Stripey makes

Bid -

£5200 with an under bid of £5199 .
Pretty damn close bids .

Can't believe thats all it went up to .
A very well sorted car .

I guess Dan has a dilemma now as reserve not met ( though from what i know its a few hundred short )

I agree - a bit too much going on. I just keep thinking of seeing yellow inside the car ! How much to get rid of the stripe ? Paint both bumpers, bout and bonnet and rear spoiler. Some nice bits on it though.

A tough call for the chap to make as I know its was his dads and was well respected on here.
