    I bought this car about 18 months ago, lots of Cup mods and unusual extras.
    It needed an engine rebuild and has been off the road since 1996 so most of the mechanical parts have been replaced.

    Just needs the front end lining up properly, AFR gauge fitting and a MOT and then it's ready for the road. Then re new the decals to keep it period??

    I have a front end lining up tool from Renault. Basically a huge metal solid jig !

    My first R5GT was an electric blue phase 1 followed by a silver phase 2 - miss them both - such rare colours and condition.

    The front end of the car lines up per "Renault" standards but I think the grill is a little distorted so just needs....erm persuading back into position.

    There was a similar looking car on ebay ending tonight but this car is completely different.
    When I find the pictures I will update what has been done to it.

    Unfortunately I have enough middle aged staff members that take a lot of my time already :punish.gif:

    Took the Phase 1 to Loton Park for a test day on Saturday 5th

    Only crashed once!

    Think D586YDO may still be around as I believe I saw it in Norwich last year and someone on the facebook forum bought a car with that reg or one very similar, was black too...

    Much damage done?

    Sorry Adey, don't get much time to get on here.
    No damage to the car, just my pride took a dent.
    The car has now been fitted with the original Leda suspension and the Grp A carb etc replaced with EFI producing around 220BHP
