  3. Seam Sealer vs Body Filler

    The stuff you used sounds about right as to regards of what you get when asking for seam sealer. I have used Tiger Seal and another very simular no name brand and they are both as you describe. They are supposed to be flexible so the paint doesnt crack when the body flexes at that joint. It does paint over just fine but I have to admit I dont go prodding at it afterwards Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
  4. New toy at home

    My understanding is a very small amout of RS2000 were actually built as flat front. Chances are it has just been converted in the past. I have an RS2000 that was converted to flat front for instance Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
  5. Change from carbs to throttle bodies

    I have ran twin carbs, both dellorto and weber, on a couple of cars and once they were set up they never went out of tune. Maybe i was lucky. What sort of problems are you having? Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
  6. Getting annoyed

    If someone offers what you want you can sell it outside of ebay therefore avoiding fees. Thats why people do it as oppose to offering a proper "buy it now" Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
  7. Nudgers mk2 Escort project

    They will probably need rejetting for the filters. I put sock filters on mine after my incident and it ran like crap so i just ran with open trumpets after that. That was when i was younger though, depending on the engine, I wouldnt do that now Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
  8. Nudgers mk2 Escort project

    Just an FYI, I ran those stainess "filters" once and the centre tore out of them and got sucked in and jammed the throttle wide open. I was lucky in the fact it got stuck in the butterfly and didnt get drawn into the engine. Basically i wouldnt recommend them, they do nothing in the way of filtration either Sent from my D5803 using Tapatalk
