heres a few more upto date photos before i took it into carrera bodyworks on monday to get the silver bonnet painted and also a ph2 spoiler.

(the oridgenal bonnet is fitted in the photos)














next plans are to get a new exhaust sorted out cause its far too low to have the side exit as it hits on everything and finish the phase 2 front bumper cause i hate this tarmac one!!

on satuarday i sorted out my indicator and sidelight wiring on  the front and relocated my side lights to the indicators.

when i had the indicator out i noticed a rust hole on the front panel, then noticed that my bumper was hanging off on the passenger side.
turns out that where my wing, inner wing and front panel all meets has rotted away. looks like i need to find another r5 campus to cut the front end off to repair mine. just as things were getting better also!!

quick update,

- complete front end and n/s inner arch have been ordered from renault
- front bumper has been painted
- front bumper has now been fitted (minus the n/s mount as thats missing)
- custom oil catch tank and header tank have arrived
- fitted new black rocker cover

heres the tanks :





front bumper in primer with brake ducts temp fitted :





and the snow pic lol





will get some better photos in the day light

next jobs are to get another standard grill and paint it as mine is broken in many places, make some scuttle covers, patch up the hole in the sill, fit the brake ducts propperly, cut off the rusty front end and weld on the new one, custom exhaust manifold, new front indicators, fit samco heater matrix pipes when ever they arrive, yellow breather hose kit

i think thats about it for now lol
