Looks like it has machine gun pop marks down the nearside wing....and a sterling effort at getting the race number in the centre of the bonnet. Classy

Just realised they are pop rivets holding the split fibreglass together.

Think thats one from Warrington, a customer said he had seen a slightly worse for wear blue +2 knocking around. If it is and he's using it as an every day good on him.

Might be the one that was on Facebook a few months back. The owner was rivetting plates in to repair an accident - I think he was trying to get it sorted to take part in an event somewhere in Italy.

Well it has an Mot, though is now untaxed. Originally Maroon, apparently. Good to see it being used, although no nearside indicator means he has to watch out for the BiB.

Looks more like 1970's v's Modern brake systems...... Battle scars add character 8) bet if you did that in a metal bodied car it would look a dam sight worse.

Thats interesting....... when did the Tax run out? wounder if the owner hasn't applied for exemption?? seems odd he would MOT it etc and not tax it as it doesn't cost anything and stops the £80.
