LOSS OF STORAGE FORCES A RELUCTANT SALE OF MY TRUSTY TRIUMPH!!
Please can somebody caring take this off of my hands and finish off the few bits outstanding?
The Good News:
MOT'd & Tax'd until the end of the year.
Solid. original car with no evidence of major rot or repair.
Lots of parts fitted. Loads of paperwork. All the hard mechanical stuff has been done! Runs like a dream.
New Sports Exhaust fitted which sounds very raspy.
Luggage rack fitted.
Comes with Hard and Soft tops.
Cream Leather seats retro fit.
Brand New Mini-lites fitted last year.
Comes with some spares. most notably a fibre glass bonnet!
The Bad News:
Not much; all I have left is the tidying up of the paintwork and windscreen surround - that's it! She's had a respray in the past and most of the panels won't need painting. however. the front clam bonnet has an annoying dent in one side which would need either flattening and painting or - as I has intended - replacing with a fibreglass alternative (supplied). The sills are solid but there's one little bubble just beginning to appear on the rear arch so I would paint this ideally. too.
So there we are - a 'nearly there' car which would be an easy pick up and finish for anyone. It's totally usable as it is; I'm merely highlighting that it's not a show winner yet. However. I'm moving house and will lose the storage so I have no choice in the matter. A novice restorer would have no nasty surprises with this car and. should they not be able to paint the couple of areas I would personally choose to if I could finish this off. then I would probably suggest a long weekend in the shed with some decent polish or maybe even a vinyl wrap to disguise those last few bits; either way. she's so desperately close to being 'done' but I simply won't have the space to keep her in a few weeks.
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP AND ADOPT MY SPITTY??
Q & A:
In answer to some e-mails I've had. I can possibly help to arrange delivery of the spares/bonnet for those of you a little further away - feel free to message me if you want to discuss.
