    You do know aero down force is a result of speed passing air over and under the car?
    Key Word: SPEED.

    Yes I know what downforce is i was just being sarcastic and playing along with what sedanman said.
    There is just no way possible that you could get any downforce doing a burnout unless you had an elephant sitting on your hood!! LOL but then again you couldn't do a real good burnout that way any ways.

    will look alot better if i had side skirts installed and at least primed i think that the 4 different colors make it look that way!

    Once it's all cleaned up and painted, it'll look nice, I like the way you think...

    ....except the APC sticker....it's got to go! APC sticker = instant rice!

    Now, get some side skirts!

    Thanks i wanted it to be different, also i wanted to use something that could flex a little bit without cracking like a full fiberglass kit would. nobody likes cracked fiberglass! i'm in the process of moving so progress on this project got put on hold for a short while as soon as i get situated i will pick up where i left off

    I guess that your not a ricer fan but that's alright. the sticker was cheap and i just wanted something to spruce it up it's peeling any ways so i plan on removing it later. What do you suggest that i put in it's place?

    I Got Them I Just Need To Install Them. Just haven't been able to because of having to move! They're Escort GT Sideskirts!

    get a zxtuner.com banner! not only are they not APC which makes them instantly better than APC, but they're escort specific and the vinyl is much much higher quality than those APC stickers

    You might be able to find some parts for the intake or maybe a piece of exhaust (muffler or piping) that you can order from Edelbrock. I haven't checked, but I believe those window stickers are still being made...

    Nothing...absolutely nothing! But if you do, keep it real, keep it legit. Also keep it out of the way, and subtle for only true car enthusist to respect and admire.

    it doesn't look to bad, and i'm not a fan of kits either. But this is not too bad, it should look pretty decent once its all glassed in properly and painted, good work!

    well i did everyone a favor and removed the APC sticker but the results wern't what i expected. when i removed the sticker the sticker image was burnt into the window tint.[​IMG]
    haven't decided on which decal to install.

    QUICK QUESTION
    At which point does it become rice; with the sticker or the MAZDA 1.8L engine thats going under the hood. just some food for thought!


    Sunday i installed the 93 escort gt sideskirts and they don't look too bad but i had to raise the rear bumper a little bit to match the side skirts still waiting till i have time to glass the bumpers though.

    That sucks about the tint, I expect mine will do that to my tint strip, oh well...

    I got one custom made at a local shop with the actual SVT and Tracer emblems...something you may consider looking into (similar anyway, especially where your going with Stang bumpers)...
