Thanks buddy and its a shame when mint low mileage cars get ruined by careless drivers

Very rare the mk2s, have had 5 xr2s over the years, many were badly rotten even then. Get the shell in brilliant shape and tweak all the running gear how you like it. Miss the sound of those cvh, they were pretty lively in the wet for something with 95bhp.

Definitely a period colour. Haha.
My Dad has me on the lookout for a Fiesta now, needs to be up to 2 years old and have found that Ford do a pastel mint green colour. Looks great to me.

Nice buddy. Bloody rare find now.

I understand doing a xr2 look but i think i would do a sleeper look. De bumper it. Lower it. Maybe some round hole across the front valance.

Either way, i cant wait to see what it comes out like.
