  1. Great, thanks, Nicko and Nelmo. If I understand correctly, you cut the sides of the countersunk screws otherwise they wouldn't fit into the frame? And why use a hardboard screen? If you can take the glass out, can't you just drill into a bare frame? Cheers, Pete
  2. Hi Ian, thanks for your reply. Was there any particular aesthetically-pleasing head on the screw, do you have a picture? Are others using the self-tapping screw method on the Zero, for example?
  3. Hi. I don't have instructions for windscreen fitting with my kit, only for a flyscreen which I won't be using. My question is on the recommended method to attach the windscreen frame to the 2 supporting brackets. Have people used screws, set screws, rivets? What type of head? Did you use a tap if you put screws in? Did you use something different for the fitting process and the final attachment? Cheers, Pete
  4. Hi Chaps, thanks for the replies! In the meantime I'd figured out what Longboarder has posted, I need to get a small loom with sidelight bulb holder, as I do indeed have windows below the main bulbs, you learn something new every day Cheers, Pete
  5. Hi, haven't been on here in a long time! Just a quick question on lights for IVA. If you don't have separate side and head lights on your car, is it okay to wire up the headlights to the sidelight switch - That is, they are the same! Nothing in the IVA manual suggests that the side and head lights have to be physically separate... It's just that my lamp units are only headlight (dipped beam) and main beam, with no separate sidelight. I don't think it matters if you push your column stalk to the sidelight setting and the dipped headlights come on, does it? Cheers, Pete
  6. you still building??

  7. Still in original wrapping from Intatrim
  8. As new, unused pair of seats Cost £282 from Intatrim. Looking for £240 + postage. Cheers, Pete Link: Intatrim Voyager spec
  9. Ok, ta. Did you get the replacement from a Ford dealer, or is it aftermarket?? Pete
  10. Thanks for all the replies, guys The bracket has now been chopped I'm nosey, though, I'm afraid, Chris! Just out of interest, what did the kickdown cable do?? Did it blip the throttle somehow when you change the autobox down? Also, I see that your quadrant is silver - Is there a metal one on some models, or did you paint it? It's just that my plastic one is cracked and a metal one would make a smart replacement... Pete
  11. Hi, I'm in the process of sorting a bonnet bulge at the moment, as my EFi engine is a little too tall. It would be useful to cut down the bracket which holds the throttle cable (see pic), but there is a slot and hole on the right hand side which is clearly there for a reason, but I don't know what! I don't think it was used on the donor Sierra, but can't remember for definite. So can I hack the right-hand side of that bracket off, so that the bonnet bulge fits more elegantly? Cheers, Pete
  12. Silencer now gone! Anyone want my nuts?
  13. Hi All, Having a bit of a clear out and have a couple of things for sale, as follows... 1) A new and unused stainless exhaust silencer box from a Lightweight kit. The box has two 41mm diameter pipe entries at one end (shown in the picture). At the other end is a 57mm diameter pipe exit. The overall length of the box is 400m and the diameter is 130mm. £10 2) Full set (16) of new and unused Wolfrace wheel nuts suitable for cone-seated alloys. The thread is M12 x 1.5mm, the head is hex 19mm and the nuts are 24mm dia at the widest point. £10 Collection preferred from Hove, but willing to post with usual Royal Mail charges added to the above. Cheers, Pete
