Thank you Steve, A pro photo shoot would do it justice - but expensive

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

Taking shape now.
In at the Trimmers at present for about 4 weeks having the seats sorted.
I bought a second set of Z3 seats & removed to tops of the rear frame & welded in a flatter shape to fit the original base, keeping the electric movement still working. Will have it recovered in the original 250 style, will let you know how it turns out. Hope it will be comfortable & look great as it wasn't a cheap job by any means.

New stainless grille surround fitted supplied by Group Harrington, Vietnam
This was a real pain to fit as it is very slightly too large & needs 'dressing'. If you are fitting before paint work the aperture in the body can easily be reshaped but you can damage your paint  if you are not careful once painted.
All the stainless looks 100% better though

Dressing  (whacking) with a club hammer is the way to go

My tyre sizes are 205/65 15 Fronts & 215/65  15 Rears (rear wheels are wider). I used Dunlop SP Sport BlueResponse  tyres & all four cost £300.52 from National tyres - was cheaper ordering on line. I think the tyres look right for the car.

2fifty Chat / Re: Agreed value on 250
« on: March 19, 2019, 09:35:13 AM »
For everyones information & hope you find it helpful if you want an agreed value
Got an agreed value of £70,000 on my 250 from Footman James, no problem whatsoever. (Extra cost on insurance of £16)
Once again Adrian Flux couldn't do over £40,000 without a proper classic report (more cost), I had paid an extra £139 last year & they wouldn't budge.
Neither could A Plan go more than £40,000.
The strange thing is, all of the insurances were through Ageas.
Thank you Madman for your help & sorting my form from FJ. (Adrian Flux & A Plan did not do a form for agreed value)
