Fantastic, Francis! Great colour combination. How does it run? Faster than a police car?

Ha ha ha! Of course. The tyres were that came with it were Michelin 235/70 R15". They filled the wheel arches, and the increased rolling radius slowed it down somewhat... Yes its very rapid now, will outpace most but not those darned speed cameras :roll: I am glad I took off all the nitrous oxide stuff though.... its fine in standard form ! :D

You have noticed that I am being a bit discrete about the front!! At the moment it has a MkIII front bumper, but I am looking into having a 3 piece MkII made.. Probably in stainless from 'nam. (not Beckenham)..... I have my old original bumper for a template but so far cannot find anyone to replicate it.....

A lot has happened in a year.... Got the car back today from body shop complete with new roof (no new front spoiler.... ) . I had it spayed the original silver as a nod to its history. Just need to re-fit the red interior now :D

Yes, its the local 1/4 mile drag strip :shock: …. Grant, I have only had the roof done but I gave the body a good polish, came up well. I was never a fan of the Websato, (Britax version) too small to be any use and rattly when closed. The car felt a lot quieter, and tauter on the lanes. I am very happy :D
