    Got a boot spoiler for my sport through the post today from Australia, on the recommendation of RP to get one from this guy not far from him. Well to say it was gorgeous would be an understatement, it’s flawless. The spoiler was £225 plus £82 delivery so just over £300 Might sound a lot of pennies but when you consider they’re asking more than this for a years old one that’s distorted and half the studs missing, it’s a no brainer for me. No it’s not an original part but who gives a shit if it looks better and cheaper 😎 whoever thought you could get so exited over a bloody spoiler 😉

    Due to accumulating so much crap over the years and needing space for the cars and bikes it left me with no working area. So got some plans drawn up to extend one garage and build another. All went well till the building inspector came down to give advice. The spec he required for footings was ridiculous, but you can’t upset these people 🙄 well not till it’s signed off that is 😜 so 24 cubic metres of concrete later the foundations and floors are in. Got the pre cast garage delivered Friday and today was the first dry day we’ve had, so called the boy in and cracked on. 5 hrs later it’s up !! Envisaged big problems as the panels come in at a bit over 100kg each. The 3 weetabix for brekkie paid off! Roof joists on tomorrow more than likely in the rain, but hey ho, us northerners get used to it...lol

    I used the Ultralite Dynamat in mine thinking that the less weight would be better. While it works I think the thicker regular Dynamat would be more suitable with its added thickness. The stuff you have used looks even more solid again.

    Apologies. Just checked my eBay account and it was actually called Dodomat. It's fairly weighty, but is very flexible and can be cut with a knife or scissors Definitely made a big difference to the interior noise levels when driving. I might lift my seats and carpet out this winter to see what's around my tunnel. If it's bare, then I'll probably use the same brand to cover that along its length. I would recommend this brand and I'd definitely buy it again. Friend of mine has also used it in the roof of his Landrover Defender and is very happy with it. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F162733411046

    The original GT air filter housing is not a round fitment to carb, the one you have will be a std cortina one fitted with a solex carb. If the bottom of the air filter housing is flat, what’s to stop you cutting the round connector off and cutting it to the shape of dcd. With piece of rubber in between, repair washers on the studs in the carb and use nyloc nuts to fasten on. As it been a temp measure till the later mods why waste money on a K&n or possibly paying silly money for a genuine GT filter housing.

    I've done a Mk2 by removing the steering wheel and undoing the 4 crossmember bolts to lower it. However, I'd normally go with Notenoughtime and pull the gearbox back, as it's practically unbolted by the time you've spun out all the bellhousing bolts.

    For the hassle of getting to the gearbox/ bellhousing bolts I’d remove it in one go

    I remember when I was at school and a friends dad was the local Traffic Sergeant, he drove up in a Mk3 Cortina Savage in Mustard he was evaluating. He didn't like it, too much tail end breakaway and nose weight. I thought it looked the Mutts, with a bulge in the bonnet and Rostyles. I give my next door neighbours right testicle for it now!

    Most of the makers or borrowers Scott listed were companies that borrowed parts from other more well known manufacturers to construct a car in their own bespoke shell/ chassis. you could call all of them a bit of a Grey car really😜

    Last night rally I went to was over 30 yrs ago going from Asda over to Cwm Cadlan by the reservoir. This one started near abergavenny. I noted 1 x mexico,1 x rs2000 and about 8 mk2 escorts with many of them being 4 doors. Even a hillman avenger more door. The organisation was great and the cars in excellent condition.lots of shitty FWD cars.

    Forgive the intrusion but from that angle it looks a bit like a Gilbern Invader Estate?

    Pretty sure Dunlop D1 was the original spec on a savage mk2. But I may be wrong...........

    I seem to remember seeing a small amount of grease on these parts when I’ve removed them, with loads of dust etc stuck on maybe they should be cleaned and re greased every couple of years to give an even better life

    Fair to say it was probably inspired by the Dodge Deora from the '60s.

    It has a similar design influence to a Ford Explorer SUV Concept that was built in 1973 with images posted earlier in this thread.

    Hi there, just joined up thought you might be interested in my car. I bought it in March 2018 off eBay from a guy in Scotland without going to look at it, you know exactly how your always told you shouldn’t. It did have a very good description with loads of photos and videos in my defence, plus it was in Scotland and I’m in Wales and that’s a long way. 😁 Anyway, It’s a 1954 Ford Consul with a 2 litre Zetec and 5 speed gearbox. Here are some pics of what it was like when I got it and went to Silverstone Classic in it.

    Fast back model, i remember back in the 1970,s someone i knew bought a brand new skoda, while looking around it i noticed you could see the road through the gap between the sill and bottom of the door.. Excellent quality control.

    Thanks and thanks 👍 Little bit more info on the car, it was last painted in the early 70’s, there is no rust that I can find, has full stainless exhaust system and I have seen it once since April !!!!! Here is a picture of it with the car I sold to buy it, ended up being pretty much a straight swap money wise.

    It was very well put together by a guy in Exeter. The story goes that he built it for a guy who only drive it once or twice before the bench seat cause his back some grief, he then sold it to the guy in Scotland that I bought it from who again due to circumstances beyond his control only drove it a couple of times himself so the engine had only done about 400 miles when I got my hands in it. It was built with a 2 litre Zetec with a single carb, discs on the front and drums on the back. The axle is an English axle from I think an Anglia. I had no info with the car, just the receipt for the engine and log book. its the first car I have ever bought done so wanted to make it more mine after the first summer of driving it. Just little things to start with, sound deadening, hidden stereo, change the wheel colour, put decent tyres on it. This is where things went a bit west, I promptly blew everything on the back axle. So last winter it had custom made updates half shafts an LSD and new crown wheel, I’ve also lowered the front a little and it’s in the process of having Jenvey throttle bodies added and new free flowing manifold. The picture below is with bike carbs but have decided against these and have gone with Jenvey’s. More pics.

    Thanks for the replies chaps. Most informative. No, it won't be rallied and is for road use only, but last time I did this conversion I used the WCXM as it was easier to make my own mounts. there weren't kits available back then. There's even a letter in CF I wrote where they advised me NOT to do the swap as it was too tricky and untried....how things changed. They even sent me some classic car oil as It was star letter! Usless.... As for pictures, when I get round to stripping I shall add some. The car is under wraps for now whilst I try and decide what route to go down. Thanks again for the input. I like this place!

    I would be remiss if I didn't add myself after all this time. Needs to be lowered an inch I think?
