Our Cinq

Finally, after nearly 3 years off the road, this little Sporting is now roadworthy!

Work included...
  • The rear beam and springs have been refurbished
  • New shocks all round
  • Powerflex bushes
  • New fuel tank
  • New brakes all round
  • New exhaust
  • New wishbones
  • Welding in various places - especially the offside rear wheel arch
  • Painted front and rear bumpers - colour matching took some time as the car had faded
  • Rocker cover gasket, sensors and general service items
  • Wheels refurbished and powder coated
  • Steering wheel refurbished
  • New radiator and cooling system pipes
  • Period radio - complete with cassette player
There are still areas left to do, but it's now usable (and legal).






Now for our next project...



Thanks,

Jason & Shaun (Dave Saint)

Re: Our Cinq

how exciting- well done

very inspiring

I've got one of your-next-project already, but I'm not sure you'll find it as rewarding a resto!

Broom yellow is the Coupe-colour; which seems a different shade to the 'Cento giallo, doesn't it...?

what's the mileage on both cars, Dave..?

Re: Our Cinq

Thanks Dante!

We're thinking that the Coupe will be more of a challenge - one reason being a reduced availability of some spare parts.

Our Broom Coupe is definitely a different colour to the Cinq, as the Coupe has had a poor paint job in the past which we hope to rectify.

Mileage on Cinq is 57k, and Coupe is 139k.

How do you find your Coupe? We're just starting out with this, so any tips would be gratefully received!

Thanks,
Dave.
