Oz_toffa and I collected an Early Florian a while back from the Wilmington Toy Museum. :D

Now time to get some bits done on it to get it on the road!. :ugeek:

Just collected a set of Mitsi Scorpion Wheels for it as I doubt the hub caps are in the boot and need to get a key cut to find out :lol:
The wheels need one heck of a clean BUT have NO road rash1 :o

Only thing the Headlights have been swapped out for later versions, I have the original lenses thanks to Matt but would like to track down the surrounds!
If any one has even one that would be fantastic. :D

Can you take out the back seat to get into the boot Josh?

That looks like it will clean up nicely.

Have thought about going through the boot but will try getting the key cut from the passenger door lock number.
The car came from central SA so not much rust.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to that too. I remember getting the back seat out of one I didn't have a key for, and getting a realy long screwdriver to trip the catch. Then I was looking under the front at the suspension when I spied a magnetic spare key holder behind the skirt (valence). Sure enough the key was in there, so I could shut the boot again!
Those wheels should look good and carry a bit more rubber than standard ones. You do know that I have a spare set of hubbies though, don't you? ;)
Cheers, Matt.

Oh I like the Idea of extending a screwdriver, I can modify a metal curtain rod to hold one! :ugeek:
I have quite a few Luv blanks so i can remove the lock and use the 4 digit code on the back to get a key cut.
I didnt know you had another set of Caps :shock: :shock: , I will still have the original rims Sand Blasted and Powder Coated and tyre's fitted.
The Alloys wont be much wider as I already had a set 175/75/14's and nuts for them.
I was hoping to maybe get 15" Sigma GSR rims to give a bit more top end but thought the 14" would look better :lol:
Sad when you get bored and crudely mock up what it would look like LOL :lol:

So I was in the shed looking for something else, when I found a couple of items. I hadn't realised there was a difference in the headlight trims between models, but the lights are different, so naturally they are too!

Unfortunately they are both drivers side, but one is better than none! I need to look further.
These are NOS, freely given from Bob Blackwell from when his family had the dealership. One has your name on it.
:D Matt.
