OK finally got round to getting the Melos MOTd and after 2 days of driving remembered why i got her in the first place. However a slight over egsuberance on Morrisons car park has led to a snapped handbrake cable. :( and so to question 1.
Question 1: Melos was built from an Escort Mk1 donor so assume MK1 handbrake cable required. But is a Mk1 and Mk2 cable same?
Question 2: 2nd year of an MOT advisory regards lack of silver in headlights! figured i'd treat the old girl to a new st of angel eye headlights (nice set of iridium angel eyes on ebay for £30) so will standard 7inch mini headligts fit?
Question 3: Don't really fancy another annual cleaning of the weller wheels followed by covering with hammerite so thought i masy treat them to a powder coat! Anyone know of anywhere i may get them done cheap? Have looked online and cheapest i've found is £240 per set of 4. seein as i could get a new set of wheels & tyres for less was hoping for £100 or so. Happy to shot blast them myself. I was given an elecrostatic magic DIY powder coating kit for xmas but haven't tried is yet and don't have an oven (got a baby belling) big enough to cok them in.
