Got the right colour this time Ritchy, must be hard deciding which ZS to take out. Economy v Power, ummm, power wins I reckon.

thanks guys:)
haha yes the canoe peter mentioned that before haha, its still very much in its early stages of getting restored, new bumper should be here today and put some new badge inserts in the other day, and stuck some new plates on, then removing the current backbox and fitting a janspeed inwardly rolled one instead, then need to get to the bottom of a small misfiring issue which pops up time to time which im not seeing as a big problem,
be fitting new pads all round, may do the belts, im getting standard rims for it off goldie(got the car from him) and hes taking the team dynamics, may coat the new rims black if money allows as i like the yellow black colour combo, then who knows, may keep it or likely sell it, shall be a spring project mainly though

Looks to be a nice early example! Sept 2001 isn't too long since they were launched?

well not much has been happening with this for a while, i moved the car up the back of the garden before we had all the wind and it had been sitting for a month or so, so i had a peak the other day, and to my disapointment...mould...seems the aerial base is leaking,
anyway after a bit of jumpstarting it fired straight up yesterday and i managed to get it out the garden,



and set about stripping out the interior, only done the back seats, the floor mats and the boot carpet so far, but i took them into work and gave the seats a proper vax out in the valet bay, then i steam cleaned the mats and boot carpet and vaxed the, too, seats have come up great, nice and clean look new



so just going to leave them out just now, strip the front seats and floor carpet out do the same, amazing how much dirt comes out of seemingly clean interiors, so this will be a treat for whoever the new owner is

i charged the battery up last night on trickle charge, and today i refitted the new front bumper, and removed the latches, cleaned and greased them so they work properly now,
starteing to look a bit more together
