So the car needs no introduction and those of who know it well will know that I regretted selling her.

Wasn't really used much and left sat as you'll see from the photo's, boy was it in a mess, debris in areas I'd never imagined there'd be, paintwork pretty much needs a whole respray, ecu was all loose from when it was moved to replace the cambelt/water pump, bolts I purchased from pro-bolt for the top mounts/strutbrace were missing and replaced with pretty much any type of bolt and done up so tight they sank into the liquid yellow paint.

Anyway I got in touch with the owner asking if he was still looking to sell it as he had been thinking about selling it for some time, my brother who was at the time also looking for a 180 was told and the next thing we know my brother had bought my old 180 Very Happy

It's currently in storage at present as he is looking to completely restore it including full respray.

When the car was picked up, these were the worst areas imo

 


 


After a good clean but needs respraying as mentioned and a lot of parts replaced

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


Can't wait to help work on the car and get it back on the road!!

Welcome back (again).

If it is really in that much of a state, mine must be getting somewhere near there as (apart from when I have been working on fixing it) it's been sat around since 2018.

Bet lots of memories came flooding back.... ?

..couple more Franco/American-made/owned ones, journey depending

Cheers Iain, brother has since purchased another 2 180's, agean blue and red 180.

He's currently restoring the red 180 and my old 180 we'll be hopefully restoring together.
