It's taken a while to read through this thread but it was worth it, what a car this is mate it looks like it's come out of a timewarp. Clean as. Looks stunning and mods in the right places. I honestly could never tire of looking at this car. If it was mine I'd consider shifting my bed into the garage

Thanks very much mate

Garage is tiny unfortunately but I did consider this....

Thanks very much man

I started it all in April 2019, so it's been a few years now, started the post in April 2020 so was already a year into it

Tbh there's no big plans for it, just keep it well maintained, clean and enjoy it a little bit

Still everything thats done in that time alone is unreal, hoping to pull my own out of its sorry state some day and do something similar. You have really taken it to top level. Looks so good

Been a long winter but I’m looking forward to getting the car back out start or May, few shows booked this year so hopefully get out and about much more than the last few years

I normally use Honda MTF3 for the gearbox but after a few long discussions with a guy in the know I’ve decided to change to the Amsoil MTF, it meets or exceeds all of the MTF3 specs and is a fully synthetic oil unlike the MTF3

the prep for coming season

Had the car out a few times now, also picked up a few parts that I'd like on before Mimms at the end of the month

A custom made brake cylinder stopper, 1 of only 2 pieces ever made I believe and the only 1 anodised red. Big thanks to @robbieD for this excellent looking piece of kit
