After buying this shell when I was 17, it will now finally be getting some time and love lavished on it now that my Cossie (New thread soon) is all but done . This car is/was an 1100L which I bought as a bare shell whilst I was at college years ago and although very little has been done since and after nearly letting it go a couple of times during this period I've always wanted one and knew if I sold it I wouldn't get another.
After owning it for a year or so it had some work done on it to an awful standard by supposed professionals. I lost the love for it after that for a time but then started to have a go myself with some fairly good, but albeit time consuming, results...all was going well. Then the Cossie came along.
Fast forward 2.5 years and the Cos passed its MOT yesterday So today Jules and I Trekked off down to Weston Super Mare today to visit James at South West Resto's with the Escort in tow.
Jules took some before photos on his phone and will put them up shortly, hopefully then followed by James progress.
The plan is re-hungfront end, full strut tops, front mex arches welding on, cage mounts, heel plate, front O/S floor and some other little jobs which will come together over the next few weeks.
The plan is to get it back, dry build the important parts, paint it diamond white along side my brothers Mk2 (POJ) and build it into a nice usable 1600 x/flow powered escort with a few nice little bits but basically just nice and simple.Hopefully the plan doesn't deviate too much from this as time goes by.
Thoroughly look forward to seeing it all come together.
