So I thought I'd make a thread for the new vehicle.

The Scrote Van.

Escort Van 55
88bhp Turbo Diesel engnie.
PAS
Electric windows
Central Locking
RS2000 Recaros
Scorpion back box (shall be removed) as it twats the leaf springs)
Pump has been turned up.. told the previous owner it was only the pre-boost setting.

As I got it.
Image
Image
Image
Image

Fitted Cosworth brakes (Insurance WANTED me to modify it, due to being on a modified policy)
Image

Also painted all the surface rust areas with white hammerite.
Image
Image

Still need to remove the rear bumper bits, paint behind them, repaint them black, and paint the towing kit black.

Not fussed about this looking perfect at all. The paint would probably come up well after a polish, but TBH I quite like the shit look again.

Future mods..
Sub fitted and bolted down
6x9's in the back somehow
6 inch spotlights
RS2000 Rear Discs
Maybe the Mondeo 16's, but I quite like the 15's that are on it... might even fit 15 inch steelies onto it.
Flip the rear axle to deck it
60mm drop on the front
Modded wishbones for camber adjustment
Boost gauge
Oil temp gauge
Up the boost to 20psi MAX!!
Turn the pump up properly
Remove the backbox and fit abit of pipe so no box at all.

So basically, a smokey but not as smokey as the previous scrote, decked, turd. FTW.

You're forgetting a mattress and some curtains for the panels to pretend they're windows.

So....

I painted the rear end bits to tidy it up.

Image

Image

Image


And then I spent this afternoon making a drastic change.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

60mm springs on the front
rear axle put on top of leaf springs, which took a while to do, welding and cutting ect.

BOUNCY AS FUCK.

Need to bin the scorpion backbox as it twats the leaf spring and shocker even more now.
Either gonna do a straight bit of pipe, or a side exit.

Yeah side exit it easy thanks to the exhaust route, it'll come out passenger side, so I'll smoke out people walking down the paths :lol:

Might have to flatten the pipe into an oval to clear the road, as its stupid low

Tempted to get another leaf spring, as this 55 has one less spring compared to the 75 van which can handle more weight... should stop it bouncing so much.. although I doubt I can be arsed to sort it.
