  1. I put a full set of seats from a Sapphire Cosworth in my MK1 Escort. Fronts I used sierra runners and made up some brackets to make them sit ok. Rears I bolted the backs to the metal behind the seats and base was just wedges in and screwed in to hold
  2. Thanks to people posting the pictures. I honestly haven't stopped laughing at some of them
  3. In the end I bought the exhaust I was looking at, at that money I thought it was worth a try. The section to go over the axle was fine, everything fitted without any cutting or modifying. I have one long section spare, 4 angle sections spare and 3 joint sections spare. I just need to raise the rear silencer up (bracket ordered) and cut the length back as it sticks out a little to far, otherwise really pleased with it, and the new stainless bumper was a perfect fit too. My car isn't a show car but overall I am happy with how it is slowly coming along as a presentable classic
  4. Bumpers arrived today. Fittied very well, all holes in correct places, very please indeed
  5. Thanks for the info. Ive already ordered the bumpers so hopefully I will have more success. Southend is a bit far for me otherwise
  6. Unfortunately it looks better from a distance, close up it could ideally have a respray just to tidy it up, not rotten or falling apart, its a solid car overall. I would like to have it resprayed but can't find anyone local who is interested, just bodyshops that want insurance jobs in and straight out
  7. Thanks to everyone for the replies. Stainless Steel bumpers - Thankyou for the advice about them, I will be ordering some stainless steel ones as they look great as my car sits in a car port type garage too. Exhaust - Still unsure but thinking of trying the kit. I just need to get under the car and measure the size of exhaust required, 2" seems to sound familiar for some reason
  8. This is my little MK1 Escort. (Mexico tribute) Originally it was a 1300 Super, but that engine died so a 1670 X-Flow was installed. The car is not a show car and has a few bits to do so not looking to spend thousands tbh. The exhaust is starting to give up the ghost so I was looking at this system. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hornet-Universal-Exhaust-Kit-2-Bore-and-3-Stainless-Steel-Tailpipe/121503941659?hash=item1c4a33041b:g:XbMAAOSw0vBUfDvv Ive not measured it yet but is a standard Escort system a 2"bore? Would this universal kit fit ok? It looks like it could be made to fit with basic modifications. I don't want to spend a fortune as the car is only used sunny days/weekends etc. The chrome bumpers need re-chroming but I was looking at changing to stainless steel ones, are these worth changing to?
  9. Thanks for the comments everyone. Great to see all the cars on here
  10. Thanks mate. I have 2 Cossies that are hidden away, Escort is just fun Thank you Thanks also
  11. Many thanks. She did get a Range Rover Sport just before tho lol
  12. Hi All, Although I have been registered on here for a while I haven't really posted much lately. My MK1 Escort was bought for me by my wife as a wedding present as a surprise. A mate had bought it on her behalf and added the Mexico graphics to add a bit of colour to it. So now Ive owned it for 10 years so decided it needed a bit of attention. So recently I added a few extras: 4 spotlights, as I only wanted the look I bought them from Halfords and sprayed them white to match the car. Resprayed whole grill silver to neaten up. Front chin spoiler just to tidy the front up. Replica Sprinalex style steering wheel. JBW RS4 wheels and tyres. Sapphire Cosworth leather Recaro front seats and leather rears. Future plans are to remove Mexico graphics and add RS2000 graphics. Hope you all like even though its not anywhere near some of the amazing cars on here.
