  1. I never used to like the Mk5 as they were too modern looking Now I'm a little more mature(well. older) I think they look great. That one has to be the best colour. Looks fantastic
  2. You've done a great job. Looks fantastic
  3. I don't know what you've got but I do know that Hagerty's valuation tool is not accurate.
  4. I'm with Hagerty. Agreed value of £5k with free RAC breakdown cover. I can't remember the exact figure but it was less than £100.(I called them at renewal and they gave me a better deal). Can't comment on what their like if you need to claim though.
  5. Looks fantastic. Love the colour

    the other mk3

    Sounds like quite an adventure!
  8. I look in most days. I give advice when I know it and that's why I don't post much Also haven't actually seen my Cortina at all this year
  9. Not sure what a reasonable price is? I think I paid £20 last year for mine. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/lotus-cortina-mk1-Steering-Cowl/333610603234?hash=item4dacbdd2e2:g:qqAAAOSwogZehlYn https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-MK1-LOTUS-CORTINA-MK2-1600E-GT-LOTUS-BLACK-STEERING-COLUMN-SURROUND/303579046458?hash=item46aeb8a23a:g:N80AAOSwcN9ezU72 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK1-MK2-LOTUS-CORTINA-1600E-GT-STEERING-COLUMN-SURROUND-SUPER-DELUXE/383561936309?hash=item594e12adb5:g:EaEAAOSwnhZeuXUi

    My mk3 Estate.

    Great progress👍
  11. I got mine from Maplins when it was open but same as below: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-3-3-ohm-10W-High-Power-Resistor-3-3R-10Watt/200952607304?epid=19020593830&hash=item2ec9b57248:g:hCAAAOSw~y9ZND0s
  12. I saw it and instantly thought SCAM
  13. My garage is definitely damp at the moment. Rented from council and brambles completely covering it. They are growing in through the asbestos roofing overlaps and water is dripping down the branches onto my car. They've given me a refund but say they can't clear them due to H&S!
  14. Interested on any tips as have had the same problem. Have a feeling it's just got to be used every so often
  15. If they're both flashing together you have an earth fault somewhere
  16. Looks like this is about to be up for sale. Just seen on FB
  17. 2 lovely looking mk2's
  18. I'd be very worried. If it's getting hot it's either undersized for what it's being used for or there is a fault with something it's connected to.
  19. I'd love one. It's one of the many cars my dad owned back in the day. That's why I'm into old Fords, Jags, Rovers, Triumphs etc etc. I often wonder if in 30 years time people will be reminiscing about their parents' old Qashqai, Mondeo, Insignia etc?
