Cool 122s. 4door, overdrive. B18B. 700 ono

Selling my 122s, B18B,four door with overdrive. All welded without any spot of rust.
I bought this car few months ago with plan of restoration, get it painted, get it MOT'd and sell it before I leave abroad in the beginning of September,

But time is running so fast and as I carried out all my work and were killing the rust, some more rusty bits kept appearing here and there, there is no way I can get it finnished before the 1.
I have done fairly good job, basically I have been concentrated on bodywork at first. In most cases it didnt need change all panels neccessarily so I got away with patching up..
I have used 1.2mm for outriggers and 0.9mm metal sheet for the rest.

So what I have done is:
New rear bottom corners ( riveted instead of welded - It is more rust proof way),
few patches in the boot floor, rear inner wings welded and fixed + new rear wheel arches welded;
floor repaired, all 4 outriggers welded, hand brake mounting welded,
all four bottom door skin welded new + inner bottom bit reapired.
front bulkhead below dashboard welded, front inner wings completely repaired, front wings repaired ( around head lamps and down at the bottom).

Every bit on car I painted with rust proof Zinc primer as far as i can reach, sealed with acrylic sealant after it. No bloody silicone used!!
Then I bought new 4sq.m dark grey carpet to fit it as the original rubber one is not the best (comes with car), but not fitted yet.
Dashboard is nice and shiny and only couple years old. Only thing is, it needs to be fitted properly. I dont get it! somebody spent 150 on dashboard and its fitted like monkey have done it..
Engine sounds ok. I had to see it running before I bought it. There was no smoke and revving smoothly and That was the moment when I pulled money out of my pocket and bought myself few weeks of hard time.
Previous owner bought a new battery to get car running before I buy it- 60
+ another good thing - Numberplate LYA331E comes with car
K&N Air filters fitted

So what more needs to be done is:
All body filled, sanded, smoothed, painted, undersealed
Every hole Waxoiled ( 5,5 can comes with it)
some rubber seals should be fitted new. Not serious
Swap spare wheel for front right + I would recomend you a geometry
Get it MOT'd, get it insured and then push the gas properly!

I give you all documets i got with it, some bits and parts, contact on previous owner who kept it last 2 wears on his driveway.
I will still do some work to it on this weekend coming, so it can be viewed in Irvine at any time during a day. Till that time I work away and thats that bloody reason why I cant finish it.

This car is advertised elsewhere, as it have to go before 1st September. Also there is reserved price 1000
Any question will be answered ASAP I get connection. Thanks

Update: Today I got quote for this numberplate... 595 worth. I dont realy want to sell it separate. It just belongs to the car. Beautiful car with nice numberplate.

Found it interesting looking at your Amazon.
A friend of mine used to own the car years ago.
