Hello all I just thought I would start a project thread on my r32 Gtr I recently got I sold my Renault 5 GT turbo after a 3 year restoration I was on the commitee for renault turbo owners club. So this is my new project I have a small budget but I am a hgv mechanic so hopefully I can do the jobs myself. The car has twin hks air filters a stainless steel exhaust coil overs and is ment to of been chipped?? The car has been stood since 2008 and it's only done 60,000 miles I have just done the cambelt and water pump on it to be safe and the rear arches need a little bit of work but my freind is going to look at them and weld in new metal and then I have just got to get it ready for an MOT I haven't even driven the car yet but can't wait any way here's a few pics of when I got it.

Nice starting point, looks clean and tidy, I can remember when mine looked like that, all the best with it bud.

I remember my brother having an R5, 1400cc, stupid power for the size of engine, I also remember him changing the head gasket about once a month, fun though.

As I'm typing this I just realised, that was about 20-25 years ago, I suddenly feel really old, cheer for that Chris.

That's a lovely looking R32 mate what plans do you have for it? A set of nice 18s would look awesome but leave the body as it is..
