Ding dong, Avon calling

Avon Safety Wheels clad in Avon tyres since Michelin stopped making them in 175/70r13. With a Lotus at work a blue like this works better with a silver wheel instead of black, I think these give the car a good image lift whilst still being an OEM rim.

Car should be off to the bodyshop in about a week. Sills are holed, hole in the inner wing near the brake servo, splits in dash and seats so load of interior re-trim plus stainless exhaust are on the todo list. I'll get them to deal with other rust bubbles too, hoping to avoid a full respray but have it done in the same colour if it needs it.

Hopefully when it's done Steve Hancock will like to take a look at the results. It's not going to be a quick or cheap job but I think this car deserves to be preserved as do my other two.
