Well Here It Is


Recommended Posts

Well i paid £600 for her a month ago.

She had 68,000 on the clock with a new MoT.

The mileage is original as per paperwork.

Usual Escort rust and she reeves a little when ideal (but im told easy and cheap fix by mechanic friend)


Things Done In Past Month



-Pinned Striped Rear Lights

-Put Tinted Side Repeaters On

-Put New Number Plates On

-Touched Up Scratches

-Added Mud Flaps

-Added Chicane Badge



-Put Leather Seats and Door Cards In

-Put Leather Gear Knob In

-Put Proper Ford Mats In

-Put Proper Ford CD Player In


To Be Done

-Black Angel Eye Head Lights (Just Brought)

-Laguna Vented Splitter (Needed)

-Push Dent Out on Passenger Door

-Either Spray Alloys Black or Buy New Ones (Undecided)

-Tint Windows Very Lightly (Undecided)


She also had a full service and £250 worth of after work.

Also a spare new key cut and the door locks changed.


I look back and realise I have spent silly money on her.

And I think to myself that I could have brought a slightly better car with the money I have spent on her.

And then I realise, it’s a Ford Escort thing – and I remember why I do it.

And i end up back on Evo weighing up what to do next.


I would just like to thank Evo for being patient with me.

I came on here in a flap, with a car that i was not sure i wanted, and with no knowledge of escorts or ford.

You have all been great and i have met some real nice people on here already.



What do you all think so far?

not bad, look clean and tidy


not sure if you will get a splitter on the non fogged bumper as there is no lip on the bottom of it

i had a splitter on my non fogged bumper :P


car looks tidy, reminds me of mine before the mini mod bug kicked in :pancake:


oh my bad, gonzo0s had no lip on his one to fit the splitter on, another daft ford thing i guess :(

I like being in the company who have done exactly what we have done.


And do you know what, i get a weird satisfaction from turning something that could have been someone's old-banger/run around to a nice presentable car that can be looked after and enjoyed longer.


Okay a bit too much waffling there lol


You know what im getting at.

Will have some updates shortly.

I had a little accident so had to replace the rear bumper and redo the rear lights.


So in the process I did a better job on the pin-stripes and also replaced the dented door with a whole new one.


Also have a laguna sunglasses holder in there now, putting a second on the passenger side soon.

As well as colour coded wing mirrors and a leather steering wheel to go on when they arrive.


Only thing left to do is get some colour coded bump stripes and handles.
