Not a lot has happened in the last year or so due to work commitments so little update from where we left off;

Wasnít happy with the rechromed inner headlights and luckily a set of New Old stock were sourced in Sunderland, what a gent and great price so not everybody is out to make as much money as possible and keep escort parts at escort prices rather than some of the inflated prices we see nowadays but thatís what you have to pay if you want it









Headlight backing plates removed once again





Headlights now in place on the backing plates





Finally happy with the lights



Now to fit the fuel pump / filter assembly with the boot floor marked ready for drilling



Pump now installed



Time to start making up some hoses





Tank and pump now connected



Now fuel regulator to the rail





Return was not so simple at first as the straight fitting on the rail was too close to the bulkhead



Quick change of fitting, thatís better



Return will have to wait till next week, honest will update again next weekend

Need to have another look at it when I am back, thatís her jacked up on the axle so leaf spring will lift a little bit more but not expecting that much more but more as she is close enough to the bump stop as she is

You neednít fit a return to the rear of the fuel rail, you could of fitted a single feed with a ďTĒ piece on the supply and blanked the rear rail.

It was set up without a return on the focus but it was chucking flames out the exhaust so hopefully this will cure it

Thanks boys, wanted one since I was a teenager and finally have exactly what I wanted. She was originally black but I remember a signal yellow one arriving in our village, since then wanted a yellow one but with a modern twist and happy how it turned out
