Resto of Moonstone ( Finished 2014 ) #489

Recommended Posts

Most of you will remember this car or will have seen it for sale over the last year

 

The car was owned by Martin Johnston a few years ago and Martin modded the car and used it for things like Ten of the Best etc

 

Anyway i am putting the car back to near std so thought i would do a little thread

 

The car as it was

The clocks had this horrid metal look so back to std

 

I had to change over the speedo to keep the same miles on the new clocks

I agree, this car was always known as a top spec highly modded one, going to look lovely on them centrelocks.

I believe Terry Storey spent a fortune on the car before martin as well.

He sure did Paul

I think im going as std as poss under the bonnet , ie, red rocker cover , std hoses and air box , but powder coat the strut brace / alloy header tank all satin black ?

Sorry for the crap pics but its dark in the workshop at this time of year  :(

Well the dash is now completed , plus a few interior bits and bobs changed for better condition items

I just need to change the steering wheel for a mint std item now , but as i havent got one in stock the momo will stay for now

For some reason the bottom looks a different colour in the pics but fine in the flesh  :o

Having said that i did scrub the top section before fitting so a good clean on the bottom parts may help

A good polish on the outside has worked wonders  :)
