Lovely work.

On a side note, I can genuinely say that the Sapphire Cosworth that I owned for about a week was the most disappointing car I ever owned. If it wasn’t for the fact I made a bit of money on it, it would be one of my worst car purchases ever.

The fact I got utterly raped on insurance for it as I had my 17 year old girlfriend on it , having just passed her test, may be a factor but it really wasn’t a car that gave me enjoyment, not a patch on a Renault 5 GT Turbo.

When she told me she’d left college ‘sideways’, I knew it was time to bin it off as she couldn’t drive for toffee.

Looks great

What did you use to dress the interior and stalks they look good.

Also how did you get them seats like that is it just a wet and dry vac ?
