Have you preserved the patch in the passenger footwell that was put there by Edd China?

:D obviously anything touched by Ed is being treated with great care...
...apart from the rack, which needed doing again!
...oh, and the seats are going to need a going over, again!
and then there's the...
...let's just just say I'll agree to keep the patch, that seems to be holding up nicely!

So much for Wheeler Dealers. Lesson: avoid such cars.

It was almost a decade ago, so major deterioration is to be expected. Kudos to Edd for the lasting qualities of his patch.

Major deterioration after a good restoration is not expected after 10 years. All they did was a quick tidy up of the car and sell it as a properly sorted car. Same with the Jensen-Healey which was awful.
