  12. the more parts the better
  13. Bolts arrived so the rad and plastics are all together now http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/74170E5A-7A5F-4D2D-9A4A-16B16CD042CB_zpsnkughlli.jpg

  15. That's s good answer similar to the one I give now Second single wiper arrived could open a shop with all the parts in this room http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/48A3B1A5-ADD7-442B-BE95-A223CC773EE4_zpsgxshyawg.jpg
  16. got some small stainless caphead bolts washers and nuts on way to fix the plastics to the rad i know they were originaly rivited but i think it will look much better and more functional if i ever need to take them off i get no end of messages from people asking why im bothering to do all this to a 5 door
  17. bought this the other day .. another single wiper conversion .. bought mainly for the scuttle panel which has had the drivers side wiper hole (which goes unused after the conversion) smoothed and looks a cracking job and cant hurt to have a spare single wiper conversion i suppose .. the collection of parts is evergrowing http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/10425040_1230079927018125_4252059028126788654_n_zpszkbru2pc.jpg
  18. finally managed to lay my hands on some plastic ducts for the AC Condenser and rubber feet for the coolant rad so my new complete rad set-up is finished http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/265B7CD1-4489-4E2F-9EB3-1E44DF7DAC94_zps8goprrla.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/77E2C920-5702-49D2-AD7B-056F5A5005CB_zpsugeswntm.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/8DBB92ED-2DA1-4BD7-A50C-64AE5340913E_zpslcy3fwhw.jpg
  19. Doing water pump cam belt and clutch while its sat on the ground .. In a bit loathed to mess around with the engine .. It's always been sweet as a nut .. Heard the big cams was a rumour and just moves the power band up the Rev range rather than delivering more power
  20. Trying to think of some but none come to mind
  21. engine nearly ready for a damn good clean and a coat of paint .. going to shot blast the power steering pump and alternator/ac pump alloy brackets at work and the various gearbox bracers for some paint and powdercoat http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/12046914_1167339073278376_130591528671081007_n_zpsodzls43e.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/12049132_1167339079945042_2350035241480883249_n_zpsb2f1ichx.jpg http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/12039449_1167339109945039_3689053461560799936_n_zpsdaswwpwv.jpg
  22. Three reasons why I'm not .. One everyone does 3 doors the 5 doors may not command the same price but are defiantly fewer and far between like mk1's and mk2's you see a load of 3 doors at shows but very few 5 doors .. Two I personally don't like the 3 door something about the huge rear windows I prefer the shape of the two doors and the small quarter window I genuinely feel the 5 door is a better looking car .. Three I have a sentimental attachment to this car just buying a 3 door because it's the popular shape I wouldn't have the drive to do it because I wouldn't care about the car the same way
  23. 3 years ago today i bought the old girl .. found a picture from th night i bought it http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/escort/fes_zpswvutdh0d.jpg
  24. http://i1228.photobucket.com/albums/ee454/Superdream84/11999047_1158500467495570_2664751143193223060_n_zps4wxfwps5.jpg another sad looking picture
