contination of my Mk3 resto, this film is longer at 30 mins, and shows N/S floor pan prep, inner and outer sill work and work on the b pillar.PLEASE NOTE DONT USE A ANGLE GRINDER WITHOUT A GUARD ON, THIS FILM WRONGLY SHOWS ME USING A GRINDER WITHOUT GUARD. I HAVE SINCE FIXED THE BOLT ON GUARD AND RE FITTED. VERY DANGEROUS. ALSO BROKEN GRINDING DISCS CAN FLY OFF AT HIGH SPEED INTO YOUR FACE, WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. PLEASE OBSERVE ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. I WAS LUCKY. I APOLOGISE FOR PUBLISHING THE VIDEO WITH THE GUARD OFF, I DO TAKE SAFETY VERY SERIOUSLEY.

Cortina GXL restoration PT 12
Pt 12 of the restoration of a Ford Cortina 1971 GXL (early model) . Discovered in a field in Essex. Abandoned for 24 years. Left in the open, exposed at the mercy of the elements. Left for dead. Dismissed by critics as too far gone. Only a mad man would attempt it. Beyond the pale. Scary. Rusty. Riddled. Overtaken by mice and hazelnuts. Chassis holding on for dear life. The last dying moments. The reaper only inches away. The sickels mad swipe, she could have been lost forever. .... and then....came the rescue. This is the story, the full story of a mission impossible. A story of resolve. A story of creativity, one mans vision against the odds to hatch a plan to rescue one of the early survivors. A true gem. A real rarity. She will be re-built. This is total commitment. Maxium power. This is attricion. This is full throttle. This is round the clock. Non-Stop rebuild. FORD CORTINA 1971 GXL Please see previos pt 1-12 for detailed information on this incredible project.
