Well as it’s a new start of good year for me I thought it was bout time to spend some money on the escort. I’ve owned the car since 2006 and tried to keep it in good nick and make it stand out and make it my own with shuttle mods but as its 14 years old it’s starting to show its age in the body work with rust appearing in the normal places and the pant fading in places were its has a crap blow in some time of its life. So I got it into my mate’s body shop to be fully striped down and all sorted and then new paint job in the same colour.

Well i started all the work monday and started off buy finishing taken the wing mirrors, door handles, locks, and door cards off once I got there. Tomoz I will strip out the windows bumpers and lights then start we can make a start on the rubbing down.

Hear are some pics of my work so far.....
