  1. any ford fitment wheel will be ok (4x108), and you can use spacers to get the correct offset, some come as multi fitment usually 4x108 & 4x100
  2. I didnt have the turbo model but my NA one would get very hot in traffic, i ditched the big rover SD1 rad and went for an Aluminium one from Coolex and fitted it vertically in the nose area, I also made some plates to duct the air into the rad rather than around it, I believe Coolex do a rad with an intercooler attached, It wasnt cheap but fixed my issue.
  3. Agree with Alan, price is high, I sold mine a year or so ago for under £6K (but i wanted a quick sale) and I had fitted brand new guages, leather seats and interior ,exhaust & tyres, it was also one with the "Gold" Titanium finish, so I would say around £5k-£6k is going to be closer . But you never know if the right person comes along
  4. Good to know you can return them if they don’t fit
  5. Although the cockpit is quite large (for a 7 style) I found it difficult to get seats to fit hence the mx5 ones. The vectra seats only just fit and because the tunnel flares out there wasn’t much movement on the runners and you couldn’t get your hand down the side to adjust the backrest. Maybe Alan can measure his seats as I sold my car last year (still got a 7 style though)
  6. Check out Intatrim, they do some really nice seats. The Super Spec originally came with Vauxhall Vectra seats, I fitted some Mx5 heated leather ones into mine so thats another option. https://intatrim.co.uk/
  7. I sold my SuperSpec at beginning of the year (during lockdown) to someone from Weston Super Mare and he saw it on line via video etc and paid a deposit then saw the car a few weeks later and paid the full amount via bank transfer at which point i handed all documentation over to him and then he arranged for a vehicle courier to collect a week or so later. At the end of the day Its all down to if you feel the seller is trustworthy & honest and Ive found most people are. I know I was the seller so a little different to your position.

    The photo was taken july 2020. I think he had a "friendly" MOT station that overlooked the lack of wipers & washers

    I think I recognize the car, belonged to a friend near Liskeard in Cornwall, we did a couple of Autosolos (if its the same car). It was very quick!! Mine was the gold one (now sold)
  10. Usually gauges & senders are matched hence your problem with Capri clocks & sierra sender, you need to find out what the resistance value is of the gauge and find a sender with a similar range. There is an electronic box that would do it for you, cant offer any review of it but maybe someone on here has used one. https://spiyda.com/fuel-gauge-wizard-mk3.html
  11. I upgraded my wiper mechanism to the Lucas one as so much easier (as nelmo suggested). I managed to pick up a 2nd hand setup for about £50, they were fitted into loads of cars Mini,MG and many other classics and the good thing is you can change the sweep by replacing the gear on the motor. I think i went for a 110 degree sweep
  12. 1heres mine that were already fitted when i got the car, the smaller set were some i bought to make wind deflectors but were to small
  13. I know someone down in Devon with a bonnet for sale if your interested (£75), I think he said its for a lightweight but may be of use
  14. Rather than paying for full 12 months why not SORN it over winter, that's what I do and if you know it's going to be off the road for a few months ( repairs or upgrades) then SORN it then. That way you only pay tax for the months your using it
  15. Well just sold my Super Spec so it's on to something new. A Quantum Xtreme, needs some tlc as it's been a race car most of its life I think but boy is it quick!!
