Got my Second Spider, only the roof to sort.
Been looking for another Phase 2 spider for quite some time after getting rid of my last one. I replaced the last one with a Mercedes 280SL convertible and just absolutely hated it, thought it would grow on me and the reverse happened, the more I drove it the more I knew I wanted another spider. My last spider was rough, it was a cat D, I got it cheap had some fun in it and even did the Crumball Rally last year.
I knew this time round that I wanted something with all original condition, low mileage, full service history, no keys missing and of course not an insurance write off.
Not only did I find that car but I picked ip up remarkably cheaply because the electric roof isn't working. Bar some lacquer peeling on the roof hatch this thing looks and drives like new. It's done 75k with full documented history and was registered in 2000
Jobs to do are:
1. Fix electric roof
2. Fix original stereo and install a Motorola TK30 blue tooth kit
3. Replace rear plastic window.
I'm hoping the roof is something simple, the nearside roof hatch latch is not locking so the hatch sticks up a bit on that side. Anyone else had problems with these cable operated roof latches?
