    Come over and give me a hand, should have it done in 2 weeks then!!

    Not far away, just need to get motivated again. Had a lot on my plate what with the Escort's gearbox and clutch going "west". nearly losing my job and a few other personal problems which are all sorted now.

    Well, it's finally gone. It's been a long time and thought it was best all round. A bit heart breaking seeing her go, but needs must. Will miss her dearly.


    Nope, she's NOT sold, but off to be resprayed and engine finished



    Bit nerve racking as she was put onto the pick-up, but she'll be well looked after in her new "home" until she's finished. The next time I'll be driving her back home all new and shiny!

    Picky....................and all that's being sorted when it's in the spray shop!

    And the front windscreen, which took me hours to remove and fit, is also coming out so it can have a proper spray job!



    It will all be, as Madonna would say, "shiny and new" and ready for the road!!

    The guy who's doing it has had it this whole time and say's he's done most of it but hasn't shown my dad or shown him any pictures.

    So he isn't very happy.

    Re: Crystal Blue make-over

    Now Now lads, let's not be like that. The resto wasn't down to me, the guy who had it to do the paintwork totally fooked the job up and the only reason I got the car back was that I threatened him with Pig..................I mean a solicitor!

    Anyway, the car's coming along fine and looks way better in the flesh than on any pic. Really chuffed with the work that has gone into it and to say the bodyshop has done magic is an understatement.

    Just know at the end of the day she's getting sold and it's a bit of a sad thing for me, but hopefully she'll go to a good home and all the work will have been done.
