    Escort mk2 road/stage rally car

    Just thought i'd put a few pics of the escort i'mbuilding at the moment.




    I've been building her for about 2 years, these pics were from last year. Will put more on to show how the build is getting on.

    More photos needed, what was the shell like when you started and would I be being a cheeky sod if I asked how much it's cost you to date. I'm thinking of building a car to the same spec for road rallying.

    Cheers

    7 inch revs look epic on an unarched car, what width axle are you running and what offset are the revs
