Hi All

I thought you would all like to see what I have been working on over the last 8 months at TUK Customs (check out the link below)- some of you may have seen the MK1 shell at Edition 38 - well here are the pics from start to nearly finished.

Over the next couple of weeks I intend to get the engine in and on the road (hopefully ready for Westside???)

The car maybe up for sale at the end of the year as i have been offerd a job with work in Austraila (gutted!! but looking forward for the new challenge)

If you are intrested for the complete spec please contact me

Thanks for looking Rob

Tha paintjob instantly makes me think of bangers and smash racing. Is that where it was headed?

well, let me tell you a story....
How far would you go to get a TS?
Following an epic journey, across 5 countries, 1300 miles in 34 hours... and I have me a lovely, all original, never welded, no rust, fully roadworthy, 1974 TS!
OH MY GOD!!!!!
Had it a fortnight now and I still have to double-take it when I see it languishing on my drive every morning.
Owned by one family up until a year ago, and used daily.
Manufacture date: 30th July 1974.

So my question to you is-
Was it worth it?

Wow , that is a beautiful car.
Well worth the long journey to get a rust free and original example like that.
I wish mine looked that good.
