Crackig thread you have on the go here bud.... where did you get your rear lights from please mate as i would like to lose my reverse

whats the current siituation on the car

The rear light is from the euro R5s. They have the reverse light/foglight on the opposite sides. So one euro light and one uk light gives you 2 foglights.  8)

EDIT - Unless there tinted......like i've just read above.  :lol:

while hoping to see its future owner being registered here or on RTOC, to see the evolutions, or quite simply for seeing there under other photograph!

I take it the car still has the VNT :mrgreen:  awesome turbo what ever you do never get rid of that turbo very rare and ultimate turbo for the 5 gtt.  Although if you ever get strapped for cash that turbo aslong as in good working condition should get you £400 - £450

cheers for replies peeps, will defo keep you all updated on the project. At the moment i have taken out the front and rear screens to get at all the rust under the seals, The front was a lot worse than the rear as expected, also smoothed the remaining holes in boot where rear wiper was as it only had rubber bungs in it and had started to rott aswell, not bad so cleaned it all up and welded a small plate behind the holes. Door cards have also had a facelift keeping the original renault shape and handle location but now made from mdf and fiberglass as im putting some 3way Focal Components in the front doors and the old cards had seen better days and where not worthy of trimming so new ones had to be handmade. All the rear has been stripped out apart from the seats and i have started on a boot build to hold a P3 Rockford Fosgate but trying to keep weight to a minimum. Well will be back soon loads of plans, got photos will load some soon!! :mrgreen:
