I don't really have many photos to post at the moment but here goes.

Here is the car taken about 2 years ago with the original front splitter set up. We normally put on the carbon fibre one for when it's on the road (yes carbon fibre and not the fibre glass crap) as the hockey sticks, upper and lower splitter are worth about £2k so don't run the risk of clipping a rabbit or something.



Here is it with the carbon fibre splitter. The keen eyed will notice that it doesn't have the blanking plates on the lower grill on this photo. They are incredibly rare and I didn't get a set for it until recently.







Interior shot showing the very rare passenger airbag. Probably the rarest of optional extras.



Unfortunately I've only got 2 under bonnet picks available at the moment. The 1st one was after a test so this was honestly the worst condition its ever been in. I'd been having issues keeping the colour on the turbo cover and had been told to try aerospace 303. The turbo cover was treated and then the car taken for a long run (a couple of hundred miles, which for a 16k mile concours condition car is to the moon and back!). I took the photo afterwards to show what happened and as you can see the turbo cover went back to faded. I showed the photo around and sought advice and Gyeon Jeremy helped me out and I took the next shot after using Gyeon prep and Gyeon Q2 trim. What a difference!

After aerospace 303 and a long run



After Gyeon prep and trim.




Tucked up in it's old garage (my parents moved a few months ago). Those are genuine framed dealer posters and a genuine working dealership Ford light.



Next sat next to what became our next project.




I don't have any underbody shots at all as I'm not into underbody restoration on an original car. I like them and if the car is a restoration or modified car then yes but not on this. This has all the original paint and sealer still there. Every year we have it put on a ramp and use a paint brush to put on a thin coat of clear wax oil and take off any excess so that it's protected but you can see its original. Dependant on work commitments I may get back up in march to do more work on it. If I do I'll take plenty other photos then.

Hope you all enjoy!

Wow! Nice to see an original mint example. Looks so fresh. I assume you let it stretch its legs and flex its muscles every so often. Nice to see it used and maintained so well. So many tucked away and hardly used.

Credit to you.

Lovely Jubbly, looking better every time I see this motor, I wouldn't be surprised if Ford weren't interested in having this one back to add to their collection. I don't think you will ever see the likes of this in present cars, as technology just moves on so fast these days, parts just wont exist in another 30 years, plus everything will be electric, and what confuses me, is where all this electricity is going to come from.

I have a friend with a red escort cosworth. Literally hasn't moved in 10 years. It's only done 10k and sits on carpet in the garage llandudno way. I only have 1 photo where I threw the cover off the rear corner. It's in showroom condition.

Added picture to my gallery

Hopefully this has worked!

Here's an old picture of dad's Monte at Castle Coombe I don't have any recent ones unfortunately.

His has all the options as well (ac,pas airbag and cd player.) no leather option on the monte.

Love the mini as well! Is it a 500? Super collectable as well
