  1. Just been out to the garage and was advised to use Schultz as the under seal. Must say it’s easy to put on, just connect to the air hose and spray it everywhere on the underbody. going to red oxide and chassis paint the axle .
  2. Hi im going to prime it all underneath first with that Red oxide . I will have a look at the marine paint cheers. What you got your eyes on next ?
  3. Ford car show today. Red xR3i and RS cab there. Would be great to see more of you turning up. Also there was a Sound test contest of who had the bad ass exhaust (((loudest
  4. I’m after fabric for the door cards . Anyone know where to get the same colour if possible please
  5. I have spent the day removing the interior so we can see how much rot has gotten inside. Pretty tidy inside really! I have been grinding off all the loose rust and paint to get a better picture of how bad things are. My welder thinks it’s pretty good . Everything underneath the car that is loose has also been grind back to clean metal. Next Friday the back axle comes off to clean that up and prime and paint. Everything will get a clean with new brakes and plates on the back of the hubs. spare wheel area has had it! Will need to cut that right out! chassis has few minor holes an
  6. This Friday I take loads of the rot and grinding back to metal. Any advice welcome too please.
  7. Had our first look under the car and it’s pretty solid . We are going to grind off all the paint on Friday. The spare wheel pan is knackered and will be cut out . Are these still available I wonder? If not we will make one best we can! battery tray isn’t great but again we can’t find one so will fabricate one up. Will post pictures as we go from Friday. This is the original colour and we will respray once all done. we have original escort wheels to go back on her too.
  8. After 4 years of sitting on my drive breaking my heart of not being used it’s going into the garage for a revamp. I will be putting new sills, of which I can’t find. So will be cutting new ones for a three door escort to fit! New hood to be ordered too , anyone recommend a good supply please email me, mohair black wanted. Well be cutting out the rusty battery tray too and replacing with new. also I have a set of Ford wheels to put back on her, get these ugly alloys off lol The doors have rust on the bottom too, so hoping to cut and repair these if money and time allows.
