1990 Renault 5 GT Turbo Raider - 10/2/10: away to paint :)
« on: 19:58, Thu 08 October 2009 »
OLLIe off the site (and local to me) had his heart set on a well specced white r5 gtt and decided to sell the raider

viewtopic.php?t=4952&highlight=

even though i had a red r5 gtt when i was younger (which broke my heart and vowed never to get another one), he knew from the day he bought it, i loved the car and hinted many of times that if it was for sale i would buy it....so ii swooped in with an offer he couldnt refuse and ended up buying the car

since his thread (link above)/since i got the car, me and my mate spent 2 or so hours stripping it of its sunroof. door cards, interior trims, rear screen quarter windows and few engine bits and bobs...

pics wise theres not much difference, but i have ordered an oem phase2 grille from cgb motorsport and i have been in contact with mike @ gtturbospares.co.uk, getting a shortlist of oem bits and bobs. Im just trying to get the ball rolling as fast as possible......BUT I DO ALSO HAVE TO ATTEND TO MY ONE AND HALF YEAR 2000 SAXO VTS SUPERCHARGED PROJECT, so it will take time.......but hopefully i will have both cars finished for the FCS (french Car Show) next summer.

*************just a reminder this is going to be a 100% oem/standard restoration.......even to the standard exhaust***************

here goes the extra pics, following OLLIe's thread













and my mates garage starting to fill up nicely with hot hatches :P

not much of an update but more of a problem for me :(

i was not a happy bunny yesterday morning, when i went to my mates shed to work on my saxo vts and i realised that some bastards had kicked the drivers door twice, put 2 big swirl scores on the boot, a small dent and a score on passenger quarter panel and a big score message on the bonnet saying "shit" :(......oh and all this was done is a place that has security at the front gates!

its a good thing the car is getting restored and getting a full respray, but the principle of what happens, makes me sick :(

as for progress on the car its sort of stood still, as i have no job at the min and lack the funds to buy certain bits to continue the project.

but soon as i have, the car will be getting finished.

Damn, why can't people just keep their hands to themselves and stay of someone else's belongings... :(  :x

Good luck fixing it!

tiny update....

sump, timing cover, rocker cover and engine mounts and other wee brakcets are all off to powder coating and the car is away to painting (as well as getting all the vandalised bits sorted) :)

other than that the engine has been stripped down and it needs new liners or the current ones honed. other than that it will get re gasketed and built back up standard. i have also came across two places that can get in touch with brand new oem parts....so all i need is a job to get cash to buy them lol

anyways heres pics:



bye bye :D
