    5 speed gearbox

    Yea, As I said, I thought I knew the answer would be that 😂 So not straight swop then, I assume tunnel needs a bit of modifying too?

    5 speed gearbox

    I think I know the answer but got to ask, Mk1 cortina, Is there a 5 speed gear box that I can replace my existing stock 4 speed with, that will slot into the space no cutting required and bolt to the precrossflow and existing prop??

    New type metal pressed number plates

    Yea I asked my copper mate about this and he said they're not legal despite these companies claiming they are as they have to be MADE from reflective material and metal ones are painted therefore illegal.
  4. Why?!? I get on period cars, I get on show cars in the show n shine area, I even to a degree get the ones with your football clubs logo faintly covering the plate, or different fonts But on your bmw 3 series, your passatt estate...... I don't! They look EXACTLY the same as the plastic. But they're iilegal, and cost more! Someone able to shed any light on this? I even started to get wound up by it now when I see a normal car with them on 😂😂 Think I may have too much time on my own driving my work van 🤔😂

    Lotus stripes

    Yea was going to copy the lotus style right round to break up the blue, as I cant afford a paint job it's the only thing I thought I could do, I can't afford a professional to paint it so we'll see how we go

    Lotus stripes

    Hi all So I'm looking to put some lotus style stripes on my mk1 Cortina but white, I wandered does anywhere sell them ready made? I bought white vinyl to make them but failed miserably as the lines aren't actually straight but curved slightly an my shakey hands aren't up to it. A local shop could make some but it'd cost a fortune due to the length of vinyl So I was just going to get some white spray but thought I'd ask here first
