Nice place you have got but the upkeep must be a bit of a challenge

Great finish, must give mine another go!
I’ve not seen an e85 with tan leather before? It looks pretty similar to mine :?

Great job - looks awesome. Was this bought from another forum member, name G-something? Think it’s my favourite si roadster out there. :thumbsup:

Yes...GJC72, but it went to another owner after him and disappeared off the forum.
