  1. Welding 99% complete and currently finishing up before going to the painter. I'm not 100% sure on the rear boot opening. The panel beater is recreating the original 'dimples' given both rear quarters have been in and out once or more times. I've seen an nice LHD Ghia recently with original paint and the location of these dimples was different but then I searched online and found some with a lower location like mine. It also had like a metal bar running above the spare wheel and below the boot opening (which mine doesn't) but I don't think it had the same thing above the fuel tank on the oth
  2. Some shots taken last weekend by the photographers we have planted on our main coast road 😀 Odometer now reads a whopping 17,800km 😛
  3. Just thought of sharing some recent (ish) pics of the mk1 whilst the mk2 is taking its time. Just gets the occasional wash, oil change and run/show (old man won't let it out if he sees a cloud 😂) No plans really other than keeping it as it is 😁
  4. My guess is the later stardust silver is less blueish than on mk 1's, not sure though.
  5. Managed to find the '75-'76 Ford UK colour list complete with overleaf notes , might be useful to someone else. Looks like stardust silver it is. Interestingly enough, the silver on Escort Ghia models was "a special 2 coat metallic silver instead of stardust".
  6. Doors gaps finished, rear panel and spare wheel well welded and boot lid bolted on. Still a lot to finish up but starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel Still not 100% convinced on the colour as the number of colours gracing the mk2 seems to have been infinite 😁 but very much inclined on silver grey (old man's favourite colour on the mk2). It has to be a colour which was available on 1975 models. Coincidentally the mk2 pope John Paul II had was a 1975 model and finished in Astral Silver. Was this the only silver available for that year? Long shot but anyone has a full list of
  7. We were quite blessed with the weather last week so took the Sierra for a quick run while everyone else was wrapping gifts [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks! I was originally planning to put slightly bigger wheels and lower it but now happy with the factory look. Given the condition and mileage, I agree that its wiser to leave it as it is. Mirror covers done as well Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Some progress on the shell...passenger rear quarter back on. Rear panel welding/alignment will be next Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
