Heres the beast... needs a few bits doing like tailgate catch repairing, belts, powersteering, fluids.. a damn good interior valet,other than that the list of jobs to do is..

Rear lights... ordered
Volvo wheel trims.. ordered
Reflective strip... ordered
Fuel flap repair.. ordered
Seat belt catch.. ordered
Front lenses
Wiper blades
Hoses to replace
Wind deflectors

All in all i think its going to be a good car even has original tool kit in the boot side,headlight wioers work too, it is a seven seater but i reckon im going to remove them as theyd never be used and i prefer to put bits bobs in the storage.

It has scrubbed up pretty well, hopefully now it is in good hands it will get another chance.

You forgot to put manual boost controller on the list of jobs to do

Looking good - i'd remove that roof rack and gain 10mpg as well if i owned it! Keep it for when you need it!

I'd also leave the seven seat conversion in place, there are two cubby holes to the side anyway for storing bits and bobs - up to you though.

Just two lightweight bars that fit/ remove in few minutes. The cubby holes arent big enough ive tried, its a shame to leave them unused taking up the space.

In that case, remove them quick! The drag they cause through the air is unbelievable! Nothing to do with their weight!

Also you won't gain as much space as you think by removing the extra seats.

Well done for saving another one of these, always something that's nice to see!

I could be tempted with the rear seat conversion, if you decide it's not for you and you want to sell please give me a nudge/dibs etc

my 92 had a rear seat conversion i took it out useless bit of kit in my opinion only good side to it was i got 65 quid for it lol the vast space without it is of far more use as in full size spare and tuns of crap hidden

Looking at the pic of the rear 3rd row seats ... I have just realised that the arm rests are missing! Bob

Beautiful...and will only get more beautiful!

A set of white Draco or Pholus alloys would look gorgeous on it.
