    The cig lighter is for the mobile phone charger/laptop charger.

    I cannot reach the switches when i'm buckled in either... But it looks good ... hahah.

    I will be putting another switch panel next to the handbrake with start button and ignition switch and other few necessities.

    Gauges are locally sourced. Not expensive ones, but have a classic look to them. I didn't want the new digital face gauges.

    maybe it's just the light or a bad pic but that welding on the cage bars doesn't look very nice. sorry if I'm mistaken. hope I am.

    I'm not a professional welder. Some places it looks good and other places it's a but messy. I know the welds have penetrated, they are just a little big in places.

    Re: Mk1 Escort Van V Skyline V Supra

    The front arches have been cut off because they weren't right. When we mocked it up for the arches, the brake calipers weren't fitted and when they were fitted the wheel needed a spacer to clear the caliper, so that meant the arches weren't wide enough. So they have been cut off for another extension.



    Bought and fitted some mirrors, they need a scuffing in the dirt to make them match the paint on the van





    Rolling, rolling, rolling.... Soon

    Van Dango

    The front isn't wider, cos the front wheels are a different offset to the rears... Would need to add spacers to widen the rear, and the body shop guy would have a heart attack

    Arches done and air feed pipes moved slightly so they make the most of the spoiler. 4 more holes put into the front panel to help with cooling. Mat Black has paid us a visit too

    Re: Mk1 Escort Van V Skyline V Supra

    The first drive out today. I took it for a spin to the petrol station. We got there and back ok as it's only a few 100 meters away, but there is a problem with the engine, it keeps bogging down when you apply the throttle, which i think might be fueling. I'm fitting a FRP tomorrow to see what the fueling is like.
    Also a problem with the back suspension. I think when i bought the secondhand coilovers, they had been taken to bits and not put back together properly, so i'll be taking those off to have a look tomorrow also.
    Wish me luck.....

    Got a cool stance that's for sure.

    Swap the mirrors out for some manta 400 style ones you sell. Those things are a bit too motorbike style imo

    I guess that's a bit of an understatement! My mkiv Supra was fast even just standard (with a huge spread of torque right across the rev range), I can only guess what the Escort is like. Like strapping a go-kart to a rocket, I'd imagine

    Love this thread, and can't wait for the video!!

    One question though, and I know it's not the final finish, but what is the dimply effect on all the bodywork, almost looks like its papermache! Is it just the high build filler?

    There is no filler in the car at all... The 'dimply effect' is the metal panels having being beaten with a hammer

    Small video of a walk around... A few things still to do before it's 'drifting' but it drives ok now, we did 25kms in it today
