  7. You have skills! an amazing job. My Mk1 fiesta resto fell by the wayside when my son was born. hated seeing it sitting there unfinished so I sold it. hopefully in a few years ill be able to start another.
    Looking forward ( as im sure you are ) to seeing the finished article.

    I've joined this forum today because I just had to say a massive massive well done. I've had 3 of those little monkeys, and all 3 fell to bits. Just goes to show eh!!
    And the worst thing is, I've been in the trade for 28 years AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    Deep breath, dig your heals in, you're on the fun bit now.
    OUTSTANDING !!!!!!!!

    Hi Chaps.

    Just like to say a big thank you to all of you who have liked my facebook page so far https://www.facebook.com/www.Autoresto.co.uk . As you may or may not know I am starting up my own vehicle restoration company this year and I really appreciate the support from this forum and its members. I've had a few enquiries to date so I'm looking forward to putting some more old classics back on the road.

    The RS has had some delays in the body shop but I have been told this morning she will be ready for collection the early part of next week. I will get some more pictures up soon.

    I have also been busy reproducing some hard to find replacement parts which may help someone who is restoring a MK2 Escort. These are now available on ebay.



    or you can get them from my website.
