tks for your imput m8s ..
the Sud will be rolling out of the garage tomorrow onto a flatbed and getting it 'home' (as we were doing that work at my friends garage .. not free but reasonably hehe .. still costs rise).
at my garage i will now prepare it for the spray job that will be done next door (pro sprayer).
will take a couple of pics looking like a real car now with doors, mudguards and bonnet all on and aligned.
mods : hmmm MOSTLY original but it will have 14" Ti alloys, Ti front lights and indicators in bumper like Ti, Ti rear spolier (Series 3), Ti water and oil pressure gauges in their proper place, and a QV leather steering wheel. the bumpers are going to be sprayed red like the car retaining the black strips and the side mirrors will be red too apart from the black surround.
windscreen and doors weather rubbers are all original and fully saved, cleaned and 'softened' with Wurth silicon spray. the boot and under-bonnet ones will be renewed
i think it will look cool .. better be !! i stopped counting $$$$
