R5 Campus conversion.
« on: 17:01, Thu 07 April 2011 »
On the stardard 5 campus, how hard would it be to take those annoying plastic panels off the doors and rear quarters?

Is there a specific thread for doing an r5 campus comversion to a R5GTT? dont want to waste peoples time asking questions that might already have been Asked/Answered before.

Cheers

James

The campus plastics are held on with clips maninly except for the rear of the quater panel ones which have 10mm nuts under arch, once removed the nuts the pull off.

As for turbo conversion on campus don't think there is a specific build thread but its pretty easy to do if your mechanically minded. I done 3 so far myself last being this one

So how easy is it to do the conversion yourself then?

Its easy to do the conversion mate, most of it is case of swaping parts over and making few bits fit. Wiring is easy too with only few extra wires need to be run.
