I have added a few new items this week...I've been asked quite often for the studs that hold the rear lights in place. These are now availible in the Nuts & Bolts Section. Many Mk2 owners have been after the clips that hold the side chrome on, these can now be found in our Clips & Grommets Section. Have also added some love to the boot lights, check out the clickable piccies below. Also I have managed to source the half nuts that hold the reverse lights on. All set for Ford Fair at Silverstone on Sunday, all pre-orders are ready. Let's hope the weather is kinder to us than it was last year (we got a biblical downpour as we packed away!)

 

26/07/2011

***IMPORTANT***

There has been a mix-up in the packaging department! Steering Rack Bolts & Engine Mount Bolts have been mixed together. If you have bought either of these over the past couple of months please get in touch and I will replace them for you.

I'm off to Ireland for a few days to collect a car.  I will be back by Saturday I hope.

 

18th Jan '07

I have started adding active buying links to the new parts section.  I am using Paypal, but you don't need a Paypal account to purchase.  It's quick and it's secure.  Have a look!

Here we have a lully looking mex.  One of my first overseas customers was Knut Iverson from the north of Norway.  They are dead serious about our cars over there as this picture will surely testify.  Knut has asked me to acknowledge ALIMAX MOTORSPORT for the production and design of this babe:

The rubber on those FAT rims!  Ooohhhhh, suits you!

Well, the party season is over now till the summer so I will try and give the site a bit more of my time.

It's interesting to see how far flung our cars can be, I am going to be featuring these cars on this splash and the first to grace our page actually is not that far flung but has got to be the rustiest ever! (I know it's a MK2, but hey!) Chris said that there were still some good bits to be had from these 2 lust buckets

Is that a dead tiger in the foreground or some funky seat cover :)

Looks like the strut has popped through on this one and there aint even an engine in

there pushing down!

Thanks to Chris from Hampshire for sending in these photo's  Here's his WIP Mexico:

 

Looking nice Chris, keep up the good work buddy.  He is looking for a wiper arm wind deflector, so if you have one drop me a line and I'll pass on your details.
