  1. Back from paintless dent removal and detailing 😀 Nice deep shine considering the age. Next on the list is replacing electric antenna and repaint mirror covers.
  2. Thanks man, I won't . I had this car for 10 years now and always manages to make smile despite its tiny power and simplicity! Below is a video of the engine. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. By way of an update after 6 years 😀 I still own this one. Last year I managed to find an uber rare set of twin weber 36 DCNF's with inlet manifold as fitted to Series X Fiestas. I also recently fitted a 4-2-1 stainless steel manifold. Currently in the process of re-doing the interior to factory spec. I already fitted all round genuine seatbelts, uncut shelf etc. and martrim should be able to supply the original GL 'chelsea' fabric. Here are some recent pics, hope you like
  4. Some progress on the shell...passenger rear quarter back on. Rear panel welding/alignment will be next Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. Wheels on! Next on the list are paintless dent removal, detailing (clay bar, 2 stage polish and wax), fix radio/electric aerial ...more work than I expected Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  6. Found a set of refurbished pepperpots with new tyres for a really good price today so I snapped them! Hoping for that factory fresh look once they're on
  7. Original tyres had to go and with a set of compomotive turbos lying in the garage waiting for my escort mk2 project wrapped in new tyres, it was rude not to! 13 inch are a bit small on her but with some lowering and grey or gold centres I think they can look ace. What do you think?[emoji848] Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Front end all fitted and lined up Started on the rear-end now which is hopefully the last major surgery - rear wing out to replace outer tub and spare wheel well. Put wing back together and align with door, fit rear panel skin and boot lid. Still a way to go but on a positive note, I got to enjoy the latest addition on her first show
  9. Ans it’s finally on the road…not much done to it other than a good clean and a power wash to the engine bay. Needs a good polish, a couple of small dents pulled out and some other minor details. Went for a long night drive yesterday…pulls well and doesn’t handle too bad either considering she’s still wearing the original uniroyal rallye’s 😁 Really tempted to put some 15 inch BBS replicas (JBW) and lower it a bit…or else just put the original steels and trims for a factory look
  10. Got it back from the mechanic today 😁 Still need to go through the process of classic car certification before I get the plates. Managed to take it for a short drive (on a private road) though and ran like a dream 😉 Here's a short video:
  11. Some photos on its journey to the mechanic... Fitted a new battery and poured some fuel in the tank and started up without much hassle Any attempts to drive it failed though and a new clutch seems to be the only solution. I was also concerned about the 34 year old timing belt 😆 which will get replaced along with new oil/fluids/filters etc.
  12. So I came across this Sierra listed as a 1 owner with 14,000km. I wasn't really looking to add another car to the collection but I was too curious to see it and hear its story, which goes something like this... It's 1985 and this gentleman having recently been to the UK was fascinated by the Sierra's futuristic design. So back in Malta, he went to the local Ford dealer and ordered a Sierra. Not one of the basic versions, but a 2.0 Ghia finished in diamond white. He also wanted to have xr4i wheels but those would have costed him an extra 1k so he fitted a set of mille miglia instead which
  13. Some more progress made to the shell...at least it looks more like a car now [emoji3] Front inner wing was replaced, original strut turret welded using original spot weld locations, primed and sealed. New front panel welded into place as well. The new floor pans, inner and outer A-post and sills and fabricated lower bulkead have been finished off as well. Also managed to get some NOS door skins. I don't know if they're genuine Ford but have nice bold swage lines and measured up nicely. Next step is the the passenger rear wing. Had a shunt in the past and the inner arch was not
  14. Hi all I was wondering if there's anyone who supplies escort mk2 door skins other than Magnum? Whilst their body panels are usually top notch, I've been having issues with the door skins. Magnum gets these from Klokkerholm and the swage lines don't seem to line up properly. I 've been told they're working on new tooling but wasn't given a definitive date :/
  15. Just realised the last time I updated the thread was more than a year ago...and unfortunately the escort is still a long way to go. Anyways, here is the progress so far: After the driver's side was completed, it was time to turn to the passenger's side which wasn't any better. It had new floors, cross member, inner and outer a-pillars, inner and outer sills, fabricated much of the bulkhead. As for the front end, the inner wing had suffered from some crash damage at some point so it was best to replace completely . So far, the inner wing was removed and repairs to the chassis we
