  1. Mixed results then, I agree you may not even notice the difference between regular and higher octane unless driving hard And if i was using the Mex as a daily driver then it'd cost a lot more to run on higher octane stuff, but for the old blat out every now and again, I'd rather stick with something which is supposed to help, It seemed to run fine on the Tesco Momentum 99, so will probably stick wth that, and its closer than Shell HAHAHA Oh, and the house still stinks of petrol !
  2. OK, so drained all the old fuel out and chucked in a Jerry can of V Power just to get it going again, and after standing for around 3 years and after a few attempts it coughed and spluttered into life 😁😁 The can didn't do much to the gauge, which I don't entirely trust anyway, so gingerly drove to the closest tescos and chucked in £20 of their 99 momentum Came home via the motorway and wow, I'd forgotten how lively it was. Certainly blew the cobwebs out. Needless to say I'm fookin buzzing.....oh and stinking of petrol 🤣🤣
  3. Cheers mate In the grand scheme of things it probably doesn't make much difference, but thought I'd gauge people's thoughts
  4. Hi all Probably a daft question, but I've not had the car on the road for about 3-4 years, and am in the process of dragging it out of hibernation to give it a once over before taking it for an MOT etc. I know the fuel will be as stale as a week old kebab, so that's gonna be drained out.🤣🤣🤣 But the question is... Is Shell V power still the best suited for a mildly modded X-Flow on 40's? Or had anyone tried this new (ish) ESSO Synergy Supreme+99? Or is it all a load of tosh? Ta
  5. Loving the graft so far, look forward to seeing the progress.
  6. The great thing with a Classic Ford is that it doesn't take much to transform the initial look from standard to " Oh, I wonder what he's done to that" Lowered and a set of period deep steels or alloys and you'll love it! oh, and decent brakes
  7. Well it looks great so far mate Hopefully we'll be out and about this summer.
  8. Pewter? Blimey Cheers for your help mate
  9. Cheers mate. I think I do remember seeing your style for sale at some point. And I think it was those that prompted me to search again. I do like your ones, but if there no longer available I guess it's only the Polish ones that are an option. You don't recall who was selling the UK ones do you? Sent from my SM-G770F using Tapatalk
  10. Looks great, you must be well chuffed.
  11. Yeah, it'd always be a risk having to try to tackle something like that yourself. I can kill the fuel pump with a flick of a switch, and with a hand held it may just save the car rather than just watch it burn. I think I'd rather have one than not. Would powder be the best all round option? Or would C02 be better for fuel leaks?
  12. Know the car well. Plus it's lost its bonnet which we saw fly off at the wingspan after he'd sold it on.🤣 Looks amazing though mate, good skills.
  13. Cheers, I'm 50/50 on them. They do add a chunkier look, but did they fit ok?
