  1. Going to try and salvage the original, but still got my eye out for a new one
  2. Yes, saw these but looking for the complete leg from rear valance to rear jacking point. Thanks Keith.
  3. Yes, iv'e looked, around £500 and 8 week lead time.
  4. Your right, rear n/s corner took a hit, i have a new (good 2nd hand) n/s rear wing boot floor upper and lower panels going back on.
  5. Actually i'm begining to wonder if mine can be repaired, Picture shows the chassis rail compared to the straight one on the drivers side, top arrow shows a kink and the bottom arrows show how the bottom of the chassis rail has been twisted across towards the right
  6. If it's solid Keith, the one on my car is solid but a bit twisted. Is it full length from jacking point to rear valance ?
  7. Hi i'm after a N/S (L/H, Passenger side) rear chassis leg/rail for a MK1 cortina. Thanks.
  8. Agreed, would of thought if oversize it would be stamped with the piston size.
  9. Believe it or not Keith i did give that a thought
  10. Yes it's a lot of money, especially if it's just your hobby and not your business. Easier i suppose if you can share the rent with one or two more people.
  11. Can't even pop round the local farms in the current climate either. and i'd dread to think about rent prices now as well. Ironic thing is i have a huge garden to build a workshop in but it's not accessible by road.
  12. Hi, does anyone know of any workshop/industrial units for rent in the Harlow Essex (or Herts and Essex ) area as i'm looking to start the rebuild of my MK1 Cortina. Thanks.
  13. Bonnet hinge brackets hand welded on.
  14. The plates near the roll bar mounts are on standard shell as well. The HD export shell also has the reinforced rear chassis legs as per Lotus. I have a HD 2 Door shell from South Africa which has the bulkhead to inner wing supports which i'm going to remove as i dont like the look of them. Also the bonnet hinge brackets on the inner wing are hand welded on not spot welded.

  16. Hi, from the flange that bolts to the diff to the tip of the yolk that slides into the gearbox tail housing = 56 inches
  17. I have a mk1 Cortina gt prop in my shed, it will be the same length, i'll measure it when i get a chance. I know they are the same size as i fitted a mk2 series one 1600E prop to a mk1 GT i restored a few years back.

  19. Hi everyone, i'm looking for the panel highlighted in the picture below, N/S -passenger side panel that joins the front panel to the inner wing. Thanks
