Hi all! Long time no speak. I kind of dropped off the scene. But long and short ruby (the off road aygo) (viewtopic.php?f=16&t=6818) has died. She blew her radiator, need a new master cylinder and a injector and it was going to cost too much to be economical.
These are the last two photos I have of her.
Image
Image
She was traded into a garage where I picked up a really low mileage 206.
This lasted me half a year, I resprayed the roof as the laquer was peeling.
ImageImageImageImageImage
A strut brace and bonnet bra went on as well as usual interview mods, parrot, head unit and sub!
Image
ImageImageImage

So that's brings us on to yesterday. I sold the 206 and bought the latest thing, A Renault Laguna II Estate. 1.8 16v.

Image

This is the latest project car. A few things planned for it. Unfortunately my mum took it for a test drive a Kerbed it so hard it blew the tyre off and bend the alloy. Already picked up a replacement of both. But it's silver while the rest of the cars wheel are black. So today's job is to spray that wheel black and install my sub. It came with a brand new Sony headunit with everything I need on it which is perfect.

On the list are-
New rear wiper or de wiper
Possible debadge rear end
Get rid of stupid scorpion sticker on the back end
Possibly tint front fog lights yellow
Needs a new xenon light bulb (in the post)
New flat wipers (in the post)
Led sidelights and number plate bulbs (in the post as well)
New key casing
New mirror/Mirror cap
New key cover cap
New key casing as the old one has aged badly
Tint rear headlights
Tint rear windows

That's all I can think of for now! So watch this space!

Look forward to hearing from you guys!

So it begins, spraying that odd alloy black to match with the others.
Image
Cleaning the wheel. My process is wash with soap, then alloy cleaner and brush, then rinse, dry. After all that I follow it over with white spirits.
Image
Taped up and ready to go.
ImageImage
Primer on!
Image
First pass on the Matt black.
Image
Three passes later, now two hours wait then I'll pull off tape and stick on car, though it won't be used till tomorrow! Aha :)

Oh nice, how did you get on with it? It would have been the original Laguna if I'm not mistaken? Also Hi Sam, hope you are well!

Oh nice! Bit of classic fun! It's got some poke which is nice, but very similar speed to 206, little faster but does feel nice. High spec inside and really comfortable to be in! Lovely car really!

Better picture on the daytime. I love that nose!

Been fitting the sub! A right pig but got it in the end. Had to route the wire form the engine bay through the wing and then into the car.

Image

Sub in the boot, I know it annoying the way it is but my wire was that bit too short :(
