          Thanks for the kind comments guys.

          Not sure what to do with the car yet.
          I am still running the engine in and have done about 80 miles now.

          If I do keep the car I will probably raise the suspension up a bit (its far too low for me).
          Maybe get the wheels powder coated matt grey (same as the white racings).
          Then I will use it for show/meets and the occasional track day.


          Here are a few photos from my road test on Saturday

              Doing some final touches now.
              The carpet had 2 holes in it.

                  There was so much crap on the carpet I was glad of the opportunity to vacuum underneath the trims.

                    It was a good job that I decided to take this job on.
                    After the carpets were removed, I found that there were soaking.

                    I got the hose pipe out and completed a water ingress test, turns out that the drains underneath the scuttle were blocked.
                    These were cleaned, no more water ingress.

                    Bonus 20p found under the carpet!!

                      After I hung the rear carpet out and left it for 24 hours to dry.
                      The inside of the car was dried using a cloth, I then left it outside all day in the sun with the windows down.

                      I bought a second hand carpet from eBay for 40, this was fitted.

                      Then all of the interior was put back together.
