Looks nice that, but is the thicker stripe supposed to be on the top side??

The next set I do though, I'll bring it a couple of inches further forward on the wing

I was going to mention that. Should be something like 1-1/4" to 1-1/2" roughly from the front of the wing.

Looks good, surely that's not the same car that was at the NEC? If so, you've done a bunch of work. Respect!

Err, no. There has been insufficient time between then and now to get the NEC car to half this standard!

It will probably either be auctioned, or sold on the basis of sealed bids.

It now has an MoT fail, despite my having managed to get all of the electrics working. The brakes went spongy on the way to the test station, it was the first opportunity to road test the car although I had been going up and down the garage block where it is kept and had been locking the wheels with a good pedal prior, so excessive pedal travel was a fail point. One headlight unit is too dim, and there were about half a dozen areas of corrosion which need attention; NSR jacking point, NSF cill closure within wheel arch, OS chassis leg on the flat underside, both front floor pans need small plates and the OSF flitch to the vertical sections adjacent the subframe mountings.

Because the car is kept in a lock-up with no electricity, I'll have to farm the welding out, but if I go to that expense to MoT the car then it will go on ebay. I am however open to offers for it as is, though I'd stress I'm not obliged to accept any offer or the highest.

Happy to receive expressions of interest or requests to view. It is far from a perfect example, but a good solid basis for a rolling restoration: an improver...

As a guide, that yellow Sprint which had been off the road for 7 years (which didn't have the benefit of a fail sheet) finished at auction last week at £3900.
