    So on that then, you can decide on mk1 or to by the tre taper. Good point forgot about that! .....it’s an age thing...lol I was unaware of the different bolt pattern, your meaning on the steering arm .yes?

    Not 100% but think all mk1s have removable arms along with the Capri. So off the mk2 range.

    Best aftermarket panels.

    If there from Higgins, they’ll be Chinese shite that don’t fit. Welcome to the forum 👍

    wheres col?

    Nah, got one leaking oil though. NOT a manufacturing error I might add. A Honda Civic type R driver got his ambitions mixed up with his capabilities at Cadwell and destroyed the Armco barrier thus chucking the concrete on the track, one bit went through my sump!

    Raising the Insurance Value of my Escort

    I wouldn’t let my wife drive any of mine, she is a disaster on wheels! She puts radio 4 on and that’s it, suffers with tunnel vision. No idea what the car is doing or telling her, not a bloody clue!!! How she got a license I don’t know. As for parking ...well.....if there was a parking spot in between two cars...the tax would run out before she got the car in🤔 I can only say this cos she don’t know the password on my I pad.....ha ha

    wheres col?

    I’m still here, just up to my neck in building at the moment. Not car building but house renovations. Not that we needed most of them, but got to keep her indoors happy. My proposed garage extensions are on hold at the moment due to planning, without these I ain’t got no space to do anything really. The escort was booked in for paint end of March but that’s been cancelled. So that’s buried at the back of the garage, just accumulating parts as I see them, keeping under the radar of the wife.....lol Its nice to know I’ve been missed or is it the case you ain’t got no one to pick on😜...lol

    Going from 80ish bhp to 165ish bhp.

    Your idea on mappable ign would be a good idea and throttle position sensor would help with town driving on the 244 cam as it’s a bit lairy for town use. Think the Rev band is 3 k up. There’s plenty of good quality alloy rads about followed up with a good fan in front of it, thermostatically controlled.For the battery take note of the start amps on the battery spec more than anything to keep it whizzing over.

    I like the idea, what did you use for B posts. Did you have locate 2 door posts or graft the 4 door ones?

    Hello from NZ

    Welcome to OSF, nice car and setting. Was looking at the pic and thought something missing to finish the back end off. The trims off the 1600E, takes away the bland look and to me finishes it off.

    1300 OR 1600 Gearbox?

    There no problem getting the flywheel lightened, if your thinking of going to a 5 speed in the future if the prop is ok I’d leave it. After fitting a 5 speed you’ll need a shorter prop so wait till then to replace, why spend twice.
