Yeah its amazing how you fill space! it looks worse than it is, give it a week or two and it will be better organised. You have to create chaos to organise it....

I think you need another storage unit!

How much you think you'll list it for? I guess they're high 4 figures now?
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2000 Boxster - New enough to drive sublimely but old enough to nearly feel like a classic, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

Might be worth dropping a note to this guy:
http://forum.retro-r...1300-gt?page=11

From his first post on that thread, he was looking for one but that was back in late 2016. So no idea if he's still looking!

Sounds a fair price for one if its in good nick.

No much to report on progress. 

 

I finally took ownership of my F and its honestly not as bad as i expected. Fitted the black hood temp and it think it looks much nicer than the red. At some point the rear spoiler is going....once i find a replacement boot life. 

 

I got my VDP in the unit too, had a good poke of the front corner and its not good news. Pics to follow.

 

Had a poke of my mum Morris too and that now has a big hole too! Looks like my welder is going to get some serious abuse this year!
