Have now clocked up 1,000 miles since putting it back on the road. Had a slight rattle from the front end on rough roads, so I assumed the original arb drop links were worn. Spent weeks tracking down some TRW ones. However when I came go change them, there was nothing wrong other than a loose nut on the part that bolts to the strut....
It's getting smoother and smoother all the time as everything beds in and I'm now confident to take it anywhere without worrying about 1987 bits failing etc. Did 250 miles on Saturday and it just feels like a new modern car with heavy steering, loads of glazing, thin pillars and light weight. Ok it does feel a bit less rigid than a Golf!
Took it to a local car show yesterday, had only been there 15 minutes and was approached by a very keen Escort RS owner who wanted to buy my 1.9. I stopped him at £20k
My sister and her family came along for the day and she was amazed at the interest in the car.
