  1. Yes it was. Just got the UK plates issued. Collected all the RHD stuff to do the conversion but making it simple to reverse.
  2. Working or not, only really need front plate with main beam lamp to fit to a neg earth counter. Many thanks.
  3. Bit confused. Could someone please simply describe the types of box fitted to the Cortina Mk1? I have heard 3 rail, then I have read 2000E then I have read that a 2000E is a 3 rail!!!! Did the 1200 and 1500 use the same box? Was the GT box different (ratios??) Is the Cortina Mk1 box the same as an Anglia 105E box? Many thanks!!!
  4. Just acquired. June 2021. Using as is and making a list of work to do, minimal as car is near mint, while collecting bits for LHD to RHD conversion. Plan is to make the conversion look standard but retain the ability to reverse it. More photos when I can compress them to fit limits!!
  5. Still looking good RHD steering box (pref GT). Steel dash from airflow car, or most of it ! Would consider basket case donor vehicle. Thanks
  6. Just fitted a set of steel 5.5jx13 with 20mm offset to my 1500GT. The threaded portion of the strut ball joint just touches the balance weights on the inside rim. The steel weights are bigger than the old lead ones. Anyone had this problem please?
  7. Hi, has anyone got a photo of the front number plate brackets where 1/4 bumpers are fitted please? Some cars have the plate screwed on flat but facing down, some have a vertical plate which I think looks better. Car not drilled as it had a stick on on the bonnet. Thanks...
  8. Here you go.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-GT-Cortina-Mk1-pair-of-Macpherson-struts-for-refurb-/133789058064?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  9. Thanks, yes, the accelerator has a much longer rod which runs over to the passenger side. Did you make one up or go for a cable?
  10. Found a mk2 steering box. Looks the same but with adjuster in different place. Does anyone know if they fit a Mk1 please?
  11. Looking for the above for my LHD to RHD conversion. Column not needed. Pedal assembly with brackets through to bulkhead. Many thanks.
  12. Thanks but keeping it all original. Has anyone done it and retained the original steering and pedal box set up please? Dash looks trickiest but with the 2 apertures requiring the insert shell of brackets changed over.
  13. Hi, just done an intro below and happy to be here! Has anyone done a Mk1 LHD to RHD conversion please? Just bought a very clean LHD GT and looking at the pros and cons of conversion. Looks like the steering box is handed but most of remainder looks straight forward apart from dashboard. Brackets for column and for dials looks tricky!! Pictures soon.
