Latest edition to the fleet

Still has a mismatched door card and two or three splits in the dash. Current plan is to send to the bodyshop to have sills and other holes that shouldn't be there taken care of and all door cards and dash re-covered. If it's on 155r13s will switch to 175/70r13 on Avon Safety Wheels like my two door. Will also add parking sensors like on the red car and the head unit with built in speakers to give tunes and not damage anything. Potentially it could be a full re-spray if there is lots of welding required, if that has to happen will go with the original colour. Let me know your thoughts.

All sounds good, but I would go with slightly banded steels and keep the chrome trim rings and hub caps. If you go for a complete respray be extremely careful of the rear screen rubber, they are only made in unobtainium..... and that is very expensive!

I do already have a spare set of the alloys and even have replica centre caps! Rear rubber is not in the best of shape :(

None of them are! But you won't find a better one than the one you have! If you try to remove it it will probably fall in bits.
