Episode four (26.6.2007.):

There we go... the "kid" is off to a bodyshop... :mrgreen:

But, before we did that, we performed a facial peeling... so to speak... :lol:





I have no idea why people looked at me in awe as I drove to the bodyshop... :lol:  perhaps because the windshield was attached to the car's body with "ducktape" in 4 or 5 place, and I had no rear window... perhaps... :roll:  :mrgreen:

Episode seven (10.07.2007.):

Picked it up today... finally!!  :D

Here are the pics...











I returned it to the "window man" to put a new windscreen on, and put the old rear window back on...

Tomorrow it will be at the bodyshop again to protect hidden and tricky bits with wax...

Bodykit will also be finished tomorrow...

Episode eight (11.7.2007.):

The bodykit is also done!  :D

It was raining, so we had to wrap it in paper and nylon... it's now waiting for the waxing to be done (I'll pick the car up tomorrow morning) and for the necessary parts to arrive to the local Renault dealer's (clips, bolts etc...)...









A small piece of the bodykit, just to get the picture of how well it all looks... I'm really pleased...

2 RickGTT - thanks!  :wink:

No, I'm not... I'm putting everything back, I just wanted to strip it so the people at the bodyshop can access everything for potential repairs, and to get everything cleaned... :wink:

Really good pictures and making me think I should do the same in a few years time.

Looking at the bodykit piece I would say that the final put together finished car will look better than new.

Keep up the good work!

Later in the day, I went to my local Renault's service station to put the bumpers and some other minor plastic bits and pieces back on...
Until I get the side decals, wing panels and plastic sills will not be back on...







Don't pay attention to the fact that the plastic bit on the boot lid is f*ucked up where the "Renault 5 GT Turbo" sign was, a new sign will arrive in a few days time... :wink:

Thanx mate... :wink:

I've been busy with little bits and pieces these days...

After playing with the needle  :D and "restyling" the gear shifter leather cover (you'll see that later) it was about time to do something useful

As the entire interior was stripped (and cleaned :mrgreen:) I came across the first problem...



I managed to handle the wires somehow and sort them into groups (windows, automatic window modules, alarm, central locking, CD-radio...)...



Then came the carpet, central console (with "redesigned" gear shift look  :lol: ), and now it looks like this...



After detailed consultations with Warleydaddy (cheers mate  :wink: ), the car is going back to the painter's (which is actually an Audi/Porsche dealership) to flat the paint as "orange peel" effect can be seen on it...
Then I'll take the seats to be dry-cleaned (just like the carpet) and I can start assembling the interior... :D
