  2. Well, started giving the interior a bit of a clean while I decide what's going to be done first. Have a look at what I found!!! A photo of another Sport being worked on.
  3. Thanks mate. As I said earlier, bring on the cruising around Welly!
  4. I bought that book last month and it arrived here on Thursday. Perfect timing!!! Might just take you up on the 1.6 badge and I really appreciate the links. Where would be the best place too for the decals?
