After following many sales recently and seeing the auction posts on here, after an eBay sale last night, I can't see any for sale anywhere!
Having just had #189 restored throughout and investing in a full bodywork tidy up and respray, can only see the prices rise over the next few years.
Have spent lots of time and money restoring mine recently, sadly the mileage doesn't make mine a higher value one, but yours has some very tasteful modifications and looks very clean. Good luck with the same, some bits and pieces you've made me think about 👍

Had the joys of fitting these this week, pig of a job to do without a ramp but a worthwhile replacement whilst doing the lower arms. Let me know the part number and price as mine could do with replacement.
My springs have covered 146k and from what I've been told they look perfectly fine. I do have a 'mint' set I don't really want to touch and for £35 the pair I thought the powder coating option was the best option.
Will report back when then are done.
