    Talking Escort cossie tidy up in back in 2007!!

    We had this superb car in our old premises in 2007 and i thought i would share it with you,not a veccy but hey can not have everything!! Just a few pics to get you going of this lovely machine! Apparently it is about 370BHP?? A awesome tool and a total classic.We are attempting it this week and will let you know how its going with some pics very soon!!

    Keep watching!!



    First we washed the engine bay to get rid of the dirt. It was pretty clean anyway!


    Then we foamed the car using our SSF through our twin foam lance diluted at about 50-1


    Wheels off to prep the arches and wheels



    Arches were cleaned using our MPC 10-1 pre-spray then rinsed,as you can see it cleaned them very well!






    Wheels were cleaned with our 'Brite Wheels' diluted with water @ 10-1



    Various parts of the engine bay were polished and cleaned.



    All taped up and ready to go!
    We polished the cossie with mezerna intensive polish with a Megs polishing pad, swirls we not too bad at all!

    Its so the pads doesn't strike an edge and burn/strip the paint. It also stops compound getting on the plastics and giving that horrible white look.
