BUILDER: BEN HAKES FROM: UK
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.
