Fabulous example indeed and I sure bet it shames most, if not all cars down your street.

This IS the place to show off your handiwork, so if someone doesn't like it then they can always look elsewhere.

Most recent decent interior pics are of its 2016 agreed insurance valuation. Not a huge amount to write home about on the inside tbh; typical 80s grey plastic. First thing I ever get asked at a car show is "does it still have the talking dash pal" but the digital 'talking' dash that shall we say 'more senior' folks remember from the very earliest MG Maestros was discontinued as an option five years before MG Turbos were made.

Photos were taken in August 2016 on an overcast day, which was actually very good really because they weren't shadowy or too contrasty. Car was wearing Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax, which I never fully got on with, because like most Meguiar's liquid sealants, the carrier always seem to leave a cloudy haze on the panels which needs detailer to clean off. Their paste waxes never have this problem however, and I've been a satisfied long time user of both #16 and #26

More pics so you young 'uns can revel in the 80s-ness and you not so young 'uns can, well, relive the 80s-ness:

Thanks Danny. Put on nearly another 100 miles since those photos though, so I've seen the clock read '30xxx' for the last time.
