My Renault 14 TS was purchased new by my Father in March 1981. I am sorry I donot speak French and have been using Google translate.
Below is a photo of the car before any restoration work was carried out around 30 months ago.





After removing the wings.





The boot floor and floorpan were in excellent condition even though the car has been in Scotland since new.




Corrosion on drivers door, this was the worst door by far.



An original wheel which had not been painted since new.




Corrosion around rear wheel arch, again totally original.



Inner wing cleaned up in preparation for welding.








Inner wings repaired





Nearside rear arch repaired.



Engine bay minus engine.





New genuine Renault wings painted.



Engine before cleaning and fitting of some new genuine Renault parts.




Freshly painted engine bay and door checks.



Engine after degreasing.



Front struts painted.



Cleaner engine fitted with new genuine Renault alternator and starter.





The car ready for painting, the bonnet was a new genuine Renault part which I managed to source.




Newly painted.



The refit begins.

The 14 was not rare in the UK in the 70's or 80's, but sadly now there must only be around 5 left. They were very prone to corrosion in the UK, particularly in Scotland due to the climate.

I have trying to find a new genuine Renault 14 TS front grill for around 4 years. Look what I found tonight on ebay.co.uk., for under £5 plus postage.

It's AMAZING !! Shocked
sco 14 you make a really good restauration on your's father R14.

It's so good to see a R14 outside France in a so good condition.
Many thanks "sco 14" and "sergio" for your interest in this car !!

Because you must know in France, there's not so much peoples who lile it.
Because she's got a bad publication of her in France in 1977, the publicitation
say "the Renault 14 is like a peare", for her shave, but the peoples thing at used,
if they boat one they 'll be a Pear (as well).
So like that, some of R14 as got a big problème with the rust, some has got some problems
with there engen xho like to drike a little bit to mush oil, some's got problems to start her engine the morning, some of them take water inside when it was rainning...
And at list the Renault's garages doesn't like her engine, because it wasn't a Renault Engine,
like the others ones of the Renault philosophie.
Renault make an accord with Peugeot at the end of the 60ies for built this motor, that Peugeot put inside her 104 en 1972, but Peugeot brake her accords with Renault in 1974 and go to see Citroen.
So Renault has got this engine on her arms, and must put it in side a car, and so it was the R14.
And the R14 was in a cathegory of cars (the 7cv) wher there is lot of.
And at end, the body of the R14 was in 1976 (for the first ones) may be to new for a car.
