As I feel I have neglected my car I have now decided to spend more time and try to get her back to first class condition. Their are several areas that need addressing

Paint and Body Work
- Unfortunately the Red paint has suffered and is now in need of a re-spray. I decided to take this opportunity to also remove , clean and refit the glass as well as make some cosmetic modification. These include a dual stainless sports exhaust which requires an extra hole in the rear valance and an update to the round style rear lights of the current Esprit.

Engine
- Still good as I have been keeping up the services despite my low annual mileage. I now intend on cleaning it up, painting and upgrading with some performance mods including a High Flow Air filter with Ram Air, Inter/Chargecooler, Dump Valve and a stainless steal twin high flow exhaust. I must admit that the exhaust is more for cosmetics but will improve performance and sound.
