Morning - my Tungsten Grey R5!
« on: 09:38, Sat 14 February 2009 »
Well i have sort of done things backwards - been all over the forum asking questions and advertising for wanted items but neglected to come in here and introduce myself!!!!

I recently bought this 1989 Tungsten Grey R5 having always wanted one when i was younger. THis particular car came up at (what i think!) was good money and seemed an opportunity not to be missed.

Its done 83 odd thousand miles and is generally very tidy, it has a bit of the usual rust around the windscreen however my intention is to take the screen out at some point remove the rust respray and then refit screen with nice new rubbers.

Other than that it wouldn't seem like there is any major work, my desire was always to own a standard example of this car so the seats are coming out and the rear lights coming off too.

Engine is standard other than a filter and DV and to be honest i think it will probably stay this way but we will see.

Loads of great info on here so i am sure i will be in and out quite a bit.

Here's some pics hope you like -
