  2. Nice to look back at the pictures mate, seems like ages ago now!
  3. Good to meet you Sunday mate! Looks like you have a good project there, the interior looks mint. Stick at it, that's going to be a great car once it's sorted
  4. That was an epic day swapping the engine over. We need to go for a proper drive in the mk3 some time. Great pics by the way, I'm looking awesome in most of them...
  5. Ive just caught up with all the posts, as Ive said before, what youre doing with this car is so good, watching your videos gives me the inspiration to go out and work on mine! Really looking forward to seeing this beautiful car and catching up with you Pete when its finished
  6. Coming on well mate! I polybushed mine last year, but left the original springs on, I got some replacement ones but they were way too high!
  7. Looks good, im like the others, modifying them is fine, its your car after all!
  8. That orange is a great colour, never seen that interior before!
  9. I like the look of that, nice colour! I cant be too far away from you mate, im down the road in Bury
  10. Sweet! Glad to hear it passed, will be good seeing this out and about mate!
  11. Nice 2 door you have there, SLW 513R mentioned earlier used to be owned by me, except it was blue when I owned it! Thread hijack over, best of luck with the sale
  12. Great models, ive got a Vanguards Granada im supposed to be converting into a replica of my one, I never seem to have the time to finish it!
  13. My old Mk4 GL was known as the Caramac Car, as the seats were the same colour as Caramac bars, I had a beige Mk4 estate once that the missus called the Sh**ty Biscuit. I used to have an Orion that was called The Smoke Machine due to its worn valve oil seals, and my first Mk2 Escort was known as The Wombat. My Cortina dosent have a name but I do have a Marina called Myrtle...
  14. I think this is a good idea, making a list of all surviving Mk4s would be interesting. Il post my car up if you start a post. As you can see from my sig, I don't mind giving out my reg...
  15. Loving these radio modification videos, they are really impressive! I liked the look you get with the LEDs a good mod that dosent look out of place. I would like to modify my Granada radio for USB etc one day...I may have to give you a shout about it mate!
  16. I like it, sometimes it good to do something different! Keep up the good work
  17. Nice car there mate, I like the de badged grille as well
  18. Thanks for all the ads and help everyone, im useless at prices, I don't like to think about it too much, I just enjoy fixing and driving them mostly! V6ghia I know what you mean, if the car was involved in an accident id always prefer to have my own car back and repair it, but if something worse happens to it I guess an agreed valuation would be good
  19. That Ghia looks beautiful in orange, don't think ive seen one in that colour before
  20. Its insurance renewal time, and this year I'm thinking I should really get my cars on agreed valuations. The only problem is I'm not really sure what I should put for my Cortina. I guess its the price of what it would cost to replace it, and I usually look on eBay to see what they make, but not all that many crop up on there these days. Its a 1600GL, rust free, never been welded, with good interior and a full respray. The running gear was rebuilt/reconditioned last year by myself, polybushed etc but the engine bay is in original condition (next on my to do list, along with an engine rebuild!) Don't get me wrong, this isn't an ego boosting post, I just want you guys opinions on what you think its worth Thanks in advance people
  21. Love that old photo! Yeah I remember the white GL with the green interior at the Yat, it was parked to another white GL with blue interior. I was thinking at the time it was a shame I didn't have my white GL with me that year, all three would have made a good picture. Good luck with your search, hope you find it mate!
  22. Only just noticed this thread, awesome looking mk5 mate, looks really good!
  23. Looking good mate! First time ive seen proper pics of this one, good to see its going back on the road
  24. Ive seen a couple pics of this on Facebook but its good to see some proper pics, what a stunner! The yellow really suits the car mate. Well done and best of luck with finishing it off, looking forward to seeing this next year hopefully!
