How long is a piece of string?  :?:

I've seen people quote 500 for a quick blowover or 2500+ for a proper job?!

You pays your money & you take your chance with Resprays?! If you want a Concours show car then you've got to be paying more, if you just want the 1 colour to match & aren't too fussed if it's got runs-a-hoy then the lower the

Get some quotes from local bodyshops & then have a look at some of the cars they have in at that moment. You can then get an idea as to what you money would get you?!

shame it's not in the same condition as when Jesus owned it

WTF!? That's nicole?!  :shock:  :shock:  :shock: That can't be?

That car used to look a lot better! What on earth did the last owner do to it?!?

Here's some pictures of when Jesus took it to the Nurburgring in 2007:

And you can't forget the Video's of that trip too including me following Jesus round the 'ring in my car (5 videos) and the famous "Jesus loves a bit of Ska"  :lol:

Renault 5 GT Turbo / Re: original stereo?
« on: 20:18, Thu 19 January 2012 »
The Phliiips DCA682 Was the original fit to the Raider model only.

Regular Phase 2's usually came with Pioneer stereo's

Any Period 80/90's Pioneer would look right  :wink:

What did hammond have to say about it? that big cheesy grin only suggests one thing haha

 :lol: Funny you should say that! When he jumped out of the car after driving it he said to me that it's still a proper quick little car and so much fun!!!

He certainly enjoyed his drive I can tell you, the car was nipping around the Top Gear Test Track  8)

Best thing was though at the end of the day after Richard flew away in his own helecopter (true!) they lead us round for 8 laps of the TG Test Track driving ourselves!!!  :wink:

What's the 1/50 badge all about?

The new Clio 200 Raider model is a limited run of 50 cars and as usual Renault are keeping number 1 for themselves.

I took a picture of the plaque in Number 1 when I had a sit in it and also had the chance to give it a little thrash up & down the road during the day but don't tell anyone...  :lol:

I'm just not a valver guy! Give me that Turbo kick in the back every time!!  :wink:

Will this possibly be on top gear? also steve are you leaning on something in the last picture? looks proper mad  :lol:

No there's no plans for a 5 to be on the Programme as yet. If i was asked for my car to feature though I'd be on it like sonic!!  :lol:  But they needen't think that Clarkson would be smashing it into a brick wall!!

I'd let the Stig do a timed lap though to see what the old girl is capable of in the right hands!!!

That last picture is the Photographer running round taking pictures of Richard. It's not me  :wink:
