    As proven on the sunroof question, your knowledge of Cortina's is second to none and anyone from the outside looking in, you are always trying to help people, so this is a little bit out of order and someone else needs to wind there neck in, AND IT'S NOT YOU.

    I will take more photos on Friday showing the rear of the chassis. The cab has been resprayed in an off white and spare paint comes with it to paint the tub but I was going to probably do it in Venetian Red to match my RS2000 xpack. I was going to fit a similar body kit with xpack alloys.

    Hi all, I have started a facebook page which will hopefully make it easier for people needing spares to get in contact with me as I don't really use these forums too much anymore. Please feel free to join. https://www.facebook.com/groups/485550612063486/

    Never use the integral trans cooler in radiators, instal a separate trans cooler. I worked in a transmission shop for a while and the amount of failed trans cooler/rads was shocking. when the engine coolant gets into the trans oil the auto box needs a rebuild, it’s just not worth the risk.

    I have decided its time to sell on my gt banded steels ,they have had hardly any road use a couple of hundred miles if that and then I took them off the car when I started doing some mods and have been in dry storage since,front wheels are 6.5j with 175/50/13 tyres and rear wheels are 7.5j with 195/50/13 tyres , the rear 195s btw are trailer tyres ,not really for car use but I used them anyway 🙄,spare is a lotus steel painted to match with a new 175/50/13 tyre (different make to front pair) that's never touched the tarmac or even got chance to be put in the boot for that matter. also to come with this lot is a new 175/50/13 tyre same make as front pair and a rattle can although almost empty containing the paint code should they get chipped. wheels have been shot blasted,sealed,etch primed,primed,top coated and lacquered and still look like they did when I put them on. I would like to get £700 for these but any reasonable near offer would be considered and would also need to be collected from Dagenham in Essex. any real genuine interest and I can take pics of them start of the week,below is what they look like when first on the car .

    Out of interest, how much would you think they should sell for? I think the later banded types are more common & therefore cheaper.
