Hi Guys,

I'm Dave, 47 & a semi retired Auto Transmission Specialist. Not been around forums for a while due to selling up and relocating to NW Scotland, but gonna be finishing me new workshop after easter and then get back into some auto gearboxes and start a new Ford project.
Like the forum, what I've seen so far,

Regards Dave

 Yeah we been chatting.  He was talkin to a mate of mine on here a year or so ago and I was inputting some advice via the other member.  Have been out of the scene a while, due to re - locating to Scottish Highlands, but new workshop going up soon, then new car project will be started.

Last one I built was a 4wd 24v Manual Saffire Cossie rep sold it a while back cos of move.  Regret it now  Just in case anyone here has seen it it was Magenta Red J 804 KBD.

Not sure what next, but 24v BOB 4wd, poss tippy & auto 6 spd & prob either RS Escort or RS Focus, see what comes up cheap lol  

Cheers Dave

Hi Tony,

Will let ya know once workshop is finnished, that'll be the real interesting bit as well as the water based toys Malt whisky Angus Steaks and Local Seafood  

Check out ebay item 180339956743, would be ideal for me but Mel wont let me spend no more money till the workshop is finished lol

Cheers, Dave

I've been looking at a few RS Replica Focuses, seems complete ones can be had for not a lot of money compared to RS Escorts  
But like I said the deal is finish the building first then I can spend some dosh... Don't fancy another divorce lol
