  6. Was 2 weeks or so ago, not had chance to post... but changed the Renault badges to black, new custom RS badge, redone the rear fins and front pinstripes to be fatter, and added the RS Megane sticker to the rear F84768BE-B227-4142-BDEE-A637585DB5E8.jpeg 967E6DB7-0E02-4DE3-9C3A-1C41AA1C19BF.jpeg 0516FBA5-53AA-47D2-932A-70B97B5D1AF4.jpeg
     
  7. Where did you get the red pinstripe? And what size is it?
     
  8. Got a 10 meter roll off eBay for £4, 20mm width... much better quality than the shit sheet vinyl I bought before which faded in colour after like 2 weeks. Slightly brighter red than the car but you can't tell. Had to trim the fins because they're thinner than 20mm

  17. Visited Mark Black at MRS for a sports cat install. Now running stock map with 200 cell, mid silencer delete and standard back box. Sounds just how I want it to without droning too much. Everyone recommends Mark and I can see why, nice guy and knows his stuff!

  24. Car was filthy after trackday on friday 20181119_192027.jpg 20181119_192115.jpg
     
  25. Got my car MOT'd last weekend with the only advisory being a worn boot on the NS front anti rotation link. My new under car 200 cell sports cat performed perfectly and sailed through the emissions test. Replacement anti rotation links purchased and fitted last night with, surprisingly, relative ease. Has tightened the steering up nicely too which is a nice bonus

    Gave the inside windscreen a good clean, and applied some Gyeon Anti fog, also did the front side windows
     
  28. Have you got any pictures of how this is installed? I'm thinking of doing the same to my R26. What CAT did you go for?
     
  29. It’s all in the thread Simon just search his posts.

     
  30. As mentioned the details are spread out in this thread, but to save you hunting for them here's some details:

    I bought the following 3" 200 cell 'E' marked euro 3/4 spec universal sports cat:
    https://www.darksidedevelopments.co...rts-cat-catalytic-converter-pipe-2-5-3-0.html

    To fit it I bought 3 x sets if the following v-band sets:
    https://www.darksidedevelopments.co...ale-1-5-1-75-2-2-25-2-5-2-75-3-0-3-5-4-0.html

    I then got the cat welded in locally. I got it positioned under the car in the downpipe as close to the front of the car as possible. At the same time I had a decat pipe knocked up. Due to all the joints being on v-bands it's a simple quick job to swap between the cat and decat pipe.

    The car passed the emissions test without any problems

  31. Thanks @Dale1uk. Will likely go for the same cat as you. I've got a 2.75" Miltek so will get the 2.5" version and cut the end down to 2.75".

  32. Got my R26 alloys wheels dropped off at a local refurb company to change them from (poorly painted by previous owner) black back to anthracite. Looking forward to picking them up on Saturday and having my car looking back to its best
     
  33. Picked the wheels up today and got them fitted. Looks loads better

    After taking mine last year for springs fitting to Mark Black, then taking it back to him for a new clutch/flywheel - I decided to do the service myself

    Bought a full renault service kit, new thermostat (as mine seems to be running quite cold with poor fuel economy) and a braided damper delete line for the clutch ( from HEL as it was £10 cheaper than Ktec :smiley: )

    OH MY GOD do I regret doing this myself

    Thermostat - a special place in hell is reserved for whoever placed that there, the bolts are as hard to get to as doing the bloody forge blanking plate.

    Clutch line - not too bad, a minute to swap once the battery tray is out, then used a pressure bleeder connected to the brake fluid tank, a one man eeziblead kit on the bleed nipple, cranked the pressure up - pumped the pedal like a mad man till it started to firm up, left it for another minute watching the bubbles until the fluid was clear, closed the bleed valve, job done.

    Spark plugs - piece of piss, no bolts seized on coils, straight out, straight in.

    Oil filter - sweet jesus christ, tried a strap wrench, then a chain wrench, then hammering a screwdriver through the bastard which just tore it in half and all it's insides came out. Eventually had to cut the rubber with a razer blade then use an old leather belt tightened up on it and my entire body weight and it finally came off. Took FOUR HOURS.
    Whoever did the last service and didn't oil the filter before fitting, I hope you get crotch rot.
