scrap yards WIN!

black one is a gt turbo engine complete and 100% original, interior had been pillaged and its been moved about loads so is generally good for nothing  :(

above is a m reg campus absoutly mint or was until they put the forklift through it to put on top of the gtt, shell was 100% mint would of been ideal for a reshell and only

on the clock, no doubt garaged from new by one dithering old women who is now banned from driving due to her eyesight or something

scavanged bonnet and grill plus indicators and now have a standard ph2 front bumper, will be pushing the intercooler in over so it looks more original

what was left of my front bumper after a "freind" took it for a spin hence descision to make it look a bit more original

got a carpet from the campus as mine was a state, after removing old one it revealed some tin worm in drivers side foot well, all sorted now tho and carpet is in, no pics tho  :lol:

other bits salvaged from the campus

original mats
original parcel shelf
various plastics
two boot struts as mine had over spray on
original boot carpet

everything was like new and so easy to get off and immaculate, there were mats covering the genuine mats it was that well looked after lol

will get some pics when snow goes

hi is the relay 6 prong? tried one from a scrappy but no joy, put a 12v+ straight to pump tho and it runs fine???? rules out fuel pump but will try putting the wiring in the relay as you suggested as i may have another duff relay. if that doesnt work what would you suggest from there? cheers

Renault 5 GT Turbo / 5 turbo fueling probs
« on: 20:22, Fri 27 November 2009 »
hi peeps my 5 turbo wont start, theres a good spark but no fuel getting to the carb, also noticed i cant hear the fuel pump prime when ignition is switched on. whats the best way to test the pump and what else could it be, heard fuel pump relays can be faulty? where is this located and can it be tested? cheers

well had a weekend at the 5 replacing various bits have replaced with new

wheel bearings to rear

new discs and pads front and back

new steering rack

new trackrod ends

new brake servo (genuine bendix)

new battery

also left my industrial dehumidifier in for a few days took a few litres out of it  :o  so its a bit dryer inside now also cleaned interior as it had gone mouldy from been sat out in the damp for 3 months with no use, have come across a clean non turbo model and am off to scavange a few interior bits off it tomorrow such as carpet and plastics as mine are pretty scabby and clips are broken on most things, also getting the bonnet and grill which are very good condition and standard as i think i will put it too a more original state, now need a front bumper aswell due to my freind smashing it on a rather large drain cover while testing brakes but i think i will use the oppertunity to set the intercooler further in so i dont need to cut the bumper for it to fit and give a more standard sleeper look. also in need of one rear caliper, i did buy two which had been "reconditioned" but were actually completely shagged when they arrived good old ebay!!

to do now is


replace rear caliper

tidy interior with the bits i salvage

get the body work sorted


one day il get it back on the road
