Huge progress will be made next week as the team return from their holidays.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”14216,14217,14218,14219,14220,14221,14222,14223,14224,14225,14226,14227,14228,14229,14230,14231,14232,14233,14234,14235,14236,14237″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
The two stage primer is now complete and she’s ready to be transformed back to the original factory colours. Soon to be Pearl Grey and Black.
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our old friend Brian couldn’t resist a drive round to the Mansion House Hotel to show Gordon how good his Ford Escort 1.6 Ghia really is.
It is so original with all it’s factory stickers. Even it’s paint sticker in the boot.
Only in Elgin to give it a run. Fill up with fuel and a final clean before the classic car show in Old Meldrum on Sunday.
Another win I am sure will be under this season car enthusiasts belt on Sunday night.
Good luck Brian.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”14311,14312,14313,14314,14315,14316,14317,14318,14319,14320,14321,14322,14323,14324,14325″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
With the engine out and being stripped and rebuilt we could now concentrate our efforts on stripping and correcting the seized brakes.
The brake shoes are totally seized from years of sitting around so we have removed them and are in the process of unseizing and stripping them to assess what work needs to be carried out on them.
We are now mid way through repairing the scrape on the nearside rear wheel arch. Here we are having prepped the body ready for the Signal red application later this afternoon.
With the front springs and dampers removed and the bushes changed we concentrated our efforts on tidying the engine bay.
The tops of the springs have been stripped back to bare metal and the air intakes have been removed ready to be re-painted.
