  1. Like an expectant father !

    Also decided to go for the Ceramic coating after the respray. Got it on my Hyundai and it's worth every penny/pound. A proper shine that looks better than cars sitting in a showroom They've been in touch today to ask permission to take her as an exhibit on their stand at the Oswestry Classic show. That's before they've even started working on her. They reckon she'd be a talking point. I've said yes of course even though I won't be in the country to be there myself but I'll see the pics
  2. L 975 EPB (my baby) has gone in today for "the works". She's having a full respray in the same, original colour, with any rust removal and dent correction. She's being rust protected underneath. She'll also be getting a full service with all fluids and filters being changed. I'm also having a full inspection of the suspension bits and pieces. I can't be too precious about not having her around for three or four weeks because we are off to Skiathos for a fortnight on Friday. They have promised to take lots of pics so that I can follow progress whilst drinking lots of Mythos in the sun Can't wait to see her in "as new" condition again.

    Original is my mantra at the moment 99GT Hi Jeff, you got it wrong mate. I'd stay there in a heartbeat!
  5. Like an expectant father !

    Yep, can't wait to get back there. Four days of torture to go then back to my idea of paradise
  6. Like an expectant father !

    Don't worry! There'll be pics galore when she's done I've told Ryan that I insist on lots of pics of progress so that I can still be in touch whilst away swigging copious quantities of Greek Nectar in the sun

    Thanks GT-4grey and Chris. Yes I'm nervous but expectant. The guys that are doing the work for me actually have E-type Jag #2 in being reborn from the ground up and she's looking amazing My original three spoke wheels are also getting the treatment and the original side repeaters and indicators are going back on. She's gonna look original and mint when she's done

  11. Petrol prices :(

    Just put a bit of V-Power in the GT4. Seems like I'm still lucky here at £1.29.9
  12. Thought You guys might like this.....

    That's a proper beauty.... Brilliant that you were involved.
  13. That's one hell of a camber.......
  14. Jeffers-1 and myself at Oswestry Speed and Rally Show today. Two UK GT4s side by side is a rare thing.
  15. Went off to Oswestry Speed and Rally Show today with Jeffers-1 in his GT4 and Dave (TommytookaMoto) in his Gen7. Sunshine was abundant and I need "after sun soother" ! The show itself wasn't brilliant but enough going on to keep our attention for a few hours. There was an unfortunate incident quite early on when Jim Lawrence in his Bowler Wildcat left his breaking too late and did a headfirst into a tree. We're all hoping he's okay. It took an hour to extricate him from the car and get him into the local air ambulance. Pics below are the two GT4s in the carparl/field and Jim's Wildcat after the off !!!!!!!!
  16. Cleaned it ready for "Speed and Rally" show tomorrow. Put the new mats in as well. Exciting stuff....
  17. Cleaning day ready for Speed and Rally at Oswestry tomorrow.
  18. Well that's very strange, the pic I posted yesterday is halfway down page 1 !!!!! Try again Meirion. My baby with a bit of a grunge photoshopping.
  19. What came in the Post Today?

    Still a bit on the boring side for all the "Faffers" but my pair of original front indicators arrived today. £32 off EBay.
  20. What came in the Post Today?

    Still not got anything exciting but all good stuff. A past owner had put clear repeaters on but I wanted original so these arrived today. From Lott, total with shipping £26.
  21. Got my original GT4 ST205 16" 3 spokes today. Need a bit of a refurb but not in horrendous condition.
  22. What came in the Post Today?

    I know it's boring when it's not a new BIG turbo or smart wheels but these arrived today for me. The seats in my ST205 are in very, very, good condition as standard so I thought they deserved a little protection for the future. 2 seat covers from Argos, with postage £14.
  23. What came in the Post Today?

    My Toyota centre console hinge arrived today for GT4 ST205. Hurray. Cost £20'ish from someone in the UAE.
  24. Hi ChelrGirl, didn't get as far as the triangle. Had a traumatic morning trying to get her started after 4 weeks of inactivity and hence a flat battery. Drove for an hour or so locally to get some juice in the battery then stopped for a shot of Shell V-Power and had to head straight to the Ponderosa to meet Jeffers at the appointed time. Did some miles and enjoyed them all so that's all that matters really isn't it. I could never do the Evo Triangle in the Celica as fast as I used to do it on the bike anyway
