  5. Time has come to sell my mk3 gt, some of you know that I've not been well of late so I will be selling my car, highly modified under the skin but looks standard, it has a turbo charged 2.5 4 cylinder 16 v, 6 speed lexus gearbox, lsd, big brakes all round, modified coilover front suspension, ( this thing handles like you wouldn't believe! ) it could do with a paint, I have new bonnet and wings, it's not rotten but I used it! Some of you know the car and some know me, not going to give it away if the front coilover suspension worries you I have a stock 2.3 front beam compete to go with it, car's got power steering, super duper alarm with central locking, tints all round, if you want 500bhp and 456 lbft in and you need to be able to drive, it's 10 grand, no rush to sell, I love it to much! txt Steve first as I can't answer the phone straight away and I'll get back to you, all the best, Steve.

  8. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="wolfrace" data-cid="664024" data-time="1508437862"><p> Good to see you back Steve.</p></blockquote> Just keeping me hand in mate 😎 lol
  9. What part of the rear quarter is that? Ah got it, how far down from the roof is that?
  10. You can't beat shell up restoration and modifications, to find out all the little changes made over a production run even something silly like really early mk3s had different nuts on the door hinge studs,,,there's a thin line between, expert and anorak, 🤔 still trying to work out which one I am! , it can get annoying if you go to shows and you see something that shouldn't be on that year car and the guy will tell you "that's original" when you know for fact that it wasn't even made till the year after his car was produced and sold new! , be careful Pete it can get obsessive mate! 😎 👍
  11. There was a time when my interest in mk3s was such that I wanted to know everything about them, and j reg or early cars in particular, you can't just under learn stuff! , it's great to see Pete doing basically what I was doing years ago but now with even more trickery!, I've always tryed to modify the mk3s under the skin, as it were running gear and switchgear, and petes taken that to another level 👍
  12. Not bad Pete, but different hinges on doors, card kick panels, square corners to boot, front doors and wing corners, different inner front crossmember ( behind front valance), brake pipes different routes (3 routes) centre bearing carrier bracket, fuel line route, roof lining panels at side of rear parcel shelf, rear lamp inner brackets to hold lamp 3 types, gutter rail change, boot floor pressing 3 types between introduction and 73, glove box knob, heater intake, front bumper bracket mountings hole spacing, there's more but I don't want to be picky! But I have had a lot more mk3s
  13. Pre face-lift wide chrome rubber and trim fit straight into face-lift shell, I've done it hundreds of times I've even put wide chrome mk3 screen and trims in a mk4!
  14. Why not fit the Sierra power rack?
