I'm new to this forum but thought Id share some pics of my latest project. I was disappointed to see that there really isnt any projector headlight options out there for the 97-02 Escort Sedans. In fact pretty much the only aftermarket headlight is the black background ones. I picked up a 1100 dollar Escort beater and the headlights were in bad shape. So I decided to create some real HID projectors. I got some very good condition OEM headlights from the junkyard. I purchased a "G3" bi xenon HID projector kit off of ebay for 130 dollars. This kit has the US cut off spec projectors with OEM 4300k HID bulbs and ballasts. Making the headlights was not as simple as I would have liked. The projectors didnt fit like I had hoped, so I ended up having to cut out the back of the headlight reflector quite a bit in order to recess the projector far enough back to put the lens back on. To remove the lens, I baked the headlights in the over at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes and then carefully removed the lens from the housing. After assembly and adjustment, I used adhesive silicon to put the lenses back on. This isnt a write up on how to do it since unfortunately I didnt take any pictures along the way, but if you are pretty creative and are good at customizing you will be able to do the same thing no problem. I mounted the G3 projectors in the housing with epoxy and epoxy putty along with 1 screw per light. I have about 8 hours of work in the project and another couple of hours at night aiming the headlights. The nice thing is you can still use the stock aiming system to adjust these lights.
