    vv carb wanted

    I think somewhere in my many storage spaces, l have an inlet manifold for a OHC twin choke Weber, if l can find it, you can have it for the cost of postage, first l have to find it, if you want to go down the route of a twin choke at a later stage.

    The Doctor has a MK5 2.3 for sale.

    Above is very true, l always try to get on with my MOT tester, and he knows that l will straight away ie the same day put anything that was advisory to good, so nearly always no advisories, but there is garage that unless l am really desperate for a MOT, l avoid, a good decent car would get probably 5 advisories, just to cover his ar*e, but VOSA are becoming a nightmare apparently.

    C3 auto gearbox

    Selling or buying? The trouble with any auto box if buying second hand, is what has it been through, l am always interested in a second hand good condition, reasonably priced C3 as a spare for my Granada.

    Probably the over use of silicone weighing the engine bay down has forced the back end up.

    Cheers, my 2.3 Ghia doesn't have the original supplying invoice, but it has some unusual accessories.

    Ghia badges missing from the wings and is that rust on the nearside rear inside arch !!!!, I still like it, but you can't really tell how good the gutter trim is, because of his pictures.

    That is what l would have thought, a lot of people paint RS alloys black, which is incorrect.

    How do you know it is a S, shocks will be long gone, what other features would or should it have?

    I own two Ghias, and neither has diamond cut alloys, but they will have, and l wouldn't have thought they were painted white, but l have been wrong on several occasions. Local engineering company allows me to use there big lathe to do my own diamond cutting, l have done them before by hand, 600, 1000, 2000, 4000 foam polishing mop and G10, takes forever. The Ghia in question does look a fine example, reserve is less than £10k, so £9999.99 buys it. I wonder why there are no underbody shots or cross member or rear axle shots, those are the areas l would be looking at, because they are very time consuming to restore.

    Apply to DVLA,if it is a UK car there must be some "trail" you can follow up on, no matter how long it has been off the road.

    Wanted Front Valance inner and outer mk4

    That was really unfortunate, can't help you with the panels, got a pair of Mk4 wings, waiting for that elusive 2.0S to turn up.

    Mk1 4 door roof

    Are the A pillars and gutters any good and are the gutters on the C posts any good, if yes, l would buy them off you pending price, depending on where you are, l could remove them.

    Chroming Bumpers - Mk2 Cortina

    No, l mean £12.00 a square inch, there are plenty of places that will do a sh*t job, just a small selection of components normally come to £300.00, what about the stainless steel replacement ones, they would work out cheaper.
