    Hi mate , thank you for the great comments .I sometimes give the bare metal a light spray with WD40 , but most of the bare metal on the truck has no real signs of rust.I am thinking about having the whole thing soda blasted before the body work starts .

    Hi Andy , yes I am using the 18g steel .Although it is alot harder to shape I prefer it , this extra thickness gives me a little more for hammering and filing and metal finishing .Cheers.

    Hi Craig , well spotted !!!!.You must be nearly as old as me if you remember my old Escort . It was around in the early 90's , it was all steel body mods .I was always being asked " where the body kit " came from.The other couple of classic comments were " I did'nt know a Capri bonnet fitted an Escort and "does it run " as there was no visable wiring .I had good fun with it at the time , it did many indoor and outdoor shows .The pics on the wall are the ones that Mike Key sent me after doing a photo shoot in the New Forest for a magazine feature .

    I only managed a few hours this weekend but got a bit done .I needed to get the new flange fabricated for the O/S of the grille shell to match the bonnet side . The pics show the gap left when the old flange was cut away .Then the repair piece was fabricated and welded in . Hopefully some more progress next week.

    I read the first part of this build on the All Metal Shaping forum and asked for an update on it as could see it was going to be a great project. I was fortunate that some one posted a link to this site for the rest of the build. Great to see how it has come along.

    Hi Craig, I remember that show ,it was very well organised and they looked after us very well . If I remember correctly the Escort was on the first floor so it had to go up in the lift .Good times .Cheers.
