Personally I think white on black on a red car looks best; that is what I did.

The 4.2 parts catalogue says silver on black in Optional Extras, I don’t know if that means they were white on black normally, but number plates are not mentioned anywhere else. Not sure if this applies to the 3.8 as well, I cant find it in the parts catalogue.
My car has triangular cut outs in the A post; I tried to find a picture which showed this, but this is all I can find.

Thanks for the replies guys I think the holes in mine have been filled in going by the pictures you have posted. They are just going to cut the black off as there is not point in hacking out the holes now. We live and learn.

PS. Christopher, Did you get my e-mail regarding using the lift?

Thanks guys, picking it up on Monday on a trailer. No point in driving it home when the salt has been down. Then it is three months in the garage in a car cocoon . Not sure if they work or not but it cannot be any worse then leaving it uncovered in the garage that can get damp when the mist rolls in of the fields.

Hi Tony,

One of your first jobs now it has been painted should probably be to apply some wax rust protection like Dinitrol to any wired edges of the bonnet or seams that might allow moisture in . It might also be worth re doing any cavities.

As regards the carcoon, I would get a cheap humidity meter ( £ 10 , E bay/Amazon) and put it inside to keep an eye on the moisture content of the air in there. That way you will know it’s doing its job and you can add heating or a dehumidifier if necessary. Ideally you want to keep the relative humidity below 50%.

Well it looks finished. It will be interesting to see what it is like in the flesh on Monday.

I shall stop boring you now with my last pictures which are not very good quality. So this is what you get for £7,400 all in including vat, strip down and rebuild and new part panels to lower wings.

I have not seen the final finished job yet but it looks good so far. Thanks to Andy from Hudson’s for the part panels and new rubbers ( very helpful).

Any comments positive or negotiable would be appreciated.

Looks great, Tony. Hopefully catch you out on the road somewhere when spring arrives and this miserable weather disappears!

Thanks Steve and Simone. Look forward to meeting up at some event in spring/ summer. I hope to be going to the JEC weekend in Nebb House. Simon, nice to see you are getting out in the sports car. You will get older eventually and insurance will not be big issue, but enjoy your youth as it will soon be a memory. Steve, how is the new project going and when will it be on the road.
