1st Gen Questions about Mods

1473 Views 8 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Steve
I recentley recieved a handsome sum of money and instead of buying a new car i decided to invest it in my 1990 escort GT.

Right now i´m not concerned about performance, i usually beat people with its stock set up(i dont race alot mind you, but when i do its just those stupid little high school parking lot races) I wanna improve its look bigtime, every thing is decent there are a few rust spots and some paint discoloration but i plan to get the car´s body redone and repainted. Here is what i will do to the car :

Tinted Windows,
Merkur Double Wing Spoiler,
A very boomin sound system,
Some mustang type rims,
Black paint job with white racing stripe down left side,
Custom painting inside going for a Black and White theme,
New Stick Shift (8-Ball prob)
New Racing Seats (even though i dont race)

Those are the mods i will get done but here some mods i want done but not sure if i can get done(if you get what i´m saying)

Halogen Lights (i think those are the real bright ones not sure though)

Clear Tail and Corner lights

Lowering Springs ( dunno if my car will support them, if my car can what is a good height)

Better Gril (the one that says Escort GT)

Neons underneath

Thats all i can think of, if any of you know any other mods please post, like i said before i am going for looks with this and will worry about performance down the line. I wanna show up some of them Gay hondas i see everywhere, i can already beat them might as well look better than them.

ALl comments are welcome, thank you.

thanks rascal , well i went to a junk yard near my house and i found two merkur double wing spoilers, the dude wants $100 bucks for them. Just wondering how would i go about Taking off my old spoiler and adding this new one, and if i need to make any modifcations what should i do, this will be my first mod, i am keeping a journal too as i do all this. I´m not really a car dude but i know a little bit, i am very excited about this project i cant wait till its completed.
Ya first Gens do Rule
, i´ll be buying the double wing spoiler next week prob.

I know Cosworth Wananabe has one on his scort, in matter of fact his scort inspired me to wanna do this, i still need instructions how to take off my old one and how to add this merkur one, and i need to know what mods i might have to make, if any one can help please do, oh yeah this is all going in a journal and when i´m done with my project i´m gonna post it, this should help those people who dont know alot about cars (like me), but i am enthusiastic about it.k

ANy comments and All help welcomed, thank you

Ok thanks bro, i am writing a journal and making this journal into a guide in about 2-3 months everything should be finished, i should have the only modded scort in my area, i see a bunch but usually no one mods them, just rims and tint (bleh), i´ll remeber to give you credit for the parts youve helped me on. thanks again
