I've nit used eBay for parts but I've heard a lot of horror stories about stuff turning up bearing no resemblance to what was ordered and for every bargain you hear about I see people trying to sell stuff for silly money sometimes.

while i myself hae never had a drama getting the wrong stuff from what is on auction...its all been pretty good like that

but there have been those ppl who think they are going to get rich with some of the prices they start at.

more susprising is what ppl are prepared to pay for items...

I guess there are plenty of places worldwide where ebay is going to offer the only realistic possibility of finding certain parts. Having said that I think ebay has encouraged lots of people to believe that their rubbish is not trash it is in fact a goldmine!

The Twimcan Escort and MK11 Lotus Cortina ones are not the same. They look similar , but one has smaller trumpets on it. I thinks the Escort one has the small ones.

You try finding the brackets and bakerlite bits for these - very difficult. Complete sets in the UK sell for around ?500.
