  1. Had these mixed by halfords:
  2. The 5W is x4 also. So, maybe front sides and rear tails at a guess.
  3. Put my battery on charge and re-fitted my mirror and door panel last night. Sunny here today, so will drive it out of garage and clean it tonight. Mondeo ST also got a wash and wax. Fords breakfast meet this Sunday, so weather depending, I will be taking the Escort or Mondeo ST. Either way I get a bacon and burger roll and a brew
  4. Mal, would these fit? https://www.autodoc.co.uk/bosch/1166323

  6. 4 way stretch carpet will fit tight and look good if your not worried about originality. Would work really well on a worn rear shelf and would also be much quieter. However, you would lose the fake stitching detail that is on the original pvc door cards. But, if your current door cards are really rough, then you have nothing to lose and this stuff looks really neat. I have done 2 vans with stretch carpet and it's not hard to do. Below is a side panel I've recently done and also some beer pods to fit the panels in grey. The black van carpet was easier to do, as it hides any little blemishes. Got my carpet and glue from Kiravans.
  7. 2.0 Zetec would be your easiest route for a modern engine with lots of parts available. However, I've seen some nice Cosworth BOAs and BOBs fitted to various cars and they look good. Had a passenger ride in a Sierra with a BOA fitted and it was seriously strong 😈

  10. Think I put GL4 in my box and GL5 in my ATB. Was a while ago though... 😁
  11. I removed my 3 leaf off my Mk2 and fitted new single leaf. Car sat much better.
  12. No, I think they've shot themselves in the foot with this years location and there's not the usual uptake. I'm still out of pocket from tickets with them from 2 years ago. They offered me tickets for this show in lieu, but I've declined. If it had been at POD, then I would more than likely have gone.
  13. Happy to go for the 1, Col if you want to sell it. However, I do need to keep both lungs, as I live in a hilly area 😁
  14. Col, I'd go for some MK2 Escort, vinyl roof hockey sticks if you can find any in there, please.
  15. Haha, yes. Very interesting articles they were
  16. Any Club International with How To's by Linzi Drew?

    Going to be nice when finished 😁 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/275307752320?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=E30hZJr3SQq&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=ImmzStObSNW&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  18. Ah rite. Yes, I remember the thread now 😁 I'm getting old...

    I had one of them, but with yellow wheels. Loved that bike.
  20. Stunning looking car. That's how I actually bought mine about 10 years ago. Guy that had it stopped using it, as his Dad couldn't get in and out of it, and the money helped towards his house deposit. Only had mine out once so far this year, as we're going out more in the T5 with our granddaughter on weekends. Hope you get what you want for it. Will you get something a bit more modern with seats that suit or not bother with anything?
  21. I'm running 153bhp through an English with ATB and standard RS2000 half shafts. This gets a hard time now and again on a Sunday morning, with no dramas anymore since fitting the ATB. Previous diff shit itself under a bit of the loud pedal.
  22. Looks like there's one on ebay. Description looks correct, but picture is for Mk1. Pic below of mine is correct for the book. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144022599206?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=815C3ZuwTru&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=ImmzStObSNW&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
