Hats off to you excellent build, and a fab little car, bleach is good for bottle, I also found biological washing powder in some warm water good, is the escort yours as well? Always wanted to build a mk2 slab front.

No the escort is my neighbours. Its been stood since 92 according to the tax disc. We've had many conversations about, with him saying "he's going to restore it" but he also has another 2 non runners on his drive, so I can't see that happening any time soon! lol

if you dont want to put bleach in the bottle use milton tablets in the baby section at your local supermarket they work a treat done my own cars washer bottle the other day as it was full of crap came up like new just put 2 milton tablets in with warm water n empty it after 15 minutes do it 2-3 times then leave it to soak over night and voila a clean washer bottle no scrubbing needed

The plans are to use it as a summer run around and to drive to work in if im local in the office. I can't stand driving my company car now, I spend far too much time in it! lol

It flew through its mot today!

It keeps jumping out of second gear though, so looks like the gearbox has got to come apart!

I got a few snaps of the underside whilst I was there.

Mat,

sickeningly good... Git!

chances are if its jumping out its a worn selector fork (as you probably know) if it is I may have a spare good one.

Thanks for the comments!

Ive had a thought, as its a magic wand box, would it be possible to cure with adjustment of the linkages at the back?

I appreciate this a bit of an excavated thread, but is there an easy fix to return the pictures, or is it a photobucket ruined thread.
Just got some time to kill and would like to revisit it in all its splendor.

I think photobucket went back on their desicion to end 3rd party hosting, obviously everyone jumped ship. So all the pictures should be fixed again, they work for me anyway

Thatĺs strange, as the thread only shows a handful of images for me, and a lot of square boxes where they should be?

I also see the pictures but I remember having to add a photobucket embed fix addon to firefox. I don't know if it's still needed but I still have the addon and it's enabled.

Strange, im not using any addons either. Might be something to do with cached images/cookies/other internet things i dont understand. Maybe try clearing your history and everything else on your browser see if that helps? Might be talking bollocks though *happy*
