    yeah if you've got a spare vehicle i'd give it a try to see how things go then you'll figure it out.. the side wings go on alot easier than you think

    I was almost thinking if making a mold of my deck there and the fitting it to that then sitting the mold on the car like a stencil.

    Yeah I like what you did with the corner lenses and that grill(034) has the 91-92LX and GT combo haha nice. I always liked the look of the shortened-Tracer grill(003) though.:hungry:
    some master fabrication there.

    Escort GT front bumper, pony grill ad the wheels. I have the gt side skirts but waiting to install until I get a uncracked gt rear bumper. I also would love to find a gt 3 piece wing. Car will be going under the knife this winter. It will be getting a repaint back to the blue. And the wheels will be stripped and actually powder coated instead of painted.

    Sorry I haven't been active for a while guys times been hard with the 9-5. I got a question to ask has anyone considered making a sunk in cowl hood yet? Was going to call the Jy this weekend and see if I could get a hood to start this project not sure if it'd be worth it to try or just buy one?... Any ideas on that? Working on making the new bumpers smooth instead of the designs/grooves in them. Think it'll look better then gonna make all the body trim on the side smooth also.

    Isn't the invader hood a sunken in design? I'm trying to fIgure out how to make a rear lip for the stock 3G rear bumpet. Thinking of getting another rear and trimming the bottom half off. Just need to figure out how to size and mount it.

    I'm not sure with out checking on the invader hood I believe so. But I was gonna try and save money and build one. But sizing shouldn't be that hard. Once you get the other one to the size you want just have someone help hold it up to it and line it up. And carefully trim to the size you need. Haven't done it yet but I'm working on a stock bumper and going to take the one on mine now after it's finish cut it down and see about dropping the height of the rear bumper down and mold it all into one when I'm done. No idea how it'll look May turn out looking crappy won't know till I try.

    Yeah- I toyed with the idea, but there isn't a ton of room to do it and make it functional- so I've decided to build a Viperesque hood when other projects get complete enough to allow me to toy with cosmetics on the Scort... I'll be interested to see your project if you take it on :) .
