  1. yes please, car has been resprayed with the old ones removed, leaving the screw placements visible, was thinking that there must be some one out there who could make them, but expect it will be astronomical cost
  2. Does anyone know if you can get these anywhere still? had a full respray and the old ones were removed, I need something to go over where the old ones were situated, struggling online. They run from bottom of wheel arch to the other wheel arch right at the bottom. Is there anything similar that can be cut or used instead, it must look good.
  3. does anyone know if you can get these new anywhere? or does anyone have any for sale?

  5. does anyone have a link to anywhere selling the little bulbs 12v that are inside these switches?

    Electric aerial wiring/fuse?

    I cut the constant live wire alongside the passenger footwell and wired it direct to the stereo constant live, all works now, there must be a short behind the dash somewhere and I'm not taking all that out just to look for it! :>)
  7. I have 1989 Escort Xr3i Cabriolet Took out electric aerial in boot that was working fine, to replace tip of aerial as it had broken off. On refitting I am receiving no power in the constant live (red) wire, have tested the aerial with external power works fine so not a problem with the aerial. The ignition wire was making the relay in the aerial click but that has now stopped aswell. Have checked all fuses in the fuse box, all seem fine, 2 amp fuse behind stereo is ok, aerial works if you wire it direct from boot to the stereo with different wires. Before I just fit new wires from the stereo to the boot along the sills, does anyone know if this is a hidden fuse somewhere or is it likely the wires have shorted(maybe the live touched the shell on removal - my own stupid fault always disconnect battery first), also what is the route of the wires do they go under the sills and into the dash on passenger side?
