You got a link to it?

Know how you feel though, i sold my old blue 5 few years ago now and it looked lovely. Saw it at Ace Cafe about 18months later and all i can say was i was embarrassed to say i built it, it was a right mess.

If it makes you feel any better, I was going to buy this and do a factory restoration on it, as it's in my area. But it was sold which annoyed me that I hadn't thought to look on gumtree before!
