Beautiful. Always fancied a convertible when I was younger. And I don't know if it was subliminal- but I sensed the Dark Side- The Restoration will be Complete......

Obi Sean, absolutely lovely paint finish. Where has the restoration taken place? USA? Is that a clear coat finish, or single stage?
Very, very nice, old chap.
Looks to be space inside the body for a few gadgets from Q Branch...

The car looks fabulous.  Great job. 
Seeing your post I thought I would share my budget DB5 also!!
Repainted in Silver Birch.  I am working on the gadgets at the moment.  I have revolving number plates and a fake gear knob and a multitude of switches to fill the "arm rest" with.  Hope you like it!

That's lovely, never seen a P1800 in that colour, it looks great.

All wonderful cars but I really love the Volvo P1800, I've loved it since
watching the Saint many years ago, and agree that's a beautiful colour.  ajb007/martini
