Hey Pete. Good to see the cars progression from start to now. Keep this page updated when u change stuff if u can mate. Its an all round good car this and altho the front bumper is very "rally" it does suit the styling of ur car well. U ever gonna 2.0 urs?

I think this is the best looking escort ive seen for ages, really like the lights and the grill looks like a cosworth replica with exception of a few things. Tidy paintjob from what i can see, and with rattle cans, must have been quite costly. Rattle cans cost loads in comparison to a compressor etc. Are the seats out of rs turbo or capri etc look nice. Well done

nice, radiant red is a bugger of a colour to get a decent match, but from the pics its looks fine. i'm not too with the bonnet vent either. 2.0l after show season, bring it on!
