    think I’d buy that shelf
  2. Now back to standard height though as I think it drives better!
  3. My mk2 Mexico will be for sale soon
  4. I had a mk2 Escort that use to eat clutch cables on a regular basis, I always carried a spare in the end! Mind you I mastered clutchless gear changes!
  5. Maybe go to the paint shop buy a can of each paint an old panel with both see what you like best make sure it’s out in the daylight as fluorescent lights give a different shade I’ve just painted a mini and it looks almost candy under the fluorescent light but it’s solid red
  6. I think the Daytona is a much richer colour, the signal looks washed out slightly my uncle used to own a mk1 Mexico in Daytona yellow I always wanted one in that colour afterwards
  7. We’ve been through this already! Not even a month ago
  8. Hi and welcome nice looking escort you have there maybe get it driving how you want it and fit panhard rod then maybe get the arches done later but as most have said you need to fill the arches properly Stick with the pinto
  9. Welcome to OSF I’m looking forward to a build thread on this 👍
  10. Brilliant adds My first car was bought for £150 1974 mk1 escort 1600 x flow some weird rally dash and had twin tanks
  11. Look at the bearing very smooth so just wear no tearing or grooves, oil pressure may have dropped when warm but not sufficient to notice if using the RS 5 clock
  12. I don’t lol just try to buy the right bits when they come up for sale, just have to prioritise if poss lol the Anglia needs sills/jacking points welding so I’ll get it stripped as the nights are now getting longer so couple of late nights will get that done Mk2 Mexico is being put up for sale soon and Mk1 RS2000 I’m still buying stuff so maybe next year will tackle the paintwork so only leaves me the cortina to do this summer (and the Rover P5b)
  13. Your probably thinking a red top anyway lol if it arrives it’s got to be fitted really hasn’t it
  14. Just trying to arrange collection, think I have a lotus slant engine on its way fingers crossed
  15. Yes bearings definitely on their last legs
  16. Yes me to 😂 hence my user name lol
  17. My thoughts were to sell the cortina on but been chatting today and think I should restore it, but more rolling resto get the engine bay painted and detail the engine remove the interior as that was fitted back in 1988 as the original interior was stolen, replace it with some roll top recaro’s and get rear seat trimmed to match I have a set of Mexico deep dish steels which would suit it paint the rear panel,bumpers, handles and mirrors satin black a-la ‘S’
  18. I don’t use anything! Not seen any issues on cars I work on day to day and do you do 12000 miles a year? dont bother is my opinion
