    Next the seat belt anchor plates are welded to the floor pan and will eventually be covered by the sills.









    And then primed

    Thanks

    Firstly the door skin had holes drilled approx every 3 inches along its edge, so that it could be plug welded, then primed and painted inside.

    I

    I've highlighted the holes in this picture.

    Then the door skin was offered up to the door shell and only the top corner tacked, this allows the skin position to adjusted to ensure the best fit. It was then crush fitted and finally welded using the holes already drilled, finally after paint I'll use some seam sealer to prevent any moisture ingress.

    Fairly time consuming but the fit is fantastic.

    Re: Escort Mk1

    Mated with a type 9 gearbox



    As the gearbox is longer that the standard escort gearbox - the gear lever hole needs to be moved.

    And needs the existing gearbox mounts to be moved

    Re: Escort Mk1

    Sourced a new impeller from IK engineering, for the water pump, so its turns in the opposite direction.



    Because the waterpump will turn in opposite direction, normally it uses a smooth fan belt pulley - but as its using the opposite side of the fan belt I need to use a ribbed pulley.

    Ordered from a lad on this forum.

    I've gone for an OMEX fuel injection setup with the OMEX 600 ECU to control the VVT.
