R5GTTRaider project
« on: 01:50, Sat 06 June 2009 »
been on here a while now, and thought id put up some pictures of what ive got done,
applogise for all the pics!

this is how i got the car, not running with a burnt out wiring loom







all caused by this wire routed round the intercooler


after 2 weeks of searching for the looms i came across rtoc, and got the dash loom and o/s h/l loom

dash going back in




dash mostly back in, but had been ripped apart by previous owner, most clips are broke, so new dash will be next after body work


engine bay after routing some wires better


and unfortantly has bad body work, but 99% rust free,so happy with that


started sorting out the ornge peel on the drivers door




and after few weeks of polishing etc, and brightening up paint work
not there yet but will be (if weather holds up spaying the bonnet and front wing, and finnishing off the door





more to come when i sort out the bonnet and wing

think final goal will be to have a respray, but for now id like to make it look more presentable!
