Re: Today I mostly .....

I have made some progress on the Escort. "New" 15" Mondeo Si wheels, fixed fog lights, removed wind deflectors and did a few little other bits. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1504/24019280104_1369544686_c.jpg Including this adapter which draws power from the fusebox and then converts it to 5V and gi...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Nice cluster Zelandeth, reminds me of the Digifiz by VW. Btw, Escort is nice, I got one 1300 L MK2 -75... Arizona Gold Nice. Any pics? In other news, managed to sell the Punto last night for €150 / £110. Which is quite good considering it now has no MOT and the airbag light is on + I kept the head u...

On top of that it needs a few other small...

Re: Today I mostly .....

It's been with me through thick and thin and has always started first turn of the key. Picked it up for £179 and I have invested only £57 (oil, oil ...

Re: Today I mostly .....

Things look quiet around here. Nice ramp, ladanivabelgium. Definitely makes jobs easier. Since I've last posted here, I have done the following to the Punto: - Replaced oil and filter - Put on two part worn Continental tyres on the front - Removed airbag light which came on out of nowhere - Replaced...

Picked up a few VW bits the other day as well.
