Have you seen those fluorescent yellow mk1's anywhere in the Kent area? When I lived in Sittingbourne, I saw them around occasionally and remember them on a club display at a car show I went to at Sittingbourne FC football ground about 10 years ago.

 

I think they were K platers

Yep, two used to live in Sittingbourne, one has now gone up to Scotland, and the other, the saloon, is for sale I believe for £1500.

I just found a somewhat vague photo from that car show and made it worse by scanning it :lol:

 

I was on the Mercedes stand in the foreground with my green 190 and you can see two of the mondy's in the background.

Are those Mondeo's not Citrine Yellow with the RS kit?

Safe now. Everything's lead lined.

Just squeezed into the Signum, which became rather poorly on the way home!

Just bumping this to see if anyone can bring it a bit closer to Kent please? I need to check (using the old bumper) whether it will fit ok in my Fusion. Shitely relay anywhere closer would be great thanks.

 

My MIL's house in Romford would be good!

I attempted 2 jobs on the GLX. The first was to remove another rotting water pipe. I could work out what one of the attachments was (white arrow) but wasn't sure where the other connectors were so left it for now (fail).

 

I thought, oh well, I could take the drive belt off at least. But I don't have a 14mm open/ring spanner for the tensioner, only a socket (fail).

 

An hour of faffing well spent :-(

 

The wheels are as rusty as on the base too....

It looks to hold it in place. The brake pipes look at bit encrusted as well.

I think this is where the rest of the connectors for this pipe are, sort of under the oil filter round the back. Not going to be easy to access from the side really.

Like I say you’ll probably have to hit some of the fixings with the grinder, makes a 10 second job of farting M6/8 nuts holding stuff like this in. Chances are it will rag out with your hands.

The new bumper arrived by Shiply today. Saved about £30 or £40 this way with the help of RantingYoof who I thank for collection and storage!

There was some slight damage inflicted by the seller, but I believe this can be glued. It wouldn't be a Mondy bumper without some imperfections!

I think it is going on the car as is, and I'll get it sprayed in the spring.

There's a lot less of that yellow foam inside than I thought.

The old blue bumper has a bit of 'finishing' trim round the bottom in two halves held on by about a dozen small rivets. All drilled out today, but took two charges for the drill.

Think I got away without damaging it.

So that's what the inside of a Mondeo bumper looks like. As Conrad says I thought there'd be a lot more foamy stuff.

No wonder they're always cracked.
