Hi  Ian, I too had fun and games fitting the grille surround but it is so worth it.I'm sorry I missed you at Stoneleigh I went over to the stand a couple of times, but your car is looking good. My car is off the road at the moment, after having fun last year I have started on the interior. I modified MGB seats and fitted them to the z3 seat bases and I'm having fun fitted the dash! One small problem is the wiring colours on the car are not the same as the wiring diagrams! Can you remember the colours for the ignition switch? Any hope it goes well with your seats.

Hi buddy,
My grille still needs some tweaking but I think I will leave that for the present, maybe a winter project when I have some more time to play with it.
Thanks for the compliment, shame I missed you at Stoneleigh. Always good to chat with fellow 250 owners & get to know them. As you know mine was on the Italian Replica stand rather than the DNAOC stand, only because they have been my club for 23 odd years. I did wander over to the DNA stand a few times & had a chat with the guys.
Just hoping my seats will do the car justice, I have seen John James MGB seats & they look good. That would probably have been a far cheaper option + I could have had removable head rests. The way mine are being done they won't have that facility, but should look right. The original Z3 seats were a complete give-away.
Me & wiring don't get along so I had a mate sort out my electrics, he used some sort of meter to trace wires, so sorry, I'm not much help in that direction. All I can do is send you a diagram I have, hope that helps. Good luck & hope to meet up with you soon

Hello Ian,

As a fellow DNA 250 owner I have read (from start to finish) this evening your build thread - really enjoyed reading it, let's just say it brought back a few memories.

My reason for getting in touch is to hopefully speak with you about the Group Harrington chrome parts that you've successfully sourced/fitted ? Mine are still the original DNA ones and they're starting to look tired & weather beaten.

I've attached a few pics of my car by way of an introduction - BTW these photos were taken almost 2 years ago now (Aug 17).

Note: I did try and message you directly but appears that even after first posting one + year ago I am still tagged as a 'newbie' !

Looking forward to chatting, cheers Law'
