Interested to see how you get on with it, did that come in via Barnaby Duncan? I've had no dealings but he had quite a few for sale last month.

Thanks Guys
No the Sniper came from CJ Pony Nevada its was about the only place that would ship to UK :(
I am not sure if I am a fan on Extreme Retro Mod where there slice the body off a 75 and drop it on a 2015 frame but it will to all purposes look original it will kind of just be what ford may of done had it come into the EFI age ;)
It will probably look more original as the engine is getting the valve covers and airbox changed for original Items so unless you took off the airbox for a peek you non the wiser :roll:

Hear hear. Plus the fonts have settled down nicely so it's not like a trip to PRIDE every time I open a thread. :mrgreen:

Slight update
I have actually tracked down the exact right colour for my interior which is Ford Interior Medium Metallic Blue and ordered some in the states that's being shipped over by the guy who shipped my car.
He fills a container each month they set sail June 1st to be here by mid July.
Nobody does the colour dye in the UK and nobody will ship it to UK so my only choice was ship to him in Torrance CA and he ships to me
Its about £100 all in for 5 cans of interior dye plus a genuine fuel pump block off plate and gasket ive thrown in as well.

I have been told the match aint exact but its near enough but as long as I dye everything to match the average Joe will never know ;)

Everything even Carpet!
Plan on just going over the kick panels on the bottoms of my doors too

you can even paint it on metal parts but need something extra to get it to take
