Renault 5 Gordini/Turbo yours as well?

Phase 1 GT Turbo, 1986. Bought it sight unseen in 2014. Brilliant car, lightweight and awesome handling....sound familiar?

I've had a good day, I took the docs advice and did some writing, a story about a young guy who becomes an assassin inspired by his own dishonest family who he murders first!

 

I expect you all to buy a copy when it's published!

Roger :wub:

An ex colleague of mine wrote and self published his first book. I bought a copy and really enjoyed it. He's written a few others since and is a happy bugger!

Best wishes and I'll happily buy a copy and read it. It will probably surprise some people that I can actually read. Spelling... Well, that's a different sqill.

Very nice. I had my front resprayed after fixing the splitter - got 3 stone chips already 😭😭

Now debating whether I should wrap the whole car purple, or respray.

Who did the work? Seems decent to me - no orange peel etc

Has anyone seen that Yani on Dave channel he has You tube channel where he reviewed a liquid vinyl application 

goes on like a paint but can be peeled off later if you want to change or restore back to original ? 

I am having my alloys re-sprayed to gloss black but not convinced it will be a great job as it’s insurance paid job so a man in a big van doing it?

would  have prefer to have it done at proper alloy workshop where it would been  done properly but as alloy insurance  is funding it I am stuck with man in van

My Alloys were professionally sand blasted, treated and Powder coated Gloss black. Looks awesome and was £50 a wheel + £10 to refit tyres and rebalance.

All that respraying....considering he had to take it back to gel coat because some of the chips were to base.....and alloys were £1100.

I've just had my IT consultant contract extended from the end of September for another year (done three months + ten of the first twelve so far). There's no such thing as job security any more, even as an employee so this is great news today and has made me very happy!

Yes I wished mine were done this method but I am stuck between a rock and hard place having to use the insurance company agents 

I am going to take a gamble and hope the spray technique they use will not suffer until a couple of years have passed as I need to get all brake disks & pads changed after summer ☹️☹️

It's your legal right to use any repairer on your car, don't let them strong arm you into a sub standard job Clive.

Cheers Bibs

yes I should have argued the toss but the alloys cover I got from Snows looks like it just for accidental repairs so getting them to do a respray was pushing the limit of the cover however I think the next time I will stand my ground 

also the guy due tomorrow and I didn’t want leave it as the alloys were badly chipped when I attended lotus in peaks last month
