No from me more of a 4wd thing

Thats funny, here is more of a V8 muscle car thing. So the rest of us dont usually go for it.  So it must trend with certain groups rather than a widely varied thing.

I remember before the advent of asymmetric tyres the guy would ask if you wanted the lettering in or out. It was more often the American tyre companies like BF Goodridge that always had white lettering where Yokohama only seemed to put it on some like their 352's.

As above, your car mate, do what you want.

Other mods aint everyone's cuppa tea such as rear window louvers, jack up kits, clear rear lights, different engines etc, but that's what makes our cars so cool, lots of unique different touches from car to car, be boring if they are all identical

What was that? Dont like rear window louvres? Name names? I got me pen out! 🤨.

I personally hate alloy radiators. They make me cringe. No idea why I just prefer original looking black ones. Maybe it makes the engine bay look too modern? Period looking mods under the bonnet dont bother me at all. Love @Vista Jenvey's.

Ha, I don't mind them either, proper retro and look good on the right car

I kinda know what you mean about the alloy rads, but I don't think I 'hate' them,  😆

It could be Ebay overload. When I search for MK2 Escort Parts on Ebay Australia half of this listings are for alloy radiators. I have to sift through and find the good stuff in a forest of alloy.

just strange as it was a really early car G or F reg?

It was an 1969 H plate and I don't think so re genuine Twin Cam

If it were a twin cam it would have had oblong lights rather than round (I think the change was 1970?) though these could have been changed.....but if you look at page of his build thread from 2005 / 2006 page four shows red paint on the floor. All twin cams over here were white
