I have Just bought this from forum member benspray, he's local to me and  we both know each other from two land rover clubs we are in, he's generally been a bad influence on me! with his cool toys so when he told me that this one would be leaving his "fleet", and with my wifes birthday coming up I couldn't help but jump at the oppurtunity to take it on.

its a 1983 but with a mk1 style grille fitted and mk2 rear lights to give a retro look, it was restored a couple of years ago, and has been fitted with a goldseal A+ engine, MG Metro style alloy rocker cover, HIF44, K&N filter, LCB, stainless single box RC40 exhaust, lowered on genuine Hi los, its got fully adjustable tie rods and lower arms, rear camber/castor etc and is all setup for fast road use, genuine cooper s brakes, 10" mamba alloys, and recently fitted halogen crystal style headlights.

 

I'm Well chuffed with it, and hopefully when my Mrs gets it for her birthday so will she be, having previously owned (and loved) a 1992 cooper.

 

until this evening it had tatty cobra classic style seats which A) I couldnt fit in, B) were very tatty, but my father in law had a spare set from his mini based kit car donor vehicle which will do for the time being.

I've also taken out all of the carpets and attacked the really nice solid floor pan with wire brush and some kurust style stuff to get rid of the surface rust, next I'll attack it with some hammerite and then put the carpets back in.

Spent a few hours yesterday cleaning the car and getting all the bird droppings off the paintwork, painting up the floor pan where I had kurusted yesterday and then decided to take a few pictures! :D
