    well as my s3 is in the audi spray shop getting the roof rails done thought it would be a good time to get of my arse and spend some time getting my clio williams 2 started and cleaned has been 2 years :blink: first of took the spark plugs out and put a little diesel with a syringe and left it over night then turned the engine by hand in the morning everything seemed sweet so drained the oil and put new oil and a filter on, new battery and some fuel and it started up straight away now running sweet good old engine :icon_thumright: gave it a wash in and out and a little polish dont look bad for nearly 18 years old time to get an mot and get it out on the road and have some fun:racer:

    Always had a liking for these wee motors, aswell as the 172/182 etc.

    Strange, as i usually hate small cars and rather walk, and especially hate any French cars....

    So, whats the plans for it?

    for the last few months i have been busy with a restoration project getting this williams 2 mint again it sat ther for 4 years off the road and really rotted away :( thats the only thing with this car is just body work everything else is sound. Also about a year ago i bought an other clio williams a number 1 which i will be restoring in the future its put away in the garage ever since i got it as i thought i would be breaking the no 2 as it was in such a sore state as you will see, but me and my mate steve managed to bring back to life :)

    im going to try a copy and paste alot of my stuff with this project of an other forum enjoy
