Hey dudes, just happen to stumble upon this site and thought it was well worth registering with.

I'm fairly new to RTOC, but some peeps here may have seen me posting over there.

Currently rebuilding my engine and bringing the old girl back to life.

Long live the 5.

Hi mate, here's some more pics.....





I've got a new KTR Kombat rear bumper to on with the full twin exit exhaust system to match.

Current engine spec:

KTR - Level 3 gas flowed head.
Uprated head gasket set and bolts.
285 cam.
4 Paddle Clutch.
Lightened Flywheel.
KTR FMIC,
Group A carb.
Competition dump valve.
Induction kit.
In-car boost controller.
Hi output starter motor.
Samco hoses.
GT2560R Turbo with 60trim comp wheel and .64 back end.


Engine is current stripped down ready to fit forged pistons:




Once the engine is up together and fitted, I'll focus on the bodywork..... there's a bit of surface rust coming through so I think I'll repair those areas myself, then wrap the whole car in vinyl (as I won't have the money for full respray).

Vinyl work is something I do at work so it'll be a case of choosing the colour then wrapping it. It'll do until the funds are there to get a repray.

:)

Yeah, I actually decided to go with the smooth boot look. Impractical plastic crap had to go. :D

Each to their own I suppose. :)

Fantastic colour car bet it looks awesome in the sun light, shame it had to be broke due to the old dreaded tinworm, I believe Tom over on RTOC is planning restoring it and doing a rear engine conversion in it, if his finance's allow him to do so :D

Yes, in her day she looked awesome.

Thanks for the info mate! I really hope he manages to follow it through and get her back on the road. If I had the time and space to weld it up, I would have done it myself, but as it was, it seemed like a better idea to allow someone else who loves the GTT to do it.
