my best mate did the same on his chevette! used manta front and rear bumpers. it looked awesome. i'll get some pictures off him
Before you say anything..... no i cant spell or type!

The post above is my own personal opinion, it is not meant to upset or cause offence, if it does bugger off.

That does look good but where do you get it?

You could try comething off a mk1/mk2 escort if you know where to find out the width's, i'm going to try passion ford for that info. Lots of tasty ford bits readily available.

RS2000 chin spoiler? £20 or some gp4 bits?

... so that means I'm sorting out picking it up and sending it to whoever wins does its? Fair enough - my fees are:

Lifitng a finger: 1 pint
Ringing the guy up: 2 pints
Arranging a courier: 3 pints
Going to see it: 5 pints
Collecting it and sending it by courier myself: 8 pints :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Not delivery charge Tim - you still have to pay for the courier yourself :shock:

i do like the manta, it's unusual and looks a bit more in keeping with a road car. the hs front to me is a bit racy and i just don't like the hsr.

fitting the chevette sidelights instead of the indicator units would take care of that problem.

i doubt it's that unusual for a car to be more aerodynamic in reverse, but at the same time the lift would be pretty horrendous.

Yes, I've always felt the HS spoiler's a bit 70s boy racer!

Although I said HSR I think they're in keeping with, and a lot better with, an HSR kit - same applies for the Black Magic kit, but I like them better without the extra deep skirts.

I have my doubts about how worthwhile any downforce generated by a full Black Magic kit might be....

i suspect bonnet vents and or raising the rear of the bonnet will generate more downforce personally

did you have a bid grim? i couldnt really afford to go above £50 - new i wasnt going to compete at that but it was worth a shot. anything over £50 is an engine to me so i cant justify it unless it's imperative!
