Haha that'd be nice Deano, I've been playing with the manifold and having a chuckle at the port size. Not much power to be had out of the old pre-crossflow. I don't remember winning any races in the GT I had in my teens so it looks like the record will stand

So back too it, I got a price on fixing the other manifold but in the meantime found another, better one, for half the price so grabbed it and had it faced.

After that it was into the shed to remove all the casting marks and give it a buff and polish, spent a saturday morning on it and reckon it was time well spent, it'll match the headers when I have them ceramic 'chrome' sprayed.

Doing another batch of powder coating this week, the cars coming along well at the moment.
Cheers Drew

G'day Len,
Still painting and detailing odds and sods. Haven't touched the body in a while, taking a couple of weeks holiday in the new year so I'll get a good run at it then.
Lifes sort of getting in the way at the moment, the nephews just started karts so I'm getting really involved with that. The bugs bitten me too, been doing a few track days in the TE50.
Made friends with the Escort again after the 'burnout' of building it and am driving the wheels off it every chance I get.
The Cortina's still on the radar though, can't wait to be driving it aswell.
Cheers Drew
