  2. citron xsara 2.0 16v spare or repair no ecu or key it has been standing for over 10 years the car is not rotten cash on clection Current bid: £100, reserve not met. Goodness knows what happened to this but a reserve over £100 seems optimistic at the moment. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333640417544
  3. To be fair to Ford they were made by Lucas in this case, Ford probably just asked them to make sure they rusted! That's why I'm going to strip all this hardware back and repaint it, I'm half tempted to smother it all in grease once it's installed. Disappointing to hear that the door might be a manufacturing issue. Maybe I'll just have to stick a second seal along the top of the door.
  4. Just as I suspected the headlights on the car were knackered. One appears to have been made in 1998 and the other in 1999 so they are almost 10 years newer than the car for whatever reason. I've got both of the lenses off and have saved the seals from the backs too so it's not all going to waste. Old Headlights (1) by Matt S, on Flickr
  5. Some progress has occurred. The headlights that came on the car are in a pretty poor state. The reflector in the offside unit is rusting away and I know that the lower adjuster on the nearside has disintegrated at the very least. Judging by the amount of silicone sealer smooshed all around the front lighting I'm guessing that the rest of the hardware is pretty FUBAR, and it looks awful too.

  6. Not very much sadly. I got it moved into my sisters garage and was just about to have it moved to a workshop the get the chassis welded but that was scheduled to happen two days before lockdown started so had to call that off. I went by that garage today seeing as we can meet other people outdoors now but they didn't seem to be open. I hope it get it sorted very soon! Garaged at long last! by Matt S, on Flickr
  7. Does one little bottle do a whole car or is this more of a sample size?
  8. I have been hoping for a RADwood event in the UK for a while after watching and reading about their events in the US. After emailing the organisers to express an interest in such an event a little while ago they confirmed to me before officially announcing it that a UK event was in the works! For those that haven't heard of RADWood yet Mercedes Market article "RADWood and Why It Matters" explains it well, here's a truncated overview: The cars at the US events have ranged from anything from and between Ferrari's, period modified Mercedes, Volvos, weird Japanese imports to mint condition

  10. 320 mile round trip to look at a MK2F Polo Genesis Coupe. Bought one exactly the same in better condition in a round trip half the distance of the first...
  11. Just got off the phone with Mike who owns the yard and he says it'll likely end up in a museum. They got it from an engineering firm not far away from their yard. It seems they've had it for many years and may have been the same company that built it back in the day. I've got a number and contact name for them and they'll be able to tell me more. He's planning on contacting the likes of the British Motor Museum, Beaulieu and possibly the Lakeland Motor Museum to see if any of them would like to take it on.
  12. It's way louder without carpets and underlay right?
  13. Good point, taken the link out.

  15. The link LS posted on page 1 is literally the only thing I've seen about it and contains the only photo I've seen other than my own from today so I think it's very likely that this is the only one.
