Hi from Grays.....

Hi everyone,

 

I'm Michael,38 year old from grays,essex.

I'm a self employed prop builder(star wars,doctor who stuff mainly)and my main hobbies include costuming for charity and fiberglassing myself to things(not on purpose)

 

I use to own loads of 'old' fords....capri's,cortina and mk3 escorts.Just managed to get another ford and it's a nice escort 1.6 flight.

 

Had a few major problems with it,front wheel was warped and hitting the caliper,oil sump plug not plugging the oil( :rolleyes: ) and knackered front brakes,

 

but all in all its a damn fine car that I feel I could drive anywhere.

I have a few bits I'd like to do to it,but it needs to be a practical car so no major lowering(well maybe a little ;) )

then alloys,sort out the wheelarch rust and fit a rev counter......

 

I've owned vauxhall vans for a number of years(work vans that is)so I'm looking forward to car ownership again.

 

Hopefully I can bring something here.

Thanks for the welcome guys :)

I don't have any pictures of my car,except for the one from the advert...

Only thing I've done so far(apart from the repair work)is add some walnut parts from a ghia,and fitted a ford cd player.

I will be upgrading the stereo soon though....I may be 38 but I do love bass(and not the fish type!!!)

NOOOOOO You didn't use the gastly wood stuff get rid of it! use black stuff, much better :)

 

p.s. after all these years of evo being up i'm surprised no one has used the username 'michael', mental!
