Looks bob on - I like! Great work mate. I've got a real soft spot for a silver Mk2 3.0S. My Dad had one, my first ever car journey from hospital as a new born was in it

Once again, fantastic looking car.

I'm not sure how far off done you are, but there was a journo looking for a Mk2 3.0S for a shoot and comparison against a Scimitar, I'll dig the link out if that's something that may be of interest to you.

Hi,
Superb! I love the underside view, it's immaculate.
I'm guessing the car passed with no advisories?

Looks like rust to me .. ;) . Seriously, this is a great restoration, its brilliant to see a car come together & this has been one of the most enjoyable to follow. Good luck with the snag list, hope you get to enjoy your hard work on the road this year. :applaud:

I did wonder about that, but felt it was best not to mention it..... :) Glad you cleared that up!
I love the attention to detail on this resto. I notice that you've even got the little axle ratio tag on the axle. Was that the original one that was still on the car or did you get a replica made?
