how'd you end up getting it off?


well, i was hoping no one would ask that... you know those bottom brackets. well the bracket is mounted on the bottom of the bar and the other end of the bracket is mounted onto the two big brackets on the bar and on the chasis, not relising this, i undid it off the bar, not off the chasis! :oops: wasn't until i was pulling and pulling this morning witing for something to snap and when i pulled it out saw were it was still joined and then felt very stupid!

i dunno why these pictures are coming out so dark (probably need to crank up the brightness on your monitor or something to see the curves in it and that), they don't do it any justice, but here's the skirt against the rear bar... basically it makes the rear bar come down lower, also reeally really beefs it out around the bottom, and adds the flare up bits to teh wheel arch like the rest of the tickford kit has...
anyways i was gunna paint it tomorrow, but working now, so maybe firday...

Fronts been fitted with a genuine Ford/Tickford EF skirt, side skirts are EL aftermarket copies custom made to fit the wagon length. Busy making my own sesquential scoop for the bonnet.

Is it custom made or is it from a shop.
