Hullo

Just wondering if you can still buy the chrome strip for the E series?
Rang Ford and they just said straight out it was obsolite :(

Also can you get those little bottles of touch up paint? (in my case polanisan Green) ?

Thanks

Yeh, there was someone selling lengths of it for a while but I cant see any on there :(

Apparently you can get it from autobahn but closest one is 160K away :shock:

umm, 5mm wide is way to narrow for an ED. Need to be more like 12 or 15mm.

I have seen one guy actually stick the mould over the top of the mould on the door trims. It looked good, just protruded a couple of mil.
