  1. lol, TNT recompense ?? the 2 don't mix Scott, cost you more to fight them than the thing was worth, TNT are one of the worst carriers out there, not one employee cares, if it says fragile, they will jump on it, ive seen the drivers do it in frustration at the TNT loaders who load it in the wrong order I wouldn't use them again unless they were the only ones who will take it
  2. not sure if mk2 is same as mk1, your wire colours to the heater fan switch are the same as mine though, on mk1, the heater has a constant positive, the switch centre pin goes to the heater, the fast speed side connects direct to earth, the slow connects to earth via a resistor, (on a mk1, this is on the column support) the switch switches earth, not positive your wires have browns in, brown usually resembles earth

    Happy Birthday Vista!

    Happy manufactured day Scott
  4. hockley enterprises in southend on sea re chrome the bumpers for £140 each and mine look fantastic, I tried the rear bumper from neil fletcher and had to return it as the holes were in the wrong place, it arrived with him bent and he wouldn't refund, dam TNT re exhaust, if you want cheap, try a sportex system, yes you will need their manifold, PM Jerrytom, I believe he has a nearly new sportex system for sale
  5. last time I bought std, I bought KYBs from motex at approx. £50 the pair,
  6. they are good tbh, they do the pressed ones as well, and restore your old plates if you want, and tbh, ive found their restoration prices very cheap

  8. i havnt posted any updates on my blue beast lately, and to be fair i havnt been taking any photos either, so i took a few tonight, engine and gear box re overhauled, prop all in, new front struts, and an original steering rack all overhauled and fitted, replacement rear springs and shocks, although i may change the shocks again yet, rear arb in place on the axle, but not connected to the chassis yet, to be done on the ground,heater all been out and re done, the list goes on tbh
  9. if you look on the webcon site, the DGAV is an auto choke carburettor for pinto engines, the DGV is for the 1.3 and 1.6, which ford mainly fitted to the GT crossflow on the mk1 (uk), the DFE is in the Haynes manual, but was a very early carb uperseeded by the DGV, tbh, ive not seen a DFE in use, only the DGV, and theres no sign of support for the DFE on the webcon site that I can see, but the early GT engine had small bore exhaust, and that ceased production in 1970 for the larger bore and different manifold, perhaps that's when the carb was changed
  10. the 1300GT carb is a 32/36 DGV, that im 100% on, and std mex was same unit re jetted I thought, but could be wrong that the DGAV was an auto choke carb for the RS2000

    not sure if this link will work
  12. 1994 E36 m3, its the 3.0 convertible, only 572 RHD 3.0 convertibles made worldwide, not that many left now, as they've been destroyed for track day running gear, they only made these for a limited time, as when the E36 came out in 92, the E30 vert was carried over till 94, they didn't make the E36 vert till 94, and in late 94 started to make the 3.2 EVO (junk), even in that short period the car took some major changes and this is one of the earlier ones complete bare shell, nut and bolt re build, with literally no expense spared it wasn't quite finished in this photo, but its the only one I have to hand as all the resto photos are on a PC that's died and ive got to get the hard drive rescued
  13. if that's the case then, I can claim it as car no 5, done my M3 complete resto and Nicks other car Alvin
  14. been plated both sides, to a very good std though, no reason to disturb those at the moment, just need a couple of repairs to the top rails sills, a couple of holes, but again nothing bad hole on the inner rear tub about the size of a 50p piece front inner tubs have holes in, but they are mud flap bolt holes that some animal fitted, so they want dealing with front panel needs light surround repairs and inner lower panel plating apart from that, very very solid, the zeebart done its job bear in mind, nick just wants a road rat, so its not a total resto, its just more of a recommission, but the engine needs a full re build
  15. what he didn't tell you RP, is that its me that's gotta put it back together
