Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

could also have cut corners on the machining, then the engine might have suffered a mechanical failure during the standing mile runs when I was using lots of nitrous, 2 x 10lb bottles only lasted 90 secs, enough for 3 each way runs, but instead I have a very reliable tuned engine with excellent longevity (60K+ miles) that is still much quicker than others. Over-engineering is not crime, why do I run fully-spherical bearing suspension? because I like my car to handle in a predictable manner and also because i can.

Nice piece of engineering my friend!! Well thought out..designed for a purpose. Bit of a Wolf in sheeps clothing, hidden away in a humble escort shell!! Nice work, sounds like your the type of Guy, that needs a project on the go, mind that never rests, always thinking, creating, designing, adjusting, tweaking & modifying!! Well thats what mines like anyway!! What are the seats that are in the picture? Are they a fibreglass shell?  Any MOT or Insurance issues with them? I have full leather ones in my van & they weigh a ton!! regards Dyl

Seats in the Photos are just Cobra Sidewinders on tailored sub-frames, they adjust/recline/tip forward just like the ford originals, so no MOT issues, rear seats and seatbelts are removed anyways. steel framed with ABS back-shell, on trackdays, I remove the Sidewinders and replace the Driver's seat with a Cobra Imola Pro-Fit Carbon Seat on custom modified Cobra side mounts, Luke Pro 4 Point (75mm/75mm) Saloon Harness Belts.

Hey, thanks for getting back to me. Looks like the kind of ones that would suit my van & allow access to jack etc with just flipping forward with a bit of support too when chucking the van round the bends!
