Nope, but it's just about to go into the workshop - Project 220SD has been pushed out into the 'storage workshop'

Mike, was that on ebay, just noticed that a 620ti was emailed to me and then had sold (not that I was interested, it for some reason came up in a search for MGF Salvage!)

Aye, She is, I delibrately left her looks near standard, apart from the slightly lower ride height with the ZR160 suspension, 16"alloys and a little MG union jack and checkered flag badge, she looks standard, all the dosh was spent on the chassis. I was going to strut brace it front and rear next, and get the better bucket seats from a ZR.
