BUILDER: BEN HAKES FROM: UK

Classic Ford - - READERS PROJECTS SPECIAL -

Planned spec: re­stored to orig­i­nal- spec What’s the story: “I’m a mas­sive Ford fan and have been for more than 20 years,” reck­ons Ben. “I’m cur­rently restor­ing this N-reg Fi­esta RS1800, and let me tell you, it’s been a long hard road!”

“I found the car in a barn around five years ago, then de­cided three years ago to strip it down to a bare shell and do a full restora­tion — only it turns out this is harder and more ex­pen­sive than I thought! The body­work re­pairs are now com­plete and it’ll soon be off for prep and paint.”

Keep go­ing Ben, you’ll get there!

Body­work is al­most done.

RS1800’s restora­tion has proved to be a chal­lenge for Ben.
