Thats a great idea, maybe convoy there also? Talk closer the time.

Cosmetically she's not perfect at the moment, but by May I might have it painted ready for the summer

I know the cup doesn't have a significant anniversary but it would be good to get say, 10 together. The GTV is such a beautiful thing and with a bit of tinkering good fun too.

They could do with a lick of paint !!

Easy to do when I refurb the wheels and fit new tire at a later date.

Get Ned to sort the front bumper irons too as it's almost certain they will be seized solid. It will help greatly when it all goes back together.

I also think a 3.7 conversion should be done while the engine is out.

in all seriousness while its out get some powder coating done! I am going to do that next year when it has a cambelt/Clutch.
