  6. Right where do i start? I recieved a propshaft from yukspeed before christmas but it didn't fit as it was tooo long, so i waited to the new year and order my custom prop from baileys. Receieved the prop and it fits lovely, fitted the rest of the exhaust. managed to get the engine running by removing the spark plugs a turning it over for a bit ( to losen the engine up) then put the sparkers back in, tweeked the fuel pressure, and applied the choke and she RUN'S Bad news is that my clutch wouldn't engage as the release bearing was keeping the clutch open at all times. so yesterday

  9. Thanks for the comments Hi steve how you doin? I got mine from escort tec for a bargain price of £10! I think its a mexico one but not sure, it was well battered when i got it. Fixed it with fiberglass filler but it fits quite snug which was a good thing. Heres a pic how i got it: sorted out the garage today and i'd though i'd take a couple of pics while it was out: Should look completely different with the gunmetal superlites on there (when i can find the money to buy them). I need to get the suspension set up and tracking done as its ajust

  12. A bit of an update for ya'll! Alot has changed! the bodyshop finaly finished the outside and the outside looks great apart from very minor blemishes but they can be sorted at a later date. When i got it back the engine bay looked w**k!! so i resprayed it again myself at home with my compressor. sanded the laquer back gave it another good coat of green and some 2pac laquer. Heres a pic after i sprayed it again: I was quite pleased how it came out as i done it outside. Next was to paint the rear axle and fit the new rear suspension. But i broke the O/S shackle mount for the dam
  13. Thanks for the comments I have been a bit slack getting on the computer, I'm not in for long enough to get chance to update my project.
