Unfortunatly not long after these were take my painter was struck with the dreaded C and so the scort took low priority and was pushed into a corner with a sheet thrown over it

Thankfully my mate has made a significant improvment and is wanting to get back to work soon

you should really restore it to standard it would be more interesting and quirky? everyone's gone down the mod route of 4 doors.would probably get a lot of attention in standard form.
