Well done.Hopefully mine will be back on the road this summer after 26 years (8 in my ownership).

 

I just hope that I actually enjoy driving it as I see lots of people restore cars and then get rid of them within a short period of time, presumably because they don't live up to the expectation?

That is phenomenal Phil. Well done.

I have huge respect for anyone that can keep focussed on seeing a project through over that extended length of time.

I don't believe it! You tease us with a comment like that and there isn't one photo? :P

 

Well done! Enjoy! :):animier:

Well Ive done 70 miles in my new toy so far and nothings fallen off or blown up so that's a bonus. I reckon I either need to adjust the timing slightly or check the accelerator jets as the car has no pull. It travels merrily at any speed once you get there but theres little acceleration. I wont worry too much for the moment as Im happy to potter around whilst everything beds in as the engine was completely rebuilt but definitely a job for the future. Still grinning. Phil

Nice work on the interior - love the seats Phil. Is that Alcantara on the dash and centre console ?

Yep, leather seats, steering wheel, transmission tunnel top, map pocket door card inserts. Everything else is alcantara. 

Leather done by Paul at Moores trim, alcantara done by me.
