Alright Mick,

Did you manage to get that MG shifted then?


Oh yes it drove me mad and half bald ,i would definately say no if anyone tryed giving me one for free . :lol:

That does not look in too bad a nick. Good luck with the work, if it all goes to plan there could be a few "new" A's at Billing next year.

Looking forward to it ,nice too see them :D

I seem to remember saying the same thing and missed by a year and a half. Good luck with the project


Cheers ,thinking of moving into unit to make sure its done :lol:

Looks absolutely fantastic thumbsup.gif Great project !

Also i think that this project really shows that even though the car is looking like its in good shape, this is really the right time to strip it down, and give it a makeover. Waiting will just make everything worse wink.gif
