cue topless nurse jokes...

that cream leather really is rather nice. All it really needs now is a gentle application of lower and some sparkly rims.

Oh and if the roof goes back on before the next snowfall god will kill a kitten

We all wanted to keep the classic look when we first got it - just give it time


storage wise..
I built a hardtop hanger for the princely sum of ?20(ish) without bothering to shop around. A couple of ratchet straps hung from the ceiling, two sturdy hooks in the wall for stability (they go through but don't touch the rear chrome catches) and you're done. you'll want to cover yours with a sheet or two though - unlike mine it has a nice shiny paintjob

Ok thanks, i bet get onto that.

Have bought from paint from mazda to touch in the few little scratches she has, then will clean and wax her, she should look the part then!

Don't listen to him he's talking out his poopipe, your car looks fanfooooooookintastic as is


Start faffing with suspension and bolting heavy wheels on and it'll ruin the delicacy of how the car handles.

Honestly don't think i've seen a NB in that colour before.

Looking Good Lara, nice to see you got the hardtop off. What's the softop like underneath?

Hardtops are nice for only one thing. Putting on the floor of your garage!!

About time that top came off!

I almost bought a Montana in that colour before i found my Sport. Looks lush but not sure i`d be able to keep the interior clean very easily.

BTW...Hows your coolant leak?

Ive checked the coolant everyday and its at the same level, engine temp has ben fine too. They drove the ca down from Scotland after its service and have never checked the coolant level so i guess it was the airlock.

The interior is dead easy to keep clean being leather, ive only had cloth interiors before, wouldnt have cream interior other than leather!!

Well I've had the car two weeks and havent been to Portsmouth but the previous owners lived in Southampton.
