What a transformation and well worth the time spent so far - I suspect he'll be over the moon, that is one nice looking car now and as you say it's 20 years old !

Nice! and a worthy car for the attention

What do you think of the TurtleWax T10?
Ive got the T10 and T30 but not had chance to use them properly yet

Yeah so far quite impressed. It does what it says on the tin. If anything a little dusty but from a very amateur perspective it's not bad at all

Some may say an old banger, but brought back properly as you've started, I think it will be around when all these cars now with their electronic toys are dead and gone, who knows a full digital dash will last. Nice work, May she roll on another 20 years.

lol I think anyone that called it an old banger would receive a thump on the nose! reading through the original bill of sale just realised how many added extras this car has, how many people can honestly say their car has double glazing? yep this one even has that

That is some lump of a motor! I do love these older high spec BM's.

Great job
