My renault 5 Monaco
« on: 02:47, Fri 08 July 2011 »
I think its about time i got some pics up of monaca.
After lots of  problems with my old renault 5 gt turbo's, i was feeling down hearted and i put my my monaco up for sale a couple weeks ago.
well ive decided to keep hold of it for now and under go some work.
The car was really solid underneath i just had a small bit of welding to do on one jacking point.
The interior is in near mint condition, however there was a couple of serfice rust scabs starting to form around the bonnet, tailgate and window surround it wasnt that bad but im fussy so i decided to re-spray the car.
i also polished the origenal wheels and gave them a gold rim. (but to be honist im not sure i like them) il keep looking for a new set.
I have a b18ft engine to drop in, in the near future but for now heres a couple of pics.

I have a full phase 1 gt turbo body kit i was thinking of fitting.
But im a bit unsure so what do you think shall i keep it fairly origenal as it?  is or fit the kit????

Get the kit on there! It'll look much better than those silly side panel things! 8)
