      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. My 1St Ford

    Thanks, but iv checked these. The 1300 is 3mm difference and the company with the rs2000 rear silencer didn't have anything for mk2 1600.

    I have looked everywhere for the original stock exhaust and I'm so close. I have 3 out of 4 pieces. I just finished coating these 2 pieces with VHT. I need the last original piece which is the rear silencer. Can anybody point me in the direction? I want this car to be as original as possible .

  5. Rolling restoration. In stages, starting with the engine bay 32 dgav webber prior clean up Carburettor after clean up After market exhaust welded to stock exhaust. (Not my work) will be replacing with a original stock exhaust once I get the final piece, rear silencer. Wrong alternator fitted prior to me buying. Something else I had to undo. , I wonder what else I will find the further I go :) it's all part of the learning

    Thanks, Ill check those sites. Its so hard trying to keep the parts original when they are not in Production and end up paying more than you should for either slightly used parts or new old stock parts. Plus side Just found powder coating and shot blaster workshop local to me. :). I will keep you posted. Thanks

    Thanks, she runs well. I agree. Trying to find original ford parts is a absolute nightmare. So il settle with some after market parts but even they are hard to find for some thing's. iv already started pics of the car in, out and under.I just need help setting the thread up.
