biggrin Escort Project - Take 2.

As some may be aware my last Escort project came to a sad end.... I had to scrap the shell and hang onto the good bits.
Now Ive bought a new Escort to play with.... its a 1978 Mk2 2 litre manual 2 door.
Its a bit rough in places but it wont take much effort to fix it up.

Not much for the short term.... just fixing up the body and getting the whole thing into a respectable state.
Its been running a little rough and has been looked after by retards so i'm just fixing previous mistakes at the moment.

I was supposed to have it done before the little one arrived but oh well... these things cant be planned. hehe
