Was that the front end that had been dry stored? I saw that and thought about it.

Andy, sorry mate off topic, no pacific blue bolsters I am afraid, there is something wrong with your PM, not accepting messages?

Afraid so Joss! Not everyone's thing but I've always wanted it and it seams like a suitable car!

Afraid so my arse. Have been thinking about it for mine to make it more useable.  You got figures etc?

Spent about £2,400 getting all the parts incl another set of front legs, managment and bags. Not to mention the time taken so far!

One day to install the managment. Tank also had to be modified so it could be inverted under the rear shelf.

Another complete day to fit the struts and run the air lines. I was being very fussy as to how they would run etc.

Probably easier to just pay someone to do it but thats not why I do it!

Ian this is a great looking car! I love the colour, the pinstripes, everything about it works.

 I can't say I'm a fan of bags normally but with your car it seems almost the right thing to do if that makes sense:) 

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing yours one day!

 

One more Instagram pic (ije79)...

Had the radiator re-cored (£200) and replaced the heater valve as that had a small leak inside (£70 from BMW).

 

Trying hard to get this on the road in the next few weeks.
