    Re: My Escort XE Project!

    The cylinder head is now at the chemical cleaning...
    against boring, some more from the interior design is done!
    I´d like to add some carbon to my interior! The lower section of the original Ghia door panels looks like a perfekt spot. And by the way it protects against scratches from my shoes when get out the the car.

    Step one: cutting an OLD door panel to check the design and get a proper mockup part!

    After cleaning the leather from the foam along the seam , the carbon plate fits perfecly under the leather!

    Stay tuned....

    They look better than the the water transfer version...

    Today i spend some time to relocate the fusebox to the A Pillar.
    I‘m very happy with the alloy box. The cables are now well protected.

    Re: My Escort XE Project!

    Some more updates... Good news from the engine maker! The new head passed the preasure test and is now hopefully without holes.
    Both front door trim panels are finished.

    The rear door panels came up with a lot of work. First step was to clean the original leather.

    the carbon plate need some fixing srews, so i tried to glue them on the carbon backside. It works.

    last step was the glueing with the UHU adhesive spray.

    The Idea to glue some chrome around the rear door panel armrest failed. The rubber didn´t stay in the form of the small corners. Maybe I need to cut something out of one part and polish it. It would be lovely to get the same design as on the front door panel.
