Looks quite good from the piccys, make sure it's not rotten underneath if it's been sat on that grass for a while ;)

keepin body work pretty much standard apart from removal of front and rear bumper strips and getting rid of hole for exhaust just to give it that clean look,sort out bonnet gonna change that scoop ive already ditched the bonnet hinges for pins for easy access to work on the engine bay so complete bonnet will lift off, as i said earlier 8 point roll cage,keepin all the interior ,standard seats etc but will have harnesses with front seats wanted to give it that standard look mixed with the race look,keepin to standard colour of good old renault black,im not one for shopping trolley spoilers or massive body kits you seem to lose that classic shape of the 5

 Sounds like u'r 5 is in good hands!!  Great to see one lovingly restored....  black looks stunning when its mint.  Hope you can keep this thread updated as you get each bit done...  will make a great read! (and a cool pic diary).

 Keep up the good work..   :wink:

Sounds like a good deal!   :lol:

I like theb wheels as well..  I have 15's and Speedline 13's..    but the 15's always seem to look just slightly too small to me... and 16's always look spot on (as I am really fussy with things looking right)  so good choice .... 17's are too big and chav so 16's would be my choice as well.

I have seen these on another 5 before..  but may need some nice 4 pots  behind them to really set them off...  :wink:

Keep up the good work  8)

I have that pgti mag and I know the car you mentioned..  that guy has done everything to it from top to toe! Without sounding like I'm trying to be nice..lol..  when I 1st saw these wheels on a Grey 5 (owned by a guy called Biggs) they were my fave wheel.. if I find a pic I'll send u a PM of it.

Yes... I have had my latest (Tungsten) 5GTT for 3 years.. and its just part on me... I dont think I could ever bring myself to part with it.

But by the sounds of yours... the spec and the ideas will be well worth all the effort...  u sound as mad as me!

Keep us posted mate..  8)
