    I JUST PICKED UP A 93 ESCORT GT AND IM GOING TO DO THE BP SWAP SOON BUT THATS ANOTHER TOPIC! IT CAME WITH A 2001 FORD MUSTANG BUMPER 1 FRONT AND 1 REAR. THEY WERE IN THE CAR WHEN I PICKED IT UP.

    NOW I HAVE MOCKED IT UP AND WITH MINOR MODIFICATION IT CAN BE DONE (AND IT WILL BE DONE) I'M GOING TO INSTALL THEM ONTO MY 93 LX STATION WAGON AS SOON AS I CAN.

    SO WHAT I'M TRYIN TO SAY IS WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? I TOOK A PICTURE OF IT (IT WAS GETTING DARK SO THE QUALITY ISN'T THAT GREAT) CHECK OUT MY CARDOMAIN http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2909849/4

    First off, turn off the caps!! Ok. The BP swap will be cool and if you can make the mustang bumper work that will definitely be unique.

    Sorry bout the CAPS LOCK but my left shift key is broke. i know i have a right shift key but i have a habit of only using the left one.

    i'm going to leave my stock bumper on for support. i'll have to modify it to make the bumper's aerodynamics work like i want them to. thr resr bumper is going to take a little more fabrication than the front but that's what you get when you want something custom.
    the rear bumper says mustang on it but i'm going to fill that in.

    Sounds interesting, I'm curious as to how it turns out.
    For a while I was looking into a fox-body bumper, I just couldn't find one that was in my price range. (you'd be amazed how hard they are to find sometimes)

    Finn; Go to Speedway Motors on line as they make replica bumpers and nose pieces for the Fox Mustangs. Easier to find and not bad on price.

    And they do make what are called "skins" for the Fox cars. They are replica side panels made of aluminum and/ or plastic. They aren't factory standard in looks but if your going for a 'Stang" look it opens the door for way to do it with a lot less fabrication needed.
    I've looked at the drag racer replica panels but they seem more pricey to me. And just go to Drag Race Crashes on YouTubba to see how durable they are!

    And some of the racing plastic and fiberglass parts are NOT meant for winter use. They get as brittle as 3rd Gen Escort bumper bars, IE: they SHATTER!

    Thanks zx2,
    I'll look into it, it'd be interesting If I could get one to fit my 'scort. We'll see what tomorrow brings, maybe I'll feel adventurous.

    yea Mustang wagon does sound like a good idea! i could just use my rims and just put mustang centercaps or cobra badges on the rims :D
    i have actually thought about the Cobra lip! and i'll have to measure the hood to see if it would work. i'm also going to have to do a set of custom headlights to make it look good maybe even mustang headlights!

    In the Late Model body section of the catalog they have new Mustang noses.
    They are 2 piece, split vertically down the middle and the headlight covers are molded on. (They use the headlight and grill stickers on them, just like Geff Jorden!). That would be easy to get to fit, and I bet if you call they have
    some Fox noses still around they would love to sell. Seems anything over 5 years old is 'Out Dated', except the 70s Monte Carlos!
    And would you believe you can get Pinto 'Skins" yet!
    :eek:

    Should look good once everything is fiber-glassed. What are you planning for side skirt-wise?

    I got the side-skirts from the 93 Escort GT donor car sitting next to the wagon i wish i had the 94+ or newer ones cuz they are a little different. it was getting late so i couldn't install them but maybe tomorrow.

    I used a 1/8" pilot bit and drywall screws for now till i get some pop-rivets the rear bumper has to be removed so i can shave a inch or two from the top I also have to make some support brackets for the rear bumper (sides and the bottom to sturdy it up)

    Where you opened the rear bumper vent for the exhaust, I would just open up the whole vent.
    The reason I say this is My wife tore the back bumper off of my zx2 and it was much more stable on the highway in cross winds and got better mileage. 8O
    I got to looking with the bumper back on, and it looked like it caught a lot of air under the car.

    how low was your front bumper? my front bumper is about 5 to 6 inches from the ground and my car sits low anyways so i don't think that very much wind is getting under there. i also plan on raising the rear coilovers up to give the rear some more clearance.

    I have thought about removing the whole vent as you said but i don't think that it is going to look all that well
    but any ways i'll give it some thought after i drive it around a while!

    -edit-I may also put a chin spoiler on t as well or maybe even a custom splitter/diffuser so i'll have alot more downforce! "THE MORE DOWNFORCE YOU HAVE, THE MORE TRACTION YOU GET!"
