    So I made a list and bought all the front end stuff for the escort today. Gaz adjustable coilover struts, adjustable tca's, eccentric top mounts, 4 pot willwood brake kit, a quick rack and ends, poly bushes for everything and a bias pedal box. That lightened the old wallet

    The body panels on the escort look pretty straight , and the chrome seems ok too . The patina suits it . Are you going to do much with the motor / trans ?
    Would be a fun daily as is . Not jealous at all

    as far as the outside bodywork goes it's getting the arches from mexico wings grafted on and any rust through cut out and new steel welded in. some sympathetic paint touchins to match as best as i can then mop the whole car and wax it. any surface rust, body 'blemishes' etc will stay. it's getting a full length roof rack as where it had one before it marked the roof. i've bought the 8 suckers and the 4 clamps i need, just got to knock up the rack. mechanically it's all change. 2.0 pinto, 5 speed box, gaz coilovers, wilwood brakes, adjustable tca's, eccentric top mounts, bias pedal box, one peice prop, lsd, rear discs, polybushes throughout, 7x13 revolite wheels etc. so old on top, new underneath. should make a nice car.

    That was a saloon then judging by the shape of the n/s rear side window.

    It certainly was ! Well spotted
    I tried to find a " simple black & white " one for my manipulation ( I do get a tad bored "resting my poorly leg " LOL ) ,
    but I guess there's not too much call for colouring in pictures of estates ....
    Well ... saying that there are these ones


    An Opel Astra ...?? WHY ?

    This Stude looks rather nice I think
    I have hundreds of "line drawings" to print off and do designs on - like flames and "racing decals" etc .
    I only use the simple windows paint , and some of the jpg / gif / bitmap ones are ...rather laborious to block fill (with the little bucket icon) due to the 500...(!) shades of grey. )

    forgot i also ordered an auto (larger) trans tunnel for the escort too. stops the 5 speed box hanging down so far and catching when it's stupid low.
