Hi All,

Green Goddess back from annual servicings etc today, with fresh 12mth MoT.

When I went to get it it looked the best I have ever seen it. Jamie, one of the owners there was taking pics so I thought I'd get them from him. (Apologies for the ugly guy in some of the shots!)

Green goddess indeed! What a stunning looking car, the paintwork there is what I imagine all BRG 800 owners aspire to - I certainly do.
I'm by no means a Saint, nor a James - but a Tom. My cars are:

1985 Citroen BX19 GT Bleu Romantique
1999 Rover 820 Si Fastback British Racing Green

Cheers Tom, it was looking absolutely cracking, though I cannot take much of the credit, they had kindly polished it for me so not the work of my own hand :oops:

Wow it looks brandnew. Lovely motor and I like those mk1 rims. They look the part on a mk1 and mk2.

Just in case anyone was wondering what 5hrs waxing and wearing one's fingers to tiny stumps looks like:

Two washes (using 2 bucket method) then colour magic, then turtle wax with carnuaba

Bloody knackered I am!

Now you've had some practice Mark, i have a White Gold Sterling saloon and a Volvo estate you can carry on with! :lol:

Seriously though, it looked good when i saw it a few months back, even better now! :wink: :D

Wow you're quick off the mark Dave. Check my post again as I initially duplicated the first pic 7 times, now fixed!

And thanks!

Funny thing is Mark, there was only one image on the post i initially replied to. Not to worry, the extra photos add even more appeal and those Mk1 Prestiges really set it off - difficult to tell when it's in the garage (like it was last time i saw it) but they really look the part on it. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

I do love those wheels ;)
