Saw a lad driving a White Phase 2 GTT just near the Luton Town Town Football Club today.

I was in my Company Mondeo Barge & gave you a flash of the lights & a thumbs up!  :)

Quite un-surprisingly you looked at me & wondered WHO THE F*** IS THAT?!  :lol:

Your cars / My Raider
« on: 17:35, Sat 10 January 2009 »
Thought it was about time I put a post up detailing a bit about my Raider.

Purchased it in 2003 from a Family who had owned it since new. When I got it It had a few a few knock & scrapes. The rear nearside arch was knackered and the front offside wing had a big dent in it:

So first thing i did was get a Raider arch off & wing off a guy who was breaking one & put them on the car. This then after i had given it a bloody good clean:

You can see that the front bumper is cracked together with the foglights and their's rust bubbles all over the shop!! The wheels were knackered also.

That was fine for me when i bought it & it stayed like that for a few years, then in Summer 2006 I bit the bullet & started to do the work.

I Pulled the engine out first thing:

Then stripped the shell ready for the bodyshop to do their magic (You can see in the second photo all the new bits stuffed into the car for the bodyshop):

While the engine was out i stripped it down to a bare block:

Then at that point started to make it look pretty again by painting the block then re-assembling, cleanin, powdercoating re-plating everything in the engine bay or replacing it if it looked a bit manky:

Finished result:

Whilst I was doing all that the bodyshop were getting busy with their bits:

Untill the day finally arrived when i could pick it up!!  :D  :D  :D

Then the re-assembly of everything back into the car started:

Then i guess it was finished!!

Althought i've still got a few things planned you will understand!!  :wink:  :wink:

Newbies / Big Steve Raider from RTOC
« on: 15:20, Fri 13 June 2008 »

You've probably heard of me if your a member of RTOC, if not allow me to introduce myself as Big Steve (with a) Raider! :D

I've been a member of the RTOC for a number of years now and own a 5 Raider together with a Clio 16v with a VW/Audi 1.8 Turbo Engine (Out of a TT or S3).

Here's a link to a few pictures of my cars: ... =669177592

I usually go to almost all of the Renault Events such as French Car Show, Renault World Series, RTOC National Day etc so Chances are you'll see me there.

I'm not the all knowing one on 5GTT's but having stripped & re-build mine i know a few things about it so will certainly help you where possible!

Steve ;)
