I didnít know you had this car! I made a half-hearted attempt to buy it a couple of years ago but the bloke wouldnít budge on price. I always hoped it had gone to a good home. Iíve always loved the Lagoon colour but my fleet days are over now. Just down to three cars now, one of which is always being renovated some way or another!

Looks like good progress so far. Noticed in one of the pictures, door card covering is delaminating like in my silver car. Are you thinking to recover them or to replace? Seems to me now so long since production ended, the days of finding long lasting replacements might be a short lived solution. Soon be needing a card coverer in the forum. I can only imagine it being a tricky job to do well, a bit like welding.

The owner didnít have it for long and as reported on here, it has been through a few owners recently.

Lots and lots and lots of work required to get it back to a good state.



















Best of luck mate ,
The colour is awesome 😎
I have lots of bits from my donor
Car ,trim ,single din stereo with surround , wheel arch trim etc .
No charge to club members just the cost of post from Ireland 🇮🇪.
