56k Icon >>> Escort RS TURBO - Show Car Detail - Zymol Vintage <<<

PART 1 AND PART 2 COMPLETED

Hi everyone, Thought i would share this detail i have been working on, It's a Series 2 Ford Escort RS Turbo that belongs to a good mate of mine who is a Ford RS crazy
About the car and the history, it was bought a 3 years ago in pretty good condition for its age at time but later after modding it a little my mate scott decided to fully re-build the car using new and used parts that meet to his high standards. the car was stripped ready for a full new paint job in Jet Black, once he built the car to spec it has covered about 3000 miles in 10 months and won a few trophys at show events.

With alot planned this summer the paintwork was not looking too good so i was set a challenge....how good can i really get solid jet black to look?

Full paint correction is needed and starting work on the paintwork proved to be the extremely soft in fact it was the softest paint i've ever worked on, making life very hard not to mark it even with any sort of contact but with endless machine polsihing to get the best finish possible, after 4 days of some of my best work i have completed the car today and it's now wearing a coat of my finest wax, Zymol Vintage.




























































Part 2


Good and bad news today.....managed to wash the car 2bm, dried and starting cleaning a very clean interior re-dressed the vinyl and tyres and cleaned the windows.

the heavens opened up and stopped play and battery on my camera died so my mate scott done some with is (will add the later this week)

Onto the final results









































All done and put away for a sunny day

Thanks to scott and everyone on here

Dan

Good job fella.

But why why why has the owner not sorted out that old header tank?
New one from Ford is only £15 and would finish that bay off a treat!
