Yes - looks great! Steel blue metallic I believe. Had a Genesis Coupe in that colour. Decent spec as standard and looks to be in good condition. Enjoy!

As I removed the rad and fan I thought it be good for a rust removal and a good coat of epoxy paint. Spent an hour cleaning the rad fins with compressed air and the amount of crap that I removed was shocking..

very nice. Did you blow from engine bay to outside to clear radiator fins? 

I've seen a comb to straighten them but thought it would just push dirt further in.

Thank you. I removed the lot from the car and left it soaking in warm water then blasted all the dirt out with compressed air form both sides.

      Hey guys, I want a rev limiter for my Mk2 1.3 polo, looking at the accuspark ones but wondering if you need the electronic conversion kit too for the coil, I’ve fitted it as specified and nothing, can anyone help

      Hi might have already been asked but can find it, 
       
      wanting to swap clocks in my mk2F polo coupe, I currently have the big analogue clock in place of the rev gauge and was wanting to swap this for GT like clocks with rev guage and digital clock, needing to know if there are wiring in place and it's just a plug in or if additional wiring will have to be done. 
       
      Any help will be appreciated 
       
      Thanks

      Hi all,
       
      I have a corroded connection on the dash electrics and every now and then i have to wiggle the plug to the instrument cluster to get the fuel gauge and engine temp gauge to work (i know its not a good idea but I havent got round to fixing it). However I wiggled it today with the engine running and I heard a loud pop coming from the engine and it then cut out, it will not start again and when i try to start it i get a strong smell of petrol....... Any ideas anyone? checked all fuses etc, there is still a spark but no fire

      My ebay link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Rare-CENTRA-14-inch-4x100-mk1-Renault-Espace-alloy-wheels-BBS-RA-RZ-OZ-Ronal-/182768524369?hash=item2a8dda5c51:g:ygYAAOSwgYVZw-is
       
      This is a set of 4 Centra alloy wheels, 4x100, including 4 x centre caps & a full set of locks & key. Spare set of locks also. Look at home on anything old. Epic wheels - simple but effective & so clean with the covered centre caps. I also love the complete lack of branding. 

      Many people are surprised they're not the OEM wheels as they blend in so well on my car, and they would on anything slightly boxy. 

      They are still in their original paint - before I bought them 2-3 years ago they had been stored for over 10 years by the previous owner so they are certainly in usable condition. I gave them a thorough clean, 3 layers of polish & 3 layers of wheel sealant every 6 months or so plus rinses in between so they're virtually in the same condition as when I got them. 

      They do show signs of use though - see pics - a couple of scratches & scuffs etc. One or two are quite sizable & are noticeable close up but to be honest when they're clean & shiny like this they're not really noticeable generally unless you're very close to the car & overall the wheels look tidy & still shiny. They would need a refurb to make perfect for sure - they're 30+ years old & have put in some hard yards in the past no doubt. I never felt the need when I saw how presentable they looked after a thorough clean & polish. So make up your own mind. 

      These look awesome mirror polished with the inserts painted black. The centre caps are metal so can also be polished! 

      Centra you may or may not know, were a wheel manufacturer who were held in similar standing to the likes of BBS, OZ & Ronal at the time. They made a number of OEM & aftermarket wheels. These particular wheels were the OEM wheels on the 1st Gen Renault Espace. 

      4x100, 14x5.5J, ET39. They have the Renault centre bore 60.1mm so spigot rings will be needed.

      It's not very often a complete set of these wheels come up for sale, each with centre cap.

      Feel free to ask any questions. My number is zero 7 eight 3 five 595 zero three two.

      Located in Manchetser M22. £250 Cash on collection only please, I can't post these.

      Thanks
