    Newbie from Fife (Scotland)

    Been registered a while and long time forum lurker.
    On the hunt for a std Type R, something a bit special to keep long term.
    Hopefully you don't mind a Scot on your forum.

    Cheers, Mark

    Hello! Welcome to the club! I hope you get sorted with the right car soon. No need to feel 'out' because you are a Scot, we welcome as much nationalities as possible.

    Spec

    Looking for the best condition car I can find, it will initially be run as is ...... but the S5 WRC carbon fibre kit Jamie Flett currently produces certainly of interest.
    I’ve learned over last 30 odd years of Escort ownership that buying the best condition shell is paramount. The rest is just nuts and bolts.
    I am also considering a V4 STi RA at the moment, with any luck I’ll find 2 nice cars.

    Your right Condition is everything but remember you have to cut 80%of the rear archs off to fit any of the wide arch kits . Would it not be wiser to start with a car that needed rear arch work that cutting a mint car ?? .

    Its differant if you have a car and want to do it , then it makes no odds . But before you start it might be a good advantage as the same work needs to be done either way

    Clean v4/5 type r. 10/12k
    wide arch kit. 7/8k
    tub work / fetteling 2k
    painting 2k

    total 22/25k

    car needing work 5/6k

    total 17/19k
