hi guys just bought project that needs lots of work :-)
« on: 19:28, Wed 19 October 2011 »
Hi guys just bought a r 5 that im saveing from an early grave. About the car its been stood for 16 years its a 1 owner from new me being the second. I have orginal bill of sale from renault and some other booklets and things. I havent got any reciepts or service history. But the car is pretty much orginal except for some fan wiring and alarm. I think the car had some abuse in its life. It has had a badly fitted o/s quarter that has a little damage and a fair amount of rust along the sill. And the n/s quarter has had a whack and needs to be replaced. Any advise where I could get quarter panels from would be great. The doors are fairly mint with a tiny amount of rust on the drivers side. The tailgate has no rust what so ever. The engine that is in the car is seized I think maybe the head gasket blew and left the bores soaked in water for the last 16 years. So I am rebuilding my spare engine to go back in. The cas itself is solid just needs some tlc. Im a mechanic myself. And my garage also has a fully equipped body shop so fingers crossed it will all plan out for me. And il get some pics up as soon as I can

Good luck with the project, sounds like a fair bit of work.
Put a wanted ad up in the sales section & Mike AKA GT turbo spares will be able to help with alot of the parts.
