Thanks for the update Des.
Judging by your collection of cars now I'm not surprised you are busy :lol:

The 3.0S is a great addition to B100 (Not jealous at all) :crying:

Look forward to lots of pics when possible :wave:

:goodluck:

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...

Hi Des,
Superb! I can see that both you and Steve are going to a lot of trouble to get all the little details spot on. This is going to be one amazing car when it's finished.

Exquisite.

I'd be afraid to drive it after all that attention to detail. Beautiful job.

Hi Andrew, we certainly are trying and I think it will turn out as one of his best when done. I'm still looking for one or two items but even though we have come a long way from our original plans I refuse to pay ridiculous prices for parts...

That thought has passed through my mind on more than one occasion Paul :D

I know there's dust on the rear axel but you get the idea lol...

Once done she will be off to the detailer for a full paint detail possibly a ceramic paint protection etc then back for the exhaust, body trim and decals to fit.

Incredibly beautiful! Even in the photos we can see that is a really deep shine to the flawless paintwork. I've said it before, but it's worth repeating…..superb! 8-)
