    The only photos I have of the car are those I pasted into a Word document and I wouldn't have a clue how to post them on here.

    The car is a 1998 2.8 model which has been modified slightly. Being a complusive fiddler that I am i'm currently changing the interior from beige to black. This is the reason for wanting the roll hoop brackets as they are the only things i'm short of other than a few black plastic covers.

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Looks very nice from the picture you posted. I've moved these posts from the wanted thread so it doesn't go off topic, with everyone pestering you for photos ;)

    Shout if you have any questions.

    Those wheels need a clean, you've got a lot of brake dust on them, they're nearly black!

    As a fellow Montreal blue owner I'm always checking out other blue one for ideas.
    Normally I don't think black wheels work on this colour but in the pictures this one looks very good.
    The smoked lenses also work on here.

    I do like the smooth look with no roll hoops too. Somehow makes it even wider and lower.

    Welcome mate. I used to own a 2.8 really loved the sound they made. What area are you in?

    Thanks for the nice comments, i'm in the Chester area.

    I bought the car for £1500 and it has had a few modifications.
    Lowered, although too much in my opinion. Arches have been rolled.
    Clear front and back lights.
    Momo steering wheel, no air bag.
    Upgraded manifold, from a 325 I think
    K&N air filter.
    The wheels are 17" not sure what model they are off.

    Regards documenting the interior change, well let me just say it's a sod.

    I should mention that should anyone have any questions regarding the interior change I would be more than happy to discuss with them

    Interior colours are like oral sex, a matter of taste. Everyone has different preferences. I actually don't mind black, but its a bit depressing and dull and shows the dust and dirt more than some colours. I just happen to like my colour. It lifts me, but also relaxes me and induces a feeling of well being. Perhaps its an age thing, I am a bit long in the tooth.
