Your cars / My renault 5 Monaco
« on: 02:47, Fri 08 July 2011 »
I think its about time i got some pics up of monaca.
After lots of  problems with my old renault 5 gt turbo's, i was feeling down hearted and i put my my monaco up for sale a couple weeks ago.
well ive decided to keep hold of it for now and under go some work.
The car was really solid underneath i just had a small bit of welding to do on one jacking point.
The interior is in near mint condition, however there was a couple of serfice rust scabs starting to form around the bonnet, tailgate and window surround it wasnt that bad but im fussy so i decided to re-spray the car.
i also polished the origenal wheels and gave them a gold rim. (but to be honist im not sure i like them)...so il keep looking for a new set.
I have a b18ft engine to drop in, in the near future but for now heres a couple of pics.






I have a full phase 1 gt turbo body kit i was thinking of fitting.
But im a bit unsure so what do you think shall i keep it fairly origenal as it?  is or fit the kit????

General Chat / Bullsh1tters whilst selling a 5.
« on: 00:13, Mon 20 June 2011 »
I had a phone call the other day whilst selling my 5.
The guy told me he was going to take the car to ejept, but it wait it gets better...
when i asked him "why is he taking it all the way to ejept" he tells me he owns his own DRIFT track there & he wanted the renault 5 to teach beginers how to drift.  :lol:  :lol:
(im sure they will learn a lot in a front wheel drive renault 5 gt turbo)

Honistly i swear on my life its a true story.

Your cars / Bad Buy! But i love it
« on: 19:53, Wed 09 June 2010 »
Ok after searching for a new 5, & getting very thrustrated with the good once selling like hot cakes, or sellers not replying, i rushed into buying this one Big mistake i went over to london last miniute and it was 11:00 pm buy the time i got there very dark & with the car having no tax or mot didnt want to test drive it to far...well anyway no point in crying over spilt milk it is over 20 years old & most are going to need work was just hopping for what i paid for it not as much work as this.
well heres the car >>
maybee not to everyonce taste but i kinda like the modified look  8)
well i got it into work and took it for a propper test drive and noticed the 1st problem it was overheating, luckly this was a easy fix the top of the rad was getting hot but not the bottom, so i just replaced the rad with a known working copper core one & it solved that problem.
so for the next job lets check the shell for rot work begings >>
heres the seals after taking the skirts off not too good>>  
as you can see they need welding i couldve got away with patching up but hey i do like this car and plan to keep it so i thaught id do the job properly and buy 2 new seals >
so i cut the old seals out and started some welding as you can see
as for the floor panel the drivers side looks ok but the passengers side is rotten badly

 the rot doesnt actully look to bad on the pics its much worse up close, well thats as far as ive got for now but il keep updating, ive done a couple of little more fun jobs like i moulded 2 pod gauges to the plastics and fitted a oil cooler replaced the washer jets and fitted some number plate lights ready for the mot
well ill keep this thread updated still loads of work to go lots more welding bit of painting, looks like ive also got to replace the piston rings and will do the headgasket whilst the head is off.
Well dont make my mistake and rush into buying a car at night even if it does look tidy from the outside, kinda wish i sat in london's bad traffic now, still it will be worth it in the end  :) :lol:  :lol:
