  2. the old van shell is really starting to come together now.. heres the latest few progress pics..... the wings and doors fitted up and checked for gaps etc,.....looking like all will work out fine with a bit of fettling... theres a bit of a wait for some more of the required panels to arrive due to good old covid....rear corners etc from expressed panels... so in the meantime, damien is concentrating on a few other repairs that need doing, like the upper bulkhead under the heater bubble...

  3. Yes I agree, Very well done admin. It often goes forgotten how much time and work the admin put in to these sites. Give yourself a pat on the back.

  5. Hit it with the lowering stick and I'd have it, but usually convertibles like that have a roof that looks like a badly fit tarp. I've sold my Mk1 Golf Cabriolet because SWMBO doesn't like her hair messed up. It didn't affect me as I'm a pork pie wearing slaphead, but the wingeing wore me down.

  6. So is that what the E will stand for in your escorts from 2030 .... Electric ! . Ford was way ahead of it thinking In the 1970’s and theres us all thinking the E stood for executive !!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  7. Hi all. I was just doing a search for Mk1 escort forums and came across this. I recently purchased a 1975 1100 escort which is a Mexico replica. I plan to do some restoration and mods so hoping you guys can point me in the right directions! I'm based in Northern Ireland.

  13. Brilliant. I too bought a 1.6SR in 88 and loved it. The last of the decant Astra's. Mine finished it's 4 year life in my ownership with a 2.0 16v red top with twin 48 Weber's. Went well.

  14. So this thread has been running for 9 years and I have just realised haven't ever posted my own pic in it. Age 19, 1989 with the first non banger I ever owned. A properly nice 1.6SR mk1 Astra I bought in 1988 when it was 5 years old. Loved that car.

  16. Thanks! I was originally planning to put slightly bigger wheels and lower it but now happy with the factory look. Given the condition and mileage, I agree that its wiser to leave it as it is. Mirror covers done as well Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

  17. By then you might be buying a Written off Tesla for the drivetrain and fit it to your rotbag of a mk1 .... if its a Mexico you might be able to call it a Mexla !! ... lol . πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  29. Unfortunately I'm having to sell my Capri because I've downsized my workshop. I had purchased this in December 2019 and driven it back home,but the radiator had popped. I've installed a non-automatic radiator with a separate oil cooler. heater blower doesn't work,but trickles through. Passenger window needs bonding to the lifting mechanism. I would be surprised it will pass the next MOT which is due in January the 23rd,as there is rot issues on the inner wing and around the front of the rear arch near the leaf springs. I have video footage of the underside and and external sierra3dr@hotmail.c

  41. That's was a great find. It's looking real well now. If you are modifying it, dont do anything permanent I reckon as the original car will be worth more eventually. Sent from my SM-A202F using Tapatalk
