I like that, how are you getting on with the n/a cossie? I like stuff to rev, but daily is a diesel, escort is turbo, got a spare cossie head and know where there is a 2 door escort tucked away, was going to try to bring them together when i get time, ( if )!

Khanlad I think the engine is amazing it is the lowest spec engine that wayne does and I have driven and driven it apart from using loads of petrol I don't put any other fluids in it, not bad for a engine that I was told would be unreliable I put it in the garage over xmas get it out 3-4 months later and starts on the button.

 

SmokeEm I have tore a ligament in my knee so I sleep when it don't hurt the worse thing is I had just started the work on the gold car when I done it D'oh.

 

Vista YKT mate after we put it in myself and another member went for a 6 hour drive all over the Essex country side try doing that with your S/C gearboxs lol.

 

Dalmarshall cheers Darren hopefully you will pop in at the weekend and say hello mate.

What exactly happened? Can't work out how both cars are damaged on the offside. Unless the near side of the cortina was damaged too?

I would guess one span and I reckon it was the escort as the 'tina looks like a good front quarter whack? - thats racin' it happens!

Now u have seen the vid I knew it has had a smack on that side and I never liked how the quarter lined up with the door so after a lot of looking I found this NOS never been fitted

All I had to do now was get someone to fit it for me, I will do that for you said O.H.C aka phil so of it went to his new workshop which is next to WPE and there is a sprayer next to him so you can get your car sorted all in one place.

The only problem was once you start to digger you find allsorts of other rot so I now needed a new front wing which I found very easily, I wanted a NOS wing not a repo one

Cortina hit the Escort as he lost it and swapped lanes backwards IIRC
