yes I bought it when working in Saudi Arabia, an '82 and I bought it in '83, it started life up where I was working in the southern Asir mountains of Saudi, 7000ft, so low humidity & no rust. Brought back to the U.K. in '86, used it till '89 when I shipped it to the Gulf as I got a job out there, intending to leave it there but the job failed and I brought it back to the U.K. in '90. Since then it's been stored in my garage with just two occasions when I put it on the road for a couple of months, it's had an easy life since leaving Saudi Arabia. While in Bahrain I did get the body resprayed as it was getting a bit faded. While using it in the U.K. I fitted a new Fairey Over Drive which makes a huge difference and gives you way too many gear options! I'm currently spending this winter preparing it for the road this year, just replaced all the spring bushes, fitted a complete new set of brake wheel cylinders and brake shoes too, now doing some minor bodywork stuff on stone chips. I'm not going to have a full repaint, just touch up the where the stone chips etc are because I want to keep it original as much as possible because my intention is to finally sell it probably in a couple of years. I'll post some pics of the seats etc.
