  1. Full Respray in original colour  

    Mates rate and a half!!!!! Brilliant job, car looks fabulous, even did the arches, wheels and calipers.

  2. translator bearings  

    Renewed the translator bearings and rose joints. At start I didn't know if they needed doing but as I had taken the boot floor out I thought I might as well make life easy for myself. Very glad I did as they were pretty shot. Its amazing how you dont

  3. completely renewed the boot and bulk head carpets  

    Looks fabulous, sometimes its just little details that can change the whole look around. ot fun changing the bulk head carpet but another couple of lotus induced scars wont make much difference

  9. Sport 300 Front Blip  

    Dramatically changes the look of the car. Makes it look like the racer it was born to be. Simply cant stop looking at it!!! However there is a functional side as well. Originally the car would start to lift at the front when at higher speeds w

  10. Protek fully adjustable dampers and springs  

    Both front and rear adjustable Protek shocks with new springs. Makes the suspension look like a sports car's again rather than rusty mess. Not the easiest to install due to compressing the springs enough and the usual problems when dealing with bits t
