    Yeah I just swapped it over. My brother in law bought one second hand a few months ago for his Twingo 133 so they're still about!

    I'm in love with that Inferno....what a piece of kit! You must be proud of that Dan! Shame you had to get rid but the time always comes...

    Your 200 looks spot on too, great job with the vinyls...I'd never have the patience to even try it.

    Might have to keep my eye out for a Mk2 net, that looks really tidy, hell of a lot tidier than my boot at the moment..:oops:

    FCS 2016 soon came around. I bought a club stand ticket and showed my car with CSOC as I knew quite a few members on there from when I had the old car -

    I had a really good time at FCS, met lots of new people from other stands and the camping and late night pissing about is always fun.

    Do you have club stands at all these events?

    Sorry to hijack your thread so soon Dan.

    Just looked @Benno - and the one i bought was a 70cm x 70cm version. Loads on ebay of various qualities from £5 upwards. It fits pretty well to be fair (You know how much research i'd have done beforehand !). Just not quite as tailored as the MK2 looks to fit perhaps...

    I just hope I can get the 200 to that kind of standard. A lot of time went into the 182 haha.

    My other brother in law (Batesy) had a white 200 with black stripes and I really liked how that looked so it got me looking at sticker kits early on lol.

    Yeah I didn't realise there was a difference with the boot nets until about 10 minutes ago :tearsofjoy:

    The next modification is one of my favourites. The cup spoiler! I originally managed to get my hands on a cup racer spoiler from a local race team. These had the smooth end plates, smooth underside of the spoiler and the different mounting points.

    I bought this when I still had the 182 as a bit of a project but decided against it and sold the spoiler but kept the end plates.

    I liked the smoothed look of the spoiler instead of the indented 'RenaultSport' text so I bought a regular cup spoiler and filled it.

    I decided I liked the smooth end plates better as well so painted those yellow. I was really happy with the outcome!

    After this I did a few more little mods which included black centre caps, a new steering wheel insert and a black sunstrip -

    Car looks mint Dan, seen it a couple times in the flesh and always looks superb! Makes me jealous for a set of speedlines on LY!

    Would you recommend any bodyshops for any LY work? Just in case the dreaded day comes where it needs any work!

    Thanks mate! I do like the standard speedlines but wouldn't mind a set of OZ's or turini's lol.

    I work at a bodyshop in Mansfield and we've painted 3 liquid yellow cars. They've always turned out decent!

    Cheers mate, yeah I normally stick to Facebook and Instagram tbh

    My dad bought it me a few years ago through his work. I can find out the size for you? Most come with the little bracket so I just secured it to the plastic under the glovebox

    We normally do an event called 'Clio's In The Woods' a few times a year at Clumber Park when the weather is nice and try to get some good photos of the cars. (Autumn is my favourite tbh)

    Here's a few photos that people took of the 200 with a couple of other LY's, sporting its new spoiler and sun strip -

    I got chatting to Paul at Diamond Performance who makes all the badge covers and other various parts. Now some of you may know I do hydrodipping, so we decided to make a batch of diamond covers in a carbon fibre effect, as well as a few other bits and bobs.

    Here's a few photos as I thought you might like to see them. This was over a year ago now so various other carbon designs have been released since then which look a little more realistic. Even so, these did look good!

    FB_IMG_1515003652516.jpg FB_IMG_1515003655933.jpg FB_IMG_1515003648736.jpg FB_IMG_1515003953651.jpg FB_IMG_1515003958346.jpg FB_IMG_1515003967966.jpg

    He also gave me a set of black covers which look so much better than the standard silver badges imo so they went straight on!

    The next little mod to brighten up the interior was a set of yellow seat belts. I bought these off another member on the Clio group and gave them a good clean when I got home -
