Hi Jim, Yep doing it myself with my brother and a couple of favours called in. sis is going to have a go at recovering some door cards Thanks Hans may have to take you up on the lenses, got some in the garage somewhere but I know they are not the best spent few hours tonight just getting the old glue of the roof
  14. Had major work a few years ago so its in reasonable shape new wings required (old one will repair but got 2 good second hand ones) and a few repairs here and there that's about it really for structure cosmetics are a bit more(so far) going for a tidy up on the cockpit wiring as its all over the place. and introduce a few modern items (usb charger,stereo, central locking and boot popper) new front lights The interior has always been a bit of a mix since I have had the car, so interior is just going to be black Hans, unless you know of a cheap GXL trim for a 2 door :rolleyes: All this time I have had this car I could not get the clock to work, after a complete strip down to the cogs a good clean and little light oil it working, going to leave it on test overnight and see what happens

  18. Had an e-mail from a guy near swindon: Hi Mate, I'm about to move house due to impending babies, and I've come across a selection of MK3 parts in my garage that have been there for ages, it's headlights rear light clusters, door handles, hinges, bits of trim seals etc, I dont want anything for them I just want rid, but obviously I dont want to just bin them. Whats the best/easiest way for doing this? Regards Barry. If anyone is intrested PM me and I can send over his details. If anyone gets them a donation would be helpful :angel_not:
  19. looks like a nice car and well worth the money, any chance of some pics of the engine bay, Thanks. :) I am afraid he did not send any over..
  20. Had another e-mail from Keith about this car, it did go on the site in July but had no takers. He has asked for me to put it back on and asked me if the money was to much. I said thats down to whoever wants it. So an offer I think he would consider. If anyone is interested PM me and I will pass on details... My father has just been told that he can no longer drive due to failing eyesight. He is the second owner and has owned the car from 12 months old and 6,000 miles. It is all original it has always been maintained and garaged you will see how clean the condition is from the pictures. I am sure that the first enthusiast to see will buy it £2,000 serious buyers only. Year 1982, 74,000 miles Atlantic blue M.O.T until March 15th 2011 Taxed until Feb 2011 My father lives in Cumbria so because of his age I am trying to deal with it for him. My contact number is 07967 XXXXXX the local garage will verify history although he has numerous paperwork as well. I have taken some pictures to show excellent original condition. Kind regards Keith
  21. Had an e-mail from a John Webb. Open to offers. if anyone interested PM me and I will pass on contact details. I have 1967 Cortina SW London. SJJ 485F Bodywork rather ropey but the interior is the original WHITE. Pretty good condition. Anyone interested?
  22. lol could not tell you .. someone e-mailed it to me and asked if I could post it, I thought one of you guru's may know and jump at a piece of rare stuff :thumbup: so does anyone know who he is ?????
