Hi All,

In 2008 i bought another Escort RS2000mk2 Custom ( I used to have one many moons ago, bought as a 21st birthday present to myself after completing my apprentiseship)

Unfortunately it wasnt as good as the seller told me it was so a full strip was undertaken to restore it to as new condition (funds permitting & all re-usable original components were used to keep costs down and originallity up lol)

Hopefully some pics showing the stages of her re-birth.

32 years worth of crud to remove (oh joy!)

Got it all off eventually using hot air gun/ scrapper/petrol/rags.Not the most pleasant job but nice to see it looking good and clean,

Just because it cant be seen doesnt mean it shouldnt be made as clean as possible (wiper linkage sits inside under dash)lol.

Boot fit looks wrong due to no seal

On underside we tried to replicate the factory look, grey inside chassis rails with paint/overspray outside rails and under arches.
