Returning to the fold ....

Not a 'new user' ... but it's been a while ....
3 years since I SORN-ed Bonnie - my wee Mk1 black S Special - and tucked her away in a dry corner.
And boy, have I missed her! :(
Unfortunately she's got so much tin-worm that she not only needs full inner & outer sills & arches, but also strips along the floorpan on both sides - and goodness knows how much else would be required to get her back into commission again ( things I KNOW she would need are coolant hoses, power steering hoses, new battery etc. etc. )
So, I'm afraid that after a long & happy relationship, many grin-filled trips around the NW coast of Scotland, and many fun-filled trackdays at Knockhill (including one which resulted in an engine transplant) she'll be getting stripped down for parts :(
If anyone is needing anything for a black Mk1 there will be a list on the 'For-Sale' section shortly ...

However ..... viewtopic.php?f=3&t=14387
I'm back & ready to roll this year :D

When's Knockhill???? :D

Thought I'd jump in here [FACE WITH TEARS OF JOY] Does your wee black car have any of the following? Front upper strut brace, rear mudguards (short type) or oem front lip? Congrats on the new car!
