for the revision of the new 003er gearbox are already ordered and if necessary, I will also exchange the individual gearboxes so that the transmission is somewhat shorter.

    For the coming season, I've got a trailer!

    [​IMG]


    For the winter, I had planned to save a little superfluous weight. So I thrown out the dashboard and removed the heater box.
    With the cooling water hose from the Cupclio it works quite well.

    mbwz4fzy.jpg

    The heating box weighs only 7kg, of course, the control panel and the piping falls away.

    After that I started to reduce the wiring harness to the minimum.
    I'm still not quite finished with the dashboard wiring harness.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The airbags in the steering wheel as well as on the passenger side are also flown out, which I have not even weighed ...


    [​IMG]

    the dashboard wiring harness I then rather rather completely expanded since the colleague is a bit unclear.
    In between there was always a small check if everything still works: whistling:

    [​IMG]

    Almost at the end I saved 4.5 kg cable.

    [​IMG]


    On the carrier of the dashboard was also the one or other bridge became superfluous.
    The part I then painted on the occasion also directly, since one will see it later on the side probably.

    The breakthroughs in the front wall, I first closed with aluminum plates. For the new ventilation, I'll probably use the breakthrough top right under the disc.

    [​IMG]

    it went to the bitumen mats in the car. A friend had once seen somewhere that the dinger can easily solve with dry ice. In Bonn there is a company where you get the stuff for a Human Award and so we removed yesterday at his mini and the Clio the mats. for both cars have 15KG enough.
    The trouble with Clio is the mat under the roof. For this we have built a styrofoam shape so that it is possible to press the dry ice against the plate as we did not know how the lacquer would tolerate it if the ice would lie on the roof.
    The dry ice should lie 5-10min on the mat so that this can then be removed without residue.

    So I do not have 10 minutes to sit under the roof I have built this great construction XD

    n9jgv4f5.jpg

    So slowly gladly the roof then and a knocking with the fist could be solved the mat already.

    [​IMG]

    With the other mats one could listen to the ice as the mats freeze so much that they have already peeled off under loud cracking and at the end were only a few hits with the rubber hammer needed so that the mats completely from the sheet loose.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Overall, I have thus saved 5KG.

    suizs2ps.jpg

    [​IMG]


    Today I then cut out the superfluous sheets.

    aumgdtbv.jpg

    [​IMG]

    ro4a5daa.jpg
    in total are then also about 3.5kg

    [​IMG]

    Here are, of course, many who now think. watt for the few kilos such an expense? Some even told me that there is nothing to bring the fuck out.
    Of course, there is no relation to the yield! I love to make the car somehow still a bit better and screw it for my life.
    Currently it has the 0Grad during the day. and still I almost drive the whole vacation by the car. Others bring the car to Raeder leave there a pile of money lie and have u.U. at the end still ne cart at somehow rumgefuscht was.

    In the next few weeks oil pressure and temperature display, as well as a current interrupter and a voltmeter are installed. The dashboard is a bit easier and then flocked before the season.
    Unfortunately I do not have enough pictures to screw. I am trying to do this in the future again more often and to report more detailed!

    so went on.

    I have now the dashboard wiring harness by about 2.5kg facilitated and everything continues to work up to the ZV of the driver's door.
    Well, one should think is not so bad I close with the emergency key. Thats not OK. Since that lock apparently no electricity gets I iorgendwo made a mistake of the but is to fix if necessary.
    The entire cable tree I have wrapped with fabric tape (with flow) by Tesa, I am absolutely freezing! The stuff is very elastic and partly it is installed in similar form already from factory.
    Only the cable from the cigarette lighter and the driver's door are still open since I do not know how I should lay there or just have to put cables for the ZV again: whistling:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In addition, I just once again the holder for the fuse box to the right of the steering wheel facilitated. The strut in itself I had already shortened anyway.

    ryv94ghz.jpg

    [​IMG]



    lh8a6k3r.jpg


    after the ZV on the driver no longer worked I have after long search in the wiring harness but then found the place. now everything works as it should and I have saved 4.95KG cable. One could still thin the motor cable tree but there is no time for that.

    Because of my job, I have to work through a weekend after the other so I'm not sure if I will drive this year.
    Makrolonscheiben Fußstütze, dashboard, ventilation, and oil pressure and temperature still waiting for installation or conversion.

    I started with the aerocatch locks today.
    it looks as follows:

    Meeting the hole is the biggest fumble. At the end I had to pull the hood 3mm forward so that it fits, alternatively one could have made from the holes for the studs long holes. but it also seems to work.

    Have today the dashboard brought to Saarbrücken train. So it looked before, in a week I get it again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I cut the sides of the page. Despite the "light construction" it is still to be quite clean.
    On the board itself I have saved 1kg PE (ventilation nozzles etc. not included).

    Today I used the first discs.
    If you installed Makrolon, you save 3.5kg per door (remove the jack, put the glass in the door against Makrolon + tarermatte)

    [​IMG]


    I picked up the dashboard last Saturday in Neukirchen near Saarbrücken. All in all, I am satisfied. On a STelkle tweeter on the right is missing etrwas flock. but almost never.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    When the board was in it I could finally start with the final cabling of the additional instruments. This alone took three afternoons. For the oil temp and pressure I have decided for the flange before the oil filter. this is actually the best solution as I find.

    [​IMG]


    After that, I have a small boat fan installed the currently only one stage can be circulated. Have the similar so synonymous with the Cup cars seen. let's see whether the disk is blocked or remains free: D

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Last Sunday we cut the discs together and glued the macrolon disks. went quite well. I'm curious how long I'm happy with it because they really very easily scratch. The fit is really perfect.

    [​IMG]


    After I have dared the car from the inside then almost finished (footrest is still missing) I have the CLio behind a little lowered, more goes now with the standard feathers ersdt times no more.
    today it overcame me then again and I have the car for 12 hours polished XD

    Nice! I've watched your videos on YouTube, loved the white one.
    Your pics in your later posts aren't working and one of the posts is in German:sean: Looks like you've built a good one with the black clio though!

    The Clio is now almost ready.
    Basically, was not much invested over the winter if one times the Macrolonscheiben. All in all (with passenger seat) I now quite exactly 50kg downpaced and 250 hours of work invested. much weight is no longer to fetch. Of course, you can still buy a lot of GFK then you also need a cage. A very light battery is possibly still an option. Also in the front of the engine compartment I would like to replace dads one or other steel part with aluminum.
    Probably runum Uniballlager will be installed over the season.
    Now only a part of the disc is missing, the footboard and a little bit of small stuff. After Easter it is then again To Breidscheid: 0.0:: T:

    afterwards I first build the R3 Replica manifold: love:

    The bend is in there. from the outside, the elbow has a high processing quality. However, the pipes that lead into the last collector after trimming have not even been deburred. The I then laboriously lengthened with an extension for the Dremel.

    In the production car is then much less space than thought, the manifold comes in the relieved state to the Stabi and the heat shield or on the place where the Schaltseile run is also quite tight. Well what do you want to do, tomorrow I still make the intermediate tube and then is tested on Sunday times.

    had again installed a KAt. the car is a lot more leezer as I find however still loud.

    [​IMG]


    Also, I could test the days at a cloudbreak times the fan, it has just been enough! : T:

    [​IMG]




    Short update!
    The days I had times again problems with the start of the Clios. Time he jumped very badly and the starter has turned properly then went nothing.
    Comically, after pushing and cooling, he jumped back to normal.
    In the assembly of the R3 elbow much to me already, that the heat shield to the manifold comes and I assumed that the starter might become too warm.
    Since the heat-protection plate directly at the elbow was necessary to the expansion of the starter completely out anyway.
    So I have the elbow also directly with heat protection tape wrapped and also the starter with aluminum foil. The heat shield was a little machined so that a gap of about 5mm between sheet metal and elbow is.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    In the expansion of the starter and the subsequent control, I found that one of the four coals had been demolished, possibly he went so badly. Coal exchange, magnetic switch exchanged and GO!

    [​IMG]


    The supplied cable binders from sheet metal were so shit that I have simply straddled wire, keeps great! I had so seen at nem Raederauto: whistling:

    fcqtkgud.jpg

    [​IMG]


    Also, I have a light battery here in the forum ordered and today with a holder built. All in all, I have saved again about 5KG weight.

    Bare with me - i'm going to have to digest some of this. But you do things properly don't you ! From the crash itself - to the rebuilding of version 2. Keep them coming. Brilliant car and documenting of your pains. Literally.
