New addition to the Cowley Stable

Postby PaulC1959 » Tue Dec 05, 2017 10:07 am

So despite reducing the stable a few years ago leaving me with just the Venturi and Minari kit car I have been tempted to buy something else........

Seen here under its nice new expensive made to measure Stormforce cover...

I am sure there will be someone out there who can recognise what it is????? lol :D

Spot on Martin, you are good at this game! :up

Apparently its full moniker is a Renault Sport Megane 230 F1 Team R26! They do like a long name at Renault don't they?

Purchased from a certain Mr Sheader, a lovely tidy 2007 car in Liquid Yellow. :D

Picked it up at the weekend and enjoyed the drive back home even in the foul weather, only downside the car was filthy when I got back to Dunstable. Cleaned it the next day before putting the cover on.

Cover from below company and they make a range of 4 tailored covers from garage use up to full on serious outside/waterproof. Offering covers for over 50 Renault models including the below:

A110, A310, GTA/A610, Spider, Clio, Twingo, 5, 21 & Megane.

Shame they can't get my cover right, ordered one for my Evo6 and so far, the ones they have sent me don't really fit it!

Phil have you tried Specialized covers. I have used them a couple of times and they have even made me a special one for the Le Manns to allow for the wide wheel arches .

Yes, I used them for my R5 Gordini, GTA and 610 covers. They are great, but the prices are quite high now at £300, which I would not mind if the local cats did not sharpen their claws onto it. These alternative covers are much cheaper, so I thought I would give them a try, to no success though :(

Hi Martin

Seems fine, still in place and hardly moves as it has two straps to fasten to the bottom at the sides located just behind the front wheels and just before the rear wheels. Pull them in tightish and the fit is nice and snug, add to that the optional security steel cable with rubber cover on the security cable and padlock and it seems a nice bit of kit.

Wow, these French guys love their food and cars!

Look what I found under the bonnet at the weekend, escargot gently heated and ready to serve at engine temperature. LOL
