  1. Looking good Marc. I was looking through pictures the other day of my old cars, still miss that one. You've done and amazing job so far. I was saying to Stu only the other day that I wish I'd turbocharged it, now it finally will be! Excellent!
  2. Is my old car still about? It's looking much nicer than when I sold it.
  3. Looking very nice mate!
  4. must go, open to offers otherwise it will be scrapped
  5. yeah should have mentioned that rayleigh is in essex
  6. im advertising this on behalf of my father, basically he was driving home from work the other night and the timing belt tensioner decided to emigrate to the pas pipe. we have thought about repairing the car as it is just far too good to scrap but my dad has wanted a mondeo for ages so now this is the perfect time for him to get one, also we just dont have the time at weekends to repair it. right, with the life story over, heres the pics and the spec of the car 16v 1600 serenade 5dr hatch aircon front leccy windows sunroof 104k miles 2 owners from new, my dad bought this from essex ford at rayleigh wier in 2002 oil change every year be either myself or my dad 2 years ago a new idle valve from ford new front brakes and front tyre last month new rear bumper last year, front bumper also damage free not your usual rust bucket, decent arches and sills one penny sized rust patch on offside arch but you really need to look for it (but just being honest) heated front screen other than the engine, everything works as it should, until last week it was a very nice example http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f197/ploppythejailer/DSC00250.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f197/ploppythejailer/DSC00252.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f197/ploppythejailer/DSC00251.jpg this would be the perfect project for anyone who wishes to put a 2l lump into, its even got all the parts to convert the engine to fit into the car as the old engine is still in there there isnt much t&t left, its more like weeks rather than months but im not sure how many (obviously) will need towing, i think it will be ok towing behind another car as we havnt declared as sorn yet as there is tax until the end of the month car did not have any issues last mot or any advisories, and not rot on any chassis rails etc car is located in rayleigh we're after £250 ono as it is in such good condition bodywork wise my mobile no is 07545947862, my dads is 07759583466 please get in touch to come and have a look at the car see what you think
  7. as the title suggests, please. as local to rayleigh in essex is preferable.
  8. shame about the engine, i suppose nothing lasts for ever, why not buy another 2 litre lump and rebuild it, not being funny but theyre all getting old now, would be nice to have a nice 'new' rebuilt lump in rather than a another 15 year engine in. then just swap them around when its built. would finish the car off.
  9. keep that as it is mate, looks spot on. i think i prefer the wheels in gtrey actually, nearly painted the originals grey but went white at the very last minute. glad to see shes still going.
  10. as the title suggests, genuine part from ford- no longer drive an escort so i no longer need this. £35 ono collection from rayleigh in essex. if interested, call me on 07545947862 cheers for looking.
