One of the new ones will probably be green, very green.
Another new one is green too but not as green as the previous one. Still pretty green.
The other new one will be white with stripes. Actually it might not. No, it will be.
BUT, that one is definitely Yellow :=}

I get numb in my guts when I see something like this where people can identify and recall such details about their or other members' cars. You in the UK are so lucky to have such a well organised system where you can check with a DVLA, where people care enough to actually respond. If I had to post a pic of the 2.5S I have owned since 1981, which I have driven all over the country, maybe the bloke from whom I bought it might recognise it. I suppose I must add that since the registration system was not well thought through for starters, the system had to be adapted to suite computerised systems, new provinces, overcrowding etc. Anyway, we have advantages....long open sweeping roads with places where one can give your car some wellie and not run into law enforcement. Anyway, I lived in your country for 10 years and have such pleasant memories. My only regret is that I didn't indulge myself into more track days, motor shows etc. Happy motoring, and congrats on your beautiful yellow Sprint. We didn't get them in SA.

Getting the boot rubber to lie down while I put Evo-Stick on it was a challenge.

Cat food was a bit wide...

We usually do our boot rubbers on the spare bed. :oops:

A few new bits to put on, the headlights are benefiting from a couple of home made items.

Still attaching bits, using up all our Bank Holiday.
Fail on the sticking of the bonnet seal so far, not sure what to do next on that, EvoStik sticks to car but not seal.
Trims looking good.
Lighting wiring refurbed.
Rear Lights in but Head Lights still waiting for some small clips.... Getting nervous here the MOT is due.
Heads down for Tatton next weekend.

Which clips do you need? Try some High Temp contact adhesive, it sticks to anything. Comes in a tin from Martrim etc. I may have some still.

Hmmmmm, Martrim? A quick trip during Half Term possibly.

Thanks Mark.

Now I have a small problem,
two designs of sticker - which do I use? Top or bottom? (We also have the late one as used on Paul's car).
