We may sometimes question your sanity, but there's no questioning your dedication to the cause. :D


So may I suggest.

Nope lol Im keeping both, and 2 sd1's and the xantia and the......... I will just be poor for along time.

I would part with the GT but only to a club member with a garage who would only use it for high days and holidays, and its not anywhere near valuable enough yet for that.

I want it back now lol :D

Well done on getting it looking smart again Tim. Its quite possibly even better than it was before now, as you have had all the bits that I had painted re-done!

It definately needs that GT badge to finish it off.

Will do Phil, will be the weekend as its always dark when I get home.

Gave her a wash today to get rid off all the dust, touched up the few chips with the leftover paint. Drove down the Cit dealer to get some trim clips and a aerial for the AX and the parst dept is SHUT this week again! :roll: I mean how crap is that, noone at the dealer even looked at the GT even though I was parked right outside the door. :evil:

Anyway looks like the osr door needs painting as its dented in such a place it cant be got at :cry:

Got to say, scrubbed up well - and the bespoke graphics were spot on. Lovely example - just need to make sure she is fully sorted mechanically now (unless I'm wrong and she is!). Here's to no more oil leaks :D Then you wil have just about the best Mk 1 around.
