Thanks Lee, yes im very happy with the steering wheel, although is was a tad expensive i dont regret it at all.

Whats you plan? there is not much to an escort interior so can be hard to really spruse up. Im actually looking at changing the stereo to one of these. Although its a solid expense for not much gain really.

Thanks Drew, i had a look at your cortina thread a while back and looks like after these updates the car is definitely  on the right track, Aldrigde really seem to be top of the game in trimming.

Hopefully the suspension upgrades will help the itch for a bit, id love to spruce up the braking department after but tend to fall into the trap of ill just do a small upgrade, next minute im looking at AP kits etc. If only the bank was endless.

I recently had a heavy paint correction done on the car, i knew it was a backyard paint job (although done by a retired painter by trade) and had heavy buffing swirls throughout the car. Also being red without a clear coat parts of the car would turn out pinkish when in the sun. It ended up turning into a bit of a beast but after 30hrs of work it has come up a treat, its really changed the colour, it feels like the car it should be. Of course the only camera i have is attached from my iphone so the photos really do not speak to the change and commitment shown by the detailer.
