Ford Cortina Mk3 GXL restoration PT3(2)
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.

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
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

Cortina GXL restoration roof removal
gutter channels coroded beyond repair. No panels available. Only option is
a roof swap using donor roof. Decided to join on apanel using a staggered
join. Luckily cortina 3-5s use a split a post section, to halves, so its
possible to stagger the join for max strength. Was very lucky to find a
scrap car. NO CAR WAS WASTED IN THIS PROCESS. DONOR CAR WAS ALREADY DUE TO
BE CRUSHED/CERTIFICATE OF DESTRUCTION/SCRAPYARD WOULD NOT SELL
REGARDLESS.THEREFORE MY CRITERIA WAS MET. SAVE ALL CORTINAS IF POSS
