Thanks for the welcome guys.
I have uploaded some images of the GTV in the just bought state ... awaiting the moderator to approve.
With the Christmas festivities and the weather being awful, rain and wind, I haven't had chance to do anything to it yet.
The first job I need to do is replace the two flexi pipes on the exhaust system before putting it on a diagnostic machine (my brother has a mate who owns one
). The car is under performing and I think the MAF might also need changing ... I will have to wait and see what the diagnostics show.
The passenger door window is not sealing correctly. I hope I get the adjustment right first time and not be there all day!
Then all it needs is a valet and a shine. The paintwork is in excellent condition with just a couple of minor swirl marks, nothing the DAS polisher won't sort out. I hope to get it back to better than showroom condition.
I tell a fib. The offside back bumper has been cracked and repaired (not very well but nothing Dents Away can't handle) by the one previous owner, a sixty six year old genuine guy who has told me everything about the car.
I will post more pics as I do the work.
