  1. I asked "Dr Tim" a question on fb related to engine size but got no answer. I've seen a lot of unanswered questions there too. He also happens to be the engineer that street machine mag uses now.

    Dunno.. Nothing wrong with that per se but if I did it, that would be a temporary look.. Not sure if I could live with it and I probably wouldn't do red rims

    It looks like a beast and not that I hate bubbles, just not into them enough to have on a street car. Yeah, rally spec spot lights are a wee bit over the top.

    Lo and behold, what do I spy on the way in today? A brand new dump truck of all things painted in the colours I'm thinking of

    I saw that.. Looked pretty screwed for cuts in the same places as every other escort from what I could see. I can get the bits new that I really need to buy for it, rest I'll make as usual.

    Yes mate, thanks. I'm not in a position to buy anything for a while but I'm sure it will be helpful when I'm ready for it[emoji106]

    I was thinking couple cuts from a stainless garbage can for that bling factor [emoji41]

    I haven't had a chance to do this properly in photochop but this was something I was playing with last night... It's a quick and dirty mock up done in an app on my phone, very limited on what I can do with it but it gives you an idea of what I'm leaning towards. Still not a fan of those bubble arches so they won't be on my van. I'm thinking more of a slight flare or pump like I did on Ron's torana hatch.

    Easier to copy The change in spine dimensions makes this harder to make by hand, but still doable

    Yeah the second one is pretty easy to copy. The first one I posted isn't a straight fold from front to back so it would take more cut and weld but definitely could make something similar.

    That one in this link isn't the exact same part as the one I mentioned above, it's straight along its length but the first one is shaped in width. I can make both of them, the straight one would be fairly simple. The one i linked seemed good value because it's made in 1.6mm which I'd have to piece together rather than fold it, 1.6 would make a difference to the stiffness of the floor big time.

    Hey panko, is this the tunnel you want?

    Yeah I liked that look too, mine will still have rear windows though. The red is brighter than I'd like, you can see the difference here I think the lighter one on the right is brigade and my darker on the left is supposed to be Leyland tartan. I say supposed to be because I haven't found that colour listed elsewhere, just what the previous owner told me he had it done in.
