:wave: Hi All,

Just joined the group and it looks like a fun place to be - I think I recognise a few names form other groups too!

Mine is a very early D1 3.5 V8 Manual with Carbs (!) and I'm of the attitude that when bits fall off - if it still runs they stay off!

I have made a few cheap mods - lost all trim (even the paint) chopped the wheel arches off to add taller tyres (ground clearance is everything IMHO) - next is the lift I keep promising myself and even taller tyres!

Attached are a few photos - the only time it has ever been clean and a couple of the "school run" my daughter and I use during the summer!

Looking forward to the group!

Cheers,

Mark HH (AKA Holy)

It's not chrome - it is polished ally...

The finish is simple to say - bare polished aluminium - but a bitch to do...business was very very quiet at the time!

Cheers,

Hi Badger,

On and off it took about 3 months...!!!

The finish is as hard as nails though, but in hindsight I wouldn't recommend anyone else do it.

Cheers,

Mark HH

The thing is - I kept putting different vinyl graphics all over it, every few months or so I'd get bored and put a different design on it. I'm really bored with the "chrome" effect - but each time I try to think of what to do next I loose my bottle when I think of the time I spent.

I'm seriuosly thinking about Nato Sand and Black camo - have actually tried one door already!

Cheers...

What?! Don't cover that polished aluminum up! Think about all that time you spent on that.
