Greetings from Vancouver, BC, Canada. Found this gem in Japan, AND it is a LHD! with 46,000 original KM. So far, I had the following done:
Refinish the black leather seats to remove some cracking.
New rubber all around
custom stainless steel exhaust (from headers to tail, no cat and just one sound box) yes...it sounds awesome
new timing belt, water pump and all pulleys
new thermostat
Personal steering wheel (colour coordinated)
new steering fluid hose
new temp sensors and fan relays
new wiper motor and wiper blades
new brake rotors (cross-drilled) and pads (to be installed)
new overflow tank (to be installed)
...the list goes on.

It is one of hand full of 3.0 V6 24V in Canada.

First wash

Gave the spider its first wash today in 2017. As the car is stored outside under a full cover the only thing to do was to remove a bit of white mold on the roof liner and seat belt straps. Cleaned with white vinegar to remove and all is well.

Going to Halfords to stock up on a few cleaning items and take it for a run to check everything is running ok.

GTV 3.0 V6

I have these blue leather seats in my ph1 Spider, which look slighlty differrent to any other Spider/GTV seats that I've seen. The padding is also lot firmer compared to the Momo seats in my GTV V6. Does anyone else have these seats in their Spider?

Car up on the ramp tomorrow at the garage so will take some pictures hopefully, also I will be collecting finally the second-hand hood which I bought last year. it's not perfect but should be better than the one fitted now.

I have also been tempted by the Bodyshop guy next to the garage who has given me a keen price for a full respray!!!!

Anybody want a PH1 rear bumper? Currently in Proteo Red but it's a very poor paint job by the previous owner so will need a respray. Some scuff marks on the lower driver's side but nothing too serious. No cracks. Free to anybody who wants to collect it.

Hi

These seat look great!!, I think they have been reupholstered at some point, as I've never seen any seats like.

Could well be, the stitching looks different. Just had a look at the invoice from Edwards in Epsom Surrey when the car was purchased secondhand in 1999 for 18k. The leather seats are listed as extra, although there's no cost for this or any mention about reupholstering, plus there's an additional 145 for door cards to be re-leathered.
