Hi everybody!

So you've just joined, why not say a few words to introduce yourself - a bit about you, your car - whatever!

Hi everybody,

Below should be some of my photos, the day I bought her - 'Once upon a time there was a poor little neglected Tiger Cub (although I did not look too bad at first sight!) - but believe me I was very sick inside!

Let me know if the picture link works, if so I will upload more (or should I say Technical Support will!)

That's what she looked like and then the 'restoration' began:

First the strip down ....... to see what was hidden

Then I strengthened the roll bar ......

Then the re-build began (I took quite a few pictures of the re-build, including the processes, so I tried to keep it concise just to give you the idea:

And this is how she looks now!

We both look forward to meeting you and your cars soon!

Wow, that's a bit of a transformation, inside and out. I like the fact that you've toned down the yellow a bit with the black cycle wings (like my own 8-) ), wheel arch covers, and the flames graphic down the side. First time I've seen JKs make it into a Tiger as well, the yellow piping on the pads looks good. Got to ask what your steering wheel is? I'm wondering if they come in black with orange contrast, and if it's too early to think about Xmas presents :lol:

(P.S. Tech support's done a top job :D )
