I got the A35 out today and gave it a good run Smile





























I love this car, it's definitely a keeper Very Happy There's just a few little jobs to do on it now, another oil change, get the wheels blasted, powdercoated and painted in the original shade of Court Grey, new front door seals (any luck finding those NOS ones Rick?) and possibly a better rear bumper if I can find one cheap enough.

As it was my birthday today, I decided to treat myself to this lovely NOS radiator muff on Ebay -



Looking forward to it arriving!

Hippo Bathday! Smile

Not been a bad day, at least it's been dry.

Don't neglect the Crab (or the forum) though. Wink

Wanna buy an A30 to go with the 35? Chap just down the road has one in his back garden.

I must dig out those furflex door trim things, I did see them the other day. Not sure if they're for a 4dr or 2dr though, I'll see what part nos are on the boxes. Great little car that Smile

I wish I could say yes, but I need to be thinning down the fleet, not adding to it Sad There's an AS3 for sale on the A30/35 site that I was tempted by, local too, sadly no space Sad

Thanks, much appreciated. As far as I know the 2dr ones are identical, just a bit longer! I can easily cut them down if needs be Smile

Its looking good now and that new paint on the wings looks good too, I love photo's no. 4, 5 and 6 as it looks like you've set it on a fast tick over dropped it in gear and its driving down the road on its own first towards you then past you and finally away from you, I can almost see you running off down the road after it before it gets to far away.

Got the A35 out today, cleaned the dust off it and the rubbish out of it, changed the leaking heater hose, took it for a run and took some pictures Smile

All these great pictures are making me want another A35 Very Happy

Sadly I've lost contact with the new owner, but I know he's on the roads...

It was BAS 595 - non-transferable too, so it should still be that.
Originally lightish blue, the previous owner hammeritted it black... Very little wrong with it mechanically, we overhauled the brakes completely, ignition barrel was a bit dodgy, had to wiggle it about abit. Massive heater that killed the engine if you used it.
Some dreadful photos:

Hi
Nice photos Rich, but didn't your mum explain about the birds and bees?

One of them is a chap and the other one is a chapess. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing
