Somebody has put a glass sunroof in so it’s not worth restoring

Not what I hoped for but was 15 mins from me, and still a few quid to be made and some bits for mine

You don't need to break it, it is already pre broken!

Other than the glass and the GRP, what is recoverable from that? :w

Many thanks Speedy, we need to pin the photos.

When I, or anyone restoring their scimitar, feel down about what we've taken on we can now look at these photos and realise that ours are great! :lol:

The chassis just needs a wire brush and a bit of paint

:shock:
was this advertised as 'for restoration'

or somewhere reasonably dry to keep parts as it's a shed ? :wink:

are you planning on painting the wire brush??? cos that would be easier.
