It begins again
« on: 21:20, Sun 05 February 2012 »
Welcome to my project thread of Nicole aka C16 GTT this is my 3rd 5 and my last.
picked her up yesterday from scotland which is 430 miles and 7hrs witch took me till 8.00 this morning to get home because of the snow. i had to stay in a travel lodge on the m40 till this morning cause id being in the car for 11 hours forgot to mention i did the drive with only the passenger wiper working.
she is a tidy 5 with tlc needed to the body work but the engine is sound and goes well. My plan for her is to tidy the body up and go for the infamous 200 bhp figure so will need a full T25 with the spec of the car.
here's the spec

Gas flowed alloy carb top
Omex rev limiter set 6.5k
Ktr sidey
full red silicone hoses
13 row oil cooler
Ramair air filter
Gttunging double cap intercooler
Alloy radiator
Pacet over sized fan

Transmission/chassis
Valeo green box
L&b fly wheel
Gttuning short throw gear stick
Spax fully adjustable coilovers

I like this 5  :mrgreen:

 I remember seeing it for sale a while back, although I dont remember the seller mentioning the rusty bits.

did you get a good deal for it?

ps.... that snow looks pretty intense! For a change we dont have any snow up here - its actually been rather nice for January :D

Done a wheel change to the 5 as the snow has gone now. I need to raise the torsion bar up a bit as the profile on the tyres is to big for the back bumper. I've also got rid of the dv thank good really starts to wear thin after 400 miles lol.
Heres a couple of pics

WTF!? That's nicole?!  :shock:  :shock:  :shock: That can't be?

That car used to look a lot better! What on earth did the last owner do to it?!?

Here's some pictures of when Jesus took it to the Nurburgring in 2007:









And you can't forget the Video's of that trip too including me following Jesus round the 'ring in my car (5 videos) and the famous "Jesus loves a bit of Ska"  :lol:
