    I have have a Toyo on my 197, Like all they will fail at the exhaust Flexi in time but its a cheap and easy fix to either replace the Flexi in situ or to spend another £160 and get another manifold. I would...

    Any help on finding out the number of my sliverstone gp??

    Hate to say it but even France have no idea whats what as records of these cars where not kept. I spent hours upon hours dealing with someone very high up in the Renault sport devision and yet he could get nothing from France or UK. It seems from all the data and info I have managed to gather...

    Any help on finding out the number of my sliverstone gp??

    There is not very many car makers that actually put chassis number to limited edition number and then to reg plate and then keep a record of it. All they do is build the car and slap a sticker on it. If you ever get a R27 F1 take the 4 small screws off and take the plaque off and you will see...

    Spot of rust above rear wheel arch

    Bumper rubs on arch with grit and salt, Paint cracks , Water gets in, Dust gets it, Water sits and it eats away. Get bumper off and get it repaired ASAP, a smart repair guy should have that fixed easy and relatively cheaply.

    Any help on finding out the number of my sliverstone gp??

    Service details, warranty work & recalls won't be an issue for Renault UK but trying to get there correct numbered plaque will be a nightmare. I even have the OE Part number for the R27 plaque and renault will not supply or provide it and it is not matched to any chassis number or reg. 182...

    So thought I would change the door handles over and what a nightmare that is. Popped the Gromit off to turn the T30 torx and it just kept spinning and spinning and nothing happened. Gave up on that so tried to get the main handle out. After messing about with this the large metal block that is...

    So some more updates today and once again cosmetic. For the last two years a small bubble of rust has started where the bumper meets the rear 1/4 and the bubble came off. Spoke to my mate who has been doing smart repairs for the last 15 years and he was very reluctant to do it due to it being...

    Seat belts - Yellow

    I would make sure you have a radio code and disconnect the battery for around 10mins before you work on any airbag. People so you dont have to and say its not needed but for me when I do alot of work on the car the battery is disconnected through good practice
