CGB have emailed back and can supply me with them, i hate asking for bolts and little items from places but i really needed them, and they are sorting them out for me :)


Hey all,

i snapped these two bolts when taking everything apart to do my wheel bearing and brake disks, it looks like it hasnt been touched for 10 years!

does anyone know where i can get replacements?

One is one of the top hub to suspension bolts, and the other is one of the caliper bolts,

If anyone has these, i can paypal striaght away, i hate buses and trains!

thank you

Just collected my R5 today from being resprayed in black 2 pack paint, its a really good job its made it like a brand new car! cant wait to give it another polish up, needs a good clean now.

needs a good clean now! (and i think the rear needs to be a bit lower!)

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Where to get a new front window seal?
« on: 08:00, Fri 01 May 2009 »
hey, ive just had my r5 resprayed, i pick it up this dinner time! just had it all redone in black, it was pretty mint before but 15 year old paint and had stone chips and scratches...

its been repainted in 2K paint, really looking forward to picking it up!!

one question though, does anyone know where i can get a new front window seal? just the outer bit?

squeeze the top radiator pipe too the big one, at the same time it might help move some of the air

feeney that looks cool!! really like those 5 spokes, what im really after, is some alloys which look factory fit, but bigger than the original r5 wheels. I do like yours feeney!

heres the alloys i bought on the weekend theyre 17's, i do like them and had loads of good comments, but its not the look im going for i dont think...

Changed just a couple more things, and ive put some more modern looking wheels on... 17s...

still not sure what i think though! i hope i havent chavved it up too much what do you think??
