    Escort mk1 wings going into production????

    I recently emailed a local Hadrian stockist who had a stand at Beaulieu autojumble a list of panels I wanted them to quote on for the van. I thought I would add front wings to the list just to see what answer I got, this is what they said:

    'the Front wings will be going into production, but has yet a date as not been set'

    Is this right, has anyone else heard it ?? Just wondering, can only be a good thing if they are.

    Cheers
    Ben

    I'm sure they will, but that date will probably not be this decade, possibly not the next.

    think dave might be right,

    this email is from hadrian panels>

    Thank you for your enquiry, we have been trying to obtain the tooling
    for these for quite a while but as yet have not been able to complete
    all modifications needed. For this reason we are unable to say when or
    if they will be available again.

    Regards

    When I tied up Classic and Rally Spares in 2006, Hadrian were saying that they would be making more Mk1 wings but it never seems to happen.

    With regards to new Mk1 Mexico wings, there'll be plenty available shortly at reasonable prices.......

    Re: Escort mk1 wings going into production????

    i seemed to be the only one who had done anything with these wings...i got the ball rolling with mk1 RS wings but had not got great success....in saying that by no means is that the end of the line for me on them .....until somebody shows me some or releases wings it will be all talk...talk is cheap so they say.....we will see next year if wings will be produced or not and as the worlds economy is shagged i doubt many people have the cash to pump into producing wings....i could be wrong

    Read an artical in this months retro ford mag, the guy dropped a hint that he will be making MK1 wings. sent him an email about 2 weeks ago but still has not answered. so it could be true or not or maybe he just doesnt answer emails.

    Hadrians used to make them many years ago didn't they?
    I'm certain thats where I bought a pair from once back in the early 90's for about 80 still got em, fit really well apart from the very top 2" of the vertical where it meets the door( i just opened it up, trimmed it and folded it back over again). still got the part number on I think(might look one day)

    a lot has been said of the cost of creating new press/die parts but since the chinese will hand carve you a solid marble house, hewn by hand from the ground for just 10.50 a go, i think its just time before someone joins the dots ...

    This was posted over 3 months ago. So will the ever be available.

    Just a thought, If I was about to release these on the market, wouldn't you be getting pre orders and advertising like hell?
