and also they didnt treat under the rubber seal were they cut it out leaving exposed metal hence possibly the reason why the sun roof models tend to rust there

well spent a bit of time with the 5 recently bought a few goodies



rad flush

oil cooler plus oil and filter

big brake conversion to replace



1.1 barkes by the looks!!  :shock:

got the oil cooler on



noticed rad was moving about all over

before


after


not pretty but keep it in one place

loved this


tape over terminal to stop it arking on wing, winner



bit tidier, horn relocated aswell instead of been ziptied to srtut brace!



wiring prob not previous owners strong point!





answer rip it out


horn was horrendous one of those things ment to sound like a vintage car plus stuffed behind header tank and wired well



new jobby


didnt like the front grill but seeing as doing this budget spec made the old one do


middle section and mesh removed, sides filled


looks better although not the best pic, sprayed curtesy of mr halfords best rattle can

wont be winning a race against this



500+ evo 5 rs  8)

tis all for now, although have replaced wheel bearing, bottom arm and needs two rear calipers, servo and various other bits, out of mot now aswell. need to get on

well had a weekend at the 5 replacing various bits have replaced with new

wheel bearings to rear

new discs and pads front and back

new steering rack

new trackrod ends

new brake servo (genuine bendix)

new battery

also left my industrial dehumidifier in for a few days took a few litres out of it  :o  so its a bit dryer inside now also cleaned interior as it had gone mouldy from been sat out in the damp for 3 months with no use, have come across a clean non turbo model and am off to scavange a few interior bits off it tomorrow such as carpet and plastics as mine are pretty scabby and clips are broken on most things, also getting the bonnet and grill which are very good condition and standard as i think i will put it too a more original state, now need a front bumper aswell due to my freind smashing it on a rather large drain cover while testing brakes but i think i will use the oppertunity to set the intercooler further in so i dont need to cut the bumper for it to fit and give a more standard sleeper look. also in need of one rear caliper, i did buy two which had been "reconditioned" but were actually completely shagged when they arrived good old ebay!!

to do now is

tracking

replace rear caliper

tidy interior with the bits i salvage

get the body work sorted

MOT!!!

one day il get it back on the road

scrap yards WIN!



black one is a gt turbo engine complete and 100% original, interior had been pillaged and its been moved about loads so is generally good for nothing  :(

above is a m reg campus absoutly mint or was until they put the forklift through it to put on top of the gtt, shell was 100% mint would of been ideal for a reshell and only



on the clock, no doubt garaged from new by one dithering old women who is now banned from driving due to her eyesight or something



scavanged bonnet and grill plus indicators and now have a standard ph2 front bumper, will be pushing the intercooler in over so it looks more original


what was left of my front bumper after a "freind" took it for a spin hence descision to make it look a bit more original





got a carpet from the campus as mine was a state, after removing old one it revealed some tin worm in drivers side foot well, all sorted now tho and carpet is in, no pics tho  :lol:

other bits salvaged from the campus

original mats
original parcel shelf
various plastics
two boot struts as mine had over spray on
original boot carpet

everything was like new and so easy to get off and immaculate, there were mats covering the genuine mats it was that well looked after lol

will get some pics when snow goes

Good find.

I managed to salvage all the boot trim, including the arch covers for something daft like 5. Nearly walked off with the engine for something crazy like 20. You can use the bottom end with little modification and there more then likely to not have been driven as hard.

no lack of money doesnt help plus its under a foot of snow atm  :lol:  started to cut out to get the intercooler behind the bumper but not been able to do anything for a few weeks, bought a few new suspension bits off cgb but waiting for them to come, once front bumpers on will try its luck with mot and get the spraying done once its sorted, also need two front seats as its only got campus ones in atm so will try to find a pair of buckets for it. also plan to get it off the ground and get it cleaned off underneath and waxoyld
