update:

well a fortnight ago me, joel and his old man fitted the 1.6 xflow engine, box, propshaft and exhaust in the escort.

joels fitted a few new parts to the engine such as water pump, plugs leads filters and new gaskets and seals etc and hes given everything a lick of paint to freshen it all up. so it just needs the wiring done now, and fuel tank and lines piped in and shouldnt be far off up and running then.

its also got a nice new sportex 4-2-1 manifold and single box exhaust (which should be nice and loud i think lol)

before this joels also fitted new discs on the front, new track rod ends balljoints etc and polybushes the front anti roll bar, fitted spotlamp brackets and a few other things. hes also changed the front quarter bumpers now from the fibreglass ones to the original metal ones instead.

more recently though hes fitted the front headlamps pedal box and some other things (havent seen him for a while so not 100% on whats hes got done) but its slowly coming together and shouldnt be long now.

i would have thought we will be making some more progress with it on saturday too.

anyway heres some pics from a fortnight ago..

cheers for comments guys

it will be having a bigger better engine once hes learnt to handle it. lol or at least twin 40s and a cam in the xflow.

shell is mint its hardly been welded as well.

as for cibies, hes only having two super oscars. (if it was mine it would be having 4) but he only likes 2.

spoke to joel last night.

we will be working on it later today...

hes added a few more bits to the engine recently such as k&n carb filter. the fuel tank and brake servo and pedal box are also in..

hes also picked up and single 45 weber carb for it, but it wont be going on yet as it needs trumpets and re-jetting..

and today a few of the other lads are coming down to lend a hand fitting the fuel lines in and wire it all it up, may even be running later today.

got a bit more done to the escort this afternoon,

got the snapped stud out of the exhaust manifold and replaced it with a bolt so thats on tidy now.

pedal box is also now mounted in properly

grills on tidy now

we have fitted and wired up the starter motor.

and wired up the solenoid for it and ran power lead through to the boot for the battery. thats all wired up along with earth straps. it wont turn over though but we think thats to do with the wiring to the ignition switch and also the fuses in the fuse box are as old as the hills lol.

started to pipe in the fuel lines too.

picked up some supplies and front brakes pads and fitting kit as well.

may be working on it tommorow, if so the front brakes will go on and maybe the brake lines and fuel lines

this is how it currently looks
