  1. Thanks Craig, Fingers crossed....
  2. Hi, Bit of a long shot, but does anyone have the sub-loom piece for the hazard warning light on a Pre-facelift mk3? Any condition, as long as the switch connector is intact. I could probably recreate most of the loom, but the switch connector looks like it is unique to the model. Thanks Rich
  3. Not meaning to hijack, but were these ever fitted to mk3s without vinyl roofs?
  4. Oops - I only just noticed I had a reply to my post. Are you still happy to post one out Craig? Do you want any contribution to postage etc? Thanks Richard
  5. Hi, Does anyone have any of the clips that mount to the inner panel of the door to allow the door pull/armrests to screw in place, and would you be willing to sell me one or more? See picture below for what I mean. I managed to break one when I was trying to clip it into position. Thanks Rich
  6. I think the link above is a general one for each user's active listings. Anyone who clicks on it will therefore just see their own ebay listings, rather than yours.
  7. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="Mk3 Mahem" data-cid="673418" data-time="1526748162"><p> I managed to fit these stainless Capri one's, sorry cant remember if i had to open up hole a bit or if they went straight in. <br /> <br /> <br /> <a href='https://www.tickover.co.uk/shop/contents/en-uk/d334.html'>https://www.tickover.co.uk/shop/contents/en-uk/d334.html</a></p></blockquote> I used these ones, too. Straight fit, no mods and are completely rust proof. I also managed to get stainless straps from ebay.
  8. Is it just the black and red plastic "GT" insert, or the whole gear wheel shaped chrome surround bit as well? If it's just the insert bit, there was a company on ebay that sold faithful eproduction ones. I can find the ebay contact name for you if yiu want to try them
  9. It looks like one of the plastic spacers that fits inside the pivot point on the brake (and other) pedals. The bit that the clevis pin slides through.
  10. I'm wondering if you could feed a long thick guide wire through the drain hole in the top, so that the wire enters the car through the opening behind the kick panel. Then take advantage of the semi-rigid nature of the drain pipe, by feeding it over the guide wire from inside the car and pushing it firmly up into the A-post. The guide wire should then help in locate properly over the drain hole. I need to check mine are still there. Can you see the drain from the footwell inside the car or does it end a good way up the A-post? Jayne said they were only 9" long, so I'm guessing they end pretty high up.
  11. Wow - thanks for the photos Where abouts on the car is the recessed channel that the tube is sitting in on the first picture? Just trying to work out which bit of the car the metalwork is from.
  12. I wouldn't be surprised if the tubes just drained into the sills, that used to be Ford's genius idea with sunroofs until the late 80s - drain them into the sills and let the poor fit-up of the sills drain the water out from there. My sills had rotted away at the front near the A post, so I am wondering if this drain point may have contributed. If you do go the bonding root, I got hold of some 3M Windscreen Bonding Sealer - 08509 which I used on an old Fiesta and it worked a treat for making the seals totally waterproof. It kinda looks a bit like tiger seal when you use it, but it doesn't dry or set, it just remains in its putty like state forever, and is pretty easy to clean up.
  13. So is there no way to get to these tubes without cutting into bodywork? Now worried/curious as to whether they have been removed on my car, or if they're made rubber maybe even perished - as I never even knew these things existed until I read this post. Where do they actually drain to, and is there anyway to check they are there without hacking into the shell? Sorry for hi-jacking your wanted thread.

    Mk3 front valance

    I can also vouch for the Ex-pressed panels one, as I had to get a new valance and a few other bits from them when my car was in the body shop. http://www.steelpanels.co.uk/ They're not the easiest company to work with mainly due to their potentially long lead times, but in my experience the quality of their products has been consistently high.
  15. Thanks Craig - Hope you feel better soon, there are some horrible things going round this year. If you have one that'd be great.
