Really good to see this being rescued! This car was built pretty much alongside mine at PF Auto's. In fact the stereo stuff that was the boot build is my old stuff from my VR!
Think its a bit unfair about the comments on the bodyshop as they did mine at the same time and it still picked up a trophy in it this year at EE. All that's been done in all those years is the front changed to Vento at Greg Howell's (Southam Bodys), rest of it is as it left PF Auto's, not bad considering I paid less than £1800 (sure Pete paid even less for the green one!) for all the bodywork and bumper mods and a full paint (excluding roof) colour coded 6 wheels too! My inner arches are a work of art if i'm honest, they spent days getting them to sit right on my wheels with no scrubbing.
Hopefully its salvageable, unfortunately it looks to me like its been sat and neglected unfortunately. I've got some great pics of the pair of them when we did E38 years ago on the PVW stand somewhere, will try and dig them out (not sure if they are digital even, lol)
Ironically one of my good mates now has a 3 door Dragon green one, so get pics with another one now! (Rysa from VRT on here)
