Hi Glenn how's the 5 coming on matey?


Its going fine been busy the last couple of weeks, i brought caravan so not done much to the 5 but i will be picking the engine up next week, and should have it up and running by the end of the month   :D

Caravan :lol: bet the kids will love that matey.

Good to hear things coming on with the 5, if you need a hand one eve let me know I don't mind helping out and I am sure the same can be said for Steve.


yer the kids love it mate went to the cockoo fayre / car / bike and steam show near lewis last week to watch the tractor pulling and other halfs parents show there motor bikes, was a lough just sending entry forms off to the other shows that are coming up so i can enter the GT get in free good beer tent and fun fair and loads of trade stalls  :D i ran out of cash by the second day. i use to use my tent but its so big i need 9 meters square to put it up. Its sleeps 12 and has a massive living room in the middle with four tunnels leading to the bedrooms you could play lazer quest in there  :lol:

im also trying to get my old uno back i restored her some pics.

Glen, kevin Griffin Cars in Horsham 01403 750500 can get Renault parts in direct they get all there parts through baldocks renault in Haywards heath but they charge no extra, I use them all the time and are pretty good and cheaper than the likes of CGB and others for the same parts, they are down near Sussex performance centre behind the Beefeater, give them a bell tell them what you are after and they will sort it out  :D  they are used to getting 5 GTT parts in matey I am in there alot and Steve used to be in there a fair bit aswell. :lol:

So looks like you will be up and running soon then

just a quick up date of what i've been up to. After finding a small amount of rust in the front panel, i decided to strip some panels to see if there was anymore but luckly its quite solid and clean underneath.  I manged to track down a front panel for 35 and a new wing for 30 which is far better then the prices Renault quoted will me ! should have them by Thursday, then fit my engine and then get all the panels fitted, and then get all the bits to finish my car off for  1500 i was going to take it slowly but want it done for August if i can.

Its been a while but towed the 5 out of the barn where its sat since i had all the new front end put on in August. Got it back to mine with a little help from steve and work has started to put the 5 back together, all the metal work has been treated and painted with a plastic type paint to seal the bare meatal to prevent rust, then sprayed in grey primer ready for top coats but the weather has slowed me up with drying times for the paint, i got heaters on and all sorts in the garage on the go.  Here's some pics so far.

Glen, looking good matey, as you say that Tomcat prob won't last long at the boost you will be wanting to run.

In need of a VNT i think but i will use the T25 just to get it up and running to take for M.O.T then park it back in the garage and rebuild the front end, lower arms, bushes, then do the same to the rear.  Got my entry forms for the rallys this year about time a Renault sat proud next to some old classic cars like the ford escort mk1, last one i went to last year there was mk3 escort, capri, vauxhall astra gte mk1 the only renault i saw was a 7 1/2 ton fair lorry lol but i did see a Renault 9 turbo at one of them last year, its good lough you and steve should come to one in your 5's

No probs mate, it was good to pop over & actually be able to work on a car rather than twitch my curtain & look out the window at one  :mrgreen:
Just a few bits left to do now mate, I really wouldn't bother with either turbo's you have now, just try to pick something else up if you can get away with it without Emma noticing  :lol:
FFs whatever you do don't stick that T2 on, it's mashed !  :!:
I'll dig out the stud extractor though incase you do want to fit that manky T25 you have  :P
