  1. The original seller of the "Brown" MKI Escort as featured on Wheeler Dealers has put an answer on his current Ebay ad for a car he selling regarding the MKI Escort - and at that selling price I bet he not worried about bouncing another one around a field as well !! ********************************** Seats came from an izuza trooper ! but they know the best ,yes ca...r looked good in the end and yes i made plenty on it , it stood me in £465 thats why i gave it to my son but what the hell i have to many projects on the go now so its good to see one done on wheeler dealers...well done you
  2. £1850 for paint and wing - which they stated at £120 each so leaves £1610
  3. Glad you like em ! Well it was also nice to see the "Barry Lee" car on Burtons stand at the NEC with a rear louvre fitted !
  4. Is this the look you after ? - lol
  5. How many ? Ok sorry now I see you answered my first question in your later post 1 or 2 members report Ebay V5 sales and as I have 7643 members then according to your "INSINUATION" there are 7641 who are "at it" regarding V5 / log books That is your statement I do not agree with. Also please bear in mind that to be a member of ANY website (mine included) does not then restrict said member from joining and being a member of another website. Again I repeat classified/private ads for V5's from ANY member of Rallye Sport Escorts are not allowed and as soon as I am aware of
  6. Not needed on vehicles registered before 1st April 1980
  7. What if the owner of the "stolen" car has had the log book since the 1980's when his pride and joy got smashed up and scrapped but he never sent the book off to DVLA for scrapping and no insurance was involved as he was 3rd party F+T in the 80's. Then years later Escorts become worth serious money and he thinks he has a fool proof plan to get an insurance claim so uses his "long term owner" V5 to make a "claim" ! So no V5 trading was involved Just a thought and to be fair we will never know ! What needs to be tightened up is DVLA's procedure regarding V5's out there without a
  8. IF this is proven as an insurance scam then it should go along way to slow down the black market trade of V5's Also an insurance company require a Police Crime Number to progress with a Theft claim so I can only guess that the Police will become interested in this "claim" as well
  9. Found the Q+A's section but will e-mail em regarding existing corrosion http://www.evanscoolants.co.uk/faqs.html
  10. Thanks for the comments - I will update once it is actually in my engine ! Also here is what got me onto EWC in the first place http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQk_X33B2iQ
  11. You mean what I said made sense to you ? Yep I have a pint glass for my Stella lol Actually Stella Artois has an alcohol content of 5.2% so it may work as an antifreeze - lol Not sure how good Stella 4% or Cidre would perform though !
  12. You mean what I said made sense to you ?
  13. The theory behind the concept is sound lets hope the application is as good !!! When you look into the science of water as a coolant then the theory makes a lot of sense to go Waterless Engines run efficient at apprx 90 deg/c yet water boils into steam at 100 deg/c Water freezes at 0 deg/c yet we often suffer temps below this figure here in the UK So when a rad cap is added it allows the water to boil at a higher temperature say 110 deg/c but a performance engine or an engine that usually suffers poor air flow or cooling properties will reach 100+ deg/c within no time at all -
  14. I even got a cup to drink me Coffee !
  15. I have bought 2 x 5 ltr Power 180 for my RS2000 As my engine is a "fresh rebuild" there is no water in the block and the radiator is totally dry inside I have had to use workshop airline to blow out ALL traces of water from the heater matrix There is a water flush additive available but in my case engine not been in car for a year so have been able to dry out all components I have done a lot of homework before spending £110 to "cool" my engine !!! This fluid does not freeze till -40 deg/c and will not boil till it reaches 180 deg/c The best bit is that until it boils th
  16. Correct - Thank you sir ! I only got involved with this particular thread because it was bought to my attention that Top Ghia on O/S/F had "insinuated" that V5 trading is condoned on my website - which it is NOT !
  17. Well its here in the Mini World - Tax Free http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tax-exempt-Mi ... 3ccddf95bd Fancy a Jag XJ6 ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-XJ6-SE ... 5899e198ea
  18. Without a (RS2000 or Mexico) UK V5 It would prevent it being sold for RS2000 or RS Mexico premium though so the 12,000 mile trip isnt such a good proposition then for it to only be a Q Plate Saloon back here in Blighty As I have said we know V5 sales go on but its DVLA who need to stop it occuring.
  19. No need as I will put up the "advert" that is concerning you http://bbs.rallyesportescorts.co.uk/showthread.php?t=64755 Sean is the biggest wind-up merchant from The Emerald Isle and there are many members of O/S/F who also know what Sean is like He is also part of the second thread that you bought to my attention and he has great pleasure in stirring the spoon within that thread as well NOTE :- Also a very interesting comment from Escort-Tec within the thread as well http://bbs.rallyesportescorts.co.uk/showthread.php?t=64803 I am sorry but until such time as DVLA tight
  20. All DVLA are interested in is The Registered Keeper so they can send fines, renewals and notices to them. As previously mentioned it appears EBay no longer have the "report" icon that stated "identification advertised without a vehicle" so it looks like they no longer can be RSed !
  21. Many thanks Vista We all know V5 sales are rife but until such time as DVLA "outlaw it" then it will continue Sites like ours are doing our bit to make people aware so they can be a bit more forearmed when buying a car but we both do not allow Classified Ads to perpetrate the sales of V5's This is not just a problem in the Escort world
  22. Maybe the Rallye Sport Escort HATERS may wish to look at this thread and see just what we have uncovered !!! http://bbs.rallyesportescorts.co.uk/showthread.php?p=633868#post633868
  23. V5 sales are NOT allowed on http://www.rallyesportescorts.co.uk either
  24. Rallye sport escort forum. One or two members post up ebay log book sales and report them. And end up getting shouted down by the rest who don't care or are at it themselves. Please link to the classified (not a "linked to" advert) advert on my site where a Mexico V5 was sold under the disguise of a roof skin for sale I am only human and if such a thread exists I will remove it immediately As for others "shouting people down" then free speech is allowed but personal attack is not BUT please prove it that as you quoted "the rest" "are at it themselves" !
