Lovely remember it now
I think it would look even better without the rear spoiler though

What have you done and further work on it ?

thanks both. yes, very happy i got to keep it. off to northern italy in it soon.
my MOT guy loves an advisory and last year he tried really hard to find something wrong and couldn't...
bolster leather needs repair as usual, but generally in amazing condition, a credit to the previous owner.
