Body work is in overall good condition, although the car is hpi clear is has obviously taken a knock at some point near the passenger door mirror hinge area. The passenger side wing mirror has been replaced with a black non painted item, this has also caused cracks on the door by the mirror mount. To the same area the sill has also been repaired not done to the best of standards and the hinge has been knock. There is no damage to the alloy floor or any of the suspension mounts it does seem to be localised to this area. Interior wise there is a cut in the dash and the original seats have been replaced by extra padded s2 Elise type seats. The interior door cards have just been recovered to tidy them up in the original sandy/gold alcantara.
Photos of all the areas we think require restoration available upon request.
The above has been taken into account, hence low price for a such a special model.
