    Boot harness very urgent

    I thought he was talking about the harness, in the boot lid itself?

    Boot harness very urgent

    Those questions might be better answered if you go to a wreckers and suss out the various models in person. I can't think of any real differences. They'll only have number plate and boot lock actuator wiring I think?

    Tis broken

    Also, can you take a pic of the upper and lower radiator hoses for me? Specifically where they connect to the engine and to the radiator.

    The fuel regulator is the canister looking thing, at the end of the fuel rail, up at the firewall. It has a vacuum line running into the top of it. The map sensor, is a rectangular plastic box thingy, with a plug and vacuum line. It lives just under the edge of the radiator coolant tank, also up near the firewall.

    Check fuel pump, fuel regulator and/or Map sensor.

    The wheels, I really like though! edit - what about doing the van, in a rat-rod theme? satin black, widened red Lotus Cortina GT steel wheels/stock dog dish hub caps/whitewalls, and some cool 50's pinstriping and business logo writing on the sides in bronze/gold/silver?

    Koni Shock Settings

    Straight out of the box setting here. I thought the rebound adjustment was just to account for wear mainly?

    Here are a couple of Ford colours (not sure if pearl or non-pearl) - That redish colour you (or someone) mentioned earlier, is called Seduce - There is also a very deep red/brown/black colour called velvet - Or Green/blue chameleon colour, called Mystic -

    Engine parts with the checkered pattern on them

    Pretty sure that's just a standard XF EFI (bosch) AFM, mounted upside down The chequered pattern, is just reinforcing in the casing underside.

    You're not thinking of the EFI HKS turbo manifolds are you?
