Thought I should start a proper build thread on here for my car, it's been a while since I've been on other than lurking around the facebook page!
This is the 'new user' thread i posted a while ago
And a reminder, this is how it looked when I bought it
Late last year I swapped the rear lamps over from the original 79 specs for later LX ones. Some purists may see this as sacralige on an early four eye, but it's kinda necessary over here to comply with the regulations on amber turn signals (not allowed red ones on cars later than 1960-something). Plus I've always liked these lamps, they make it look wider!
Whilst I was at it I sprayed the centres of them black and added some black pinstriping to enhance the early 80s feel of the car.
Late last year it also made it all the way into London (round trip of 100 miles or so) in heavy traffic although it had a bit of an overheating issue as seen here...
And made it to a nice old car meet local to me where I got this nice shot
More updates coming... (transferring from my build thread on a different website)
