So its been a while since I've added anything to the blog. The car was finished in October. Just in time for winter in Ireland. With crappy weather and salted roads here, I've only managed 200 miles in 5 months. Though the weather is finally starting to get better and the car is finally being driven!
The car was lucky enough to be featured on the cover of Retro Classics magazine. (Irish car mag)
I plan to take it to plenty of shows this summer. First show is this weekend,
Got some pictures of the cars interior back from the restorer. They look amazing, the colour should look great against the Bristol Grey. The armrests on the door cards were sprayed, looks like he did a great job colour matching. I'm also loving the Recaro logo pressed into the leather.
Got new photos today from the garage. The car is finally painted and looking good!
Next step is going through all the parts we have and figure out what we still need. Its going to be a massive jig saw puzzle and is one of the many downsides of buying a restoration project that someone else has taken apart.
Welcome to my 1971 2002 tii restoration project. I already have a build thread on the 02 UK forum but I thought I would share my restoration with the faq crowd as well. My name is Chris and I live in Northern Ireland. I have owned the car since April 2015.
I had always loved the 02's though never thought I would buy one. 02's are very rare in Ireland especially tii's. I have literally only seen 3 other tii's in Ireland. One is owned by a guy called Jay who I met on the UK forum. Turn
