Campus Turbo...
« on: 00:51, Sun 06 February 2011 »
Hey,

got this campus off my mate for 100 with 50k on clock and fsh, going to be fitting gt lump into it followed by changing bodystyling on exterior and interior.... got some good plans up sleeve too

here are a few pics of when i brought her ( plastics not fitted, were inside of car) ...













had these few items arrive in todays post, which was handy






managed to fit the glovebox cover today along with strip the rear and this how she looks at end of play today....



will try to keep posts and updates frequent, wish weather would clear up tho

Peace Out

not to sure if im going to keep the sleeper look tbh, i cant decide at the moment

in the renualt 5 gt turbo section below there is a poll i run few weeks ago with some smooth campus bumpers vs gt kit

leaving in a bit to make journey up country to pick engine and gearbox up off bye_c_ya_... that is what will kick start the project

pictures will follow once im home

Yeah I can't really grumble at the bodywork especially for the year, the only real bit wear abd tear is passenger front wing but I am getting GT wings as will need then for aches to fit,

Hopefully progress report report will follow soon, hoping to swap over engines next weekend

yeah collected it yesterday from a user on here, just trying to gain my bearings with r5 engine becuase obvs that is literaly only the engine nad nothing else, got starter motor to fit to it aswell...

will a campus alternator work or do i need 5 gt one?

im going to be building it over the year the whole car but im basically keeping it standard for now, standard power for few months of me driving it to get use to feel of car then will start to upgrade..... want to get the engine ready drop it in then im going to do all bodywork in mean time and wont get driven until completly finished

Campus alternator should work.

I think it might be slightly lower rated?
