    Look at Curts Ascona build thread on here. you will need to buy commo arms and an escort 4 link kit you will have to have the hubs re drilled to 4x100 I'd have the hubs milled and sleeved for the centre bore of the alloys too, see my cosworth build

    Quite a bit of work done since the last update. The car now runs and drives. Gearbox and prop painted new oil in the diff and the box drained and re filled with correct gm stuff New exhaust engine parts blasted and fitted new wiring new petrol lines new brake cylinders new calipers pads etc rad cleaned and painted more bolts and clips and pipes cleaned and painted bonnet is scrap so a replacement added car sent for a full paint job and when it got to the painters they noticed the doors had really poor repairs making the lower parts concave! second hand good doors with trim pins sorted and prepped using a wire wheel, DA and fertan rust fluid to penetrate the folded skin in the bottoms of the doors New plugs. Leads. Dizzy cap. Arm. Oil. 2k painted axle after nail gun and bilt hamber. Every brake line replaced. New fluid
