Also a point I've been meaning to make about the car is it started out as a resto mod but over the three years I've been doing this it's become less of a mod and more of a resto. I haven't and don't want to add a single hole that shouldn't be there, it's important I think. I have however done things like the clutch release, painted the centre consul, changed the dampers, TMR's, fuel tank etc etc but I have kept or purchased original parts to replace and restore once the car is back on the road. The black around the headlights was a little concern but then to repaint that area Orange is negligible. So too removing the AC but again I have all the parts or at least the important bits. I guess the more I keep the car original the better it's value will be in the long term.

Pete sorry you did ask, yes mate no problem if you get the Nimbus sent here I can have my mate Dave fabricate it for you or whatever suits. The coating is ceramic, it's applied under (US) licence by a company on my industrial estate. Although in just the one colour.


Cheers Bud.

So not Zircotec? The colour looks fab IMHO!

Looking forward to seeing the machine next year! 8-)

Tidied up the loom at the front of the car. Described by John (JDS) as CRISPY :D

Some before shots, difficult to see but you get the idea.

And after. I reckon I painstakingly removed and recovered 85% of the old tape and split plastic sleeving.
