Post by: kaner.R5 on 00:45, Tue 27 January 2009
hello all from across the pool :D :D

Me and few mates are rebuilding a Ren 5 Turbo :) ive some knowledge of them but not alot lol the car has around 20k on engine lol , as engine is reconditioned !

here are some pics :D :D hope you enjoy all C&C welcome.

we started today and stripped parts of the car off to see if there was obvious rust and so on , found bottom of the car to be bad , rubbed the bottom of the car down and sealed it , then had the bottom of the car sprayed .

welcome m8, looks like a good little project  :lol:

do you know if the engine has any work done to it (i.e. carb mods,better turbo,cam,pistons/liners,head work/ported n polished.) :lol:

since it looks like you have a decent place to work on the car take all the bodykit off to see if there is any rust as they usually get rusty over the years where the water gets trapped

and enjoy it m8y :lol:  :wink:
