Bit of a project! Needs a little tlc but is a great runner and interior is amazing! Engine is chipped and running a healthy 170bhp

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..






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




Wing rails on:




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






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




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.






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...
An o6 plate st3 84k 2 previous owners 12 mths mot.. I collect next week and can't wait!!

#1532435 dead locking

Posted by shawdreamer on 15 December 2014 - 07:08 PM

iirc (its been a few years now)


the absolute only difference between a door with deadlocking and one without on a escort all boiled down the the actually latch mechanism, some had the deadlocking feature built in while others didnt.


again irrc the door lock barrels were the same, the link rods were all the same and the way the rods connected to the latch were the same.


as for changing wiring and control module? well afaik the deadlocking feature is purely a mechanical feature and all contained within the latch unit itself.


so in basic terms, aslong as youve got door latches you know came off a car with deadlocking you can swap your own current latches out for them a tada you have deadlocking (its really that simple and easy to do too)

Haven't bought anything for a while. Don't have the money for tyres for my alloys and have been investing money back into business.

Replaced window motor and gave her a service last weekend so she's happy.

But I have just finished washing her! Shiny shiny.

So can normal users (I.E. me) no longer see for sale topics?




Club Members have priority of for sale ads, this advert will unlock on 18 April 2014 - 12:56 PM.


At the moment, we're trialing this, Ads are locked for users/guests for the first 24 hours. This is to let Club Members have first dibs on anything advertised. It's something that's used on a few other sites (although they have ads locked for 5 days) and it works rather well.
