    Heads still buzzing 😂 did 2nd spray and will do a spray again in morning before i go away south in lorry so will take carpets back next weekend and then dye the little bit of carpet attached to front of seat at the company thats doing the rest of interior.....or see if they can delete that bit off seat and replace with leather...why the is carpet on seat is beyond me everything is coming along just fine so outcome should be great

    Black interior in my opinion is best.... hence my SC is away in morning to get fully retrimmed/ upholstered in black leather but with blood red inserts.... currently beige which i detest tell ya what you buy the silver one and ill swap you interior hahahahaha

    Road tax for pre face lifts 01-55 £315 Road tax for 55 facelift £315 Road tax for 06 -09 facelifts is £555 Facelifts came out in 55 regs and earlier facelifts in 55 still qualified for the lower tax the change over in price for road tax changed late in 55 regs hence some are 315 and others 555
  12. Lol ...get doors done one week wings the next then bumpers then bonnet following week then roof.... = full respray at end of a couple of months
  13. That’s cheap... im getting my SC done up, its away a week tomorrow to get interior full colour change and upholstered in two toned leather then away to get resprayed ... not a colour change, same colour, just want it looking as good as new interior cost of re trim is 2500 and respray 4000, ps thats 4K for cash so no vat would be interesting to see how much it would be for LS to be resprayed (doesnt need it but just out of interest)
