Re: B100CNH... The journey begins..

Hi Des Due to the standard of the car, any trim parts that aren't perfect will stand out now, so you've made life a little difficult for yourself :lol: Andy Thanks Andy, it's a complete pita that can test your sanity but you have to stop somewhere and make the best of what you have until you eventu...

Re: Lowering pictures....

Well that has made a real positive difference Nick, in other words it looks fantastic and no doubt will improve again once everything has settled in. Sounds like you were really pleased with the ride home and bet you couldn't get the smile off your face knowing you... Well done tickover :cool:

Re: B100CNH... The journey begins..

Fully rebuilt engine back with us and painted by Steve, rocker covers to channge but engine going in as pic below... You get a better idea of the real engine grey in the second pic. There isn't a colour code as he spent a small fortune colour matching to an original engine with very, very low miles....

My 3.0s paint correction...

I wasn't happy with the paint work and after 37 years of life it was time to give it a spruce up, full of swirls, marks and scratches but now it's touched up as required and 100% better IMO. It has had paint flashed down the sides (not very well done I might add) at some stage but she will do for no...

Evening guys, My apologies for not updating both B100 and I are well and I'll be back soon with a full update. It's been a busy few months but the engine should be back from its full rebuild within the next 10 days then it's full steam ahead. Thanks all for the kind thoughts and Nick for the kind co...

Re: 3.0S on carandclassic

That looks to be a great buy Des! Andrew. Hi Andrew Yes I certainly think it is, I've been looking for a very late 3.0s in black for years and finally this came on the market. As always with people like us there are things to do but it's a genuine matching numbers car with what I believe to be genu...
