    Quick racks

    Mmmmm Another problem has arrived. Fitted the rack and the mk2 track rod ends to the rack. Happy days. Then found that the tapers on the tre's are too big to fit in my mk1 steering arms (scratching head) Is there a metric track rod end thatll fit in my mk1s arms? Putting capri legs etc on isnt really an option. Any ideas?

    How do you avoid repro stuff? I plan on buying everything from one of the usual suspects and not ebay.

    Bias Pedal boxes

    Afternoon. My car is in bits at the moment getting its RHD conversion. Anyway, before it goes back onto the road itll be getting a few mods in the engine bay which means ill be using a remote servo. Seen this pedal box https://www.burtonpower.com/adjustable-bias-pedal-box-ford-escort-mk1-cable-clutch-brk001.html (Ill be comparing prices with other companies before i buy) and looks like what i need, i think. Do i run one master cylinder to the servo ( front brakes ) and non servo to the rear or twin servos? Cheers Rich

    The wheel above had to be done twice. If you look at the black segment in the 1 o'clock position, id taped up incorrectly when i painted it. All good now lol

    Not the best image i have but it took me ages to get it on here and cant face trying again lol. Set of 4 rough but perfectly round mexico steelies. Shot blasted then painted stardust silver. Then masked up and the black inserts painted. Then laquered. Took about 3 hrs per wheel.
