  1. 🤪🤢, I have taken a photo of the vin after cleaning it up a bit, im sure that if i put the green interior on ebay i would get 1 million pounds🤪🤪
  2. Thanks, that's interesting, I will have a closer look, I was presuming it was venitian red, maybe its not, I am missing the other plate. I found these two photos online from the same place i brought the escort, hoping that the car was venitian red, they are from another car, do you think mine would be red?
  3. Green was not the original colour, it was venetian red, hence going back to being red🙂
  4. Bit of a update, have not had as much time as I would of liked to get this done, really busy at work over lock down, even thought of selling the other escort Mexico. This is not to be a show car, but I just want it solid and tidy for my wife to hoon around in, painted underneath to stop rust, will have to touch up a bit of this when I weld a bit from the top.
  5. Yep not a perfect panel, but pretty much all that is available, had to grind down my spot welder tips to fit in the channel
  6. I'm not really one for originality to the extreme, an escort is always meant to go sideways sometimes, no good looking at it and not having a good ride, a bit like a female😉
  7. Its pretty bad, but very do-able, I will have a better look when I can get it in the garage and strip it down, will update this thread as I go with photos, I like it as its mostly complete, I'm just happy to finally have a Mexico mk2 ☺️
  8. Yep think the 1600 needs to be running too, its white and rust colour, I do like white, colour will be a long way off lol😉 A few pics from the eBay listing and my journey back. This has got to wait its turn, I have to finish the 1600 sport first🙃
  9. I have some of the listing from ebay, I'll find them out😉
  10. I am currently restoring a 1600 sport in another thread, however, after a lot of encouragement from my other half I have brought another project, a MK2 Mexico, although this will have to wait its turn as I want to finish the sport first that is on the rollover, I have wanted a Mex since I was about 9 after seeing an yellow one do burnouts, they don't come up for sale much, especially now. A few questions to ask if you don't mind, would it matter if I changed the colour? Also I have the original 1600 engine which will need a sort out, I have a good 2.0 which I could use, is this the done t
  11. I loved my Murex welder, done me proud for around ten years, built to last.
  12. I think you are right about the axle. Found a few photos of it removed. I phoned the DVLA who told me that I need to MOT the car to apply for a V5, also the company I brought it from said they will help me register it, I was hoping this would be easy to do.
  13. I had a South African VW Spitscreen which I restored, it gave me alot of good times, I hope this Escort will too😉
  14. The floors have been bodged quite a bit, covered in textured gunk to hide sins, will be cutting them about to make solid. I like that Mexico you have😎😎😎, my plans are to run a pinto with a 5 speed and use it as a fun car, it was originally venetian red so I am painting it as it was.
  15. Could be interested later when I have done more to the shell, I have brought filler hole piece I think? It was hard to find one for sale.
