Title: My Restored Raider
Post by: puggingalong on 00:11, Tue 15 July 2008
Guys

I have restored this car to as good a condition as I could in the time so far as bought it in November 2007. Heres pics of how it is looking now:

You even get a glimpse of my 205 1.9 Cti along side my R5 Raider

I did strip it and have a bare metal respray and built it back up as maticulously as I could so a typical shot of what it was like:

That looks beautiful, looks standard on the outside apart from the exhaust tailpipe, stealthy!
Lovely looking car, excellent work in that amount of time!

Thanks for the positive comments guys!. Its great to know others out there also share the passion for these fun cars!.

I do keep my cars garaged hence the deep red on my 205 which is a rare scarlet red instead of the usual cherry red that most of them are plus its all original and not been resprayed.

I have to say I am Gt Turbo smitten at mo as find it is such a rewarding car to drive. In a perfect world I would love to have a standard factory example and a modded one also but more cars mean more money and maintenance needed!.
