  • Ford Model: escort 55 1.8

Posted 07 August 2010 - 11:42 PM

hi, just joined, only on my 2nd ever ford, my first was a fiesta 1.1L,19yrs ago,many moons have passed and i'm now driving an escort 55 van,she's a 1999(t) 1.8d,don't know how i ever got by without her,my daughter absolutely loves it,she's only 5 but loves coming with daddy window down for somewhere to rest her elbow (looking cool),swapped a kawasaki 125 trail bike for it,think i got the better deal though,found parts ralatively cheap and abundant (thankfully)(don't you just love scrappies),had to replace sill(new),n/s hub(2nd hand)cheaper than a new bearing,rear shoes and cables(new),inner driveshaft boot has now burst,but hey the trail bike needed a complete rebuild and i couldn't have my daughter looking as cool on a bike she'd never forgive me for the helmet hair :lol:

I would get it done professionally as it looks tricky to fit a clean bubble free tint :lol:
As to the laws, I believe it is anything you want on the back, but nothing at all on the front! (Although the company I asked to do mine said the police can only advise you to remove front tints if they are below 45)
