    that would be mine then!! my car was the test bed for the new smaller track kit meaning you could use larger rwd offset wheels on the front of you 100e lol. the best kit by far is old ford autos, its not the cheapest but after 3 years of almost every day driving it still works lovely, handles well and still looks the tits in my opinon, cheers tony

    Youll get different answers from different people because it's been done so many different ways. There have been some great homebrew conversions, but this takes time and a hell of a lot of skill. If you can scrape the money together it has to be the new narrow track Old Ford Auto's kit as above.

    Hi there,
    Did you use those top mounts to adjust the camber? I've been trying to find something similar from ebay and the web to be able to buy for my 100E project and can't find any anywhere! Could you please tell me where you bought them from?

    Thanks a million in advance,
    Mario Borg - Malta

    Hello Mario, I think the mounts in the pic ( the gold ones) are from Old Ford Autos. They have a web site Old Ford Autos, modifications, classic spares, servicing, reproduction panels, conversion kits, based in Berkshire / Hampshire but no pics of the mounts. Worth giving them a shout.
    Martin.
