    Hi, I recently bought an 1983 R5 TS and I'm planning to get it roadworthy for now and drive a few years and then build a T2 replica. I just now got into these old Renaults so I don't know much regarding what you can do to them, what fits from other models etc but I hope I'll learn a lot from this forum. If there is any sort of guide or manual from the time when they took the standard r5 from the chassis line and modified them into turbos I would be very interested.

    I believe @r5gordini@r5gordini is our resident expert on these cars.

    Hi and welcome! Yes I have many years experience of the Mk1 Renault 5. I've had many Gordini Turbos and other Mk1 5s and sort of own a Turbo 2. I think it would be fun to do a Turbo 2 type conversion with a more modern engine. My only warning is that it will be expensive and challenging! Parts for the T2 are expensive. Most Mk1 parts are pretty scarce these days but I do have a good stock although some parts are selling out.

    I think you are best off looking at some
    T2s and taking measurements and making custom metalwork although some parts, especially strengthening panels are available from specialists in France. You can buy most exterior panels too. The T2 wings are more easily available than standard ones!

    Sounds a fun project! Post in the Classics section of the forum with your progress.

    Andrew
