So to add to my list of things to do I decided a Restoration would be a great idea :lol:

The subject is probably the least loved of all 900's being a 5 door LPT auto in white :lol: But I've always wanted a C900 and the 5 door is more practical, being an auto it'll likely drink fuel and being 3 speed likely be horrifically loud at motorway speeds, so I guess this will be a labour of love

The initial inspection tonight has thrown up a fair deal of tinworm

I think these came standard with a knackered headliner :lol:

The plan will be a strip down and rebuild (with plenty welding of course) with trionic 5, 9000 brake upgrade, 9000 anniversary seats and a few other 'restomods' to pep it up a bit and make it a usable classic

Fair bit of work there, Steve. Looking forward to seeing the welding. Our c900T has been a marathon of welding but hoping to finish it next year.

That A pillar rot looks a bit scary! :shock: :argh:
Without wanting to be a complete doom & gloom merchant, would you not be better finding a better base to start from?
