    Thats staggering. Amazed by the detail though, paint spots and correct overspray. You'd need a matching beige anorak to go with it

    yep, 
    Imagine what they would want for it in a decent colour.
    Finish is perfect but I hate the brown .

    fair enough, I thought it strange to do such a thorough resto and then fit something as obvious as the blocks if they weren't factory.
    I know it's meant to look virtually new, but the ride height still looks a bit 4wd to me in some of the shots.
     
    Maybe I should paint the 4 door beige instead of blue.
    I'd be happy with 10K, let alone 100+

    NOOOOOOOOOO 
    Beige has no business being on any car especially something thats meant to be a sports model. 
    I suspect a purist will buy that one and lock it away in a collection. 
    I would strip it and paint it burnt orange .

    looks like it , Auction ended early and no longer available . 
    Does not surprise me , Quality was 100% and there is a wealth of collectors over there . 
    Makes me think it was an easy rebuild as no one ever used it being beige .
