New Cybox cat back system with a 3.5 inch rolled in slash cut tip.
Freshly refurbished standard rims with new Rain Sport tyres.
New bonnet pull inner cable and locking ring.
A/C needs gas refill.

What isn't listed was checked, ie rear trailing arm bearings etc, it's had a top to bottom-front to back inspection so I know this vehicle intimately you might say.


Underside is perfect, and if you know me and follow my FB page you'll know I'm always complaining about rust but this one at 49k is super solid with complete eiffels towers.
I've cleaned the underside and given it one coat of underseal as requested including inside the front arches.
Paintwork is far from perfect after being stored so it does need a respray but it's still presentable as is, condition of the panels are good, just small dints so a good body shop would pull all of those before paint, light bubbling on the front wings at the base above the sill, rear arches are spotless along with the sill end caps.
Headlights need a polish like most these days but all working correctly as are the rears and number plate lights.
Black trim and B-pillars need refurbishing, badges complete, rear quarter areas are all clean with no signs of bubbling, dull but working fuel filler cap with good seal.
Rear bumper exhaust exit has melted but this can be trimmed or repaired before paint, sills etc aren't colour coded so absolutely standard.


In need of a deep clean but the leather and stitching is good with little wear on the bolsters, drivers' side foam and rail needs repairing, passenger chair is very good, rear seats are perfect but when aren't they.
Consoles have had some of the sticky removed, ashtray door doesn't work, ciggy backlight doesn't illuminate but these are small things easily resolved, A/M head unit untested.
All electric work as they should, windows, mirrors etc, no key fobs and only the blue and shark keys, code card with blue folder including the service book in the glove box and an OE wheel locking kit with covers.
I have a box with some odds and sods like sub visors etc in the boot which will go with the car, the ones fitted have split, I'll also see if there are any fixing covers needed which I have in stock.

Back story:

This Coupe was transported to me from Jersey as a none runner, vehicle had been stored for many years and the project was to sort all and any mechanical issues, MOT and then plan a full respray.
Troubled times fell on the owner and they have given the vehicle to me as payment for all the work that's been done so the asking price is to basically covering the outstanding invoice, parts alone totalled £ 4,865.48 so it would be worth considerably more when finished imo.

It's registered in Jersey so I am now going through the motions with the DVLA forms to have it transferred on to a UK plate, those costs are incorporated in the asking price.

My MOT station was unable to log in with this vehicle because of it having a Jersey registration, he also tried the VIN number without any joy but a full test was carried out and it's ok, I don't get a certificate but I've scanned his test sheet along with emissions results.

I'd love to get this sold so if anyone fancies messaging me an offer I'd happily consider it.
