Looks mint on the white wheels. So low!
Which model AST's are they?
Lovely. Surprised you had to make the hole bigger though. I’ve not heard mention of that before
My bad. Didn’t realise you was on later top mounts. I just assumed you’d had to slightly enlarge hole. member on here trying to sort out his topmounts to suit Gaz golds. Facing similar issuesI’ve got the later style top mounts that had a tiny hole.
Check post nine and you will see why it had to be cut
I've removed my rad support legs with no issue as has @trackspec197So getting ready for this year. Suspension components require a bit of attention. New ball joints currently being fitted courtesy of Rene and his uprated ones, got one side almost finished just waiting on some poweflex bushes for the wishbone and new anti rotation links. Not too bad a job, just need access to a hydraulic press. Also made some bushes on a lathe to assist pushing them in and out (idea stolen from the how to on here)

Also giving the brakes a bit of a refresh. New HC discs on the front along with some DS1.11 pads, excited to try these out and see how they compare to the DS2500s. Also wanting to get the brakes sent away for refurb and repaint in yellow but this will have to wait another month or so. New Mr Pink pins to fit also.

Last but not least some shock covers fitted to add a bit of protection to the ASTs, hurts to see them get a grimey from road dirt.

Wanting to drop the rear subframe and get it powder coated as well as get some strengthening plates welded in as I don't run a separate spring/damper.
Anyone know of the disadvantages of cutting the legs off of the rad support? Is this only suitable for track only cars with supporting changes?
Thank you kindly, love the lads on here! stay safe
Firstly, very unlucky with the M2 ... stunning car, and I'm sure you'll have sorted in no time. Clio 200 and an M2.. you are definitely winning the 'two car garage' competition.
Secondly, what a brilliant thread! You've done some awesome work on your Clio, what a beauty. What's your opinion on the Dunlop's? Have you had a chance to use them in anger? I'm hoping to get a set of spare wheels in the near future, but haven't pinpointed which tyre to go for. Frontrunner was the Nankang AR-1, but had never seen the Dunlop DZ03G until I read through this thread, so would be interested to hear your opinion.
