A common Clio 2 rot spot is around the fuel filler flap. There is nothing to protect it from behind. The Coupe went here last year but the difference with this car is that the filler flap actually bolts to the affected area. It can rot to the point where the flap actually comes off in your hand. Mine is a bit grotty here but still solid. Ideally I would like to get a cut off from a scrap shell so that this can be fixed later down the line.

I have forgiven it for its climate control breakdown, just about.

The Coupe is back up for sale offsite, I wasn't prepared to let it go for as little as £900. All I have had so far are calls fron scam accident companies.

My Clio lived in a muddy field for 4 months being used as race car #becausemorons.... It certainly hasn't rotted around the filler cap.

Maybe a liberal coating of mud is the answer?

I took the Corsa to the Dumfries Motor Show today which was a round trip of 180 miles. It performed faultlessley and is actually pretty quiet and cruises fine at 65. It only used about 1/4 tank of fuel too!

A fair bit of loving yes! Got to know another couple of Scottish B owners which is always a good idea when spares are starting to thin!
