This is the 53rd  Historic RallySport GRP4 Escort to be built to date and the 2nd for the Australian Classic Rally Championship. This car is due to be finished and ready to ship to Australia by mid June.

Shell is now in our fabricating shop and work is well on its way getting all the important group 4 fabrications done correct to drawings, this will take 10 weeks to complete before it will be ready for delivery to our paint shop.

Roll cage is now fitted less door bars as they will be fitted at the end of the fabricating to allow easy access until shell is complete.

Fabricating is now close to being finished, Rear Turrets / 15" rear wheel tubs / four link boxes / panhard rod tower / ZF Gearbox Tunnel / rear diff tunnel / front Gussets and all skids have now been fitted.

Jacking points are fitted which will be also used for the sill stands during service. Underbody protection being fitted where all inserts are welded into the shell to easy assembly and removal when car is being cleaned after events, this underbody protection is a consumable item which will need to be changed as it wear's out due to stone damage during events but keeps the original floorpan in perfect condition.

All work in the boot is now finished with all inserts welded in ready to accept the parts which will be fitted into the boot, also a nut gun holder is fabricated to hold the gun during events.

All fabricating is now coming to an end with door bars going in next along with front wings arches / front spoiler then mud flap brackets.
