cheers for the comments  :smiley:

Yay another one! Looks tidy too! I looked at a nugget and a red one in my search. Nugget had been blown over but was done very poorly, no windows out or door jams, and no/very little attempt at cutting in the new paint as well as rough running and no centre exhaust. Red one had lots of faded areas and was over priced IMO. Glad you got a deal for another characterful car though! What are future plans if any? :smiley:

honestly, the paint is not great as has faded in places but I was so desperate for another Rado I can forgive many of its faults - its no show car but I just love the way they look and drive. Not !00% certain how things will move on with the red one yet, whether I will fit the VR engine I have or the car will make way for a tidier factory VR in the future6.....

Where's this been hiding!  :shocked:

What's happened with the car since?
Which one? The red one...not much, I have raised the coilovers at the rear and am much happier with the way it drives / looks (must be getting old!). The yellow one? I have no idea but would love to know! should never have got rid  :cry:

I was referring to this thread in general, it's been hiding for ages until recently... Are we going to be expecting any more updates in the near future then?

I had a seperate thread on here for my oakie but thought I would revive this thread rather than start a new one when i got another Rado  :smiley:

nothing much of any interest to update at the moment, removed the HID's (back to candle power) and raised the coilovers.

Couple of snow pics from last month  :smiley:
