Nothing much to look at but progressing with removing rust in the engine bay




Gotta keep the dust off doesn't look as bad when the bodywork is clean

First update for a while looking at the date nearly a year various expenses like a new bathroom a new car needing a new boiler in the house drained the funds for the escort but im pushing now to get it done been working on the engine mostly recently


Finally got 2 spare minutes at work to finish the machining on the inlet adapter plate so i can fit the rs2000 inlet manifold to my zetec various holes needed drilling and tapping and a couple countersinking








it was at this point i test fitted the manifold and it fits perfectly so put the engine in a stand and began to clean it down with degreaser then the head with a stiff brush and some petrol it came up a treat




















Then it was paint time and its really starting to come together now a lot of parts soon destined for the powdercoaters
