General Chat / Red Hot Restoration
« on: 11:41, Tue 10 May 2011 »
hi guys and gals.

ive been restoring VW's for the last 3 years for a company that recently made me redundant :(
so rather than go and work for another idiot i thought id try and work for myself  :D
so thats why im here today to offer you guys my services. i am experiance and qualified in car body repair  :D

these prices will just be an estimate as every car is different and everybodys wishes are different.  Please bare in mind that i may not be able to get panels for R5s anymore depending on what it is.

basic hourly rate for club members 25 an hour = 200 for an 8 hour day.

150 per panel plus the panel so if you wanted a rear arch done this is what it would cost to get the arch welded on, shaped up and the rear quater painted, if your inner arch needs repairing aswell then this will cost extra.

if you are interested in having your complete car done, i.e both sills and rear arches welded on, shaped up and the outside of the car painted this will be 2500 for metalic paint and 2000 for non metalic paint, both prices plus paint. if you are interested in having a special paint effect such as metal flake, flip paint or pearlesent paint then this will be more as will inner arch repairs, engine bay painting etc.

we can also offer a complete restoration service, please contact if seriously interested for prices.

also price can change depending on if interior is still in the car and if it is required to come out. if you want anything sand blasted or for a bare metal paint job.

best to contact with details and pictures if your not close enough to pop by.

if there is anything you think i have missed off or any questions you would like to ask me please feel free, id be more than happy to try and help you  :D

thanks peeps

Renault 5 GT Turbo / wheel offset
« on: 15:47, Wed 17 October 2007 »
hi guys & gals

hope everyone is ok!!

ive got plans for one of my rennys, ive got a big wide body kit to put on it very simlar to the dimma kit, ive got to get some new wheels and im not sure what offset would be best.  i was going to buy some big wide wheels mayb like 8-9 wide but then remembered il probley have the problem that they will scrape on the inside of the arch at the back of the wheel as well as probley the top of the arch, i then started thing about offset and that if i get a smaller offset the wheels will sit to the edge of the body kit and hopefully not scrape on the back but ive got no idea on how to measure what offset i will need without having a wheel there to measure, are you with me lol?

im hoping to get some rims with a dish/lip on them which i believe will affect the offset too??

can anyone help me out please? im stuck  :shock:

 :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

Renault 5 GT Turbo / speedo clock
« on: 15:09, Wed 30 May 2007 »
hi    :D

can anyone please tell me what revs their renny is doing at 30mph and again at 70mph?

my speedo hasnt been working to great for quite a while, but the other day when i took the dash to bits and got the clocks out and actually took the speedo right out, i found a little screw looking like thing just on the side of the speedo, ive turned it round about half a turn and the speedo is reading better than it was, but since i got so used to driving with one that dont work right, i have no idea what 30mph or 70mph feels like lol, so not sure if its reading right or not. been trying to get someone to come out for a hack so i could follow them to find out if its correct or not but no one has been about.

be really greatfull of a little point in the right direction.
