    Best aftermarket panels.

    All the panels and other related body parts i bought from magnum by the time you get the shut gaps the way you want them best saving your money also the original factory Escorts shut gaps were never perfect anyway and the paint finish on them well thats another topic

    Just replied to your asking me about the rear axle on another thread not to be cheeky to anyone on here but 5kg saving i bet most of our cars have double or more that weight in filler and replacement metal i know mine probably has, I would do as someone suggested keep your hard earned cash if its a road car it won't make a blind bit of difference

    Evening no its just a standard rear english with quaife 16 half shafts quaife lsd and converted for rear discs with bmw mini rear callipers Andy supplied all that then he built it for me the reason for the rear callipers is the parts are easily available and 13 inch wheels fit over them as aim going standard ford mexico steel wheels, worth it i would say yes as its very strong all round the other parts internally Andy supplied guys spot on and not expensive i got him to do all the front struts ect.

    Body Jig ( spit roast )

    I bought the roll over jig from tom at Roll over jigs and the one jig did these three jobs all i did was get them to make the brackets for the next car i was putting on it they come all welded up and the price is reasonable. The MK2 is my own car ill need to post up pics one day i have over 700 of it from start till now.
