I have a new pair of rear "D" pillars (is that what you call them?) from Ralph, and a pair of NOS tail lights waiting to be fitted :)
well that's odd :lol: as my v8 has a custom rear I also have a pair of pillars and tail lights just in case I get the urge to change it or maybe fit a pair with xa falcon lights already in :idea: :idea:


I can box it all up and send to you if you like? :lol: Out of curiosity, what lights are fitted in yours at the moment?
if you look at the rear of it its a fabricated [ slot /mould] with a glass panel and behind the glass are mk 1 Granada lights set up

Wow , that is what I call a "Custom" Very 70's look! :D How long you owned it? Sounds like it is missing a cylinder or two in that clip. Got any pics in the original colour, looks like dark blue maybe?

Moving along, I removed the steering box and original mounting plate. Mk3 mounting plate bolted in to position (still needs welding) with Mk3 PS box fitted.
