  3. Mk 1 project

    So been having a few days on the escort recently.. repairs to the scuttle ends and bulk head as well as sorting seat bars,strut brace, gearstick gator fitment, moving handbrake back and then managed to fit front panels, bonnet doors and wings. Good to have it starting to look like a car again. Was a relief to see the doors shut easily and all the lines nice and straight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    As much as I like the Sebring red I must admit I think Vista Orange is a better colour.. so may go that way Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So yesterday was spent measuring and measuring and measuring.. everything was completely square to within 0.5 mm... bit anal I know but was happy with that before everything was welded. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I wish the car was at my house but unfortunately it's at my workshop 30 miles away otherwise I think I would like to do a little every day. The overall plan is to have it just how I always wanted an escort. It's going to be a purely fun weekend car. Stripped out track day looking car with a tuned pinto on 45s wide and low and keeping orange. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
