    Re: Back axle Cortina Estate, Issues

    Re: Cabrio rear light covers.

    Not sure on the thickness, it was an old cover for a refrgeration unit, probably 0.5 to 1mm. I could have a look later tonight after work, currently sowing Barley in my tractor!

    Re: Cabrio rear light covers.

    I found that the top curved part was too flexible if it was only attached along the top fold. So when I was cutting the shape out of one piece of stainless I allowed for small tabs at the two bottom...

    Re: Berlinetta Old English White colour code

    Ebay sometimes has one pop up. I seem to remember one about a year ago and unbelievably it got no bids. It was the other end of the country from me or else I would have tried to save it.
