She is the one from southampton, the bloke was a cow boy but the car has turned out to be a little jem, rock solid with a very healthy G40 lump, i sold the buckets it came with for enough to hopefully get a good interior and some matching wing mirrors, i'll have her mint with in the month.

Looks quite tidy, and quite a good colour.
Have you got an interior lined up? I might be able to lay my hands on one, the chap I sold mine to about 8 years ago still has it in his garage! As far as I remember the front seats and door cards were in decent nick, but there is no rear foam, only the fabric which was a little faded. I could find out if you're interested?
And I think Jezza-7 would be very interested in the steel wheels should you want to part with them  ;)

I just need front and rear seats plus matching wing mirrors, im getting the stone chips and tiny bit of suface rust fixed at a local car medic (like chips away). Just cant find seats near enough to Bedfordshire for me to pick them up!

Well, my old seats are in South Wales so that's no good for you to pick up either!

Thats ok mate im now picking up a full set up in unmarked condition for £45 tomoro. I kind of need the wheels till i find a nice wide set, the tyres on mine are brand new but they just dont grip enough at the front, on damp roads she spins in 1st 2nd and 3rd befor i reach full gas, i cant drive round every where with a spare change of pants in the boot.

I saw a G40 interior on ebay the other day, not sure where it is though.
