I noticed you've painted the inside of your headlights? Subtle, but different finish. I like it.

Was it hard? I have a trillion spare sets of headlights, so I may give it a go. How did you seperate them then bond them back together?

Looks bloody gorgeous mate! Blue is the best colour for 5's afterall  :wink:

Not too keen on the chequered wing mirrors and rear view mirror, although the wheels and roof look good!

Ready for an MOT now! Not 100% finished, as can be seen, but just a few finishing touches and she's done.

Going to book it in for an MOT this Saturday. Insured on it already, so if it passes, I'll get some tax, and I'll be out in this GT Turbo for the first time in 2 years!


How it looked Saturday morning

How it looked Saturday evening (seats are quite loud, and probably not to everyones liking)

How it looks this evening!

Really happy with it! :)

More work done:

Dash out, because of a leaking heater matrix :(

More rot

Mid fix

Welding done

After doing all the welding, it was all painted / undersealed, and I got to putting the bodykit back on!

The marks on the side skirts that you can see are just from the paper they were stored in. They had been left outside, and the paper had stuck and dried to the skirts - it'll wash off :)

Looks like a car again :D

It's sitting very high at the moment, but uprated suspension to come, when funds allow!

Bit of an update - been a while!

Thought I'd add some pictures of her in her current state.

Mouldy steering wheel  It had a leak, which is sorted now.

Some rust around the drivers side rear arch. Luckily it is where the plastic arch sits, so repair work will be covered. That will obviously be done soon! Just waiting on my dad to buy a new mig welder.

Wired up my gauges as well, but used a taillight connector block to make it neater / easily removable.

Did a few other bits and bobs as well, general sorting out electrics, fixing some leaky bleed nipples on the coolant hoses, fitted the exhaust, fitted the air filter, swapped back to standard headlights (need to mess about with my quads), etc.

Gonna buy some paint this Friday, and sort out that rusty arch / some rust on the sills, then I can put the rest of the bodykit on.

MOT time soon :D

It's just excess petrol igniting in the exhaust i would of thought.

That's what it is.. in the exhaust and the turbo - which causes damage to the turbo. I would have thought you'd bollock up your exhaust silencer too.

Very nice 8) I'm liking those wheels.
Did you find you had to chop the top rad hose a bit to get it to fit? Mine fouled the dizzy badly and was about 2 inches too long on either end.

It's not too bad tbh.. I've not properly fitted it yet though, as I'm still waiting for a water pump gasket from Renault, so my waterpump is only mock fitted for now.

The boost hoses though.. they were well too small in diameter! Was a right pain in the arse to get them to fit especially on the carb lobster!

im also liking those wheels. this is going to be awesome when done. keeping the engine relitively std?

Pretty much.. well, won't be doing any internal work, but I've got a T25, and LC-1 kit to fit, so I will be increasing the boost, then adding shiny bits. Probably go for about 18psi, with good suspension / tyres / roll cage.. Should be good fun on trackdays :)
