  1. go purchase a magnum mirror, they are quite cheap, throw the mirror in the bin for what theyre worth, but they come with 2 new seals to fit mk1 and mk2 doors and being new rubber they are soft, and yes they fit the ford mirror, done this on Nicks car
  2. tbh, with the tooling at £1500 alone per type, i dont think its viable on either of the cheese box type or the one in the picture, theres not enough demand for them, otherwise the people making the other one would have also done those, and the only way to make the other viable is to be an exact ford copy, if you leave the numbers out that ford put in, then youve just put yourself in competition with the repro one already out there, which is still available, and with the dealers, and people who are doing concourse restorations wont buy it for the same reasons they wont buy the repro one now, as they want theirs looking exact as possible and are prepared to pay the price for an original good or nos one
  3. there are 2 variants of that type shape bottle, the one you have and the one more popular is with the filler hole in the middle, i cant remember the part no off my head but its embossed in the front however, someone already makes a repro of the one with the centre filler hole, and it usually retails around £55, but it has the repro company logo and not the ford part no on the front now if you could copy that bottle, complete with the ford number, at a reasonable price, rather than a repro name or nothing at all, ie it looks like a genuine one, then i think you would have a market, genuine ford NOS usually fetch anything between £200 to £250 a pop, theres probably a market for the one in your picture, but it would be a lot smaller, i have seen very good used ones go over £200, the original bottles suffer with going off colour, but they also split on their mount slides, small splits can be repaired, but wide ones deem the bottle scrap
  4. dont know anyone who supplies new, but the later mk1s had them as well, if that helps broaden your search, as its the same lock i believe usually have to buy the whole thing to get it tho
  5. got sent this this morning, if you know who it is then youll see the funny side of it
  6. the TOYO yes, the rest of it is a no from me
  7. we were getting the std diameter ones from a rally outfit in ireland, however he dosnt have any listed at mo, every now and again they seem to sell out, try this seller Mk1/2 Escort STANDARD type front springs 4.75" o.d. 220lb -3" LOWER 7" long | eBay as the link dosnt seem to work, this is the e-bay item no. 174715253315 these are -3 220LB, but they do other sizes and poundages
