It's got a complete rear axle on it too including diff, shafts, brakes, suspension etc. and I'm gonna use the rear chassis sections to manufacture the new ones( will be some sort of sierra escort cross) Is there a guide? Have searched an searched but have as yet found nothing to help me through it Finished stripping the seam sealer from the edges and started to centre punch the spots for drilling. 2moro will be a boring day haha http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31185.jpg

  7. Cossy splitter and sticks mate
  8. Yes the exhaust was loud, it annoyed the neighbours, my mrs knew I was home roughly half a mile before I got there lol but it did sound awesome!! Alas it has now been sold along with most of the rest of the car. Concentrating on the shell, RWD setup and engine. Haven't got space to store it for months (maybe years haha) so it's either sold or thrown
  9. Hello all. I've returned with a new project. Her name is Rita. This is her the day she arrived http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31109.jpg Then I made a few little changes... Twin exit xost http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31110.jpg Angel eyes and colour coded debadged ghia grill with black mesh http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31111.jpg RS7's and 30mm drop http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31112.jpg 300 front brakes http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31113.jpg Then the tax ran out so I decided to SORN her, fitted my half finished mods and rolled her into the garage to start the epic build http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31114.jpg Plans are these: 1. RWD conversion 2. 2.0 Zetec turbo There are of course more plans but for now these are the important ones. So I started to remove the floor and strip to a bare shell. This is her current state. http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31115.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31116.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31117.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31118.jpg I also bought this XR4x4 as a donor for the RWD conversion. http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/31119.jpg It will arrive on June 3rd and the fun can begin

  21. so i bought my mrs this from work. came in as a trade in, used to belong to our master tech so sorta got a bit of info about it. good first car for her. clean, looked after, few bits on bodywork and needs a little for MOT but sound car. turned her into an escort fan (at least she stopped moaning at me about mine ) she may even be joining evo!! "i want white wheels" so i gave em a quick sand, painted em and put 4 spanking tyres on. (borrowed the bumper while mine is in bodyshop) http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27715.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27716.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27717.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27718.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27719.jpg http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27720.jpg then my mate told me these were for sale 7x17 dezent motion 2 (brand new in boxes with wheel nuts and lockers) for £180!! bargain http://www.evo-host.co.uk/getimg/27721.jpg suppose it was my own fault, should never have showed her the picture lol....so i bought em (she paid in kind tho ) all was going well till i met wayne lol. took a trip to his house for my mondy calipers and she fell in love with the white ghia x on his drive. admittedly i fell for his rs 7's (which i went back for next day lol). so i agreed.....again.... "and i want those wheels painting black" so 2 moro wayne is dropping off the white one and taking the blue one as part ex! and she's already given me a list of what she wants doing!! WOMEN ARE NEVER HAPPY!!!
