hi all

just thought id say hi to you all and introduce myself a little

hubby and i have had many fords and he is a ford man through and through from ,mk 1 2 4 escorts, mk 3 5 cortina's 2x sierras 1 of which was a 2.9 4x4 , also we have owned mk2 3 4 granadas inc cosworth and have now moved on to a white 1985 2.8i special capri but the capri is not the reason im here in the forum .

last week for my birthday my darling husband bought me a stunning example of a battered old mk 6 escort van in royal mail post box red , compleate with a royal mail stamped number plate .... cool huh

a bit about me .. im an airbrush artist from kent uk i havent been doing it long but im getting there the reason i have the van is to carry my equipment about in and do some artwork on it as a kinda advert for my airbrushing so i need to sort the old bag of !Removed! out and turn her into something special skirts wide arches etc u get the picture ....

so there it is , i will be pestering you all in the forum and will need plenty of help as the husband said its my project and i gotta do it myself as hes got to much to do with his beloved capri and on a tight budget to cos his cars a rotten money pit lol

Hi and welcome to the club

Sounds a good little project.

Love modified vans, think they look awesome.

You'll have to get some pictures up of your artwork.

I know a couple of people enquiring to me, if i know any air brush artists.

thanks for the welcome .... the plan for the van was for it to be a show peice for my art as i have painted everything from canvas to guitars t shirts model trucks and even my kids but i have not yet done a car .... i have had plenty of people ask me to but i want to do my own first although i do have every faith in my work !

i couldnt wait to get started on the van and seen as ive alot of body mods to do i had to and something i could paint and wouldnt need to be redone when ive finnished the mods .... im going to get some black light uv lights to go between the glass and the art ...so the art should glow when its dark

o and i bought a new back door for it on ebay for 99p cool huh lol
