Buying Spare Parts

I am very aware that the car is actually quite old.  Although it was bought in 2005, the engine dates back 1995-8 and the majority of the parts came from the Ford Sierra and Ford Escort of a similar period, and these are becoming rarer and rarer, even in breakers yards.

So I have a permanent Browser Page open on E-Bay with a filter of 'kit car' to see what comes up.   And if I see something unique at a reasonable (cheap!) price I will bid on it.

So far I have bought a spare Engine Control Unit (ECU)


A spare set of Column Switches

A set of Reversing Lights (£3.20!!)

And a pair of Bonnet Catches


More to come !!
