The crunchy 197

There is space to pass a flexible pipe from the side of the radiator, throught the side and up right behind the headlight. It just wont be on the same diameter as the V6 entry, because that is huge.

Did a similar thing with my distribution box under the bay too. Mounted using the same hole on the battery/gearbox mounting tray

Though I haven't got a V6 mounting plate yet

How did you get your fuse box all the back at the ECU? Looks tidy there.

Also, one thing to be wary of, the intake pipe/elbow (whatever you want to call it) may rub on the scuttle. Seen a few (myself included) had to trim a bit of the scuttle down & also there's a bolt back there which hangs down, my mates rubbed on that too & he had to cut the bolt down haha

It’s a Weeder Motorsport plate. The holes could do with a bit of tweaking, and I also had to space it up with nuts as it doesn’t sit flat.
I extended 2 of the wires and then untaped the loom which runs by the chassis leg. Was pretty easy to do. Be sound for you given you’ve got all the tools.

Already cleared all that. Sawed the little tab off underneath and took a flap wheel to the plastic. Oh, and I cut the pipe down about 10mm on each end.

It passes the time whilst I’m ‘working’

I’ve spent a while this morning messing round with support settings, as my original ones have all gone to shit after changing nozzle size.

What nozzle size did you go up to? There are so many variables on 3D printers, me and Adam Thomas have been talking about how "secret" options in Cura for example, a lot of trail and error to see what works for you!

Ha yeah, I always slice something the night before and set it going in morning, joys of WFH.
Also printed my first Cockosaurus and sent it to a friend (as I printed him some angled spacers for his camera doorbell) :tearsofjoy:

Anyways we have made your Clio thread a 3D printer thread haha.

Yeah basically the exact same I did with the scuttle panel.

Good idea on cutting the hose down actually, I hadn't thought of that. May do the same as it's a mega tight fit in there.

May also look at doing the same with the fuse boxes. I just have mine cable tied up at the moment

0.6mm
It’s cut the print time of my brake ducts in half, but I’m not happy with the surface finish of the material which is lay onto the supports.

The way it’s going, I’ll probably end up just printing parts which don’t need supports with it.

It’s worth doing. I’ve got about a 5mm gap now.

I still need to mount the box properly, as it’s just cable tied around the ecu atm. I just didn’t want it tied up down the front
