    The first pic shows how the car was when I bought it. The car is a one owner with full history but hasn't had the luxury
    of a garage or careful parking. I picked it up for a song :)

    The car is still undergoing changes and there is still quite a bit to do. Below is some idea of how its going so far.

    Apart from the obvious differences in the pictures, mods include changing the interior from mushroom cloth to mid red leather and of course the retractable badge you see in my avatar.

    OK, after a surprisingly low quote for a complete strip down, window out total body spray in Slovenia, I took the plunge and decided to rid those nagging trolly dings once and for all.

    Decided to go monotone as I never really liked the two tone look, so replaced both bumper inserts for the new colourmatched ones at the same time as the spray job and here we go, not bad for a 12 year old car is she?

    I gave the old girl a clean so took a few pics to put in the album.

    Suffice to say, no Fairy liquid or Mr Sheen was used in the cleaning process.
