Well, i just gotta get tires on my new wheels, and my first major enhancemnt to my 2000 escort will be completed. Besides that, all i have is a grill insert (no i didn't spend $75). Anyway, anybody got suggestions on what i should do next....prefereably something not too expensive.

Rear swaybar... sure it's a little pricy.. but well worth it. Very simple to install too. (will kick you out of stock class if you ever plan to go racing SCCA)

Manual or Auto trans? If manual, ask Matt about the pacesetter shifter.. or look for one from an Mazda Protege5 (is it?) in a junkyard/on ebay.

What tires are you planning to install? What size?

actually, i was thinking about shaving the emblems, i'm not sure yet though. I wanted to do one more job before the cold weather sets in here in NE. The swaybar is a little out of my pricerange right now, maybe next summer. Unfortunatly, i have an auto trans, i'd prefer the manual, but when i bought the car, the auto had 30,000 less miles and was about a grand cheaper.

*edit* i bought 16 in. wheels, 205 45 16 tires

I was just thinking about emblem removal, and thought of a problem. I have almost immaculate oxford white paint, if i removed the emblem and paint came with it, it would be damn near impossible to do an invisible touchup. I don't know if i want to take that risk

the emblems are easy.. well the sticker ones.. my ESCORT GT sticker came off with some GooGone and some patience. The ford logos are sorta built INTO the whatever your takin it out of... so you would have to bondo/paint wherever the ford is, Noone would know its an Escort Tho? for all they know it could be A Ford GT :D.. *stupid ppl*

that'd be great if i had an escort GT. i have a base model 2000 escort, all the badges are the built on kind, i don't want to take the chance on ruining my finish. Maybe i'll just by the Ford GT when it comes out :)
