  1. £3.5k for a rusty base spec mk5? You'd have to be completely stupid.
  2. Whereabouts are you? I have a set in WA10.

    I wouldn't think so too. I've fitted 3 and never had to worry about the tank. Just be aware that the estate and saloon ones are different. I was also told once that the mk3 is slightly different again from a 4 or 5 due to where the number plate is, but I'm not sure how true that is.
  4. I'd best go buy a litre of whisky for the duration of reading one of his listings then.... Edit: I see there seems to be a good amount of bidding even within a couple of hours of it starting. A cynic might suspect friends shill bidding to inflate the price.

    Used mk2 wings

    Hi. They're not mine, they belong to a friend. If you're interested drop me a PM and I'll provide you his number. Dave.

    Used mk2 wings

    A friend of mine wants to offload the wings pictured below. He suffered a significant stroke and although is recovering he's realised that his days of crawling around cars are over. They're in St Helens, either J24 of the M6 or J7 of the M62. I'd personally describe them as useable but needing work but I guess apart from maybe putting an interested party in touch it's nothing to do with me. He's said £200 for the pair.
  7. If the MTOC can't help, I found this chap on Facebook can remanufacture them: Montageteile / Mounting Brackets Autoplas Weyer Reproduction
  8. I have a few mk4 front screens, though I think I already replied to your FB post. Located off J7 M62.

    Wanted: 2.0 axle

    Anyone got one for sale in the NW? Mate of mine has had his go 'bang' on his mk3 saloon so needs a replacement. GS Escorts want an open cheque to sort it (unsurprising if you know them). Cheers.
  10. I've got one in the garage somewhere, but I'm nowhere near you (WA10 postal area). I wouldn't have anything to put it in either.
  11. Not sure if it'll be what you want, but I have the gear lever surround cut from a mk5 that was scrapped years ago. Maybe 3 inches past the lip that secures the gaitor. If you don't get exactly what you need by then I'll also be at the show.

    Pictures, price, and location are usually a good idea.
  13. Interesting post. Maybe some pictures of your work, a link to any websites, prices, and what would/wouldn't be included in that price will get you more replies.
  14. You've got me following this now too. My mk4 will be going for it's dip soon and I naively presumed I'd somehow be able to reconnect these, possibly making them a little longer to drain straight out instead of into the sills.
  15. On the main forums page, pretty much at the very bottom in the middle there's a "The moderating team" link which will list this for you.

    I hope you're going to buy me a beer at The Yat, seeing as you've already offered it to me for free but now you're chasing the big bucks! :D

    I'll have it if you can store it for me until I'm next in the area? Maybe some time in 2019/20.
  18. There was a place in Liverpool, one of Stevo's mates, and I know a chap in Southport. Would be interested to know recommendations myself though.
  19. What's a "final" roof?
  20. Hi Dan. Whereabouts are you based? Any pictures?
  21. Yes I am, but the tank is in my unit and I've already brought the motor home that I'm taking. I'm not going to be able to get it before Sunday.
  22. I have one in my unit, but TBH I don't have a pallet or box that it could go in, and I doubt you'd want to drive to St Helens to pick it up.
  23. If it was closer to me I would. Thanks again. As for the manufacturer of the s/s, I'll dig the paperwork out and take a look.
  24. Thanks for the offer, but you're probably right. It'd probably be a 4 hour return drive. :thumbup:
  25. PM sent on behalf of a 1-5 club member and registered member of this forum.
