Tom, that file's on your hard drive which the rest of us don't have access to!

Post the picture to webspace or an image hosting service like Photobucket etc, then use the [IMG] button to link to it.

This is how mine looked in Jan 2008 after a very expensive visit to ML Motorsport and Plamer Bros.

Image

Image

Unfortunately while the body was now ace, the mechanicals sucked. So it currently it looks a bit more like this:
Image

Looking to have it back on the road in about 2 months now to get to some summer shows. Will have a different engine, uprated braked and a different wiring loom. Bit's have been reconditions others haven't and might not be in the lust for a runner.

Very funny! :tongue: I got it couple of months ago after deciding Id been out of the game too long! I got it for and absolute song on ebay, and it was very exciting (as I dont get out much) because I had it delivered and it came on a 2 storey truck with a Lambo Diablo replica above it!

Hah! She encouraged me to buy the last one (1275GT), even helped source it and went with me to fetch it! She got two rabbits in return...

I did have seven at one point. In fact at its peak we had a total of 15 cars in the drive & gardens!

You know, I don't actually know what colour it is. The original colour is a kind of beige and I don't even know what that is, but the green could be anything. Brookland Green is the nearest I've seen so far. However now you mention it I've looked it up hereand there are two colours with a similar name. BMC "Green Mallard" looks too dark, but Triumph "Mallard Green" may be close.
Since I don't know, the car is going to get a complete paintjob in a colour that I can identify!
