For those looking to buy an F or TF

There are often people who ask what they should look for when looking to purchase or view an F or TF. It's very easy to view a car and miss things, so a checklist will help to ensure that you cover everything.

I've put together a general F and TF check list, which I hope some might find useful (see attachment below, at bottom of posting). I used something similar when I purchased Misty.


Mine is not a definitive list, but covers the majority of things to look out for. Much of it applies to all cars, but some is also very F/TF specific.

If anyone would like the original file, send me a PM with an email address and I'll send it to you

There are also some helpful websites which have been posted here before, I've listed some below:

Sticky ?

Nice and easy to use mike.
should have had this list before I bought mine in feb.
However, guess I was lucky as wouldnt have dreamed checking for HGF etc.
I'm sure many will find this useful if they read the forums before buying an "F" or "TF".
Would be good as a "Sticky" at the top of the forum me thinks mate
