Escort 1.3 pop

Had to drive down south to find this

Lights

Me and Graham removing the lights

Storage

The boot makes cheap storage space until you get rid of the donor

Preparation

Getting the escort ready for engine removal

The easy route

We cut the front from the donor to help ease the removal of the Engine

Missing

One engine missing, no reward if found

Engine

Fords 1.3 Crossflow Engine (well the block anyway)

Cut Up

We decided to cut up the donor and take it to the local Scrap Merchants

Clean up

The disks are new an the calipers have been rebuilt and painted

Shiny

Amazing what a grinder with a steel brush wheel attachment

It's started

A bit late in the chassis build stage for the 1st photo but I'd only just bought the camera

Chassis

I know it's a bit dark but it didn't look that dark at the time

Chassis

Same sorta thing, different angle

Cramped

We borrowed a friends garage to build in as we don't have one of our own, we're grateful even if it is a little 'busy'

Close up

Not bad considering I've not welded before!
