i have now got my 1988 ford granada and it needs a few things doing to make it look good again.

the granada is a fabric gold but its been painted bad on the arches and some paint splatter on the bonnet. it is in poor condition the body work. but on the upside all electric windows work great even the sunroof. the seats are very comfy. tomorrow im doing a service on it as it reaks of petrol when running, im also taking of the the sill panel covers and preparing them to be welded.

also need suggestions on paint as i need to repaint it. im thinking of keeping it fabric gold as original colour but im not sure where i can pick it up as im repainting myself

If you scroll down the forums list, (past member introductions, general chats, under the ford models (Focus, Fiesta, CMAX, Kuga etc...)

 

You have the "Ford Modifications and Projects" area, you click Ford Projects and builds, and then your there! or here as the case may be!

ok thanks. i started the car up earlier left it running it started going abit lumpy and sounded like it was going to switch of but i revved it up and it was fine for another couple mins and then do the same again. im going to change the plugs tomorrow see if it helps but im doing a service on it any way. its left a patch of petrol on the ground from the exhaust. where is the best place to find parts for this granada. so far the parts i need is two front heater switches for the seats, sill panel for drivers side rear, tailgate struts and headlining and thats it for now. the rear electric seats work great and everything works right. should take it out for a run down the duel carriage way see if it gets up to temperature right as it moves a very very tiny bit when its sitting there running for half hour
