Excuse the picture :drool: That was taken at The Rally GB, doesnt always look that cool :P

 

Ordered my Ford Strut Brace Today, along with my new Suspension. Gone for the -40mm G-Max kit, used to run a set of it on my Valver and thought it was a really good setup for the money. Also purchased a Rage Backbox, the 5x3" Oval Flavour. The Missus has one on her car and it sounds decent, not too loud but you know its there.

 

The Escorts almost finished now. Just needs to have the bumper repaired after the old B*stard crashed into me, and get the whole car resprayed again in State Blue f.o.c as the original job wasn't done to my high standards. That and he forgot to spray the mirrors :curse:

 

Is it worth putting RS Turbo Recaro's in there? The standard Seats are a bit boring. :(

 

Anything else you think I should do to it. I dont want it to be a show car or anything like that, just want it to be a cool runaround. I have a fairly decent system in there, not too loud but it sounds fantastic, so thats another item off the checklist. Any Ideas?

That was a waste of money.

 

Someone pulled out on me early this morning, I swerved to avoid them only to find a parked car in the turn left lane :censored:

 

They stopped for about 2 seconds after I hit the car, and then drove off. I didnt get their numberplate and its left me with a smashed up Escort, and an insurance claim :(

The mate who owes me the respray is fixing it for £600 and giving it the respray at the same time. Which is a result I think. Needs New Bonnet, Bumper, Radiator, Passenger side Wing, Headlights, Grill. New Front Panel. :(

 

He reckons he can fix the Bumper. It didnt come off too bad. The Fog lights didnt break :thumb:

 

It was dark so not 100% on the colour but I think It was a snow covered Silver Ford Galaxy. They sped off down the same road I drive to work, so if I see them, hell WILL break loose.

 

The car should fingers crossed be back on Tuesday, the guy I use is an awesome sprayer and does superb bodywork repairs. He repaired my Track car after someone hit me up the ass :( Only reason the 1st respray wasn't perfect on the Escort was because he was busy and passed the Job over to a friend.

 

You never know, I might be able to get it to a meet sometime soon :thumb:
