looks respectable with a polish... but needs a passenger door and 2 rear wheel arches - if anyone can help - steel arches ?? - body next year project.
currently sourcing suspension bushes, ball and steering joints and brakes etc for underneath overhaul and MOT. will update as I go.

Lovely looking car, great colour on an s2 0-0
If you need arches there is a guy called Steve who makes panels, he sometimes puts them on e-bay but you can give him a ring 07815287018. I've had some panels off him and they are spot on.

Thanks Guys for the comments. Tool, my plans are to get the underneath mechanics all new and reliable and tidy all underneath as its stood near the coast for four years so a lot of surface rust on all the metal for this year, and enjoy driving it. Then I will sort out the body, most of it is very good, but it needs a total respray as various panels are all different shades .... so thanks, Keith for the arches info, I will give him a call, the body will be the winter project.
I do need a passenger door and the drivers seat lumbar area tatty so will need a new seat back / cover for that ... the Red Stripe pattern. But hope to catch up with some of the group at Shelsley in August to put some faces to names.

Hi Jim,
Car looks lovely, I have a Blue S3 but always thought your S2 wheels suited the Car more than the larger size S3 wheels, keep up the good work,
