    MK1 Escort Windscreen pillar

    Hi Tim

    do you know if Magnum have made any outer front windcreen pillars, maybe called the outer door jamb or if they have any plans to make them? From the top of the windsrceen/door aperture down to the top of the scuttle/A pillar. I realise these would have to try and incorporate the rain gutter somehow.


    The new bodyshells on sale at Motorsport Tools must have used something new.

    I've tried contacting Magnum directly but haven't had a reply.

    Cheers
    Rob

    Hello Rob,

    Sincere apologies missed this one. They have just made a complete pillar, with A post and 3/4 of the sill included. Currently being trial fitted and once confirmed good will be put into production.

    Hi Tim
    I'm still watching this with interest.
    I also keep checking their site as well, I don't suppose you do have any further updates by any chance do you.
    Cheers
    Rob

    I see they are now on Magnum's website Tim.
    As of yet no price though.

    Not sure what's going on with the contact form on their site either as I can't seem to submit my enquiry to them about it.

    The email I've tried sending them bounced back too.

    That is uncanny as I literally just asked them, no stock no forecast at the moment. We have manufacturing forecast up to the end of March and they are not available in that time.

    How strange, unless someone is telling porkies then why bother putting them up on their website.

    I suppose it partly boils down to what they call "coming soon-please enquire" which is the quote on their site.

    If they've told you they're not manufacturing them between now and march then hopefully in the next manufacturing batch after that.

    Yes, we are desperate for these as plenty of customers have asked for them. Unfortunately everything is running a bit slow at the moment.

    I managed to get an email through to them and this was the reply.

    Hi. The outer door frame should hopefully be available later in the year. Price around 200 +VAT each.

    Thanks

    I wasn't anticipating quite that much, maybe 150 aside.
