*MAXXD* Clare's Rieger F40 Escort Cabriolet "BigCab"

Its arrived, just 3 days from Hong Kong. F'ing amazing.



I've done a bit of work on dash to accomodate this and now I've got it I can finnish it off. It's guna look awesome. Although Clare's old stereo was not a cheap one, it works 100% fine and Clare still loves it, it is getting on a bit so an upgrade to a more modern unit was needed, I recon anyway.

I'll keep you all posted.

I found some old skool photos of it a shit load lower. Didnt realise, or cant remember it sitting so squat. I bet its a good 3 or 4 inch higher now on the 20s. Its hard to beleive that Mr Rieger designed the kit round a set of 15 inch wheels. ##Waits for the euro boys to say it looks better lol.##

LOL..

Innit funny. Looking back now I hate the back lights, the bonnet vent, the headlights and grille. And your'e so right Al. Those rims suck.

NEVER, EVER lose the grille you have! It makes the car and matches the age of the kit. Were it mine I might change the rims but other than that I reckon its an iconic car now.

Keep up the good work.
