Just back from the body shop after full windows out external repaint in original Guards Red. The car required two replacement front wings as the originals had been accident damaged at some point in the cars history. The opportunity to replace the windscreen whilst the original was taken as the original had started to delaminate. Wheels were powder coated in silver with new centre caps, new side bump strips and original style decals fitted.

Car is now in for MOT and a tidy up of the interior and engine bay is next on the to-do list.

Looks great. Nothing like having fresh paint.

I let the body shop take care of everything including strip down and preparation. Any new parts they needed I sourced myself and provided though. They really went above and beyond, for instance the headlight washer plumbing had been previously removed at some point, I supplied the necessary parts and they plumbed it all back and working.

... retro Blaupunkt Bremen SQR46 installed today, the car only has rear speakers installed but sounds good using the original speakers so will leave as is.

Nice radio... never seen one with green display, I thought they were all orange.

I looked at BP's latest models, but plumped for a one with Alexa control, Android etc. Never switch it on :lol:

When I test drove my car, I think it had an old Panasonic in it, with cassette player, probably original. When I picked it up, it had a modern-ish Kenwood in it. I think the guy thought he was doing me a favour. I bet he chucked the Panasonic. Might see if he still has it....

:beer:

... I’m pretty sure you can change the display colour on the Bremen SQR46 just haven’t figured out how to yet! My car had a Blaupunkt San Remo when I bought it, in generally good condition and at one point thought about having it converted to accept a jack lead to use with an iPhone but glad I bought the Bremen in the end.

All my music is in the ether now. I don't even know where my old CD's and tapes are - probably under several metres of landfill by now. Nothing better than hooking up my entire collection on shuffle when on a road trip :cool:
