Thanks for the comments everyone although i can't take any credit for the way it looks, that'll be down to the previous owners.
r5gtt08, i'd rather not say, it was quite a lot but with only 14k on the clock i thought it was a fair amount. The original plan had been to get a fairly good one and then rebuild it but after talking to Mark fish about the costs involved(a lot of the work i would have had to have done for me) i thought it would be better to go for this and put my money into keeping it looking as good as it does.
It's totally standard/original and it's going to stay that way, there are a couple of things that need doing, a few chips the battery tray is reverting to it's original state and the ream beam/suspension needs the full rust treatment.
The only thing that i was thinking was a change of wheels, i want to keep the originals with the tyres but i want some stickier rubber, responsible hooning does not appeal on 20 year old rubber :)
Any suggestions anyone?

Your stuck with Uniroyal Rallyes in the original size, not to bad in the dry but i don't rate them in the wet.

You have more choice with 185/60's.

Don't think it's going to be seeing much rain :)

It will be a garage queen over the winter, i have a Clio Trophy and a daily but i do want to be able to use it to it's full potential as well when i can.

hey!  I have been waiting for these pics ;)  how did I miss this thread!   :shock:

 This is without doubt...  (in my opinion) THE BEST OE 5 GT TURBO in the galaxy..and only 14k miles.  I am really pleased its in your safe hands...and ur keeping it original and just tidying up any small marks.  

  This reminds me of my friends brothers 5 and was the 1st one I ever saw (in white also)...  it was love at 1st sight  :lol:

 I think the price u paid is extremely good value as you would have to spend far more 'doing up' a less tidy example and it still wouldnt be like this one...u must be well happy with it!  8)  A genuine step back in time.

 keep us posted with it... never sell it!  8)

 (next time its out and about can u take some side on pics  :wink: )
