Ford Escort Mk2 Restoration

2 posts in this topic

I am wanting to start a restoration project on an Mk2 Escort, bearing in mind I have little to no knowledge of how to restore a car but I have a family member who has been a mechanic practically all his life (I don't know how much help I will get off him other than advice as he is busy, I will be doing most of the work myself), I may be able to get some help from friends, how difficult would this be considering I am willing to take my time on the project to learn not just to build the car? And how expensive would you say it would be from past experiences?

I'm also thinking of spraying it Ermine White, I know its not an orginal colour but 2 of my mates have both got Ermine White Mk1's and I think it would look pretty sick having those 3 cars together at a car show etc? What is your opinion?

Thanks

having just bought a mk 2 escort and starting to restore it your main problem will be the dreaded rot demon these cars have a tendancy to rot and will need a lot of welding what is something what you need special equipment to do and is best left to someone who can weld, all the other parts are easy to come buy but you can soon end up spending lots of £ as i have. mechanically they are a fairly easy car to work on but it helps that i am a mechanic by trade
