Could we build our own Renault?

Hi guys...

I was reading a topic from Azurael earlier about his troubles emptying his radiator.

I had the thought of "Why can't they make something easier to maintain?"

It seems silly doesn't it. You design a car knowing people will want to flush things and then make the radiator inaccessible and thus hard to flush! Likewise electrical wiring - How many of us really know what every single wire is for in our cars? - Labels would be very useful wouldn't they.

So, I got thinking. Could we not build or at least design our own "Super" Renault? By this I mean using a Renault car, and extensively reworking it with reliable parts, gadgets and simplicities from other cars.

Wouldn't it be great to roll our very own Renault up the drive of Renaults production plants in France and show them a proper easy to maintain car?

I know the chances of us ever pulling something like this off are low but just imagine if we ever did - It would be great wouldn't it?! - Renault fans redesign Renaults "less pleasant characteristics" with their own improvements.

Where would you start?

Being a saffy driver I'd obviously prefer to stick a volvo engine in the SupeR. All wiring would be clearly labelled and pipes/hoses would be colour coded dependent on their purpose.

Thoughts and comments?
