  1. Get the mk6 on the road and use it as a running project . not have to worry about parking it up and walking away from it in the car parks etc may even get around to giving the mk3 some attention it needs lol

    SHOW SEASON 2019

    Hi all Show season will soon be upon us once again The first show for us as a club is normally the first weekend of may and has been simplyford down in Hampshire followed by fiesta in the park .well this time they clash with each other and another show held in clacton . ford on the fairway on may 5th it doesn't help us as a club due to lack of members attending shows. tends to be around 5 to 10 members most of the time it may be a case of a couple of members attending each show so please fly the flag for the escort cabriolet club .i will post the shows on our facebook page and it may get non members interested in coming along some of our regular shows we attend through out the year have also moved venues so looks like big changes this year . so please let us no if you have or want to attend local shows in your areas regards Ollie

    An extra Inch!!

    you will notice the difference when opening and closing the vynel roof on a cold day to a hot day . just be very careful not to over stretch them handles other wise you will end up snapping them :<( regards ollie

    just finished my cabby

    Very nice
  7. did you get it sorted ? remove the door cards and there is a bolt that with slight adjustment drops the window . make sure it catches the seal though as to much and you will get a draft if you have a workshop Manuel it does show pics regards ollie

    Here they are Trev turns out it’s the same place I picked my panels up for my mk3 they don’t list them on there website though
  10. Well peeps that was the last show of the season for most of us :>( Where has this year gone . i no i haven't done most of the shows this year due to other commitments was a great turnout considering it was pretty much as far Kent as you can get for most attending . the original plan of the convoy didn't go quite to plan either as 1 member got lost and another waited at the wrong services partly me to blame :>( we got there in the end lol The show itself was very good with some very strange and beautiful cars on show .. you had to be there to see some of them . i think every one who was there for the day had a great time because each and every one of them cars holds memory's in some way or another :>) we will be going back next year and hopefully the other two shows wont clash :>( For those that attended please add your photos to the gallery for all to see.. couple of the club stand below Thanks ollie
