(Sorry, I think I posted this once before and I didn't hit 'submit')

Hi everyone! After many years of waiting and saving and a late onset diagnosis of type 1 diabetes which nearly killed me in 2018, I've finally bitten the bullet and as an early thirtieth birthday present to myself bought a lovely 1988 Silver Spirit in midnight blue.

It's in excellent condition, and now I've had a major service it's running like a dream.

Being the perfectionist that I am, I have a long list of 'to do's' that I'm working through. No doubt it will be a continual work in progress.

Just wanted to say hello to everyone, and look forward to chatting some more.

Photos coming soon!

Cheers,
Justin

Justin,

Welcome and Happy birthday.

You have to post a picture(s) soon.

Also posting your to do list is often a helpful exercise with people giving advice about the items in terms of time, tips, products to use, etc.

Best.

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to becoming part of the community!

Yes, Graham Phillips, welcome to the insanity indeed. I have another $12,000.00 to go to get the vehicle up to my desired standard. Lucky my partner is the saver of the two of us, and drives a Mazda 3. Someone needs to balance me out a bit. He thinks it's absolute madness spending money like this. He's probably right.

Good luck with your new purchase Justin, unfortunately I know nothing about the Spirit, I'm more of a Shadow person myself.
