    Update on the zakspeed escort

    Just got my new wheels compomotive 9x15 i know cx would have been so much better but they cost far to much
    I think i may have to shorten the axle a little
    I have done a few other bits but nothing major,i post some pics later

    Good stuff Al, I think those wheels look nice on any escort, they certainly look good on yellow ones, just look at Mr Pipes

    On that size wheel under those arches I had 225/50/15 yokos and they went in ok, but maybe you can get something with a slightly lower profile like a 40 or 45 which would help getting the car nice and low

    Looking superb Al............nice to see this one has gone to a good home and really starting to come together.

    You're not so far from me so when the motor's out and about I might bump into you

    Hi Al

    I'm just outside Lancaster but travel out to Barbon for the Hill Climbs etc when I can - so Devils Bridge is just down the road and then your just down the road from that really.

    Might need to pick your brain once I've sorted my Gearbox out............you've done plenty with the Old-Skool Fords so you'll have a lot stores up top

    What's your time scale to be on the road

    Many thanks. for the Headlight info..........

    I wouldn't worry about any paintwork for now Al, just get a decent motor in it and enjoy. If its as good as mine was with those arches you'll love it, plus you have the big advantage of the tubs which mean you can run it nice and low
