Fuel system pulled for renewal
As suspected high pressure pump is dead,lifter works but given work involved to replace it's got to be worth swapping.
Lots of perished breather pipes,just looking for trouble.Renew and replace after sorting out the rot around the rear framework.The tanks are a tight fit into the body with just the bottom plates( rotted away mostly) keeping them in place.
Replace ign module with new NGK item also make new braided lines .
Shockers I'm getting AVO to quote on new coilovers.Measure all tie arms and strip down all running gear and frames for refurb.Brake discs are stuck solid on hubs .....bearings I cant work out yet until I strip right down and can see them properly but balljoints and damper bushes all look very familiar .

Media city is in Salford, pretty much up north by my reckoning.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

Is there a predicted date for this car being back on the road? I'd like to arange a Venturi meet during the summer, probably somewhere central. Maybe late July or Aug.

As far as I can tell there are 6 Atlantiques in the U.K. They are based in Dorset, Somerset, Glos, Warks, Suffolk and one other that I now can't recall the location of. A pub meet/lunch in the Cotswolds would appear to be the most likely/convenient location.

No predicted date ....I've 10 cars either here or booked in for full on resto so it all gets a bit fluid with me going from one to another and getting them to a certain stage then working with others and their schedules .........Parts to source or research and a couple of major ohh fecks to fix.....AVO are making me some new adjustable coilovers if anyone is interested .
I'm stripping engine of ancillaries for a tidy up and renew pipes and hoses etc + poss turbo ++
All running gear/frame, trailing arms etc should got for powdercoating in the next week or so

It'll be done when it's done is the usual timeframe

Where does the time go ?

It's back on the ramp now and getting the body frame sorted is next job ...lot's of grinding and drilling and swearing at inanimate objects .......Every fixing to be replaced it seems as all just blobs of red rust .I've tried soaking in WD40 overnight but it doesn't seem to work that well for me :thinking :sarcasm

All subframes.wishbones etc back from powder coat .
