Red MK2 Two door

Thought i might make a bit of thread as im starting to post a bit more and ask questions on a few fb groups so it always helps put a name to a post so to speak.

Few years back this article popped up on speed hunters and made me get on gumtree the same night. Have always loved escorts but never brought one when i was younger as parents advocated to save my money etc. Well im older now and had to front up a fair few more dollars and finally brought one.

I brought a in pieces mk2 2 door and proceeded to put it in my mums garage, and its sat there, for about 4 yrs now. In the mean time my evo blew up, got rebuilt and blew up again so once i was able to sort that mess out and move it on this beast popped up on gumtree.

Essentially body work had been done and put back together by a retired older guy, downsides were it ran pretty rough but drove and had a terrible vinyl interior in it. I snapped it up and proceeded to rip out the vinyl interior and have some recaro fishnets retrimmed to match the uk rs2000 spec seats, rear done to match also. Had the carby rebuilt by a mechanic and few small things done and she now drive like a dream.

Always small things to do but slowly and surely working through those, im just enjoying driving it around.

Cheers

Robbie

    Another one from a cars and coffee 

    Starting to collect most of the superpro catalogue to replace most of the bushes in the car. Mechanic had the car hoist and have a few maintenance things to take care of such as wheel bearings etc.

    Other then that i think ill order a anti dive kit soon, 22mm kmac bar is waiting in the shed, sourced some capri struts to do a coil over conversion and have king lowered leafs waiting under the bed,

    The anti-dive kit will stiffen up your front end nicely,I have one on my RS, don't need a strut brace.
