Well, here he is.... now in Manchester and i have plans to get him ready for the shows this year although i wont be rushing too much as i want it to be perfect, things i need to do are quite a few touch ups (very minor though), sort out the engine which im being told could be a few things either it has completely gone gone but when i described what chap said to a few different people they said could of been the turbo which has blown, head gasket, maybe wrong but going to do a few checks anyway... if it has definatly gone i will be looking for a donor car (1.8 TD mk5b) to replace all parts needed, until i decide later on in the year on the type of petrol conversion i can afford. also, window tints all round, replace all interior seats, carpet etc will be replacing the wheels in about 2 months to white or grey compomotive 17's. fix front bumper where there is a small crack, fit sparco steering wheel, cobra seats, dash, few gadgets for the dash, give it a really good polish and clean and like i say hopefully be ready for the shows this year but ill just have to see how i get on. anyway couldnt resist a drive shot as it got here this morning! you know what it looks like but oh well!

It looks 3 different shades of blue in the 1st picture, or is that just the picture and not the actual car itself?

 

i think it depends on where the light hits it :P cool init!

 

From that first pic it isnt cool no, it looks like the 2 doors and rear wing were painted in 3 different shades of blue.... hopefully it doesnt look like that in the flesh

wudnt either bother chuckin money at the diesel lump, thats my opinion, assuming his got another car to run around in, id save to drop a diff lump init

 

 

i hear... once i turn to a diesel i wont turn back! so i would love to see what the fuss is about. the thing is with the petrol conversion... i could be loking at SERIOUS cash as i dont just want to throw a 1.8/2L in... i would want atleast an RS2000 engine in bloo, it would only be fair to it... and i think you can all imagine what that is going to consist of, as to why i said later on in the year, need to save up. just to get it going for now so its not just sat there is why i want to get the diesel running.

people who rave about TD's are driving mondern common rail high pressure things with proper engine management - which are really good engines geneerally

the rattly old 1.8 escort td is derived from the frankly useless 1.6 diesel ford used in the 80s
