    Yes thats the type, but they different lengths, I think you need one that 1.2 -1.4 meters as the std one is 800mm long (outer cable) but is to short. I got mine from a ford rally supplier in the midlands but carnt remember to name, RS RALLY PART OR DESIGN I think.I have rechecked and the cable you have 160921723940 should be ok as long its 110cm long on the outer cable, give Burton power a ring as they are very helpfull.

    Yes and I used a spray glass polish, so when I drive over these boy racers they can see what a real car looks like under the bonnet. I cleaned and polished the brake calipers today so they look the part behind my new wheels when they get fitted.

And a treat for the Cabrio for christmas I ordered some new 17" alloy wheels and hopefully Mrs Cabriobob will buy the tyres !!!!(I havent told her about the wheels yet as she will go apeshit so I have to keep the car covered up for a while)
    !7" wheels are going to be a bit obvious, aren't they Bob - even to a disinterested better half? How bad is her fury?
    What rim did you choose?

    To the other half wheels are round things with black rings on them. she will only find out if looks at the bank statement and I dont think that will hapen as I do internet banking and she does not.Its what you call being in control..... I think !!!!! and no complaints yet.

    Hi Lee
    Cabrio's fine, took a trip to see David Billings[Doug and liz's son] about making me a bracket for the towbar I got from Bryan Newall. Looking at the possibility of a Folding camper so I can do more of the 'runs' next year . Put it back in a freezing cold garage covered in sh--. can hardly move in there to do much anyway as most of available space is taken up with model racing yacht I'm building. Looking forward to a couple of weeks in St. Lucia end of Feb to warm my old bones. Shame the Marlin is't going too!!! Merry Christmas to you all.
