  1. Cheers for the reply's. My escort is blue but I have no idea which blue it is! Brilliant thanks for that @Vista ill get investigating
  2. Hi, Has anyone got a list of colour codes for the early mk1 up to 1970? I'm after a blue and I believe there is a few. Also need the character for the vin plate (old style) if anyone can help. Cheers.
  3. Some titanium scrap machined up at work to make some nice rose joint bolts for the crossmember ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  4. Looking forward to the paint! Just been catching up on your thread! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  5. ๐Ÿ˜‚ the welds are fine, just donโ€™t look pretty, and like I said before I posted the pics that they need grinding back and finishing, only reason theyโ€™ve been painted is to prevent further rust. But thanks for your concern! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  6. It feels like I've hardly done anything though so i feel like its not worth posting! Just a few dodgy welds and alot of grinding ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‚
  7. Done a few bits, just trying to get the thing rolling to make it easier to work on as I havenโ€™t the room for a rollover jig. Welds need grinding back and neatening up. Can get the front Suspension bolted up as soon as my track rod ends turn up.
  8. I can't work out if this is the sill or floor, but both have repair panels that are cheap enough you can cut and weld on ๐Ÿ‘
  9. Just about got the hang of it now, nothing pretty but it does the job! Its easy enough to pick up, i'm using CO2 pub gas but you should really be using a CO2 and Argon mix for welding! Its literally just trial and error, just get abit of metal and have a go. If you blow a hole in it just change the setting and patch it back up!
  10. After a place where you can buy some 13" wheels barrels if anyone knows of one? I want to machine my own wheels and having both the barrels would make it so much easier! Cheers
  11. Standard, Any condition considered. Thanks
  12. I can fine tune the panel gap with a large hammer! No point until i have the wings mocked up so i can even it out
  13. After I fell out with the car last weekend and launched the angle grinder across the garage, I tidied up the mess, got a new blade for the angle grinder and had another re-think. I machined another set of hinges because Iโ€™d butchered the previous ones and got the door on and in the right place now finally! Almost got the hang of this! Almost... ๐Ÿ˜‚
  14. Engine bay is so tidy, love it ๐Ÿ‘
  15. Trip up to Scotland ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ last week to get some lovely parts from @davey ! Top bloke ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Also re did some welding on my drivers door hinges, they were too low, now Iโ€™ve re done them and somehow theyโ€™re now too high, even had the door resting in place for reference! So this weekend i WILL sort the hinges once and for all! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
  16. What do you mean unfortunately! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Yes youโ€™re helping me out with parts and old school wisdom! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Thanks, yes when I started my welder wasnโ€™t up high enough! Think Iโ€™ve sussed it now ๐Ÿค” Cheers, yes a bit pushed for space! ๐Ÿคฃ
  18. Ah ok, ive just been using it in my phones internet browser anyway which is fine!
  19. Probably thousands of posts about this.. but i can't see where to create a signature when i click edit on my profile. Can anyone help? ๐Ÿ˜‡
  20. Did you manage to get it working? I also cant post using tapatalk and have to do it on my work computer ๐Ÿ˜…
  21. That's sweet, loads better looking that the originals. Can you remember the company you got it from?
