Good spot, Nick!
It's great to see a mark 3 still being used and enjoyed.

Thanks Andrew. Was real happy to spot this mate but have a slight confession. Being a Fordoholic with OCD I could not do nothing so got out my emergency suitcase full of Halford Aerosols and gave it a quick "clean up". Did not hang about but hope the owner appreciated my work... :lol: :lol:

To be fair, I've seen much worse paint touch up jobs!
It's lucky for the owner you had some white paint with you, as I thought your emergency suitcase only contained Halfords Flexible Vinyl Paint aerosols.... :D

Had a white MKIII estate many years ago. Y reg is was. About that sort of condition too. I used it for humping building materials when we built an extension. Only car I've ever taken to the scrappy :o
