  1. Right ok, so sounds like most of you have had similar issues with east kent like i have in the past even though it wasnt on a classic ford! I think i might use classic trim for the seals and aldridge for the interior trim. I already have MK1 twin cam seats front and rear so thank fully i dont have to worry about seats. Very good info from mk2 matt! Thanks for that buddy. Rob
  2. Nice one lads, thanks for your information and experiences! It looks like i will just mix and match a bit between the companies and see how my wallet copes haha. Interesting to hear the different views with east kent supplies! And yes its very true you get what you pay for, i would just be worried that east kent and also classic trim use the same seal supplier/manufacturer but yet charge different amounts. Thanks again, and anyone else with more info will always be appreciated. Thanks Rob
  3. Alright Men, well as per the title really, i am after advice from people who have used the above trim suppliers and tell me what you think of them? I am buying all new interior including carpet, door cars, headlining, window seals, door seals etc etc for my Mk1 Escort and i am stuck on who to buy the products from. East kent trim sell a full mk1 escort seal kit for £367, but ive used these seals in the past and havent been over impressed as they split on the edges over time. Classic trim do a complete seal kit for £560, which is a lot more cash but if the quality is better then i would be happy! Has anyone bought seals from either company? As for door cards, carpets etc choosing between aldridge and classic trim is kind of like choosing your mum or dad lol! Both have their perks but ultimately its down to cost and quality. Any advice or experiences would be much appreciated. Cheers Rob

  5. That looks the tits! Top job that man! Hope they dont corrode away to nothing though, as they are no longer protected. What about laquer over the top? I know it may give a slight shine, but hey, better than corrosion
  6. Hi there Johnnyh! Im gonna have to pull out im affraid, due to im selling my car (house moving forces sale ) Im bloody gutted to say the least. So you can rip up my cheque and take me off the list (no.5 ATC 7***) Sorry if ive caused any inconvenience mate. But at least it allows one of the reserve peeps to get on the list. Cheers Rob
  7. Alrite there boys, i was reading through the latest copy of Retro Ford the other day, and looking in ore of the Duratec engined concours looking Capri, and i have no complaints about the car what so ever, which i usually do have as i like to pick any holes i can in a car! haha, Sorry. But it was the photo on page 123 of the underside which made me cringe. Not because there was anything wrong with it, but for the fact the car was jacked up on the ramp ON THE FLOOR PAN!!!! Not the chassis rails! Well ok, only one of the legs on the ramp was supported on the floor, and the rest was on the chassis rails, but still come on! take some care who ever done that! I do hope it never bent the floor!
  8. Thanks, for the comments lads, but im affraid there is some very bad news on the horizon! Im having to stop the project and sell up Which is a big kick in the balls, as ive had to do this with my classic ford collection before, but this time for a different reason. My parents have decided to move house, after 27 years! Problem being there wont be room at this new place they are looking at for all my cars. (2 AE86's, Mitsubishi Starion 2.6 Widebody, MK2 Escort Project and my Carina GTI towcar for my Hillclimber) I wont be selling my AE86's, as these are my babies, so im selling my Starion, along with my cool mk2 project. I know im going to regret this hugely, but its out of my hands. So im going to finish welding the shell, and sell it serperatly to the parts. So if any of you are interested in any of the parts pictured, drop me a message. I will soon put them in the forsale section. I hope youve got alot of money hanging around mate, as importing AE86's isnt cheap! The cheapest import your gonna get once landed is £3k, and that will be the roughest ones available in Japan, as they are a very valuable and rare car over there too. Dont forget the shipping and handling costs, will never be less than £1100. And yes my AE86 is 20v. I bought the car as a bog std UK spec 1 owner from new minter over 4 years ago, and transformed it. But not after a couple years of hard graft and £15k!!!!!! I wont bore you with the spec, i'll be here for years telling ya! Here a few pics for ya (sorry for disrupting the classic ford scene peeps ) This is what it looked like when i first had it back in the day, in bog std form. And this is it now: Enjoy The car has changed a little bit since them pics, but remains very similar!
  9. Holy christ! That is one sweet sweet anglebox! Top job mate!
  10. haha, dude read the 1st part of my post! The cars aint nothing to do with me! Dont know whos they are or where! But yeah! Gutting for who ever owns them!
  11. Stolen from another forum im on! Not sure if its already been posted up here but thought id do it just incase! I dont know who's cars theses were, so dont ask me any questions about them
  12. I paid £175 for a set of 5 brand new Yoko A539's in 175/50 13's! So thats £35 a tyre! Cheap if you ask me!
  13. Id get it just for the log book if it were tax exempt!
  14. Looks smart mate! Gives the car that original classic look still. Id personally have to have 7j, or 8j's but im just a wide boy offset queen! haha.
