  2. I wish i could mellonman.- Peter he is asking £7500 for it.-Gaz i know it had some paint work done after i owned it so maybe not perfect in the colour match i would like to guess, you can see from the spats that were added after i sold it are a little out, it was possibly the cleanest car i had ever owned:(.-Ben do the active lip!

  3. Anyone missed me?? Well i am still supraless , but now have two Lovely little girls:)....how life has changed for me!! I still look at them and have just found my old one for sale on pistonheads:thumbs:, its being sold by a trader in essex. Added a pic of the ol girl to remind you all.....

Cold start switch is a two terminal block either blue or black.
  11. As a pair £100.... Nic used to get these I believe?
  12. What happened fella, didnt poison yourself with your cooking did you?
