Background



Update: 17. Dezember 2016


In the beginning was the Idea

I always wanted a car that not only visually, but is also technically a little more sporty. Having stayed Several vehicles had rebuilt and primarily high value on Optics had laid, not on performance it should be a time His vehicle with at least 130 hp. So I looked once, which vehicles were obvious. Because there definitely be a Ford had concentrated on the a few vehicles. There should be either a Fiesta MK3 xr2i 16 V, an Escort RS2000 or Escort XR3i 16V. As I drove past a lot of Escort MK4 I would have liked this, but there was only the RS Turbo, unfortunately without TWC. But since many had built the 1.8 L Zetec engine in the Escort I wanted to me this installation even dare. Original of this engine was never built, so I had to make me worry about the installation. But since I was attention to someone who wanted to sell a Mk4 Zetec. So started its journey to Nuremberg and the vehicle in Made visually. The substance was more than "scrap heap" to declare, but the accessories including motor left my rejection weichen.Die chassis number was no longer available because the Owner had it cut out because he probably times of a had another purely welded. After the car for 1400 Euros the course had changed owners now have a base vehicle here, my eyes fell on Ebay at a 1.3 C So pretty much the cheapest model features what it was :-) came for 160 € I made ??possession of this vehicle, color red and seats as Potato sacks :-). So next, followed still various Orders for local car dealers and accessories on ebay. When I had pretty much got everything I could start with the project.
I would like to thank here especially in the car workshop Shepherd of Naunheim, particularly in Thomas Shepherd, of me during the total conversion time was very helpful to me and to the side some work and I also took off the garage and lifts available set. To Christian Meiler is a special thanks for long work on my rear bumper, which it probably brought almost to despair. Not to mention Memduh Kaya I was always on hand if when installing a few helping Hands were needed.




the Decomposition

Umbau
Thus, the project begins with the decomposition of the vehicle.


Umbau
Test of Rieger GTB bumper that but then I did not like.
The bumper looked right and left not look good,
because the fender flares did not exist.


Umbau
A few Hours later


Umbau
Inside I'm almost finished :-)


Umbau
So now it's just a body shell


Umbau
Inside for about half an hour and then it is there also empty


Umbau
finally done


Umbau
At times, it looked pretty bad out in the yard


Umbau
Here you can see pretty much the extent.
The engine and the rear axle has been completely unscrewed
with strut, tires, etc. went faster *grins*


Umbau
The donor vehicle had now believe it.
It all has been completely dismantled, which was needed because
He had a complete turbo braking system.


Umbau
After he was also apart
could he be scrapped


The Body

Umbau
First look at how accurately the cage.


Umbau
Looks ok, let's see if I still replacements side struts.
If you look closely you can see below the cage angle, MLS the cage that I had to attach because of the shortened owners was.


Umbau
How do I find a cross damn good.
The holes for the rear strut brace is now off also.


Umbau
Close the holes and mark the implementation of the
Number plate light with metal and fiberglass putty


Umbau
Here is just heating the hole closed and the
Cleaned-up battery storage, as it comes in the Interior of


Umbau
Well here everything is feingespachtelt.
You can also see below, the holes closed by Heat exchanger
and left them 2 holes for the new cable Leadership |

Umbau
The rear wheel arches had to re due to rust incl inner wheel be made


Umbau
The spare tire was removed and sealed with sheet metal, since the Exhaust at this point long runs.
Here I took the sheet from a T4 floor.


Umbau
After priming, nor above all with body sealant against Rust secure.
Below you can see the new place of the battery


Umbau
In the front area also had to be removed rust


Umbau
Also the sills were replaced and the rust underneath removed


Umbau
The second wiper hole was also closed as a future Sportwiper will serve the service


Umbau
Here you can see how the lower part of the former heating from rust is protected.


Umbau
The primed hood is already waiting on the paint


Umbau
The tailgate has also been prepared


The Interior

Umbau
Here parts of the interior with granite look spray be painted


Umbau
Also, the entire dashboard is painted


Umbau
The glove compartment lid on drying


Umbau
Here the radio, DVD player and the monitor is just wired


Umbau
OMG, so many Wires :-)


Umbau
So get ready, ever seen but good


The Assembly

Umbau
Now the assembly begins, the lift has helped


Umbau
The rear I have almost finished


Umbau
So now I can drain the car and mount the Engine attachments


Umbau
Here the engine before it a thorough cleaning and exchange
all seals, V-belts, timing belts, etc. were subjected


Umbau
The exhaust before sanding and repaint


Umbau
The holder of the exhaust under the former spare ground


Umbau
Here you can see the non-existent fuse box if you look closely


Umbau
Again, there is nothing void behind the engine


Umbau
And here you can see how the engine fits perfectly :-)


Umbau
So slow it looks like a car


Umbau
The rear bumper had unfortunately again due to the coatings Color difference


Umbau
The monitor sits almost good, just a little line up


Umbau
Here you can see how much work there is yet


Umbau
The left side after it was covered with fleece


Umbau
Here the right side is still undisguised


Umbau
Now Seat in


Umbau
Now he is almost finished inside


Umbau
So have a look inside :-)


Umbau
The cockpit also received the granite look effect


Umbau
Until late into the night working


Umbau
The door panel of fleece, without storage compartment


Umbau
The first time in the sun, install bumper is the goal


Umbau
Bumper is follow it and Rims
