The paint needs minor attention in places, there are some blisters and early signs of rust bubbles, but absolutely nothing serious. In 2000 was completely stripped. Nut and bolt rebuild into a 1998 bare shell and sub-frame, seam welded. Zeemax 'CS' Body Kit, Paul Smith Blue (genuine limited edition colour), new rear sub-frame and refurbished front sub-frame.
The rear seats are missing, as Porsche electric seats have been fitted, so you will need to carpet the back, or maybe make a shelf? Porsche electric seats, new door cards and carpets, Momo steering wheel, alloy pedals, custom dashboard, 3-dial instrument cluster, alloy door furniture.
The engine runs but needs a tune-up as the idle is high and I think it is running a bit rich, but it passed the emission test OK.

Omega Pistons, 1.5 Ration Roller, Gas-flowed and ported head, 1 ¾” SU carb with K&N Filter, unleaded valve seats, enlarged exhaust valves, Kent 286 Cam, Lightened flywheel, balanced, hardened and lightened crank, uprated radiator, twin cooling fans, MG Metro turbo oil cooler, MG Metro Turbo Clutch, uprated engine mounts, electric fuel pump, twin DTM centre-exit exhaust with enlarged centre silencer (rather loud!!!)

All bills. for rebuild present. This car was built in 2000 from a 1998 shell and has had hardly any use since. It was used for special occasions up to 2012 then put away and was recently recommissioned with a new MOT.
