Well looks like she'll be going in over new year for a freshen up. Will be contacting Racegraphics tomorrow for the decals. It's going in to

www.alsaautomotive.co.uk

Alun did the front of the 450SE for me & the standard of the work is simply 2nd to none. A lot of his work is stripping Ferraris & restoring them to their former glory, you name it he's painted it. I'll be updating with piccys of work in progress so hopefully will be an interesting read.
Anyone know where I can get the TVR metal bonnet & boot badges? Ta. thumbup

Hi Alan. Having fun? yes This car is an absolute mentalist! When it's in the garage I have to chain it up to stop it getting out. hehe
Got the dash apart at the mo. Getting a vineer panel from Stephen 'HOTTY'. By BBWF she should be very nice indeed. Going to put a new zorst on it too. How are you keeping? Got anything else yet?

Wyn hi

Glad your enjoying smile, must admit, it does shift along!!

Still toying with the Aston idea, have to loose the S2000 & get a sensible one for daily travel & train car parks (wifey thinks I'm spoilt if I have two ragtops) - my view? she is just being picky!!

Look forward to seeing it again at next years BBWF

Hi Wyn
Try TVR Car Parts they supplied the spot lamps for the SX and rubber trim for her, what other jobs do you have planed for the beast.

Hi Martin, she needs a new hood, got a few greasy bits to replace & the interior needs tidying. Nothing too drastic really. Hows the SX now? All good?

I did away with the rubber strip on my old 350 it does nothing only cover up a badly fitting bumper, so I made the bumper fit really tight and properly then no need for the rubber, look heaps better too!
While I was at it I fitted 400se sidelights and indicators. It looked trick.
Stewart McQuillan owns it now and it still looks awsome

THIS! Bought a pair of shoddy ones off e-bay for about £20 and have re-sprayed them. They'll look quite the part when re-installed.
An updated version of the airport is available but is literally hundreds of pounds!
