  6. 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

  8. 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"

  9. 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... url="http://s27.photobucket.com/user/marshy61278/media/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zps99a77b4d.jpg.html"]http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c151/marshy61278/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zps99a77b4d.jpg[/url] http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c151/marshy61278/Mobile%20Uploads/image_zpsa6980c61.jpg An o6 plate st3 84k 2 previous owners 12 mths mot.. I collect next week and can't wait!!

  10. 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.. http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q115/stuey6/capri%20resto/0ac5bb19b52130c558a1245322e53aaf.jpg http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q115/stuey6/capri%20resto/3c4076092012f8180badabf09f521e4b.jpg Outer sills on, one side fitted well the other is about 15mm longer that it should be. 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.

  16. Some of you might remember, some of you not. Used to post on here a bit, but seems very quiet these days. Guess Escorts aren't very popular anymore. Rather worryingly, I still have three! A '94 Equipe, a '91 RS2000 stage rally car, and a '96 RS2000 F2 rally car. I've also got a Clio 172 Cup and a Golf R which is my daily. Five cars is probably too many but you only live once...

  18. Things are good, buddy, how's yourself? I can't see myself in an Escort again, even a Cosworth if I could somehow afford one. I think I've come to terms with the fact that I don't have the time, desire or most importantly the skill to do anything other than waste money on old or project cars. This is me for now: http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p89/adolftitler/IMG-20150314-WA0006.jpeg​

  19. Hi all. Evening Guys. Just thought I would pop in again and say hello. Not been on here fir a long long time as I went to the VW scene. Anyway after landing a job where I get a choice of over 100 different cars to use and go home in I decided to sell the current ride that was an Audi A4 TFSI Quattro. Plans were to leave the money from the sale of the Audi in the bank and not touch it but the urge for something to spend it on soon crept in so tonight I went and bought a Series 2 Escort RS Turbo that I can play with and throw a small fortune into.

  23. It was inevitable. The Mk5/6 Escort was never going to be a classic so over time it was always going to die out. Most cars have about a 15 year lifespan. Escort production ended around that time ago. Coincidence? I doubt it. Most of the newbie threads here now are about people trying to get old cheap escort van work horses fixed. That makes sense, people are much more likely to get their work van fixed than but a new one. Cars don't have the same dependency. I'm not convinced by the whole growing up comments. Sure some people will leave because their priorities change, but 'addicts' will always come back for their fix, as long as there's a fix available. Not much of a fix here now, though. I met one of my best mates on Evo, and another good friend I keep in touch with. In fact we're planning on building a Ford based drag car in the next year or so. Not an Escort though! I've not owned a Ford since 2006, but still have an interest. Probably something to do with working at the blue oval from 2008-2014. May go back one day. And even with buying a new house and a demanding job, I still check the site every now and again.

  24. In all seriousness now though this site has gotten so quiet that [if it were me funding it] I'd shut the server down. It's a shame and im not sure if it can be saved or not, or if many people would even care. The market for the mk5-6 escorts (bar maybe cossies) has all but died and i wont be saddened by it. When the MMB was busy with posts about off topic things I loved coming in here for the chat, and being educated by Stu on all things tuning, entertained by the banter from people like Shaw and Sid, and interested in some gorgeous builds like MarkyMarks which was probably my fave mk6 of all time. Could some effort be put into the evo facebook page so we could have some banter posts on there just to keep up? Cos im gonna miss you guys but i CBA logging in here to check that there may [likely not] be some banter or chat going on. However I do spend time on facebook commenting on posts in groups relating to things i have interests in so if Evo's page got busy......... Failing that. May as well say goodbye all

  25. Cheers all. Well, I have a handbrake handle and gear knob to fit along with a new part for the back of the steering wheel ( has the wire that connects the airbag) to fit then interior is all in, done and finished bar some more cleaning. I'm hopefully gonna get my extended wheel studs/coilovers fitted when it goes in for MOT. And just before that I'll have my tyres fitted so new wheel can go straight on at MOT time. Just before that though I need to re wire my headlights. The morettes have a plug, that the plug on my loom doesnt fit. I have new plugs that will fit but just need to clip the wires into the plug in the right place to get the headlights up and running. Its gonna all come together REALLY quick when I book the MOT. It needs a few touch ups body work wise and the front bumper building up again, but will get the major things/mot done 1st and do the bumper at my own leisure. Really nothing much happened of late as tbh.....its cold outside and I have NO motivation to do ANYTHING in that weather. As soon as it warms up I'll be straight on it!

  37. 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 - http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140706_193132.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140706_193120.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140706_193140.jpg I then fitted full leather seats http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140725_164558.jpg Then came the Evotech front bumper - http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140725_164606.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140726_152754.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140726_154000.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140726_164408.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140726_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) http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140731_202637.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140801_095535.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140801_142411.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140801_150323.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140801_173158.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140804_170402.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140804_171120.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140805_140001.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/20140805_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 http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/van-white-roof.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/Van-Black-Roof.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/van-with-flags.jpg http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i218/demondriver12345/van-with-flags-and-black-ro.jpg Any opinions or ideas up to now welcome

  38. Yeah, we have a new rad for the job, the old one is just for the trial fitment. Cheers! I do have a bad memory but I hadn't forgotten about you! Cheers! Thanks, I should maybe have built 2 engines, one to use and one for show! I've never seen any close up detail as to how anyone else has there water pipes connected to the turbo so I pretty much made this up as I went along. To join onto the existing system I needed to cut hoses and fit a metal sleeve in place with a spigot. In true scrapyard challenge style I found what I needed in stock already, once from an MG ZR, the other from a Transit Connect - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01629.jpg The required sections were cut from each pipe - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01630.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01631.jpg Painted up and ready to fit - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01632.jpg First one fitted into the Radiator hose, again I also found a section of suitable hose to fit onto the spigot which will eventually fit onto the banjo fitting on the turbo - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01633.jpg Hose held roughly in the place it will sit when connected to the banjo bolt - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01634.jpg Next one fitted, also with a suiatble section of hose from a scrap car - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01635.jpg Hoses clipped together to hold them in place - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01636.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01637.jpg Hose held roughly in place where it will join the banjo bolt - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01638.jpg You can see roughly how it's going to work, I was quite happy at this point as I'd been able to sort out the water pipes just by using parts we had here and adapting them instead of buying new when there was no need to do so - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01639.jpg Trial fit with the radiator again, just to see how it looks - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01640.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01641.jpg Top hose from Thermostat Housing fitted and bracketed to the block to keep it clear of the throttle cable - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01642.jpg And that's all the water pipes sorted apart from the banjo bolts on the turbo - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01643.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01644.jpg Intercooler and Pipes as supplied with the Turbo engine, these were originally fitted to the car that the donor Turbo Engine was removed from, they might not be the prettiest but if they'll do the job then I'll tidy them up and we'll use them - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01645.jpg Lower Pipe fitted - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01646.jpg Upper pipe fitted to Throttle Body - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01647.jpg And fitted to Intercooler - http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01648.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01649.jpg http://blackengineering.co.uk/images/Doctor-Evil-RS2000-Turbo-Engine-Rebuild/01650.jpg Now that I know it all connects up as it should I'll be able to clean up and paint some of the metal pipework etc so that it's all ready to fit when the engine is in the car.

  44. i reckon that they will be just a typical setup where they won't last long at all, pretty much a cheap setup for show cars. you could buy them and test them and review how they are. my personal opinion is always stick to the main brands that are trusted and been developed over years and years!
