Silver's quite good in that most colours won't clash IMO................but then I'm not allowed to buy my own clothes at home, so what do I know?...........
Sue must be colour blind too then =)) =))

Always good to see some cash spent on the car by the previous owner!

That'll be the car you've referred to as a shed for 5yrs =))
She's being recycled for other projects.

Personally I don't understand the thinking here. Scrapping a car like that is sacrilege. Yeah I've taken the piss at times but at the end of the day it's a very well looked after good example.........Hopefully the return is better than selling it as it is

About 3 fold, rear arches are going as is underneath, she's 21yrs old and has done us well, and once you take off all the goodies I've added over the years there's not a lot left.
