Well bought this Sprint on eBay two weeks ago and got completely carried away.

Now have a completely rust and filler free Sprint. Just put it back together.

Off to Inverness to pick up a set of new Sprint wheels.

Have photos of full restoration but will not upload.

Car is finished in Light Ivory rather than Honeysuckle very similar but a little less yellow, still a nice classic colour.

That looks like a lovely car, i think a nice set of sprint wheels would really set it off :)

Also, i think we all get a bit carried away with our cars, to my detriment!

Have fun :D

Got a great set of Sprint wheels, finishes off the car.

Been driving it daily as the LSD is great in ice and snow. Car has never missed a beat since buying it. Fuel consumption is very good also. Better than my old 1850.

Fitted a new interior mirror (from kitcar site, a little bit of filing, what a difference, sits in same place as original 9.99 for new mirror and 66p for 2 S/S button head machine screws 4/16".

Little bit more to do, I have made up a new lower front valance. Then fit spoiler, small section on rear sill not to happy with.

Car was always going to be a rolling restoration, love driving it. Previous owner had it set up on a rolling road you can tell it very snappy and always stars first time.
