Wow. Only just seen this. Welcome back to the fold Gareth. I’m glad you got this and you will do this Car justice as you have done with your other coupes in the past. It was good to see you a couple of years back for the first time in yonks! Hopefully, we will meet again. Maybe at the Xmas meet...?
Wanted - Indian bride. Cash waiting.

Not gonna lie I needed a cooling off period after she went :(
All good now though and I can't wait to see her back on the road. G as I come across bits and pieces I will let you know in case you want them, e.g. I am sure I have a new reinforced bov diagram knocking around somewhere (I'm sure the one on the car is split). Also, there may be a modified front grill knocking around somewhere - actually have a proper rummage in the boot it may be in there.

Hey. I know how that feels after my last coupe was sold. Working in getting her running at mo. Need to be able to move her about under her own steam.

Given her a wash and had a good look round.

Going to get her mechanically sound then We'll tackle the body work.

What ever you got for her would be good.
