Seen that one Iain, looks like a good price, decided to leave it for now anyway, got enough on my plate with the Escort, the Beemer would have to go and thats not going to be the easiest thing to sell, would probably be stuck with it for a while, struck me that having three completely impractical cars would be bonkers (even for me :lol: ), still really fancy one, will get one eventually :wink:

I think I prefer the look of the defender if I am being honest. Guy at uni had an ex army mark 1 (I think) and when it actually worked, I remember not being able to talk to him when we were moving. If you cannot hear the stereo then it's a deal breaker in my book :lol:

Fit a louder stereo! Plenty room in the back for speakers and amps.

Latest in the Escort saga :) , just realised i've spent nearly £700 in the last few months :shock: , think i may need a sponsor :lol:

Was on the lookout for a pair of backwards TVR manifolds as i decided these were my only option due to space constraints, won these Chimaera ones on E-bay last week :)

Quite a last minute bidding frenzy for them, turns out they are popular for twin Turbo conversions.

Image

As standard downpipes are Mah OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOsive, cut these off as i'll be reducing the ends somehow and welding on three bolt flanges.

Gash bits could do as spare funnels for the Titanic :lol:

Image

Also scored this Mallory dual points Dizzy, £55, a bargain as a new one is £200 odd, lovely thing it is, body is machined from billet.
