Fixed - you had doubled up on the " [img]" Tags, when you copy the picture URL from photobucket it already puts the correct Tags in place so all you have to do is write your spiel

Hit enter

Paste the Photobucket (IMG) my pic is here (/IMG) NB you would use square brackets e.g. [ ]

then continue with your write up, if you click the edit button on your post above you can see the code for yourself, as soon as it's posted your web browser follows the parts Between the square brackets as instructions, hence why I can't write the exact code above.

Impressive progress. I like your workshop space. More room than mine, though the heating system may leave a bit to be desired. Is the grey sheet behind the rear side panels for sound deadening?

the grey sheets came with the rear panels when i bought them, it is about 1" thick, so i thought i would put it back in,
still more to do,
headcloth,front seats, rear seat belts, and more,
trouble is when i start some thing, and if it rains, i get wet Angry

For a few days i have had a banging at the rear of the car Angry so i moved the exhaust pipe around for a few day and it was the same, so on the weekend i took it of and cut it down and mounted it as a side pipe, drove off the kerb and " yes the banging was still there Shocked " it turned out to be the spare wheel carrier where it clips in the u bit on the rack, the rubber  bits on the end were worn Angry, a few hours work for nothing, so if you have banging on the rear of your car check them first,

As mine is a early chassie i spent all day undersealing it, job well done, + gave it a service,engine /gear box/ diff  oil, checked all the brakes and the seals all fine Smiley,
have now started the job i hate Angry tcutting it and polishing it to get the body back to a nice standard, fitted the rear speakers in, and put a speedo in that have a trip meater for the milage, 
this is what is stopping me working on the car when it is fine,my new toy.

Took it for the mot the day before the holiday, the mot guy was talking and asking me about it, said how solid the chassie was and the fiberglass body, the said it had passed Smiley, with no problem, then said it was nice to see the old escorts put to a good use after they rusted away,
