    Nice colour.

    Can rem how bad the inner ones where.. I can just remember the steering rack ones are worse. With with the subframe in the car.



    Just make sure you get the correct ones. Lots of miss information out there as the cup/trophy arm was thicker.

    Ahh I think the issue is compressing te clamp around the new inner bush enough to be able to get the bolt in.

    2018 UPDATE

    Evening all. Well we’ve been busy with a bit of a winter refresh under bonnet. Started by removing all the alloy parts - upper inlet, engine mount, alternator bracket and brace bar and fuel rail protector and sent them off to be vapour blasted. Whilst they were away we’ve cleaned up everything as best we could and given the block a coat of hammerite. We also fitted a new sent of genuine plugs.

    We then finally fitted an new front grill. Unfortunately I have only been able to track down the battery decal and not the one on the left. My graphics lady can reproduce but at around £300 I think I will struggle to break even - there can’t be that many people who want to buy one now they are NLA from Renault. Scanning an original is a possibility if anyone would lend me one?

    All finished for now and back on the road with a fresh MOT - only done 3025 miles in the year.

    Looks great, really nice job. Giving the engine block a clean and coat of paint is also on our list of things to do.
