Hi All,

Have been practicing putting up pictures ready for when i get round to taking some of my coupe resto!

The RS is a May built 1979 Aug registered (actually registered on same date as my daughters birthday, as the coupe is on my wifes coincedence?!?)

The colour is Riviera Blue, was originally a black car but my 1st RS was riviera and decided to re-paint it that colour as there are quite a few black RS's but not many riviera Blue ones and i have fond memories of the 1st car.

Mechanically it was sound and most parts were re-used after checking and cleaning/painting.

Body externaly only needed rear arches (inner lip and outer) but front inner wings needed replacing.

Enjoyed the restoration and am very pleased with the way she turned out.
Not used a great deal but great to take out on a nice dry day and re-live my youth!

Peter.

What a great job you did there. Super! Well done mate thumb I always wanted one of them, but at the time, they were well above what I could ever afford! Have you still got it?

Pete,
brilliant job mate (on a brilliant car) cool !

I had one (T plate so 1979) as a company car for about 9 months. Great fun, but then had to swap for a rusty Lancia Beta....

Hope you still have her,
Tim

Yes its tucked up for the winter in the garage smile

The coupe is round at the mother-in-laws so have to pop over there to work on it laugh

Oh for a double heated garage or even better a proper workshop with a 4 post lift!

Pleased about that; if I had that car it would sleep in my room and I'd have the garage love

Great stuff,

Tim

Ive got a venitian red rs2000 on an r reg, use it all the time but im always having to clean it, its now up for sale as I think the coupe is more useable as a daily driver, I will miss it though.

Nice early RS Matt, looks like it sold quickly then?

Did you fit the later Ford oval badges instead of the individual letters of the early cars?
