Robert's made a great job of this resto in a short space of time. The Renault 12 estate is without doubt a rare car - it's nearly forgotten these days. The quality of Robert's restoration is there for all to see. This is a car that looks factory fresh. Best of all, it's not tucked away in a museum or private collection. It's out on the roads, reminding people of the quirky, charismatic cars Renault used to make. HZD Once a popular model, the 12 has become an incredibly rare classic. This...

Track Rod Ends

1 Not always noticeable, a split track rod end gaiter will spill its lubricant grease, wear the joint, and make the steering feel loose and sloppy. A split steering rack gaiter enables oil to leak out and dirt to enter, which accelerates wear. To fit a new gaiter, the track rod end must be removed. O Clean any dirt and debris from the track rods using a stiff brush, and look for the spanner 'flat'. Measure from any point on the track rod to the centre of the track rod end. This will help when...

Renault Restoration

When I looked at the car it was crammed full of junk. Old wheels, bits of plastic, all sorts. I was amazed how well it cleaned up. The carpets are original, as are the door seals. Even the controls on the heater vents, which are famous for being snapped off easily, are still intact. The only thing I've changed is the door handles in the front. The rears were black, but the fronts red, so I fitted a spare set to the front so they'd all match up. With the estate finished and back on the road,...

Etype Prices To Rise Further

Following on from our buyers guide in the May issue about getting yourself an E-type for less than 20,000, Jaguar expert Philip Porter has said that now's the time to buy one. Porter believes that all the publicity that's bound to accompany the 50th anniversary celebrations in 2011 will drive up prices. Icon is an over-used word but it applies to the E-type, he said. Next year we'll be celebrating the model's 50th and this will inevitably raise the car's profile. So, this is the time to buy...
