Hi Dan,

You can see out of the window. It's not legal as was done for display purposes. It will be changed in due course. I think it's important to conserve the history of the car. Brian Angus kindly sent some photos of when the car was started about 10 years ago so nice have those on the file 

Cheers Barry. Still not forgotten you and the S3 NA. Planning on calling him tomorrow. 

 

There isn't going to be any quick progress on this but it's still a pleasure to have in my garage

Stuart, just been thinking about your car and the work you are planning, it's crying out for a TV documentary to be made as you bring it back to life. From the YouTube clip Travis has posted a third of the programme has already been filmed!  Does anyone have contacts in a TV production company? Why can't you ever find them when you need one in a hurry :)

Is that a panic button on the bottom right of the panel?  Or does it say "damp"?  ;)

Very interesting project by the look of it.

Choppa, Jay is already on the video situation and I am sure will make a spectacular job of it. Won't be until second quarter of next year tho. I loosely know John Miles so he could also discuss the car as I understand he did a lot of work on it. 

 

I think a panic button might be needed as I am not the best with a spanner !

Probably the holy grail of all G cars as its the only one around.

Awesome. I'm really looking forward to seeing this in the future - best of luck with the project - we will all be willing you on to succeed.
