Surely a Mondeo would have been a single sided slidi...

wanted se6a standard soft boring suspension

Are you sure it's a damper / spring issue and not a seizing trunnion/wishbone connection issue though, I've had my 5a up in the air for 6 months whilst working on it and now sits like a preying mantis with zero suspension movement and I'm sure it's down to seizing trunnion connections so a rebuild i...

Claim to fame

I went to school with Mick Hucknall and my Uncle taught woodwork to Simon le Bon
And I had a pee next to Howard Kendal at Everton's ground, no he wasn't manager at the time, more one of many ex managers.

Scimitar SE5 Car radiator needed

Contact Graham Walkers in Chester, they are selling alloy rads and fans as a kit at the moment for not much more that the cost of a recore and fan in the UK at the moment.

eBay scam listings

I'm on this Ebay Vehicle Scam Alert pages,(closed group, you'll need to join to see pages I'm afraid) it's surprising how many times one advert keeps coming up time and time again even though this group notifies ebay who remove it for it to only pop up again and again, the item below has been on 20 ...

Wishbone swap

I believe from a Jim King post on FB about the same topic that same side swapped is the way to do it, no need left to right as well, considering you may end up replacing bushes, trunnions and fitting kit with all the expense that incurs may it not be cheaper to buy new adjustable seat dampers and as...

Chassis coating

Geraint, I purchase my Rust Buster stuff direct from the manufacturer TBH I find then to be as reasonable priced as any other, one thing to note though, I had an issue with the grey turning all gritty like someone had dropped sand in it, I spoke to Rust Buster and they acknowledged the problem with ...

Chassis coating

That's the stuff I use Geraint, though for some reason that seller has the black £23 more than aluminium? also similar produced by Bilt Hamber, I think I would be using Rust Buster's zinc rich epoxy primer first though. Bilt Hambers equivalent are cheaper but a 2:1 mix ration, the Rust Buster one at...
