Took me a minute but got it in the end!!

I said RING not RIM!

The only thing wrong wth the Clio is the Dent in the Bonnet, everything else is perfect!

Its the 5 thats needs the paint!

Its a smallish one, but it will be taken out before I sell it!! So there will not be any negotiations, but I am sure that we can come to some sort of arrangement!! lol

Thanks Leigh,

The Raider Keeps right up with the Clio up to about 100mph, and its not even boosting properly at the moment either, need to get a standard air filter and back box on there then she will really fly!

Right, a quick update for those people interested. I have been to shropshire this morning to pur-chase some parts for the Forbes Wagon Number 2!

I managed to get the following

x1 New Front Bumper
x2 Front Seats, second hand (but miles better than the ones I had)
x1 New Top Hose (No more dumpvalve pipe)
x1 Standard Air Box (Pipercross coming off so no more clatter when you change gear)
x1 Standard Back box (second hand but like new)
x1 All interior air vents, as mine have been sprayed dodgy raider blue
x1 Standard Gear Nob
x loads of clips and belts that hold things on

The total bill came to £300.00

The bloke I got them off is based just outside Telford and was an absolute top top guy, has a massive warehouse style building (I could have spent days and days there) he had about 8 Renault 5 Turbos he was breaking and too many spare parts I couldnt take them all in!

We did a deal and I came home with the bits I need! I have managed to just get a few marks out of the seats, and have just sorted out a few more bits, so will all be ready to fit onto the Raider tomorrow and Monday, then I am going to get it prepped for paint!!

I didnt think I would put pics up, but will be updated tomorrow when I have put the bits on it!

Forbes!

should be nice mate when done,but seeing the pic of the engine reminds me of my 11 turbo and the anti-perculation fan i had to take out every month because the bushes were not lasting,as i recall it was easier my removing the alternator first!!
at least it had a bigger engine bay than the 5 to work in!

The Raiders always had blue GT Turbo badges on them, other Phase 2 GT Turbo's had red badges on them! Someone at some point has painted my one red but Alan managed to pick it all off, it would look silly in Red!


So it was a Raider we saw at the Ring... I took some pics for you but Rutger has them all! So you'll have to wait but it looked mint.
