Haven't posted for a while so just thought i'd say hello and share some pictures. This is the before and after of my daily Ghia X 2.0l silver top. Given to me as a gift just over a year ago she was in a bad way as you can see by the picture. Full of dents and bad paintwork. I just loved her from the moment i took the keys. Decided it was one to save and not just leave to rot. The inner shell is sound so i found a donor car and replaced all the doors, wings, bonnet, boot, bumpers and lights. Thankfully the interior was in really good condition. She is know looking much cleaner and is a mondeo im determined will live on to see classic car status. There is still plenty to do but im glad this old girl was kept away from the banger track. Shame there aren't more being saved.

      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

          Ford escort XR3i 1988 F reg PROJECT — Old ford forum

          Ford escort XR3i 1988- F reg - PROJECT

          Bought the car a couple of year ago as a project but never got round to doing it, due to time and work. It's covered 96,500 miles. The car is currently SORN and has been since I bought it. I've started the car every month since I bought it and has always fired up on the first turn of the key. I'm including everything I've stripped off the car and bits I've bought to restore the car which you will see in the pictures, I have also got some rs turbo recaros in good condition which will also be included. There was no history with it when I bought it, the only thing I've got is the v5 in my name. there is the odd bit of rust, on both sills, rear arches and floor pan, I've got 2 new full sills and 2 new rear archers included in sale. There's the odd few dents and scratches around the car, I've tried to include everything in the pictures but would advise you to view the car. As it is SORN it will need to be trailered away. If you have any questions feel free to ask

                  Right guys, I no it's not everyone cup of tea, as it defiantly is not mine. So can we please lay off the hate posts

                  mk4 escort van which has been highly modified. The van was built around 15years ago and was built to be a sound system van, and had bullet proof windows fitted,

                  The front end is custom, the wings bonnet and bumper have been customized to fit the bmw head lights. it has bullet proof front windows, with twin wiper conversion each side. 1 piece rear door, custom rear bumper and a smoothed in rs turbo body kit. also as you can see from pictures the little rear quarter windows have been removed and its been de handled and de locked

                  I brought this just for a bit of sport with the hydros, when I brought it I never heard it run, as it only had the engine loom fitted, so after a play with the wiring I had the running.

                  i wired the hydraulics up and they all work well (which I have videos of)

                  so down to the other modified parts

                  hydraulic working

                  straight though twin exhaust system

                  1.8 turbo diesel engine which i was told was about 140bhp

                  custom inlet

                  uprated turbo

                  uprated boost hose system

                  running s2 rad and intercooler

                  uprated front breaks unsure what they are

                  vented rear disc conversion

                  2 alternators to run stereo system that was going to be fitted

                  comes with spoiler for roof

                  was told ib5 lsd gearbox but no proof

                  flipper rear axle

                  straighten springs

                  the van is very soild but does require some cosmetic body work. please don't think your coming to buy a van that you can drive away this in a unfinished project the needs finishing off.

                  Looking for 1000 Ono as I no I can pull a fair bit more off it in bits.

                  van is located in Birmingham any other question please feel free to give me a ring on 07892370196

                  If I don't have any interest I will be breaking in the next week or so.

                  Can be delivered at cost of 20 pounds plus 75p a mile

                      my cortina was picked for this programme see if you can see it at the end We was asked by a few people to remind them when the "Skipton" episode of "Our Dancing Town" is on.

                      It is on BBC 2 this Tuesday at 9pm.

                      This is the TV show we were asked to help supply a few cars for background fill. Thankfully a good few guys and girls on this page came forward to help. (Many thanks to those that came). After watching the first episode last week on Barnsley we are really looking forward to seeing how this show comes out. See what cars you can spot right at the end! Enjoy.

                            I bought this little beauty late last year and as is apparent by this photo she has a glaring issue which is stopping me putting her through MOT, which I think otherwise she'd pass with little effort. Does anyone here know where I can get hold of a replacement rear bumper for a Mk6 "P" Reg Escort Saloon? Willing to travel for a good replacement.

                                Zetec 1.8 130hp engine for sale.

                                I was originally going to use this in my mk1 fiesta so I have already modified the sump. It's been striped down for a rebuild and an inspection and everything is A ok.

                                I was going to paint and rebuild it using all new gaskets and new water pump so the engine is still striped down ready for a rebuild.

                                I'm looking to get my money back so the price is what it owes me.£250 no offers

                                I do have the rest of the car that the engine came in which still has all the wiring and ecu's at extra cost.I gave £500 for everything but some parts have been sold so the rolling shell would be another £100.

                                So £350 for everything

                                I'm located in newcastle under lyme staffordshire st5.

                                    Now the sound it must also play a part, it's the music of the engine that steals my heart!

                                    And the smell now that can't be beat, the whole damn package is right up my street!

                                    No other cars make me smile like that, to me they're all just pieces of crap!

                                    Others will probably disagree, but it's a Ford all day long for me

                                          FOR SALE

                                          Zetec 1.8 130hp engine for sale.

                                          I was originally going to use this in my mk1 fiesta so I have already modified the sump.

                                          It's been striped down for a rebuild and an inspection and everything is A ok .

                                          I'm looking to get my money back so the price is what it owes me.

                                          £250 no offers

                                          I do have the rest of the car that the engine came in which still has all the wiring and ecu's at extra cost.

                                          I gave £500 for everything but some parts have been sold so the rolling shell would be another £100.

                                          I'm located in newcastle under lyme staffordshire st5.
