    Default My Alliance projects

    The red one is the wife's 1985 DL currently in restoration, the black one is my 1986 DL, set for restoration as soon as i'm done with hers. The other two are for parts. Most of my friends think i'm nuts for doing this

    Don´t listen to your friends.When you finish the restoration of the 2 Alliances people look at you with jealously and they will want to have one like the yours.

    Schakal, most of the mechanical parts are still available, but they are getting harder to find. I must admit, i am currently hoarding all the parts i can get, as i plan on these cars being on the road for 10 yrs after restoration. It's mostly the trim pieces that are hard to find, window moldings being not available has been the worst problem, and have yet come up with a good solution for their replacement. I am currently looking at universal moldings that may be adapted to look original. Thanks for the nice comments guys, yes they will be head turners!

    Put more pics of the great work of restoration.

    In order of things I had a carburation problem with my Renault 6 and I had find a motorcycles mechanic named Omar,cuban boy.He have put my carburettor in order and now my 6 runs again.Today I have put gas on my 6 and I have been riding with it by Toledo.People looks my car and comment so rare is to see now a Renault 6.All streets are full of modern cars but my 6 is only 30 y.o.

    Renault 6 was a luxury Renault 4 with 5 door body like Renault 16 but only with 1.1 litre engine. Last owner was an old man who died and her wife sold me so cheap.Is´t electric blue body color all original.

    As soon as I can will put some pics of my loved 6.

    Hi csvlawrence.
    I saw that you came on the renault alliance club forum.
    It would be great if you could create a subject and speak about your restoration project
    Most of the members of the club speaks english (bad english, but english)

    Sans la capote, c'est bien meilleur !
