  1. Dunno if anyone answered you about realigning your diff..... There's a bolt right through the centre of the spring to hold the leaves together. The head of that bolt locates into a hole on the axle bracket. You can just see it under the clamping plate in your broken leaf picture Hey-presto, diff aligned. *edit* Top Of The Tips
  2. Probably the best looking 56 I've ever seen If you took the hubcaps off it would, without a doubt, be the best looking 56 I've ever seen. That's all I've got.
  3. And a Viking ship. Also West coast mirrors, Cragars & lots of crushed velvet. There's a good chap.
  4. These...... (How much ?!) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hotrod-Chevy-Corvett-Vintage-Thrush-Side-Pipe-Exhaust-Ford-Pickup-Ratrod-Dragcar-/182563113425?hash=item2a819c09d1:g:~qcAAOSwhvFZDgoF
  5. Top end... http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C792509 These...... http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/list/40/sd1/ Are they expensive for over there ? Some don't seem too bad value but I remember when a good one was 500 quid (blah, blah, don't know you're born, etc....)
  6. Nice motor. My first boss had a 1980 V8 5-speed (in 1984). Rough looking sleeper with a cam, Holley, heads, dual pipes etc gave 285 HP. Had a bit of suspension work but his fave mod was welding some angle along the watts linkage, made a big difference. I'd love one but they're all rotted out here.
  7. Your peekups motor, she eez tree feefty ?
  8. Now you're talking. Did I mention fake oil cooler with over-sized pipes ?
  9. I have a psycho-spatial condition that means I cant detect sarcasm. My ultimate Hakosuka dream....
  10. I thank you for your misplaced faith.
  11. The more the merrier ?
  12. Yoinks, didn't think for a moment it would be only me that liked it. I like all the 'wrong' treatments below more than the stock set up. Of course there is no way I can return it to stock now you've told me I should. Maybe some MK 1 Cortina lights would look good.....
  13. The late garnish looks awful to me, and I'm not a big fan of the GT-R end pieces. Actually, I don't really rate Hako's anymore. Stupid old cars. What I'd really like is the early rear lights with the integral reversing light, but the originals are rare as rocking hens horse-shit teeth and the repros just dont fit. Bear with me, it might look good. Won't know till it's done, but nothing irreversible will happen. Also, did you just call me a plonker ? Nice to pop back in, thanks
