Another amazing resto completed now. Congrats mate.

What's next?

C'mon, leave the Sprints alone. Ok, so maybe not a FWD but have a go at another model?

SENSATIONAL! I suggest a white Sprint next as there seem to be loads for sale recently that need a resto...

OMG....Fantastic job mate. Have to say that it's my colour. Brings back memories of Ed Bishops 'Purple Power' Sprint.

will have to make time to get to see in the flesh.

Regards

Stunning, unbelievable job Mart.

Of course, the windscreen is the best bit :wink:

Have just seen THJ in the metal. Wow, wow, wow. What a beautiful job.

Mary said the bodywork still needs a few bits doing. Similarly, Tess Daley could do with getting her nails done :lol:

I think you can officially post an avatar of THJ in the blank box with the question mark now (It's beginning to look like a Sprint hall of fame) =D>

Tess has great nails, but the Magenta car is closer to perfect than her, I suspect. :D

Absolutely stunning.

Do a mallard one next.

Should a N plate Sprint have the chrome/stainless cill top trims? If you want some I have some spares...and bresco do the clips, which match Rover P6 ones.
I havent refitted mine cos they are rust points.

Thanks Jon. Yes it should have the sill/cill top trims. I have the clips but not the trims. I'm not sure if I want to put them on anyway, it looks ok without them. If I do change my mind it won't take long to fit them. :D

Another stunner indeed! I wasn't sure about the colour, but it looks fantastic now.

I think the airbox is the best bit. :wink:

Ice blue next? (No need to specify model)

I think I have some, if you do decide you want them.
