Hi All,

Just a quick hello. I joined this site before i actually found the UK site. i must admit it's really useful for difficult to get hold of information.
Will chat more, hopefully when i get the hang of all this!

Cheers for now,

Baz. :confused: :feedback: :ty:

I like the front of your van, the "Phantom" look.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Reference the grille, i have no information on the manufacturer of this item. i have not seen this on any Astro or Safari on either this site or the UK site. The van however is a Japanese import, so it may have been fitted in Japan. If anyone does have any information on my Explorer, it would be greatfully received. :confused: :layrubber:

Regards,

Baz and Sand :ty:

Yeah, i see your point. But i do come originally from Brentwood, Essex UK, which is UK Ford country over here. I must admit though that V6 sounds nearly as good as a V8 and with fuel prices over here at £1.32 a litre i think that's as close to a V8 as i'll ever get.

Cheers,

Baz.. :chevy:
