some advise please
« on: 23:45, Wed 14 September 2011 »
Hi there, I have recently bought a phase 2 gt turbo
It is completely standard and even has the original radio in it, no dump valve or shiny gear knob!
Its quite rusty however and has an un-original sunroof which needs to go as someone has spotwelded though the roof itself.

The question is, is the main body the same as basic renault 5 (campus etc)?
if so I am looking to cut the roof off completley and replace it with another.
I also need to replace the tailgate and a few seals etc

Any advise would be appreciated  :o

Hi Jack. Welcome to the site.

The shells are pretty much the same on the GTT as the Campus and other models. Things like the boot and roof skin are exactly the same.
The doors on a Campus usually have holes to fix the plastic trims, and the rear arch line isn't cut as high but they can still be used with a little work  :D

Thats what I wanted to hear!
I will probably look for a scrap standard 5 then and strip the roof etc, unless I come across a gtt scrap.
I assume the roof hasn't got extra strenthening on the gtt and using a standard one will be fine?
Cheers  :)

Well there is always that option, although it isnt the most rotten thing. I will get some photos up of it soon
