A pleasure to read, some lovely cars you have/have had.
Hope you get to keep your convertible, at least you have something great waiting in the wings if it comes to having to sell.

Quite a journey all in all, impressive skills shown, and great results throughout, very inspiring

Thanks James, it's been a challenge and I have certainly learnt a lot so far. Cheers!

Yep, many times I have questioned my sanity as the car was definitely in a terrible state! Still, I like a challenge and am hoping that it will be worth it in the end.

Cheers, and agreed about the mid-range boot, there is nothing quite like that 'pushing you in the seat' surge you get from an old 900 in full flow!
