    Hi I bought this car in January this year as a long term project, the previous owner had carried out most of the modifications but I'm not too happy with the work so am re-doing most of it to a better standard.

    I'd like to think I'll get a BDA but as it's out of my budget It'll probably be a 2Ltr pinto, all steel and looking at at least 200 BHP.

    I'll be building it for the forests, and Historic spec so a Pinto is my only budget choice at the moment but I'll be building it myself so all steel., dry sumped etc.

    This is a long term project and I want to fit the best parts I can afford, fully floating atlas axle, big four pot brakes, gartrac suspension and as much carbon fibre I can find!!!!:cool::cool::cool:

  12. Thats why it is taking so long
     
  13. Looks like you have to registered and logged into Turbosport to view that thread and photos :(

    On the plus side there should be plenty of decent roads and forest tracks to enjoy the Escort after it is finished, so maybe Wales isn't such a bad place.

    Burn't out my Black & Decker grinder last week so just bought a Dewalt.

    While I'm waiting for a new lower radiator crossmember I had a go at repairing the scuttle panel as they are difficult to find as a replacement.

    Just needs a skim of filler to finish after it's plug welded to the car.
