cool story ,not long seen an old renault 5 turbo i used to own on ebay recently too ..
was looking a little sorry for itself too which upset me a bit lol !!
funny how you do get emotionally attached to cars isnt it lol ..
anyway fuego turbo eh ,now they are a car i havnt seen for a long time .
as for paintwork i do painting myself mate ,but at the minute am up the wall and mad busy , but am sure there will be plenty of people with suggestions and recomendations ..
either way make sure you shop around ,and always ask to see a finished job to check on quality ..
