  1. I checked the Motomobil website, they are now listing the left hand mirror Taunus TC, 70-74 the single picture is not great, I will ask for more info just to make sure, However these have been 'out of stock' for a long time
  2. 'Bunkie Knudsen' Wow really did'nt know that was the reason, thanks for that don't know where I heard the nose thing about the bonnet.............., but I am correct that the mk3 type is referred to as Knudsen in Germany?
  3. my car is a two owner from new , I believe this to be the original fitted o/s mirror, the original paint was underneath the gasket.
  4. I have been looking on Ebay Germany under 'Taunus Knudsen spiegel links' think the Knudsen bit, is their nickname for the big nose style bonnet they fiited on TC1 Taunus cars. one will turn up, cheers
  5. Remember the 'Extra Value' range'........ GT's got a bit of wood round the clocks, cloth faced seats and not much else, just really using up the parts stock before the mk4 came out.

    Mk3 Wheeltub

    Thanks Neil, Yes I have made similar repair panels for my Mk3, half floor etc, I started back on the car yesterday and to keep up the momentum, one repair at a time is still the way to go. Expressed can be very expensive at times, in comparison to say Mk2 escort sections which are easily affordable from a few sources, necessity is the mother of invention , as they say. I'm on the home straight now, i have a new rear quarter, new rear valance, and inner arch section to go on, once the tub repairs are done, so looking forward rather than back, Cheers Garry

    Mk3 Wheeltub

    HI , I had a look round the local breakers, but there was no obvious similar size wheel tubs that would have worked for me, Anyone out there breaking a mk3/4/5 bodyshell with a decent offside rear wheeltub for repair sections? let me know, If not, I can repair this , but i'm not working with much!!! Cheers Garry

    Mk3 Wheeltub

    Yeah, I was thinking of taking a few measurements and heading down the breakers (last resort), Unfortunately I don't own an english wheel, I will see if SW Cortina turns something up, or anyone else who has got a tub section kicking around, Let me know

    Mk3 Wheeltub

    I don't know for sure but someone will know, are Mk4 & Mk5 tubs the same as Mk3, other than the inner edge, which I know is different from the Mk3, as the Mk3/4/5 pattern part repair panel needs to be sliced/welded to reduce the radius of the arch for the Mk3 rear quarter, I used a MK5 'Ski-Jump' section which was a great fit, On the off chance anybody used Granada/Transit/Fiesta etc sections to repair?

    Mk3 Wheeltub

    Anyone chopping up a scrap Mk3 cortina shell, I'm looking for a useable Offside wheel tub for repair sections , Yes anything can be repaired, and I am prepared to cut out and make repair panels if needed. Just need a decent section to graft in, I have a pattern part inner wheel arch panel, which will come in handy at some point, If you have something that might work. let me know. Thanks Garry
  15. Appreciate the offer, But I already have a guy with a 2000e green sundym but he is in Dorset, I'm up in Glasgow............ It's always the same other end of the country, Hopefully get one nearer to home, Cheers mate thumbup
  16. Hi, I'm looking for a decent, Green tint, Heated, sundym rear windscreen for a Mk3, You wouldn't have one of these knocking around? Cheers Garry
  17. Hello again, what do you think?
  18. Hello Again Not been on BSC for a long while, still working away on my Mk3 2000GT facelift restoration Recently I picked up a tombstone GT drivers seat for my car, to replace a period wolfrace bucket seat that was fitted back in the day. Now , my car was pretty original (2 owner) and the passenger tombstone seat was in good condition, but there is a difference in the thickness of the headrest between drivers & passengers seats, odd? I know this sounds strange, but both seats are later facelift 4Dr GT seats and there is a 1/2" difference, pass on standard 'extra value' beta trim, drivers on standard black/dark grey velour, never been reupholstered, and definitely not toyota. Anyone else came across this, I would be interested to know Cheers Garry
  19. Hello, It's been decades since my Mk3 had front wings fitted, I have replaced most of the bulkhead & inner outer scuttle panels. I can't remember if all of the front wing mounting bolts are the same type, U-clip & self tapping bolt with built in washer. Are the A- Post wing bolts including the lowest, of the same type as used on the wing rail? I have a tub full of rusty oddments previously used for securing such panels............... Seasons Greetings Cairn15
