Superb Dude! Mk3 Scamp  Icon_cheers

Not a bad find and it looks like it'll clean up great. Look forward to seeing at a Scamp event/kit car show soon. Mk3 Scamp  Icon_wink

The dash fits a treat, any idea what it's from?

The soft top, in particlar, looks in extremely good nick for a car that's been stored outdoors for that length of time. Reckon you've got yourself a good 'un there.

Presumably a modicum of TLC is needed for the MoT - any chance of your making the Picnic?

Do we assume that you got it for nowt or did any money change hands? Owning a Scamp can end a marriage and bring people together (speaking from experience) so good luck Mk3 Scamp  Icon_smile

Thanks for the replys everyone! Mk3 Scamp  Icon_biggrin Started the cleaning process (apologies for dark pics)...

Mk3 Scamp  F32ff615 Mk3 Scamp  03b9fecb

The soft top has come up remarkably well, and even fits a bit tighter now that its been washed down and dried. I'll have it off again soon to finish doing the top and the underside. Only one small rip 2inch slit in the back where the roof meets the back and only two broken poppers! Very impressed!

The dash (on removal) appears to be Vag group from stamps on the back - though not sure what. Fits incredibly well though!

And cost?? £100 !!
