Thank you all very much lads

Well she passed her mot and is all legal!

Had her out a run yesterday to try and ''run in'' the engine a bit...engine now has around 45 miles on her! woohoo! lol

Man she's crazy loud on the road and handles like a dream, needless to say those medium compound ao48r's couldnt stop that rear end from hanging out a good few times....would have been rude not too officer! lol

After taking her out a blast, she was back home for a wash n dry then back in the workshop. Tried tackling the offspray that was on paintwork...man what a bloody hard job that is to remove. Just using t cut then polishing her.

Anyone recommend any other easier ways to remove offspray?...was tempted to use thinners lol however I have a few different kinds here. Maybe white spirit or turps

Got the pass wing, door and bonnet done last night and she looks nice n shiney

Other jobs still to do is wire/fab up the pick up for the speedo, fit rear towing eye which I made on sat there. Need to aquire a gear lever gaitor too.

Il upload some more pics soon

Well folks I thought it was about time for an update as I have been awfy busy with the escorts as of late and havent really had much time to be online or uploading pics, usually just pop em on fb however I have plenty of snapshots iv just uploaded

The last update on AFX was that I was removing offspray... and it worked a treat!

Heres some pics of here after her detailing session....ps I have arms like pop eye now! lol






Then it was mot time...passed with flying colours




In between getting the mk2 ready for mot and thrn running her in, I got ''Ozzy'' our mk1 Escort MSA logbooked and done a time trial with her.
Looking forward to actually competing in some rallies with the mk1 this year...thinking some single venue events to start with.
Heres some pics of the time trial and mods shes been getting lately...

Fire eater system all plumbed in..


Firewall all sorted...


Time trial...







After the time trial and getting the car MSA logbooked I began to think about the actual rallies I could enter with the car...so decided to treat her to some new goodies!...

A nice set of ap's as whats on my mk2 aswell as a set of billy coilovers and new top mounts etc etc...also ordered a new diff...now 5.1 compared to the 4.1...should be ideal on the tight stages!





Since the princess four pots came off Ozzy we decided to fit em onto EOO as she was running those m16 calipers which are good but wanted a bit more stopping power on her...




Been clocking up some miles in my mk2 lately which has been great... also got her all setup icluding fueling and carbs etc checked and I am loving the way she goes...and that loud pedal is fair addictive!




Some Shifty lookin character at the wheel...
