here are a few pics of  my donor car

(http://i366.photobucket.com/albums/oo103/jonnyshaw49/PICT0051.jpg)

(http://i366.photobucket.com/albums/oo103/jonnyshaw49/PICT0053.jpg)

(http://i366.photobucket.com/albums/oo103/jonnyshaw49/PICT0052.jpg)

door cards filled and primed ready for gloss black paint

(http://i366.photobucket.com/albums/oo103/jonnyshaw49/PICT0056.jpg)

my next plans are lift up the back end, fit a new standard front slam panel bumper and grill. new back bumper, tidy up the engine bay and get the auto sol out lol. new t2/t25 turbo. mint all the body work and fit my new door cards.

I have now moved on with my project and over the last few weeks been spending the cash.  The car is currently in the bodyshop having a full respray in the original black paint after being to the panel beaters where i had new inner and outer sills new bumper fixing points front and rear, new slam panel, all new fixing points on front and rear wings for arches.  I have bought all new panels, front and rear bumpers, ront and rear arches, new sideskirts and new bonnet and all new fixing clips and rubbers.  I have also had the tacky petrol cap removed from the boot and put back in the original place on the rear quarter.  I have bought all new lights including fogs and indicators.  I have also bought a few new parts from gt tuning, the dump valve, spider valve, in car boost valve.  I have spent £4000 lol. but its all worth it restoring one of these gt turbos.  here are a few pics of the project.

New alloys

Post by: jonnyshaw49 on 21:53, Fri 15 January 2010
they are rh classics mate only 25 sets made originally vw fitment but slightly  altered to fit, i love the wheels only downside can get bigger than standard discs so had to whip the 285s off, but now running on tarox discs and ferodo pads.i think the alloys were originally marky marks on here but i bought them off a guy in mirfield.

Hello mate, I can see that you have a Nürburgring sticker on your tailgate? Did you ever drive on the Nordschleife?? I drove there 3 years ago. One of the best experiences of my life :D

They just lift out.

I undo the conrod then pull the whole piston and liner out, i find it easier to seperate that way. If the rings are quite tight on the liner i have trouble 'grabbing' the lip of the liner to pull it free with my sausage fingers.

seriously!!!?? thats soo simple! i fucking love these cars the more i hear about em. do you have to press them in using a hydraulic press? or is it simply push em in with your hand??
Title: Re: Pics of my R5 - UPDATED 15/01/2010 pic heavy!!
Post by: Ash-Lee on 23:32, Sun 07 February 2010
They just drop in, theres a small seal between the liner and block which are about £5 if that for all 4.

 Hi mate,   just thought you might like to know about the wheels...  I bought those from Germany and had them sent over here a few years ago,  they were orginally black spokes with the polished dish... looking good on yours  8)

 Keep up the good work mate.. looking very nice  8)

Colne, Lancs? Ah....my home town in Nelson, Lancs, all my life before I moved to Leeds!

I used to run my own business (The WORX Bodyshop) and specialise in buy/sell and breaking r5gtts as well run bodyshop repairs/respraying.

Don't suppose have met you around there eh? Great looking car you got!

hi yes colne lancashire mate! think ive heard of your buisness not dealt with you  myself though! did you drive a renault 5 gt around here? i might remember it. i only know of 2 round here other than mine and know the people that own them. my sills were bought from cgb motorsport cant remember how much they were not so dear but the welding cost me 750 as i had inner and outer sills done and all four bumper points and when i bought the car someone had smoothed the petrol cap over and put it in the boot so i had to have it cut back out. i asked about when i wanted my sills welding and a few people said 150 a side was average price for labour. i scrapped the other shell as it was absolutely rotten around the back windows and sills had gone

I'm hijacking this thread! ha ha!

Now then, I notice to last few posts are from folk local to me(north west).  any chance you will drive to me and let me see where all the fiddly brackets, bits and pieces from the engine bay go??  I will pay fuel/beer tokens but seeing as i'm restoring a 5, I have very little money to pay for time!  I'm in Rochdale, OL11 area.

Thanks,

Jack
