    Re: Portuguese fellow - Escort MK2

    Hello friends,

    Been off for some years and never got round to update this...so now that it's the Escort turn (Bimmer is done for now), here goes a quick brief.

    It was about 6 years ago that i got this beauty. It belongged to the grand father of a friend of mine and instead ending in the scrapyard...i saved it for a long term project.
    How it began

    Name:  002.jpg Views: 54 Size:  25.7 KB

    Name:  003.jpg Views: 47 Size:  32.6 KB

    Name:  004.jpg Views: 42 Size:  38.5 KB

    Name:  005.jpg Views: 45 Size:  69.4 KB

    Then life took me to UK for a 2 year experience where I've lived and worked in the North London area. I manage to get some parts for the Escort and some time later...the first track experience with the Laser wheels already but everything else full stock.

    A couple years later, back to Portugal for good, and the meeting with the 2 brothers

    Name:  009.jpg Views: 41 Size:  114.1 KB

    Then it got some 7J "minilite" wheels and off to some Ford meetings.

    Name:  008.jpg Views: 43 Size:  62.9 KB

    Now, the e30 is finnished...it's time to restore the Escort.
    At the moment i'm disassembling it slowly...

    Name:  010.jpg Views: 47 Size:  57.1 KB

    and...for the great reveal...I'm using as guidance, a car that is here in this forum.

    I loved it from the first time I've seen it.
    Since it's a more door, I don't want any "sporty" rally looks. I prefer a clean sleeper when it's finnished

    Here it is.

    I hope the owner can see this and eventually give some help

    All set for the body and paint to be done early March.
    Hope to get some tips from the experts here.

    Regards
