Mk1 Escort Restoration
Posted 15 October 2011 - 03:41 PM
It's originaly a 1300GL(?), but it's currently got a 1600 X-flow in it.
We'll be turning it into a 1600GT, with a PMC built 1600 X-Flow, running 38mm CV Bike carbs & distributor-less ignition.
Guards will be new repo. 1600GT items, & new front headlight/beaver panel.
We are now well into stripping the shell & the guards have already been picked off (Escort guards are spot welded on, FFS!).
Once the front panel is off, it'll be fitted up to the rotisary & be sent off for blasting.
Plemum chamber box removed:

Front panel removed:
And a big moment today as Alex & I got the mounts finished, and we got the shell mounted up on the rotisserie!
And before anyone ask's - yes there are modified engine stands.
Alex looking very smug with the day's efforts:
The next job is removing the heavy sound deadner from the underside of the shell, before it goes off for media blasting in a couple of weeks.
