  2. I went out to a local Ford meet last Sunday. Was good to have a chat and see other cars. Had a good look around a few nice cars, but didn't get any pics, except of mine before I set off. Had to keep the Bacon Burger and Brew quiet though when I got home, as I had a Sunday Roast waiting 😁

  3. Hi all Finally after about 5 years I am embarking on a new classic ford project in the shape of a 64 plate mk1 cortina. So not a new user as such but looking forward to getting back in to things. The car is shabby but solid enough and I cant afford to paint it! About to undergo a lot of new mechanics and an ST170 transplant however so it should be fun looking forward to catching up and getting back to some meets that I havent been to in a long time All the best James

  5. I had a 16v Astra Gte when I was 18 and the abuse that thing took was unbelievable . I think it’s a really strong engine and this one is a early one so it has the coscast head and the lighter crank and flywheel.

  6. Window and door seals arrived today but cage should be being done next weekend so they will have to wait to go in! A bit off topic but me and a mate bought a Morris minor with a 2l fiat twin cam engine last week so decided to paint it the same as the escort roof done This will also be going to retrorides with a lancia fuvia which will also have red with gold roof treatment

  7. I've politely asked a reasonable question of the seller, so I'm not sure why you feel the need to comment. The car hasn't sold and i have my own engine and box ready to go. Seller could also potentially make more money splitting the package.

  14. They would have to make that one the last in the season I have watched all the others so hopefully will see that one tonight. I actually picked up a valuable tip from one of the episodes from this season regarding plastic silvering. I knew about the vacuum way of doing it but its only for small items. I want to give back the chrome look to the plastic gutter trims but they have a 1 metre size limit for the vacuum method. I think it was the Jensen Interceptor episode where they were doing the grill and they did a spray on silvering that gave that same chrome look. I have been looking for a

  20. They are cast, so its safe to assume they are Ford produced, therefore stock Ford ring packs should be suitable @ +2.25mm size. This is probably why the Q's from Burton's. Can't see the point of measuring now except to confirm the block ain't wore out - if the holes are oval, you're bolluxed anyway as additional overbore not safe!

  26. Started to watch Tennet not so long ago, but turned it off. Not tried again. Watched 2 films over the weekend : Greta - Was pretty good. Men in Black 3 - Good CGI and a very nice Series 3 Jaguar. Slightly modified... Also been watching Ed China's new channel on YouTube:

  27. they are really tiny images so no detail to enlarge. Might need to repost larger versions which you may try line spacing between them as they may be adding to your post side by side and as a result the system is shrinking them down to make them fit altogether as one or you can also send them to me via private message and I will post it for you. They look like great photos.

  29. ROME was not built in one day, its when it takes you 2 weeks to change a wheel stud, and when you stand back, you find you have fitted the new wheel stud the wrong way around, that really spoils your day !!??.

  32. Narrow 13 degree V4 engine, very rare, looks just like an inline 4 but it is not, it is a proper V4 with a single cylinder head. Very funky.

  34. Haha, I shouldn't laugh at this, but I can just picture it. We had 2 houses out on rent years ago. 1 guy had an immaculate Orion and always dressed well, but kept pit bulls in 1 of the bedrooms. When he left, I withheld his deposit to pay for new floorboards because of all the sh1t ingrained on them. He then wanted to fight me for his deposit back πŸ˜‚. Another guy owed me 3 months rent on another house, but seemed to have enough money to go to Spain for 2 weeks with his missus and kids. I changed the locks while he was away and sold his car and pushbikes. His missus was going bonker

  37. In episode 33, I replace the banana-shaped driveshafts, and further investigate the horrible knocking noise coming from the engine. I've done something a little different this time - an unedited "first person" segment - please let me know if you like it, and would like to see this kind of thing again!

  39. I also heard that from a friend who was a tanker driver! I use super from Shell/Esso/Tesco or wherever else i can get it although have been told by my tuner (my other half :D) that I can just use normal 95ron ... prefer the super though (just in case).
