I love that! It appears that some ne’er-do-well has removed the Ford O/E bent coat hanger aerial and shoved an arrow straight telescopic device in its place, which looks great but would cost a few points in the concours.

That's yellow paint for you, most transparent stuff there is apart from water. A slight difference in the primer and two panels of yellow from the same gun can look as different as oranges and bananas. It looks fine from where I'm sitting.

I don't like Fords :twisted: ,I bought it on a whim, as i learned to drive in one, and it had had only one owner for most of it's life . And a £9500 service history. It's had 37 condensers ,and 148 spark plugs in its life ...and I'm hoping one day i'll open the shed and it's turned into an HB Viva :oops: . A pale green one.. :mrgreen:
