I literally cant wait to see some colour on this car after all your work, plus the colour is such a rare thing on the Clubby's these days

We could combine postage the amount we’ve all had from minispares recently aha! Minis are like pets, constant attention and money but worth it aha! Picked you engine up yet? Excited to see that in!

I have a week off in May so if I can have the underneath stonechipped and body colour I can think of sending it to my nephew, then it's putting it all back together :-)
