How difficult is it to fit a body kit meant for another car to an escort? What kits/cars work well for this type of application? I'd like to get a kit for my gt but there's not much to choose from. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

I've heard stories of people who take kits off of mainly hondas. Things like CRXs and accords seem to work well. If you're good with fiberglass and bondo, the sky's the limit. In pretty much any circumstance, you want to buy large, and cut down. For example, if you have a bumper that is too wide, you can cut it in half down the middle so it stays symmetric. Then you can fiberglass to make everything look straight and pretty, then paint later. It's a pretty big job, but if I were to kit my car, I have no doubt in my mind that I'd do it custom like you would. It looks so much better when you can pick and choose and get a tasteful look that works well with itself.

A plastic welder would probably work well on making bumper mounts too.

Hi folks

here is what I did to create my custom bumper...

there are some photos and explanation of what I did to make it happen...
it was my first try at suck thing...and it was pretty easy...juste make sure you mesure twice...and cut only once....and get the proper tools to sand things down.......wich is sanding block and some kind of a cheese scraper to roughly shape the bondo......

it took me like a week to build my custom bumper...but now it would take me like 1 or 2 days at most...seriously once you learn some tricks...its fun to do....but i hope you have patience...cauz sometimes you get pissed about sanding heheh :p
