  1. Car goes for paint on Saturday, can't wait! :D Also just been out for blast, still running spot much fun to drive, and handles like it's on rails. :D Once it's back from paint, I'll fit my refurbished gear knob with new gaiters. And treat all the leather trim. Also trying to make my mind up wether to get new alloys or get the St ones refurbished with new Centre caps.
  2. Nice little drive out in the Escort, breakfast then shopping on the way home lol 😁
  3. Glad it's finally been done mate.......enjoy. :D
  4. Cheers mate, won't get used to the weekend...... Its internal plastic paint, it's basically dye. So should be fine. :)
  5. Door handles re-fitted. :D
  6. Cheers mate, yeah it does......get asked questions most places I stop lol :)
  7. Cheers mate, I can't wait lol :D
  8. Cheers mate. 👍
  9. First off, the jerking problem seems to of gone......noticed it was only doing it when I had less than 1/4 tank. So put some fuel system cleaner in and brimmed the tank. Used 1/2 a tank so far, and all good through the rev range so far. Fingers crossed. :) Also brought a second hand gear knob with really good leather. But the polished finish was going grubby to quick. So sanded down with the drill, coloured the numbers dark blue and about 4-5 coats of clear acrylic metal lacquer. :) Ready to go back in the car, but going to get some new gaiters first. :)
  10. One of the things that has bugged me since I got the Escort is that I had window switches and winders. Because of the Rs turbo door cards, also the handles were very tatty. Before Wet and dried, cleaned, prepped and sprayed with interior dye. Blanks made, ready to bond in when paint has hardened.
  11. Cheers mate, I love the look with the new alloys.....same wheel and tyre size. But 7" wide, old wheels were 6.5" wide. Little bit more grip, that's about it. :)
  12. Got some pics today. :D
  13. Yep, found my set at 26psi all round. :)
  14. Yeah I like both wheels, but these suit the car better and are Ford wheels......wanted a set of these since I brought the car. :D Tyre pressures will be dropped today, when I find my gauge lol..... Then I'll double check on Sunday at the garage. :)
