    Thanks a lot ben! If you guys like these little Escorts, I put the MK1 shell on to see how it looks standing on its wheels:





    And also the Mk1 shell halves are not bolted together, so it makes for a nice scale work in progress :)

    Here are two other "nothing new so I post old stuff" kind of pics :) I attached the front metal part (don't know how it's called lol) with magnets and snapped a couple pics.

    Lately I have been thinking about some details such as how I will do the rear sway bar, because I know for sure it is going to have a lot of body roll in the rear, given how my shocks are mounted fairly inwards. And also will make a front strut tower brace, like the 1:1 attached forward of the actual struts.

    I read through your entire thread over on Scale4x4 and I have to tell you, you do outstanding work. I love how much detail most people on here put into this hobby, and yours is over the top. Great Job!

    Thanks a lot for the comment Plan s!

    Update!

    I did a little bit of work tonight, but first some teasing :) Anyone guesses what this is? Obviously it is not finished in that pic, but you won't wait long to know, just the time to write the post and link the pics

    Brand sparkling new transmission tunnel! lol





    Just like Preston did on his Escort build, I trimmed the tranny so it fits nicely in the transmission tunnel:





    This is how I drawn the tunnel in 2D first, this is the height I am aiming at for the motor and tranny, I want the bottom of the tranny to be about floor height. And I want the motor to sits on the wheels:






    I will have to lengthen the driveshaft by approximately 1 inch, I will do that with a solid extension on tranny output shaft. Some pics on the car:








    And some comparison to a reference pic:







    The driveshaft tunnel should be same size as the small end of the tunnel,and I might be able to get away not doing a diff tunnel in the rear, because the height of the small end (and eventual driveshaft tunnel) should be just enough to clear the diff at current full compression.
