    I bought this car in May on fleabay from JIMGTT, very original and standard just needs few bits and pieces doing to get her sorted! Progress is alittle slow as its taken a back seat to the clio cup and the raider although hoping she'll make ND2012!

    Long overdue update, progress is slow due to lack of time and money as I own 2 other cars, anyways had the brand new windscreen fitted in February, when March came I had to move the 11 as was moving out of the house. I did consider selling up as space was an issue with me taking the 172 Cup and Raider, so have found a home for the old girl on my Nans drive for now.

    On driving her to her new home, radiator developed a leak from where a mate of a mate made a good rad out of the original one and a phase 2 i bought second hand, needless to say it didnt last long so i managed to source a good nearly new phase 1 rad.

    Got a full set of anti roll bar bushes to fit along with the top mount bushes to stop the 'shady' handling.

    The old girl had a hole in offside jacking point, and inner wing where it had been repaired before just rather badly. Took her for bit of a drive to a chap who's very handy with a welder to do the honours,- cheers Mal! went to pick up the old 11 this afternoon [​IMG]

    Car seems to be coming along ok now, finding some new parts to replace the worn out is always a challenge. Exhaust centre section has a few holes so sourced a new one to go on, also took the 11 for a cheeky MOT today and at 26 years young all good to go for another 12 months! [​IMG]

    Received my replacement shocks for 11 that I found on ebay, been watching the rears for a while, however from another seller found some brand new old stock front Monroes aswell! Bit of a bargain of the year, all shocks delivered £52.00!!! [​IMG] Just need to get fitting them now [​IMG]

    Bit of an update, the 11 emerged from the garage after winter so decided to get started on the front suspension taking strutts out, and front wishbones replaced as bushes and balljoints past their best.

    With the strutts off and taken apart, I cleaned up the spring cups and bought new genuine top mounts, bearings and anti roll bar bushes from Renault rather handy that my mate now works at Renault! lol

    Also decided to buy new front coil springs while everything was off and whilst they were still available [​IMG]

    Have made some progress on the 11 recently, earlier this month carb was rebuilt as pretty sure it had never been done since 1986! Then got it set up and replaced a couple of hoses for piece of mind along with new dizzy cap, rotor arm, ht leads and aux belt ready for the trip to National Day at Blyton Park.

    Also popped a head unit in the old girl [​IMG]

    Progress has been slow after ND, I did however get given a few spares bits and pieces from a guy at renault where my mate works, he used to own an 11 turbo himself, so he kindly donated these to the spares fund of project 'Dood' Also sorted a loose trim panel in the boot by stumbling across these clips on good on ebay for pennies, have had some luck with finding parts for the old girl!

    The exhaust on the 11 has been blowing for a while from the centre section, so as ive had a replacement standard centre section kicking about for getting on for a year it was time to get it fitted with MOT once again looming, bit of grinder action and it was off!

    New centre fitted on Dood, looks pretty solid under there, MOT done so all legal for another year [​IMG] Next up will be fit new rear shocks and new tyres on the original wheels, although that will have to wait until next year as time to pop in the garage for winter until spring time.

    Thanks guys, its basically the thread to date from elsewhere ;-) not that it shows! Anyways, progress has been a little slow as Ive had the 11 since May 2011 and it takes abit of a back seat to my daily 172 and the raider. Hoping to get it out of the garage from its winter hibernation soon to get a few more bits done and drive it to stop thinking of selling lol
