Nice Highway star!

I want your rear lights :)

Are you doing anything with the bodywork or leaving her as is?

Thanks for the compliment.
Re the rear lights, they are nice, struck lucky with those being fitted.
I intend to get the bumpers repaired (scuffed on all four corners and front cracked center right)
The dents on the nearside rear, i’lI remove the interior trim and see if I can them out. Can’t look any worse. Also got to try and fix the fuel gauge as it reads a quarter tank short. (Ran out of fuel when it read quarter full, brimmed the tank and it reads three quarters full).

Didn’t know the nearside was easier, good to know. Need to get a dd head unit sorted as well. Miss my Joe Satriani CDs.
And no you can’t have the rear lights, they are MINE.
Check out the 'how to' section for replacing the rear speakers, great guide for removing all the trim and seats to make it easier.
Nice looking Ellie with great potential to look awesome once you get stuck into it :)

Looks good.
If you're going to attempt the rear panel dent give it a good warm up with a hairdryer to stop the paint cracking and ease the metal.
Also, the fuel gauge should be an easy fix by repositioning the needle. Sounds like the sender is working. It's likely someone has had the dash apart and put the needle back on in the wrong position.

Hi Malcolm, thanks for the welcome. Its got the 3.5 v6 fitted. Almost as quick as my 3ltr v6 Jag S type. My brother has a V8 S type and that thing flies. The colour is growing on me. Not as common as the white (sorry guys).
