I'd like to be out on track ASAP, so cracking on with it as fast as I can. Well, as fast as funds allow

Nope, the only way now is track! Or scrap

As for the cage... I'd like to put a cage in the car, it's prepped for it now, so time will tell.

All parts that have been purchased, will fit a Clio 182, so if the car turns out to be a lemon, I can very easily swap everything over to a 182. That car will get a cage, but I'm holding out until I know this car drives and handles the way it should :should:

Steering wheel is one of the 'treat to myself' parts...You know, when you tell your wife, here's something I treated myself to ... there will most likely be plenty of other treats

Great work with yours

Thing is... I've only ever driven this car 100 yards, just to make sure the wheels actually did do around I have no idea how it drives, but if it's good enough for plenty of other track day users... it's good enough for me to take a gamble on


Thanks for all of the great comments guys, it's been a long time coming and I just want to be flat out
