  1. Ray

    Front Strut insert replacement

    perhaps im just unlucky, every mk1 one ive taken apart, you need to destroy the collar nut to get it undone, only to find they aren't the insert type and you cant get the guts out either for whatever reason, and you end up smothered in oil lol

    1300E resto number 2

    new window trim clips fitted, for those that don't know, this usually involves making a new or modifying the pop riveter head to fit the clips, an air pop riveter is recommended, as hand ones slide as it breaks and paint damage occurs, no matter how much you seem to mask the surrounding area

    1300E resto number 2

    ford letters on, as are the hockey sticks and boot lid trim, rear bumper and number plate had a little accident with the script badge tho, so another has been ordered, the clip fell thru the hole pushing it on, then the thing wouldn't come off, and snapped
  12. wanted, either a matching pair of genuine ford NOS rear light lenses for a mk1 escort, or a NOS pair of rear lights, again must have matching lenses, and in either instance the lenses un damaged, ie no scratches also after a genuine ford NOS front dog bone grill for oblong/rectangular headlights and be the painted black variety

    Remains of the Scrappage Scheme 2018

    the petition was a waste of time, if you signed it you should have got an e mail explaining the outcome, which basically was that the government backed the scrapping of the old cars whatever the age
  14. type into e bay, mk1 escort dash top and you will find the covers
