    Wilkos mk2 1.6 Ghia

    After a lot of talking with the body shop we have decided it works out cheaper to replace the whole floor pan so the floor will be solid. Also so a few questions can anyone supply any links to a ancillary hose kit for a 1600 xflow need to replace all the water/heater pipes and can’t find anything. also as it’s got the tan interior (which I’m keeping) after 40 years it’s not as clean as it could be. What is the best way of cleaning the door cards as I’m guessing they are vinyl of some sorts

    It’s at a place near Dereham, hoping to have it done by March but being realistic possibly August. I’m now working full time again so once the welding and paint is done I will have less spare time to rebuild it. But we shall see one thing I don’t want is it to be rushed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New type metal pressed number plates

    I’m a Vw person (own 3 of them as well as my escort) and I agree the whole German look plate is pointless unless you enjoy getting pulled. However I do have pressed plates on all my cars as in my opinion they look fresher Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mk2 escort 4 door 1600 sport ?

    Would be nice to see a genuine 4 door sport. But apart from few bits of trim isn’t that what the 1600 Ghia is. Same engine and box same chassis same brakes. Please correct me if I’m wrong but I always thought the Ghia was a sport with extra doors Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for that I was pretty sure about the grill because of what you said about the boot, however I never knew about the steering wheel. I just presumed all mk2s had the same wheel apart from the Mexico’s and rs200s, didn’t realise they ditched the escort bit Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
