Hello all.  Bob from belfast.  have owned a 1994 tahiti blue sprite since I was 17.  Drove it daily for 3 years.  Then leant it to my dad (who took it to london to live for the next 5, then came back to northern ireland where she has been safely parked up in a shed for just over a decade.


So I decided what with turning 36, and a month out from getting married, to dig the old girl out and see whats what. 


Some mice have got at the wiring loom (all repaired now and thankfully not too bad)


Bit of rust as expected and a goosed heater matrix meant a bit of work will be needed on the floor pan in the not too distant future, But hopefully enough to get through MOT before I go about restoring to former glory.


For now, Some pics!
