Done a few miles over the summer, fantastic fun to drive.

The lovely Mrs Osborne sorted out the FlyArt A2 canvas for my birthday. She knows how to make a man happy!

Amazingly stunning!
After seing first pic's of the rutsty shell and then the transformation into this, fantastic!
Makes it even more fun to see you did this to the 'lesser model' when many probably would have started with the Detomaso Mini.
Also happy to see you went for the RFX's, not that the others was a bad choice, just that these when in the start of the resto 'sat' so right in the wheel wells 👍

So is there anything you might change to it in the future now that you have driven it for a while?
Does it decent mpg?

Was designed in '74 with the chrome/metal bumpers and think it suits it better than the plastic bumper/arched De Tomaso.
Was very pleased when my mate opened his garage door to find a chrome bumpered 120, as they're a lot rarer than other models and better looking imho.
It does about 40 mpg when 'cruising' about 65 mph.
Since it has been on the road I have changed the red dot cones in the rear for std ones, and knocked a degree of caster off, was running a little too much with the wide front tyre.
It goes and handles fantastic. Gonna have to up the mileage on my insurance as I can't stop driving it.
