  1. Reflection Shots

    Not done one for a while. :)
  2. MK4 headlights

    I like the twin head lamps on Escorts with body coloured bumpers......quite hard to find a good set now though. :)
  3. Dry and cracked, but still give a good seal. So don't want to change them, unless I have to. :)
  4. Cheers mate, it's great fun....I love working on it. :) Meant to Pm you, do you do any products that revitalise rubber window seals? :)
  5. First of all, a pic with no switch in the scuttle panel. :D Then, got a custom longlife exhaust system made. :D Downpipe silencer cut off, 2 1/4" bore to flange. 2" bore from downpipe back with 2 x silencers. 2 1/4" rolled out tip. Video clip, sounds great on road. Quite when cruising and a nice rasp when you put your foot down. Loads more responsive now too. :D https://youtu.be/nkNCUsOSvO8
  6. Calipers and drums painted, another job off the list. :) Wheels back on. Happy with the results. :D
  7. Yeah, just a rattle can from Halfords. When painting I didn't paint right upto the tape, so I didn't get a hard edge. Once paint had hardened, I used cutting compound with 1500 then 2000 grit wet and dry. Till blended in. Paint is then left dull, so I done a few more passes with compound and a damp cloth. Then auto glym super resin polish, about 10 coats. To build the shine back up. In a week or so I'll add a few coats of wax. :)
  8. Blended in as best I can, looks loads better than it did. :)
  9. It was a isolation switch that the last owner fitted. Cuts power off...was a right pain, and was playing the electrics up. Cheers Dan, been bugging me since I brought the car. :)
  10. The last pic of the car with This stupid thing And off Hole filled, and sanded back. And painted Just need to let the paint harden, then blend it in. It's not perfect......but first time I've filled a hole in on a car, and better than that switch lol :)
  11. Got a few things to do, firstly I need the idle co2 setting. It's not rich enough so have to feather the throttle when in traffic etc. Remove stupid switch from scuttle panel, fill hole, paint and blend in. And all booked in for a custom longlife exhaust....Can't wait lol.
  12. Looks good mate, and some nice plans. :)
  13. At a car show today, currently sat in the shade lol :) The Escort the night before. At the show
  14. xr3i with mondeo 5 spoke wheels

    You need the wheel bolts with the washer on. They're quite hard to get hold of....best searching Ebay, or on Facebook pages. As there are some aftermarket versions available. :)
  15. MOT passed now! Connector had come loose, drive shaft seals have also been done. So all good to go again. :D
