Would it not have been better fitting your mud flaps with the scren that goes into the rear bumper to secure it ?

 

its how shaw said liam they're set to cover the wheel,iirc these mud flaps are for mk1,2 escorts etc....

there not escort specific gaurds Liam, they look like a generic brand with a ford logo, chances are he set them that far out to completely cover the wheel splash....something the genuine escort ones dont entirely stop.

 

I quite like em, not keen on the escort ones, they never fit entirely flush and flex to much in the sun.

 

wheels look much better in a darker colour, Im pleased to see you didnt go total black, dont think it would have complimented those wheels to much.

 

cheers shaw,i do like the matt black colour though :pancake:

plan is to stick some letters numbers etc....h - hot c - cold etc... then spray the panel satin black then remove the letters numbers etc.. and hey presto green illuminated letters and numbers.

 

thats all folks!

There's a lot wrong with Radio 1 Marc :P

 

Incidentally, I may have missed this in a previous post, but what's the need to move the heater controls?

 

oil pressure,oil temperature and volt gauges :)

 

 

That looks a nice job from rattle cans :)

 

The controls look smart fitted there too

 

And Radio 1 ftw :D

 

cheers got the boot to do next,the spray job on the bumper is actually a lot better match than whoever done the n/s/r arch :)
