Wow lovely low mileage example!

Will look even better once back on the standard wheels. Some very nice cars in your collection.

Fantastic find! That car is lucky to be in your hands! The person that buys your other one will get a 'gift' at any price! Your attention to detail is no less than draw dropping! Best of luck with your new 'adventure'! I look forward to your updates! Thank YOU for sharing!

So the car arrived yesterday, filthy but looked better than I remembered

I always find when looking at a car your potentially buying you look at it very negatively, but once its yours you look at it completely differently.

So yesterday we put the car straight in the unit out of the way, then we got it back out lastnight to give them both a clean

No pics of it clean as it got dark, but it looks so much better already!

I will get better pictures as I go along, so far plans are:

Sell any spares/parts I don't want.

Transfer registration
Have all dents removed
Fit the original wheels (need new centre caps for these)
Full major service by APT
Replace exhaust manifold heat shields & radiator mounting brackets
Detail engine bay
Have front bumper & bonnet painted
Have paintwork mopped
Lower 25-30mm all round
Detail all in the arches
Detail underside

Thanks,

Got somebody coming to view it tonight funnily enough

I know what your saying, but we want to use it a bit, and enjoy it, so we might do a few small bits but it will get returned to fully standard if/when we sell it on

A few pics of the Dentman doing his thing....

I went round and circled all the dents, 9 in total!

All have now been removed














I have also removed the HKS blow off valve, and refitted the original.
I am putting the original wheels tonight, then its going to Gary at APT on Saturday for full major service, Geo set up and to have the R888's put on the original wheels as well

Once that's done, I will be doing the engine bay, then having the paint work done, then will do a full decontamination on the paintwork, clay bar, have my friend mop it and then I will seal it.

Then its on to the underside, so its all ready for next spring
