Mk2 Escort - The Journey
 
04:46
Ive put together a short edit showing just a small percentage of the photos taken throughout the 8 1/2 year restoration of my Mk2 Escort. The video starts when i bought the car as a stripped rotten shell in North Yorkshire in 2008, then follows onto just some of the work thats went into bringing it back to life. Then onto its completion in 2017. Its been a long hard financial, emotional and gruelling journey which has seen me through, leaving work and re studying for a new career, a serious injury, marriage, a new house and my 2 beautiful little boys. How i managed to keep the momentum going, ill never know. Im looking forward to enjoying it and upgrading it when i can.

RetroFord Magazine Feature
 
02:38
Probably one of my proudest moments when i picked up my copy of RetroFord Magazine in June last year which had my car featured in the front cover, centre pages along with a full 8 page feature. Through 8 1/2 years of building the car in my Dads garage. Through the financial strain, the seriously hard graft and late nights and weekends working on it, not to mention making my wife a garage widow whilst i beasted away at building my car, I never thought it would grace the cover of a magazine. Super proud of myself and my Dad for building a car that we can look back on and say, "We built that"

Hit a deer in a Mk2 Escort, front end is toast!
 
10:00
Knockhill trackday 19th August 2018 Traveling to Knockhill for a track day when disaster struck! A deer jumped out in-front of the car whilst i was travelling about 70mph! Absolutely gutted, cars a bit of a mess but i'm extremely lucky to have walked away from it! I drove the car up the road a bit more, the steering was ok, brakes were fine and nothing was leaking so i decided to carry on with the track day. Probably not my best track time but i was still a bit in shock on the track so didn't want to push it too much! Cars smoking a little bit now so im gonna have to investigate. Its a sad day, but, im still here and the car will get fixed. nothing i can do really!

Bo'ness HillClimb Revival 2017 (Mk2 Escort)
 
05:00
Decided to take my car along to show it off for the first time after finishing the build. I was at the annual Bo'Ness HillClimb Revival. Cracking little show with a very friendly atmosphere. Lots of good feedback on the car and some really nice comments. I didn't get the best footage but i was enjoying walking around i actually forgot to film. Thinking of entering the car into the hillclimb in the future. I think itll more realistically see a Knockhill track day before i start doing hillclimbs, just due to the cost involved in getting all the right gear etc. Music - Rock Angel - Joakim Karud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8eRXvLL7Wo Filming Equipment FIlmed on a Samsung Galxy s7 Edge https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01C5OIINO/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=6738&creativeASIN=B01C5OIINO&linkCode=am2&tag=mk2dave-21&linkId=076a4bd2c38d8e35cdb8683728b46c5d I also filmed this on a GoPro Hero 2, these are a bit old now so here is a link to the GoPro Hero 5 https://www.amazon.co.uk/GoPro-HERO5-Black-Action-Camera/dp/B01M14ATO0/ref=as_sl_pc_tf_til?tag=mk2dave-21&linkCode=w00&linkId=ae78ea91376b96cc5fb69924fe467f70&creativeASIN=B01M14ATO0 Gorrilla Pod Tri Pod https://www.amazon.co.uk/Joby-GorillaPod-SLR-Zoom-Tripod-Cameras/dp/B000KFRSG4/ref=as_sl_pc_tf_til?tag=mk2dave-21&linkCode=w00&linkId=60e84e83bbc36d7067c74b94063a7f05&creativeASIN=B000KFRSG4

Weathers been really crap recently and I've been pretty busy so I've not been out in the Escort much. Took it for a little spin using a the GoPro suction cup mounted on the passenger window.

Mk2 Escort crash repair, temporarily fixed!
 
11:10
Hi Folks, little update on the car. Ive got it bent back to a reasonable state for now. I can still use it so all is not lost! Delving a little further into the damage. I think i can hammer the front a little straighter when its time to fix it properly and just hopefully put a light skim of filler on it to make it pretty again. Next job on the car, probably do a compression test, and pull the head off, find out why its smoking a bit. Likely ill need to send the head away for some work to be done on it.

Mk2 Escort crash repair (Part 1)
 
08:03
Hi Folks Not the most interesting video, but i thought id pop the camera down in the garage while me and my dad had our first shot at trying to bend out the front end after hitting a deer at about 70mph. We removed the radiator and luckily theres no damage there. It looks like i made the right decision leaving the vertical support brace in when i was building the car, as it looks like thats saved the damage from being a lot worse! Thats now completely split so i may end up cutting it out now! We basically put a large block of wood against the front panel and levered it back out again as straight as it would go! The grill is broken in various places but i'm just going to glue it for now until i get another one. There were no bits missing from it so at-least thats something! The bumper and brackets need put in a vice and bent straight again. I managed to pull the front spoiler out fairly straight by hand. Ive got a new head light but noticed the rear bowl etc is broken too. Ill stick it back together, and get it useable again for now. The paint works a bit of a mess at the front at its split and flaked off in various places, ill touch it up here and there but not stressing about it too much. At this stage i'm wondering if ill get away with stripping the paint off the front and getting the panel as straight as possible, then just filling and painting it. Thats not till next year but if i can save the front panel i will do. Thanks for watching and don't forget to subscribe if you want to keep up to date and hit the notification bell.

Not much going on with the car just now. Waiting on parts as the clutch cable snapped on the day of the Bo'ness car show so unfortunately didn't make that!

Knockhill Ford  2018 (Mk2 Escort)
 
03:41
First time ever taking my newly built Mk2 Escort on track at Knockhill at Ford Live. Managed to get red flagged on the second lap to sort a fuel overflow issue. Got it sorted then went out a further 4 sessions on track. Taking it really easy in these laps but my confidence grew as the day went on. Bit of a GoPro fail on the day though so unfortunately this is the only in car footage. Note to self. bring a spare battery and a bigger SD card! Car was absolutely brilliant, never missed a beat, pulled well and managed to drive it to Knockhill and home again! Definitely got the track day bug so ill be back!

Mk2 Escort at Knockhill Run 1 19/08/2018
 
12:17
After getting over the bummer that was crashing my car on the way to the track (hitting a deer) i set out for my first session in Group 1. Started of pretty mild but started to get my confidence up a bit. Got black flagged because the car was blowing a good amount of smoke out the exhaust coming out the hairpin. Got my knuckles wrapped as i thought it was the Saxo he was waving the flag at, lesson learned, if you see a blag flag, go in anyway just to be sure!

Some old footage i found of me and a mate taking my old Mk1 Escort out for a little spin. I think this was from 2004 hence the terrible phone video capture! I sold this car in 2008 to fund the build of my Mk2 (Smurf) Id love to track this thing down and see whats happening with it. Last i heard it was in London. Be interesting to see if its changed!

It had to happen some time! Just about to start filming some drive by's etc when the top of the accelerator pedal sheared off! Fairly easy fix but nothing i could do at the side of the road. Unfortunately play time was cut short and It was a long tow home! Lol!

Trying out the suction cup mount for the GoPro on my Mk2 Escort. Really wary at first but it held well.

Mk2 Escort fly past
 
02:33
Just put my GoPro down at the side of the road and drove past a few times. Not something i ever get to see because I'm always driving the car but thought it sounded great watching the footage back. Ill get one of my mates to film me at some point but the GoPro on a tripod will do for now. Pretty windy in parts!

Budget GoPro Mic + Mk2 Escort update
 
05:35
I thought I would do a review on this super cheap Go Pro mic i picked up from one of those foreign sellers. It cost me £1.50 and took a couple weeks to arrive. Whilst it didn't work at all on an Android phone. I was actually quite surprised how well it worked with the GoPro Hero 2. I plugged this straight into the external speaker jack on the GoPro 2 If you fancy one yourself the link is below http://www.dx.com/p/dagee-dg-001mic-universal-3-5mm-jack-wired-nylon-housing-microphone-for-pc-black-200cm-263048#.WjqJ7VSFhTY Thanks for watching.

Final Run of the day, cut short by heavy fog. The car had enough punishment for the day so it was time to head home!

Mk2 Escort at Knockhill Run 2 19/08/2018
 
14:11
Second run, went well but got a light warning that the car was still smoking a little, not as bad as before but still there. Hitting the hairpin in second gear doesn't seem to be doing the car much good so i tried taking the hairpin in 3rd and its totally fine. I need to stop trying to slide it as its an open diff and isn't gonna slide properly till i get an LSD.
