Back in 2014 , I started a restoration on an 80 Sport, "B" reg , pre-facelift.

Needed a huge amount of welding and most repairs were done by someone "making up sections" from scratch as replacement panels are as rare as hens teeth I think you'll find. If all you need are the panels you mention, you are well on the way to a comparatively quick resto.

Good luck with the job and look forward to pictures if/when you can post some up.

I'm hoping not to get involved in painting the car as I'd like to keep it as original as poss, but we'll see . I'll start with a good power wash and get it running as it's sat for a few years see if it holds all it's fluids etc
It'll need all new brakes, flexys poss calipers good service , timing belts at a minimum I'd think, I'll give it a good going over see what's what! I was thinking of trying to source 90 bumpers and skirts make it a tad more youthful

Please keep it stock, they were such a pretty car, particularly with the side graphics on the early cars.

Check out tradition, they've got quite a few panels on there now although they aren't cheap!

Congrats on you purchase but if I were you I would be avoiding a power wash at all costs. A patient hand wash with good shampoo followed by a quality clay bar and hand polish is the only way to go

As for the 90 bumpers and skirts I'm with The Duke

If you decide you'd like to go for the 80 Sport stripes , I've got a complete new set which I planned to use on my restoration. Basically, the orange, grey and black stripe set along with lettering for the boot , wings, etc.

PM me if you are interested.

So a couple hours spent on the sport this avo and she's up n running, new timing belt, battery, rewire fuel pump, new fuel pump/ filter and fuel ! Had to clean most of the fuses but she started and settled down to a nice idle with excellent oil pressure ! If i get time tomorrow ill have a good prod around underneath but from what I've seen today she's needining a bit more welding than at first thought . Free time is going to be the issue here as I work away.
Thanks for the offer of the stripes, I'll keep it in mind 👍.
