Mk2 Escort Wheel Nut Stud spline question I have recently bought some longeer...

Mk2 Escort Wheel Nut Stud spline question. I have recently bought some longeer studs off ebay as I felt the standard ones on my Mk2 were too short for my Minilites. The studs I bought were 47mm long but I could't fit them without removing the discs i've just fitted so I decided to shorten them a few mm to get them in. Having done that I now find the splined portion seems to bee a bigger diameter that the studs I,ve remoived meaning I cant fit them . I've left my verniers at work so I cant measure them but they definately look bigger. Are the two different sizes of metric stud or am i missing something??

    Bilstein strut advice needed. I've tried some minus 2" springs on the front of my recently acquired RS2000 and as soon as the strut is unloaded they fall out. I bought these springs years ago new from Burtons and thought I'd try them. Is it possible that my struts are longer than your average 2.8i Capri ones ( I don't know exactly what they are ) or did these springs always do this. I don't want to go to the expense of Coilovers just yet and much as I liked the way the car sat it's obviously not safe. Wouldn't have bothered me years ago , I guess I'm getting old and boring

        Octoral Paint Issues

        My car was painted last year in my friends bodyshop, we used a Max Meyers Filler Primer, then used Max Meyers 3011 primer, the base coat was Octobase in Ford 411 Radiant Red, Clear Coat was C500 HS420 Superb Clear Coat, H25 HS420 Hardener Medium and a TA910 Thinner Standard, everything after the primer was Octoral. Towards the end of November the car was moved to the lower workshop which is colder and can be damp when it rains at which point there were no micro blisters.

        I noticed some very small micro blisters in the clearcoat a couple of weeks later, we were able to scratch the base and clear away from the primer with a finger nail, and completely peel the paint off using a blade, there doesn't appear to be any adhesion between the base coat and the primer.

        An E type Jaguar was primed ( Max Meyers 3011 ) at the same garage and then painted at another body shop it was then returned and put in the lower workshop with my car, when I noticed the micro blisters in mine they checked the Jaguar and the paint had blistered and was coming off in exactly the same way as mine did.

        Octoral are blaming the bodyshop, the painter, the booth, the prep, the primer etc etc etc, basically everything other than their paint and don't seem interested in my issues at all ! The bodyshop I used paint 100's of car each year and have never had anything like this happen with any of their customers cars, but they don't use Octoral paint.

        My car was finished and fully rebuilt apart from a few small jobs, but is now stripped back to a bare shell awaiting blasting to remove the rest of the paint I couldn't scrape off with a blade, I have removed all the paint from the outside of the vehicle with nothing more than safety blade !

        Has anyone had any similar issues with Octoral paint ( seems to be just base and clear coat ) if so I would like to know so I can try and build a case against them.

        If not I would strongly advise against using it just in case you have the same issue

          The first photo was taken the day i purchased my x pack capri nine years ago , it was stored in a lock up for a long time, when i contacted the seller i told him not to clean it up because i wanted to see the car as it was, he opened the garage door and i thought wow what a car, even with the way it looked, which was incredibly filthy on the outside with the interior in an even worse condition. but thought i ve got to have this car and restore it as best i could,

          i,m so glad i went through with the purchase.

          second and third pics is how the car is now , most of you will know how i restored this car with help from a few friends , its taken nine years of blood sweat and tears to get to this stage, but well worth it,

          i enjoy driving and cleaning the car through the summer, and will cherish the car for years to come.

            Anyone got any ideas why I would have no drive on my mk2 escort with pinto,type 9 and tran x lsd? I've just put my pinto lump back in,it's been out for a couple of months and I've done nothing to the clutch or flywheel,type 9 stayed in the car when the lump come out,anyway it runs fine and goes in gear,well the gear stick feels like it's going in gear,let the clutch up and nothing.

            I disconnected the clutch cable and tried it and still nothing,clutch fork has the play a few mm like normal.

            The only thing I've done is moved the gearbox up from the mount so my engine sat more level,do you think it could of pulled the prop out away from the splines? I've moved it up about a inch.

            Any help would be much appreciated,been racking my brain and don't know what's going on.

              anyone know how to spot a fake pico injector? ive read lots of stuff on forums about fakes failing or having poor spray patterns, so i checked my supposedly genuine injectors. the one on the left im convinced is a genuine one from the very clear E printed on the plug, (checked webcon website for pictures) the other three are the same as the one on the right, they actually look slightly better quality than the left one but im noticing the different inprint on the plug. generally fakes are close matches but on closer inspection show themselves up. any thoughts people?

                  Question time for your Boxing Day evening

                  Question time for your Boxing Day evening

                  was going to change my wheel studs today on my mk2 escort 1600 sport and brought 14.3mm spline!

                  Now I realise that doesn't fit but has now also presented the problem that the front studs are around 13.7/8mm spline and the rears 12.8/9mm so I'm guessing that 13.1mm is the standard size for the rears but what is the fronts all about???

                  very annoying as I wanted to get this done over the xmas period so any advice and where I can the correct sizes from this week would be helpful

                  Thanks in advance

                    hi all. i'm in the process of putting a bias pedal box in my 100e. previously had one 0.750 master going to servo then feeding front and rear brakes.

                    is there a dual circuit servo i can run once i've put the two masters in with the pedal box? or is it best to sick with the single circuit servo and only use it for the fronts? also any advice what size master cylinders i should be using for front and back? running 105e drums at rear and 2 pot m16's at front.

                    would be interested to hear what setup people are running in there motors. thanks for reading.

                          Hello Ford freaks.

                          I´m the proud owner of a Ford 26m Hardtop from 1971 that´s running a Cosworth BOA 24v v6 engine.

                          It´s been going really well as a standars engine for the past 5 years and now it´s time for some upgrades.

                          To control the new setup i need a programmable ECU - I´ve found brands as Emerald & DTA witch can control 6 injectors and coils.

                          Do any of you out there have experience with programmable ECu for the BOA engine and can you recomment what else to choose ????

                          Thanks in advance - Rune.

                          Here is a few pictures of my 26m.

                            a bit of advice for a friend in Ireland that's not on the internet, he has a mk1 2 door Cortina, modded uprated suspension/brakes to near lotus spec, the engine and box are out of a 1963 lotus elan the twin cam, the car is mint! no rust, painted about 10 years ago so not fresh but is nice!!!! engine and box are mint and for what it is, it flys down the road, what would it be worth, the owner is just over 70 and I have been offered the car to buy but not sure what to offer for it, I don't wanna take the piss, he knows what the engine and box are worth and a rust free mk1 tina??? i'm just not sure, I want to give a fair price as I want it, its not been done as a lotus rep either which I like! I just think its a damn nice car, has restall recliner seats in it too which are super period!!!! I suppose its as close to a lotus 2 door tina I will ever get so obviously I would love to take it to some ford meetups

                                Can I request some help from this community please.

                                Months ago I was sold this vehicle, by someone I had dealt with before,and thought was trust worthy.

                                The car was described as having a blown engine. I paid the money in good faith, but as yet ,have never seen the car,which he was delivering to me,as this is his business.

                                I have literally hundreds of texts from the vendor promising me delivery, and now ,promising to refund the money. The excuses are getting really pathetic now.

                                Needless to say, I have had neither. I'm just intrigued to know the real story behind this car, before I report it stolen. I have already opened a case with action fraud.

                                These pictures are supposedly of the car, in his yard.

                                Thanks in advance for any information. I will treat any private messages as such.

                                      BRAKES DOING MY HEAD IN !!!

                                      Just plumbed up the capri with a new OBP floor mounted pedal box and when you press the pedal the back wheels lock solid and won't release until I bleed the pressure off.

                                      I thought the cylinder was goosed so swapped that but no joy.

                                      If I pull the handbrake it locks but releases but not if I use the foot pedal

                                      I've had the whole lot apart so many times now and am lost for ideas

                                      So any ideas or anyone have something similar happen??

                                      Setup as follows, OBP ProV2 floor mounted pedal box to .750 cylinder to a bulkhead fitting into handbrake with .625 cylinder then to cosworth rear calipers

So will be using a different pedal box with these type cylinders. What I want to know is which one is fluid in and which is to the brakes red or green. Obviously I have 2 of these cylinders one is 6.25 and the other is 7.00is it the larger number for the front brakes? And lastly I have 2 lockeed reservoirs with what looks to have push fit pipes......any idea where I can get the pipes from those to connect the cylinders....many thanks in advance (many thanks my first dealings with this type of brake setup

                                              Want to spend a day in the passenger seat of an iconic Ford?

                                              Passenger seats up for grabs on this year's Snowdonia Tour

                                              The always-spectacular Snowdonia Tour, organised every year by North Wales Classic Fords is always over-subscribed, but for this year's event, which takes place over the weekend of August 20-21, and for the first time ever, the organisers and tour participants are offering co-driver seats to a very limited number of people.

                                              “Some cars are rally prepared, some are almost identical to when they were manufactured - all are iconic classic Fords,” says Les Durrant. “We intend offering half of the available seats for a donation to Hope House, this will guarantee you a seat on a strictly first-pay basis, this buys a seat for one day. The remainder of the sets will then be put up for auction.”

                                              “This year the tour will feature more than 100 classic rear-wheel-drive vehicles, and the route is run totally through areas of outstanding natural beauty, Snowdonia.”

                                              The tour raises money for its nominated charity, Hope House Children's Hospice. To date the group has handed over in excess of £31,000 hopefully making the kids and their families lives a little easier.

                                                Would anyone be interested in purchasing a Classic Ford only track session at...

                                                Would anyone be interested in purchasing a Classic Ford only track session at Ford fair this weekend ? I blew up my pinto in my mk2 escort at classic ford and haven't managed to get another one built in time for this weekend. I'd rather someone like minded make use of my track time than it go to waste. I'm asking £30 (the cost price). I can take a PayPal payment and I will forward both emails I have from ford fair with all the vehicle and pit lane passes in them. If interested either comment or message me and I can give a phone number if you'd rather speak to me first. Classic ford only track session is sold out now so grab your last chance !

                                                  Roy's Cortina to Cortina epic charity drive is almost complete. We're almost there, journey back to UK tomorrow.

                                                  Almost £4000 in donations but we need more to get closer to the £10,000.

                                                  It's been a two year journey, which sadly my dad didn't see come to fruition but I promised before he died I'd do something special with the restoration which was meant for him.

                                                  Please search us on Just Giving @ Roy's cortina to cortina and help us raise more money before we get back.

Attention fellow petrol heads. Would you be interested in a local 'interesting' and classic vehicle event at The New Broom in Checkley, including camping, music and food. Just gauging interest at this point, might be this year, possibly next depending on response. Looking for 40+ vehicles at least. Anything goes as long as it's not Corsa with more speakers than cylinders, Tesco car park has that covered. Let me know if this floats ye boat.

                                                      Evening all,

                                                      Who fancies a little debate?!

                                                      I have this 69mk1 being restored to a high standard.

                                                      I originally intended to build it as a rally car but due to lack of time etc I now think a nice road car would suit me better!

                                                      I did think about a lotus rep but 5K for a 130bhp engine doesn't float my boat.

                                                      I'm thinking fit my 260bhp vauxhall behind a nice type 9, tramp bars on the back and full interior.

                                                      I already have the fabrication bits and most of the mechanicals which can be sold on to build the car.

                                                      I'm thinking a weld in cage, 6 linked, dog boxed Escort is not really going to be a thing I jump in every day and enjoy driving!

                                                      On paper I can sell all the goodies already collected and sell these on to pay for the change of plans.

                                                      I do know my way around an Escort so labour costs are not involved but struggling to see the woods for the trees at the moment.

                                                      So let the discussions commence!

                                                        Hi all

                                                        Hi all

                                                        The classic car club I play out with, North Wales Classic Fords, raise money as a group for Hope House Children's Hospice near Oswestry. To date the sum donated is over £31,000 which helps the kids and their families at very needy times

                                                        We hold a massive 2 day event in August this year the 20th and 21st, around Snowdonia which involves more than 100 classic rear wheel drive Fords - mk1 mk2 escorts, Cortinas, capris, anglias, vans, estates and even a classic mustang!

                                                        Search 'North Wales Classic Fords Snowdonia Tour' on You Tube for an idea of what you could be part of - it's overwhelming to see the public reaction as the 'convoy' passes through their towns and villages

                                                        I can offer a seat for a full days trip around one of the most beautiful parts of the U.K. In one of the above vehicles - some fully rally prepared, some modified or some as standard as they left the factories

                                                        There are 20 vehicles attending that have offered a seat to a person making a donation of only £75.00 for the full day's driving of approximately 100 miles on the most amazing roads a car fanatic could imagine

                                                        A day out perhaps for employees, clients, families or friends which would help this fantastic charity

                                                        Feel free to call me to chat, or please respond to this email me, if you feel the day is something that suits perhaps a small donation for me to add to the coffers

                                                        My number is 07720 941759

                                                        Kindest regards

                                                        Les Durrant.

                                                            as most know the car was bought and then broke /rebuilt few years ago by a well know guy in the escort/ford scene . Me and my dad are rebuilding it to race in cscc super saloon and modsport series. It would be nice to find and refit the original fibreglass doors which have cutout for side exhaust and the original bootlid which has a support frame and spoiler mounts from our chassis .

                                                            There Quite unique to the car and wouldn't really fit another mk2 without extensive modifying .

                                                            Any help /info and shares would be much appreciated .

                                                              A ground up, concourse restoration.

                                                              This particular vehicle has seen a 2 year long restoration, with almost all of the parts fitted to the car being imported from the UK.

                                                              The car:

                                                              1969 mk1 escort super ( square headlight model)

                                                              On the exterior, the car has seen a complete strip down and restoration in ermine white, finished with imported rubbers, seals, grommets and subsidiaries from East Kent and Burton power in the UK.

                                                              Headlights and tail lights are special order items from palmside in Australia.

                                                              The car has a complete Aldridge auto interior, from door cards, down to the foot well kick panels are brand new.

                                                              It's currently powered by an all methanol 2.2 (almost 2.3L) all steel pinto motor fed through 48mm webers and a custom branch manifold.

                                                              The vehicle is sat on custom ronal rs wheels that have been widened and studded.

                                                              A custom made coil over suspension system is fitted to the vehicle as well as a miriad number of custom machined parts to go with the nature of the build.

                                                              The car has a custom machined rally biased pedal box and disk brakes all round.

                                                              A true classic that has seen a build cost in the northern regions of £11500

                                                              Left to do:

                                                              The car requires a custom radiator, brake and fuel lines and some subsidiary wiring.

                                                              Asking price is £11500 not neg.

Was a bit disjointed this year with many people upset again with the newer cars that arrived again . We will work together with the other bigger clubs to try and sort this for the up and coming years.

                                                                  Numbers where down in general for the show and this wasn't down to the editors of the magazine but poor organising by the media Company that organised event . I'm sure we will speak with them to try and get it back how it should be for next year. Once again thanks all was a great weekend despite the issues.

                                                                  %d comments

My car came with some ,what Iook like, Capri struts converted to Coilovers and typically the spring platforms were seized stuck. I broke a couple freeeing them off so ordered some new ones from a company. The diameter accross the top of the threads on my struts is Ø55.0mm but the diameter accross the top of the threads on the platforms I've received are Ø50.0mm. I ordered Ø2.25" thinking that would be right for my struts and the invoice says thats what theses are. Have I ordered the wrong size or have I been sent the wrong size?Cheers, Gary

                                                                        Sad news not just for Anglia owners, but for anyone wanting a top quality exhaust..


                                                                        It is with a very heavy heart I type this but after 13 years of trading we have been forced out of business by Piper Cams, the people who have manufactured our exhaust range for the last 10 years.

                                                                        We will be closing the doors at the end of this month, 31st May 2016, any outstanding orders will be completed by that date.

                                                                        The Forum will remain OPEN for as long as people want to use it and Anglias at the Ace 2016 will go ahead as planned.

                                                                        As many have realised either from speaking to me or from seeing posts on here and on the Facebook we have not been able to supply exhaust products for some months now.

                                                                        This situation has come about because towards the end of last year Piper Cams appointed a new Sales Manager, Justin Buckman, who without spending any time getting to know me or understanding our market place decided to 'review' our account.

                                                                        We are a 'Contract Customer' so we contracted Piper to make exhausts for us, we paid for the development of all those products through a pre agreed order amounts and maintained exclusivity on those products by a guaranteed level of business each year. As part of this deal we had to order minimum order quantities and had minimum order values and Piper specified those quantities etc, we did not negotiate them they set the rules and we have worked within them for the last 10+ years, spending way over half a million pounds with them.

                                                                        Piper have a number of 'Contract Customers' in a number of different niche markets, from classic Ford to kit car and each Contract customer is different, some only have one manifold made to suit their particular application, some have manifolds and systems, everyone is different and to my knowledge no one has a range as big as ours, which makes us quite unique in that respect.

                                                                        As part of Justin's 'review' he wanted to bring our order quantities in line with other Contract Customers, so people who have one manifold may have to order 10 units at a time and thats what he wanted to do with us. He also wanted to remove our credit facility, something we have enjoyed for the duration of dealing with Piper and on their own Credit Controllers admission we had the best debtors days of any of their customers.

                                                                        %d comments

                                                                              One of the original Alan Mann Escort touring cars, out at Donington yesterday at the Donington Historic Festival.

                                                                              The first time AMR have raced an Escort since 1969!

                                                                              It was also the first time the car has been raced since its full restoration a few years ago.

                                                                              With Henry Mann driving for both stints of the 50 minute race, we finished with a provisional 15th overall - not bad for the oldest car out there, with several of the other cars being late eighties E30 M3 Touring Cars!

                                                                              The result might be amended at a later date once the timing data has been manually analysed. The torrential downpour halfway through the race fried Donington's timing computers!

                                                                              It was an awesome first event, and a good shakedown for the car.

                                                                              We'll be back out at Brands Hatch at the end of May if you fancy a closer look!

I have dug it out its been shortened to 48 inches to suit escort may be 48.5 the shafts have been shortened they appear to have been either cut or machined. Its fitted with a 3.75 CWP and ZF plate type LSD. Also has the alloy brackets to use sierra rear calipers along with the discs and calipers to suit (these will need freeing off/rebuild) also to go with this axle I have a pair of Spax rear coilover which appear to be in good condition and I believe I have all the 4 link bars which the axle appears to have brackets for.

                                                                                Anyone interested???? I need the following parts and would consider some sort of deal on all or any of the following: English LSD, twin 45s on a pinto manifold ready to go, Stage 3 pinto head or similar, pinto exhaust system, RS2000 Centre console, Pair of capri/RS front legs and most other escort bits lol

From a ford to a maclaran he amazes me with how clever he by day, They spent every weekend watching episode after episode together & eating pizza before bedtime, just over 1 year ago everything changed the worst thing ever happened, Harvey lost his hero, his best friend his daddy, his whole world was tipped upside down & since then I've had to help Harvey day after day doing everything he would of wanted to do with his dad etc he finds comfort in cars this is what him & his daddy spent doing in the short time he knew him, it was there special bond & it was unbreakable, he was his hero & his best friend, they were inseparable at times ... There's not a day goes by without the sentence "my daddy"...5 days ago he very nearly lost me too, the thought of my child been orphaned has haunted's a childs worst nightmare, you can't ever know what is going to happen he's spent the past 6 days been l me every single day in hospital for 2 hours bringing me, drinks, magazines & little presents (apples grapes) kisses and cuddles, wanting to take me home & having to keep saying goodbye but today he finally got to bring me home his little eyes sparkled, he helped get me dressed his little smile lightened up the whole ward as he held my hand all the way out of the hospital. I just can't express how much this child actually means to me He comforts me through the hardest times & through the night when I'm alone, he treats me to lunch or sweeties with his pocket money, (so he thinks i put the money back) he carries my bags of shopping in from the car, he strokes my face at night when I'm sad, he gives the best cuddles ever & he's become my bestest ever friend he pretends he's my doctor when I'm poorly, he likes to take over the housework at home..hes always there when I'm down or upset, he wipes away my tears..He's a true gentlemen and I've been blessed he is just the bestest son i could ever have he's going to make a wonderful husband & I want to Give something back to my little warrior. Make my day this kid has been through so much in his small life I just want to make him the happiest 5 year old in the world...lets make this little diamond geezers day! He deserves a gold medal if this can reach someone who can make his birthday wish of seeing some of these

Today I thought I'd have a look at the box of wiring I got with my unfinished project Mk1. I managed to identify the remains of four dash looms most of a fwd loom and the loom in the photo. It's labeled as a front to back section but I'm not convinced it's for an Escort, can anyone confirm. I know the rear light connectors have been butchered as I know the car had non Ford rear lights at some unfortunate stage of its life. To be honest, all this piecing together bits of old loom, I'm tempted to buy one of those generic new looms. Has anyone tried one in there Escort ?

                                                                                                  I've just fitted my reconditioned ATE Master Cylinder after discovering it was leaking fluid into the Servo. The brakes were pressure bled and still the case continues......Hardly any braking at all, the pedal travels down to get very little braking.

                                                                                                  I did a Servo test (pump the pedal 20 times and hold and turn the ignition on) and the result - nothing !!! So I'm thinking has too much brake fluid leaking into the Servo has done some damage in there ??

                                                                                                  If it was just the Servo alone, shouldn't I get some braking at least with a harder pedal instead of hardly any braking at all ??

                                                                                                  I'm using Wilwood 4 Pot Forged Dynalite Calipers with Vented discs and Wilwood PolyMatrix Q fast road brake pads. These were fitted just over 11yrs ago with the less than average road use over the years.

                                                                                                  All was fine until I was getting a softer pedal last year (despite passing the MOT last October on the brake test) and I discovered recently brake fluid leaking into the Servo. If the Servo is the next culprit now after doing the Servo test, where do I go from here ??

                                                                                                  Any ideas and suggestions please !!!!!!!

It's a 3.0, but think shell was originally a 1.6 or 2.0. It's got 2.8 front legs on it, a baby atlas with LSD and converted to disc brakes. It's been converted to 5 speed. Got mot till end of the year. If anyone is interested in the car or any bits pm me. Sick of messers on eBay! The car is not mint. Few bits of trim missing. The wipers work when they want think it's a bad earth but got a spare motor just incase. It does run drive stop well. I haven't driven it far not been the weather and it could do with a service.

                                                                                                      QUESTION/IDEAS ??? I own the old nail in my profile pic, some of you may know it. It's got coilovers , with 450lb springs, compression struts. No roll bar, it's got a bronze bushed 2.2 quick rack (not 2.4) with GRP4 alloy mounts. Brand new knuckle joint and an electric Column believed to be corsa but could be fiesta as the indicator and wiper stalks are fiesta??? The car has been set up by a very well known fella and corner weighted but feels as vague as fook on the steering to the point that it's dangerous. Anyone had anything like this with an electric column. And anyone got a cossie powered escort without PAS how heavy is it on the handle bars ? THOUGHTS PLEASE

                                                                                                          Losing him in 2014 and restoring the car has been a tremendous journey. It's my dream to make sure others don't suffer in future by trying to find the cure.

                                                                                                          12,000 members on this many of you will donate a £1? I'd easily meet my fundraising target of £10,000.

                                                                                                                    hi there I'm after a bit of advice on my crossflow if possible. I had an oil leak coming from the plate at the end of my oil pump which I cured by taking the plate off and replacing the o-ring that sits behind this. since then the engine has started leaking oil from the top of the engine through the rocker cover. I've changed the rocker gasket etc to make sure it's not this and the engines had piston rings done about 2 years ago. I'm worried that it's the rings again and that I've got pressure in the crankcase. the engine seems to drink oil anyway even before this started. are crossflows notorious for this? and is there anything else that could be causing this leak? I've checked that the breather isn't blocked etc. thankyou in advance for any help.

Spur of the moment purchase last thursday over the phone (only been up for sale for a day) flew over to Ireland the day after on Friday and drove her home up through Northern Ireland to Belfast, got the ferry over to Cairnryan in Scotland and then had a four hour drive through the night down into northern England. It was a long day but was 100% worth it for the car i've come home with. I was missing my last Capri that I sold in September a lot more than I thought I would, saw this and had to have it. Hope you like it guys.

Taken at the time escorts were cheap and almost disposable!! The black Mk1 cost me £350, That was running MOT'd and rally prepared, to a level. That got built into the Mk2 after an unfortunate meeting with a dry stone wall. The Mk2 shell, again was fully prepares and cost a massive £500!!! If only I had a crystal ball. Both competed in the East Midlands road rally championship, 1985 to 1989 ish. I daren't work out how much its recently cost me to get another Mk1 and Mk2.

Would love to see it painted and re-commissioned back to its former glory by a true Capri Fan and being honest, not sure will I ever get to do it. It's 1969 with 21K, must look to see have I any old MOT's but just by looking at the car itself, it's obvious the mileage is real. It has the best original interior that I have seen. Had it running and driving last week but would recommend a full overhaul first as everything is original in the car, except the drivers wing. It needs welding on the front of both sills where they meet the A Post. It needs a Drivers side wing as it's very average (only resting on the inner wing). Not sure what to ask for it, but I know it's extremely rare. If people are interested, let me know, if not, thanks for looking and I'll try eBay to see how it goes. In my head, I will need at least £6K to consider selling it... Ideally it needs a good once over, a day's welding and a full paint job. All trim, lights etc are with the car. Drivers seat was only removed to show how good and original the floors are. Thanks for looking.

                                                                                                                                                1960 ford 100e deluxe

                                                                                                                                                It's been stored for many years inside and outside unfortunately. It will need welding underneath sills etc. No keys but do have old style logbook. Complete from what I can see not a weekends work but certainly not past restoration. Grille is inside the car along with a few other bits. Opening front 1/4 Windows however the passenger glass has broken. Good number plate which when moted should be able to be taken off (4 digits and 2 letters) I checked the number plate against similar and would say removed worth around £1200. If nothing else it would be a great source of spares for anyone doing a restoration already.

                                                                                                                                                £750 Ono

Anyway, another try, I am attempting to attach some photographs of a really HOT RWD Ford, for your perusals.

                                                                                                                                                  It is a GT40 that I navigated 300ks around the Charente lanes of France a few weeks ago, if I can find the write up, I shall try once more to attach it.

                                                                                                                                                  I am also attaching a picture of the Lotus Cortina's that Jimmy Clark drove during his magical racing career, these were taken in Duns last June.Regards, Les.

                                                                                                                                                          Hi guys, I'm after some advice please on panel fitting in a Mk1 escort. I've got inner and outer sills and front floor sections to fit. Basically which do I fit first? Now i don't know if I've got wrong panels or they all need trimming, but the inner sills and floor pans over lap with the same sections of floor. So do I fit say the floor and trim the inner sill to the edge and seam weld? And the new floor has a raised lip. But I've taken the seat cross member out so do I flatten this lip and fit under the seat cross member or trim the lip? And only bits of the inner and outer sills are rotten, the rear half is good ,so would I be better off canibalising the new sills to replace only the rotten bits or cut it all out and replace with a new ( thinner)repair panel?
