- Where may I find a textbook of manufacturing of the car? (PDF?)

- I look for lighthouses in 5 "

- I look for a condom(hood,great-coat) of roof

- How do you install(do settle) a spare wheel? Make you reinforcements of the back panel(sign)?

- It seems that the meter is the one of a Ford rave-up MK1, can you confirm it to me?

Can you tell us the registration number of this car.

I will not be able to help you out as I am only a recent member myself.

This information might be of use to someone from the club that knows the car and it's previous owners.

I think it is worth trying but the more information you can give, the better your chance of success.


Welcome to the club and I hope you are successful in your hunt.

Regards, Ken

Hello, N is VRG 121Y.

It would be a S7 mk1 sierra but I do not know the year of production.

It seems to me that the engine is a pinto one.

Hi some answers...

the most usual wiper motor is from a mini, the old one, not the new BMW one.



The spare wheel mounts on the back of the car resting on the rear hoop, and

bolts to the back panel with a long stud through one of the wheel stud holes.

The panel must be reinforced usually with plywood.


Kitspares are selling an S7 manual....



This company has a good selection of headlights (phares)



Hope that helps,

My engine windscreen wipers is not a mini.

the problem is that the diameter of my arm is larger than that of the mechanism so they swim in it ...
