Welcome aboard Jon.
That's a cracking looking car. I really like the period details great job.
I know how it feels with raised centres on roads, luckily only managed to scrape the exhaust which is quite common for underslungs.
Hope to see the car in the flesh at some point

Looks great, make sure you make the most of it before winter sets in proper!
Salt on the roads is no good for exposed ally parts, if you didn't already know.

Thanks Stu ...It's going on its holidays next week to Barcelona. The plan is to get over every month to enjoy it for long dry weekends with no frost. Also some great driving roads.
