Nice colour combo, I know blue Interceptors are more common but they do look great! Especially with the lighter interiors. When I was looking for an Int it is what I wanted, still, I'm very happy with the one I have.
Good luck with it, and straighten up that side light/indicator! :wink:

Big thanks to Steve Payne for his help.

Everything went smooth as.

Scuttle panel took less than an hour! (Steve said 2.5 hrs!)

Next job , new panels & a lick of paint.

NOTE: Mk2 style venting clearly visible under the valance or whats left of it !

Had a spare day off on Friday , so off to the sprayshop to strip the bonnet!

Used an orbital sander and a rubber grinder on the vents (tedious)

Looks in great shape for 40 years old (Unlike other areas!)
