This is my 827 Sli manual Fastback, it has been in my wife and I's hands for the last 8 years and is now going to be restored/fixed up as it has got to the point where we either spend money or loose him.
We Love Him
The Engine : we had the cambelt changed about 3 years ago and apart from the trusty tappet rattle is sound, he just wants to loose me my licence
Rust on both front and rear wheel arches and at bottom of bootlid
Generally tired appearance
Interior shabby, though leather
I have purchased a doner vehicle and that is going to give me the front wings, newer lights, bootlid, and asssorted doors etc.
I have purchased a newer leather interior with memory seats (which we have always wanted) from Peter Simpson (ex Practical Classics Editor) .
I have purchased a new Saloon rear quarter panel to get the passenger wheel arch fixed and I think the drivers side can be ground back and leaded.
I am not going to aim to create a perfect 1993 example as we decided to make the 827 SLi how we would want to buy one, so nothing too extreme, a factory look, but mixing and matching from across the years.
I am also looking to have a good smattering of the optional extras and other goodies, so if anyone has any to spare PM me as I could be interested.
It looks a lot better in the photo's than it does in reality
but it is well savable
