Title: My 1991 Raider
Post by: DeanGT5 on 19:46, Tue 05 July 2011
Brought a Raider (I wanted just the turbo but ended up buying the whole car) It had a cracked liner so was sold as a non runner.

The plan is to fit the old engine from my five, clean it up and sell it.
Old engine removed

Just need to fit 1 more hose (when it turns up), exhaust, oil and water and charge the battery then see if she runs

 Will be much better with the new engine in.

I was wondering though, is it a true raider or a "J" reg GTT painted raider blue?

Post by: DeanGT5 on 08:21, Thu 07 July 2011
The paint code is 449 sport bleu, but the engine bay came out a little light as its a pearl . I think it should be sprayed over black.

Ben.... It will be up for sale soon ;-)

Although the raider looks ok in the pics, the paintwork is a bit flat and orange peely. When I get a few spare hours im going to wet flat the whole car and machine polish it back to a nce level finish,

Heres a small area on the bonnet - Look at the sharpness of the reflection  :wink:

Its prob the few that were left over from when the finished making the 5 and few hadn't been registered.
Thats all the J-plate 5's are, left over from H-reg period which hadn't been sold or registered.

I had a white J-reg years ago and this is 3rd J-reg Raider i've seen.

Great job! Flatting the car down is such a scary idea, haha.
What polishes/pads did you use?
Title: Re: My 1991 Raider
Post by: DeanGT5 on 12:29, Fri 15 July 2011
I use 1500 grit to flat then 3m fast cut plus and a farecla compound mop to polish up. Give it a wash then use 3m finishing glaze with a soft mop then a wax or sealant

I have no idea what you just posted. All I read was you make it shiny

Hi mate,

How much are you selling it for? - I was trying to PM you but can't figure it out, I might not have permission as I'm newly registered

Cheers
