    So the busy weekend on the Clio didn't stop untill this morning!

    Went out and gave it a quick clean and wax

    Hopefully it will stay clean for the drive to Wales on Saturday 40b68c71e0a508929913ff44bc09985c.jpg dc27274ffd90550bf66c400592eeb034.jpg

    Few little updates if that's what you can call them .


    Picked up some track tyres/fast road tyres for the Laguna Silverstone wheels I also picked up

    Tyres are federal fz-201 and managed to get 5 with good tread probably 3-4mm for £114

    Perfect to test out


    Silverstone wheels cost me £65 . They're a little rough but had some ok tyres on them. Got them home and sprayed them black straight away to cover up the poor condition of them


    Will be putting the Silverstones on whilst mine go for refurb.



    Also went to visit family in north Wales and took a scenic route. Car was spot on through the whole journey . Done 315 miles and averaged 32mpg I'll take that c447b8e1671ce2425a6f62f734ec8d17.jpg bc6876cb36ef3fdfe2ff30cc4955ef70.jpg b3508fc158a66fe42ee82f8a3f592516.jpg df91f5d9722e88b58c5efc699fcef444.jpg bdb4482b4533ab10047b91a9e1da53d6.jpg

    Blacked out badges and other bits. Think it might have had a cage in it too.

    Fitted the Laguna wheels whilst my stock ones are in for refurb and picked up some cup shocks.

    Just need the time to fit them now and get the car clean ready for FCS
