Hi guys

Purchased this car last year, over all the car was in really good condition, Ive fitted a webber carburator and hope to fit a jetex exuast later on this year.
Stripped all the old interior out, fitted new rubber underlay to the floor, purchased new carpets. The old interior was in a real mess and was the usual Saab brown colour but got the new interior done in a nice blue but to the exact specifications to the old interior.
Just got the rubber spats on the rear wings to fit and a few badges and that will be me happy.

Hope yous like the photos

Car drives really well and everything works great, I use it as a daily driver to my work and garage it every night.
I will also rechrome the brightwork after I fit the new exaust.

Hi Guys
Thanks for your comments i done the interior to match the exterior as i thought the last interior was a bit dull the carpets came from a firm called coverdale in Wigan who specialise in classic car carpets and i got the seats and door cards refurbished in Livingston by a firm called Transcal ,they where very good at the refurbishment and copied everything to the letter i will keep you all updated on the car as i go along but can any one recommend where i can get the bumpers rechromed near Glasgow or Edinburgh
Cheers Tammac

Looks a solid car . If you need complete door seals etc, somebody on here can probably help. These old girls don't last long without protection and being under cover as most are on there last legs already. If you are using her as a daily drive it would be good not only to spend on the fun shiny bits but also to treat the usual rust points, and take off the wings and treat any hidden rust.
