I have had the car a little over a month and need to sprinkle it with a little love!!

Wish/To do List:

Replace headlights

Replace Indicators

Replace OSR light cluster

Replace/repair both rear arches

Replace exhaust

Replace bearings (all)

Replace brake pads and fluid

Front seat bolsters re-padded

Rear cards refurbished

Parcel shelf rubber thing replaced!

Driver and Passenger door handles replaced

Replace spot lights (lens fell off of one when I picked it up!)

So far I have 2 brand new headlights (£33 incl postage!)

Going for a Jamex exhaust full system as I want a new manifold & I cannot get a standard one...

The pic attached shows the condition of the body work when I got it and bearing in mind it is only 65k miles it was very dull until I had a go with safe cut and a polisher.

Watch this space if your interested...

Anyone knowledgeable about these cars/ bits I want to do please let me know your thoughts as I have not played around with these for 20 years!!

I will be watching with great interest having had a really nice one of these back in the late 80's. It was white with the RS Turbo Body Kit, Peko exhaust system, and the Ford Motorsport (Blue and silver Tiger Stripes) Colours with the Ford Motorsport logos running along the bottom of the doors.

I loved that car. So much fun to drive and very quick.
