  1. Today I summoned up enough courage to venture out into the freezing, baron wilderness that is our garage at the moment.. I promised myself that I wouldn't go back indoors until the glove box was lined with stretch carpet and the inside of the door was reattached. Rater than trying to form four sides from one piece of flat carpet, I decided to do each side, then the back face and bottom/floor in a single piece. As usual, start by cutting out your material: Then back at the car, spray both surfaces with yopur upholstery adhesive of choice and leave it for a few minutes to start to dry a bit: Then work your way around the glove box adding a bit of carpet at a time: After snapping the inside of the door back in place, you should end up with something like this: I noticed after I had taken my phone indoors that there was some spray adhesive to clean off and one small area on the front right of the base to add some more adhesive to as it looks like it lifted slightly as I was trimming it. So those things were done without photographic evidence I am afraid. Perhaps that might give someone else an idea or two, it should certainly quieten down anything in the glove box if it decides to start moving around while driving. Small things I know, but it was damn cold our there!

  3. Im not an engine expert but could you ditch the standard ECU and use the Omex setup? The guys at Omex are super helpful and you can buy the bare loom and set it up exactly as you want. Seems the Ford guys run it on V6's Ford Cologne V6 Dave Ward's Sierra XR4x4 came to him with the standard 2.9litre V6. After tidying the bodywork Dave started to want more from the engine, so a 3.7litre engine was fitted, an Omex 710 ECU http://omextechnology.co.uk/ecu-710.html Just thinking out loud. Andy

  4. Yeah i fitted a remote res when I was running the carbs, to stop them boiling the brake fluid. My brother got it me, I cant remember what he said it was from, maybe a polo ? Fitted great though.

  7. agreed about the straight six but its a massively heavy lump at the front - one of the things that attracted me to the v6 was how compact it is (could have a party between it and a radiator lol)
