Ok so been out there again this afternoon cleaning stripping rebuilding etc. i have removed both the rear windows and cleaned all the rubber seals and scraped the green build up out from the creases.

The plastic trims which run around the edge of the roof have both been off and cleaned along with the gutter - proper green and gunked up with years of sludge.

Me passenger seat is out ready for the originals tomorrow eve! :lol: very excited about this.

Also fitted this MASSIVE filter -



And here is a better pic of the engine bay as it is at the moment -



More updates coming soon.....

Another update for the 5 -

This morning i removed the grey carpet and replaced it with the red which i think has brightened up the interior massively!



The standard seats have now been fitted -



I have fitted the boot carpet i managed to get from CGB -



Parcel shelf is in -



And finally nice Alpine headunit slotted in the console -



So all in all a productive morning, still trying to return as much to standard as possible. Got a good clean inside and out lined up for Thurs afternoon so fingers crossed for some good weather.

Once its had a good clean and polish will upload some more pics. I know not that many people will be interested in this thread because you all know what a standard 5 looks like but i figured its good to show the changes and progress to date.

Looking nice now !! Dont put it in Renault for a service.. They aint got a clue about these cars unless they have an old timer who worked for them when the GTT was out.. Best of servicing it yourself or one of the well known GTT tuners..
