Renault Extra Van Project (soon to be turbo'd)

well, heres my official Renault Extra Van project thread. ive stuck it in 'Lets talk Fiat' as i thought it could sit along side my uno turbo project thread as i know many of you have enjoyed reading it so i thought ud like a simlar thread to read through even tho its not a fiat! if a mod feels it should be deleted can they let me know, cheers.

anyway,i purchased the van as i needed a run about and i had many areas i wanted to cover. i wanted something fun, turbo'd, a van, a renault 5 gt turbo, and a sleeper all in one. so the Renault extra Van was the perfect solution!!

so here is it, sorry its dark, but its the best i have at the moment! basicly the Extra van is a renault 5 with a box on the back lol





ooooooo the lovely stickers in the rear window!! gonna keep the original Renault Van one tho, old skool hehe


inside the back, needs a bloody good clean and a few interior smelly things to freshen it up!


lovely retro renault 5 dash, mmmmmm


nice steering wheel and clocks


and heres the the 1.4 petrol n/a pushrod engine! basicly this is like a renault 5 gt turbo engine but without the turbo bits lol! which will make my future plans much easier

Re: Renault Extra Van Project (soon to be turbo'd)

so while waiting a couple of weeks to pick the van up, i started picking up some 5 gt turbo parts ready for my conversion hehe

won a pair of front 5GTT calipers for £14 off ebay


and when i went to pick them up, i got a 5GTT steering wheel off the bloke for £10 and a set of mint 5GTT clocks also for £10 bargains!!!

5 GTT wheel


and the clocks

Re: Renault Extra Van Project (soon to be turbo'd)

i was then back on ebay, and i won a 5GTT fuel pump for £5


had a dig about under my bed and i found the old dump valve and fitting kit off my uno turbo, so put it to one side ready to fit to the gt turbo lump


went round to a bloke i know who had broken a 5 turbo recently, and managed to get a set of koni adjustable front shocks for £20 another bargain!


bagged another bargain off ebay, an in car adjustable bleed valve, for a whole 99p

Re: Renault Extra Van Project (soon to be turbo'd)

Love it already, gona be one of those, ffs, someones modded an old renault van, why!?!? Then the person saying this will ask why, then they'll have a closer look, realise its pretty tidy for a van with the front ur putting on, then they wont get to see much of the rear end for very long, as it'll be gone Just a dot in the distance
