Ford Escort RS2000 Cabriolet

Whilst this version of Ford's Escort Cabriolet wasn't as big a seller as its forerunners, there was still plenty of bodystyling choices available for it in its day. This particular one is backing its wild looks up with an RS2000 Zetec engine transplant, so it has the go to match the show.

For the cabin, there had already been plenty of painting and hydrodipping taken place - all I had to do was do a spot of colour-matching and a lot of upholstery work! So the seats are now resplendent in some of Crest's finest hides, finished with a white topstitch.

The doorcard and rear quarter inserts are wearing Crest Deep Ultramarine leather, again with a white toptsitch, and finished around the periphary with white piping. The bespoke tonneau cover is the same leather and finished with white binding and topstitch.

The steering wheel is black leather and has been finished with an alternating blue and white Bentley stitch pattern.

As transformations go, this one is right up there with the most dramatic of them but it's all very much in keeping with the spirit of the car as it is now. The owner was somewhat over the moon with the end result and there's nothing more that I can ask for as a trimmer.
