Someone invite stevemo back to show us his latest creation, I bet what ever forum he's now using is thriving :roll:


He was on talkford......then he painted his mondeo yellow and got ripped to pieces so he left

Then he appeared on fordoc. Because no one is allowed to voice their opinion on that forum unless its a nice one. But randomly stopped

Theeeeeeen he had his own forum called mondeoworld. But it had like 4 members including myself. He banned me because he knew i came from evo. And then the forum closed down so bugger knows where he is lol

Posted by shawdreamer on 15 December 2014 - 06:59 PM

I have a personal dislike of social media so i dont buy i to facebook and that at all.

 

It aint just you.

 

I have never liked the whole facebook/twitter shite and personally never even consider using them after looking into them once.

 

"social networking" that does nothing but encourage the exact opposite.... I cant be the only one that strikes as bizarrely hypocritical?

 

I prefer a forum based setup simply because it creates a environment for a more easy paced discussion where someone can consider and take their time wording their thoughts and limits the amount of foaming mouth retards that think they have to answer every comment as fast as possible regardless of what the response might be.

 

to ALL you facebook fanboys.......a small titbit of friendly advice.

 

get a girl

have sex

go the pub

tadaaaaaa..... now your really "socializing" :thumb:

ok ok!

 

So got a piece for the scuttle and got that welded in, although in true style heres the before pic but didn't take an after..

3c4076092012f8180badabf09f521e4b.jpg

 

Outer sills on, one side fitted well the other is about 15mm longer that it should be.

 

[img]7878ecc754dffeaea61e173423a6334b.jpg[img]

 

Wing rails on:

 

[img]d1da65dad029061065714910c3e931d4.jpg[/img]

 

Strut top reinforcements on, again what a crap fit these are, had to cut them in multiple places to try and get them to shape to the inner wing.

Underside finished and cleaned

Some Zinc primer

[img]70f398e8b99b64a84dbee8420cdad004.jpg[/img]

 

Final coat of rubberised paint stuff, can't remember the name, bloody expensive:

 

[img]9e3b1eb555a9680475829af4c8d51e0e.jpg[/img]

 

Plan was to get the car back to a rolling shell before the birth of my first child, but the wee devil arrived 7 weeks early and dashed that plan.  I can now see why you hear of people starting projects and not getting back to them for about 20years!  Hoping this won't be one of them.

 

So since her birth I've got it back as a rolling shell, polybushes of course

Front brake upgrade mock up.  Going for mk1/2 mondeo calipers with brackets knows as the GTR280 kit.  Hubs were machined done to accept the discs on the front of the hubs rather than bolt to rear as standard setup would be.

 

[img]53e673618f95c9138c20f4d6e4ecb855.jpg[/img]

 

[img]fe8c7a1efd91bebb53ffadda618203c0.jpg[/img]

 

And that's you all pretty much up to date. I'm in the process of refurbishing the front calipers now, they are stripped and painted, just need to put them back together.  I've also cut out the standard radiators mounts and doing some repairs where they were removed.  I need to put in a bigger radiator so one of the next steps is to get one that fits and make up some brackets for it.  Undecided if I'm going for a custom alloy job or a sierra option.

#1532069 Hey guys my new car..

Posted by marshy on 26 October 2014 - 09:49 AM

What's up Evo? I know I haven't been round much lately, I've had a lot on my plate.. But just thought I'd update the world of Evo what's going on..
Firstly I no longer own an escort.. :(
The Rs has had a fair bit of cash out of me over the past few months.. And still kept throwing problems at me so after a feul pump failure while taking my son to a football course.. Enough was enough.
So the escorts gone.. It's replacement however is this...

#1534123 Hi - info needed on value

Posted by sidrick on 05 January 2016 - 04:09 AM

1) Not as much as you'll value it. At the end of the day it's a rusty 16 year old Escort, and I mean that with the least possible offence. £500-700 with a years test?

 

2) List it here and (more so) other Ford enthusiast forums such as Passion Ford. If it's solid then someone might want to buy it to stick a bigger engine in it.

 

Sadly it won't be bought for a good home. It'll be bought as a cheap hack or a project.

#1531503 ASBO Van Build

Posted by demondriver on 21 August 2014 - 02:41 PM

Hi All,

 

Im back into an escort but this time in the form of a Van. its currently a 1.8 D 55 just turned 85K with a good lot of history. Ive got a lot of plans for this inc a big boot build in the back but first on the agenda is the exterior.

This is how I got it -

20140706_193132.jpg

20140706_193120.jpg

20140706_193140.jpg

 

I then fitted full leather seats

20140725_164558.jpg

 

Then came the Evotech front bumper -

20140726_154000.jpg

20140726_164408.jpg

20140726_164402.jpg

And Fitted

Then I bought a set of BK Racing alloys to refurb and paint then fit. (not all the pics but don't want to put too many up of the process)

20140804_171120.jpg

20140805_140001.jpg

20140805_140222.jpg

 

 

I have a lot more planned for it I am currently half way thru extending the side skirts for it then im going to get an aftermarket rear bumper, cut it up and mould it to fit the van. Then its engine out full respray and then either a turbo diesel engine going in or a zetec I cant decide at the moment as I do between 800 and 1000 miles a week.

In the respray the van is going audi/pearl white and the plastics inc handles etc are going panther black to match the wheels. Someone said to me to do the roof black too but cant decide... heres a few different photoshops of different ideas

Posted by Dubs on 28 April 2014 - 08:54 AM

I really shouldn't read threads like this , gets me thinking silly thoughts... :D bet you're well chuffed with it

do it, mate :thumb:

 

been racking up the miles on the escort over the last couple of weeks and clocked up 992 miles in total. last weekend me and a mate went up to cambridge to visit a friend of ours and ended up going b road bashing for a few hours. we stopped for a few pics

 

cambridge1_zpsb121d75e.jpg

 

cambridge2_zps62bbb470.jpg

 

cambridge3_zpscf910808.jpg

 

then off to santa pod yesterday, it would have been rude not to put the car up the strip and see what it could do....

 

santapodque_zps250a9ebb.jpg

 

santapodstrip_zpsf7f48b67.jpg

 

this highlighted a few small issues with the car that need to be addressed, my best time was 15.06 which i was a little disappointed with but the surface was a bit greasy and was struggling with grip...

 

anyway the car survived the day and drove home faultlessly so over all very happy with it.
