Reanult clio 172

Item listed is a 2001 rare Monaco blue Renault Clio RS172 sport. I bought this car to restore as it had been parked off the road for at least 5 years. Since in my ownership the vehicle has undergone a restoration that has taken me just over a year.Engine was removed i have pictures if required. It has had a genuine timing belt kit, dephaser pulley, aux belt, tensioner and guide pulley aswell as waterpump with new coolant. It has also had a new thermostat, spark plugs, coil pack, 4 new fuel injectors. Sump was removed and mains/big end bearings all checked for wear. New sump and rocker cover seals and new crankshaft seals.New crankshaft position sensor and intake manifold gaskets and manifold painted yellow. A full engine ecu remap to optimise the powerflow exhaust with a printout.Whilst the engine was out, it has had a new clutch and a reconditioned 182 gearbox with the modified driveshaft plates to stop the circlips coming out-google this its common. The gearlinkage has had new bushes fitted at both ends so gear changes are nice and tight. It has also had a complete new offside driveshaft.Once the subframe was off the vehicle the front antiroll bar bushes was replaced along with genuine new front shock absorbers and top mounts. It has also had the front and rear brake discs replaced for drilled and vented ones with brand new brembo front pads and ebc red rear pads. Both rear wheel bearings have been replaced aswell. Once renewing the rear brakes we fitted new handbrake cables.Coming onto the body i have replaced the fuel pump and level gauge in the tank, it has had new steering wheel thumb grips fitted. A new pioneer DAB digital radio. On the outside when the engine was out the front bumper was repainted with new fog lights fitted. It has also had new wiperblades installed and the entire car has been mopped. This has made the paint really gleam however the only downside to this is that it does show up a few age related marks now.I am a car enthusiast so this has been a labour of love and is not suited to being turned into a track car. It has too many original renault parts fitted in the restoration i would hate to see it being thrashed around a track.It does have 4 new toyo proxy tyres and new locking wheel bolts. It has a full size spare with all jacking and wheel brace present.It has a new mot in november aswellAny questions please feel free to ask or any photos you wish to have as i have plenty from the restoration.I would consider another project to swap etc inc bikes, cars, vans or commercial
