EXTERIOR All the rubbers over and around the windows, indicators etc are new. All the glass is around the car is clean has no scratches or creaks. The locals function except the ignition is on A fuel cut off and button start which has been added as anti-theft. To make this car 100% I would only chrome the bumpers. They have signs of ageing and few small dents from poor parking skills
. INTERIOR The seats and door panels are great and have nothing missing or to add. The carpet is clean and new all-round and new headlining. The wood has been done as seems darker than standard. Everything is functional except the radio is temperamental, not sure if that's the aerial or something else.
ENGINE The engine bay is clean and restored as it seems. Myself I have had a full service with plugs filters distributor changed and also I had the engine and gearbox mount with the drive shaft connector changed. The car drives good and breaks are good to.
TRANSMISSION The gearbox is good. selection is fine once you know where the gears are which simple to personally.
RUNNING GEAR Everything is just right.
ELECTRICS All is working exactly as it should.
