    Bolt size - front seats into crossmember

    So actually for anyone else with the same issue as I had - the rear bolts on mine were M8 but the front were half inch 'UNC' and as I found - a little more difficult to get hold of! Thanks all
  4. Hi all I've just started putting my 1980 RS2000 back together but I'm missing a centre console. I bought one of those fibreglass replicas but to be honest I just don't like it. I do want to put a stereo in the car and I have the custom with clock pod in the dash so don't need that. Can you guys and girls tell me of any good options you know of? I saw a great home made one that someone on a forum had made and I'd be happy to pay someone to make one up for me - I guess I could make one from some plans - but in not that that handy with jigsaws and MDF Can anyone help??

    Bolt size - front seats into crossmember

    Ah sorry. 1980 MK 2 escort RS2000!!
  7. Hi all I've fitted sound deadening panels, and new carpets with nice underlay. Problem is I now need longer bolts to secure my seats. So What I need to know is the size of the original bolts to allow me to source some longer ones of the same thread width. Can anyone help me??? Picture below of the originals - I use an 11mm socket to do them up and undo them if that helps anyone

    Fitting After-market Recaro's into Escort Mk2

    Don't the runners for the standard seats bolt to the sides? My adaption bars just bolt to the underneath of the Recaros I have
  11. Hi there I have some recaros that i want to put into my RS2000 (Mk2). I have adaption bars to fit to the bottom of the recaro's (they mount to the bottom of the seats) but I can't seem to find any subframes anywhere that I can bold to the adaption bars and then to the car I need the seats of move back and forth and I conscious of the cross member which is where the original seats bolt to at the front.... I am sure loads of people must have overcome this challenge but can't find any threads with the answer. Can anyone help? Thanks David

    James - thanks again. You are right. I am making assumptions. Only just got the car. What else might it be? D

    Leaky doors

    James. Thanks. So my RS has no chrome strips but I think I understand now. I think it's fair to say mine is suffering from everything you guys have highlighted here. Thanks again!
