    Aussie suppliers

    Hi guys.

    I'v had issues in the past trying to get parts and pieces for the small english ford across the ocean until I stumbled across a few local supplies of the good stuff. Post your favourite Aussie escort/small ford supplier here so we can all share the love.

    Ill start with SMCKA Performance. Always happy to put up with my endless questions before buying even the smallest part to try and fit to my cortina.

    Sadly, Smcka Performance have decided to shut up shop - as announced on their facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/pages/Smcka...62256933791489 as of 17Nov14:

    Been very quiet of late.

    I have made the reluctant decision to sell or close the business down. Rather than it being no good it is actually too busy and I have no life to do anything including working on my own cars.

    If anyone wants a great little business then give me a call.
    There is not much stock left and what is there is all we will have. The website is showing all stock left. If it's not there its not in stock.

    Thanks to all of you who have supported me over the past 5 years. I have enjoyed it but reality is I cannot hold 2 jobs and my day job pays better than this one.

    Yesterford seem Good from what I've heard.

    I'm yet to try them but my mate had all his window rubbers from there and had no reported problems

    Not technically Oz, I know, but these guys in New Zealand were awesome to deal with.

    Postage for a floor panel was very reasonable and only took 3 or 4 days to arrive
