Custom brace across the back there? My car has the three bolts going straight through the body into the chassis, with no metal piece connecting them. 

I'm all for maintaining original colour, but you are going to stray this is one of the nicest colours on the S2.

Hi Mike

I Vapour blast my engines I then paint the outside of them so they stay looking good for years.

I've had lots of Esprit's and driven most models but I prefer s1s and S2.2s

I finished the car 16 months ago I just never got round to posting anything up

Short walk around of the car

The car will be at the restoration show at the NEC this weekend
