  5. Evening all, I'm really wanting to complete the rear axle so have had a really big push on it today. Have assembled one side of the brakes, happy with the outcome... even if nobody else sees them.

  15. Another nice little mod I'm going to do is fit Hillman Imp/Hunter front indicator/park lights. All the works Mk1 Escort rally cars ran these lights and i also fitted them to my rally car when I built it. So after I made I template of the light unit I set about modifying the front panel.
