    RSJay a £11 one off fleabay, GOODYEAR, has a good deep slot for the pinch weld on sill and I stuck two pieces of firm rubber on the saddle part to protect paint in case..



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Bill, I simply used a hacksaw blade, not one of those blue flimsy  ones that are like 14 inches long, 1 cm by 1mm, I had a kind of thick one, normal length but about 1 inch by about 2mm thick, just used the blade not in the hacksaw frame, just bare blade in the hand(s)
