Hey, does anyone know anything about the silver gt in the car showcase section? It´s pic#7 of costly obsessions meet#35. The car is a silver gt with a sweet ass headlight setup in it. Any info on it would be cool as to who /if anyone makes them or if their a home job. I think Escort Gt40 sounds kinda cool. Later

Hole, it looks like the pic you are looking at from the showcase is BMW 3-series lights, while Blade´s pics are of BMW Z3 headlights. It is funny that you guys are asking about this, as I am half way through that project, myself. And I thought I was the first one to come up with that idea. I have been thinking about this for about six years, after I saw a 3-series in a parking lot. Over the years, I have casually measured the occassional BMW with my hand, a sheet of paper, my checkbook, etc., all the while mulling the project. Well, I have finally done it. I should be done this weekend, now that Hurricane Lili is out of here.

As for the fitment, it is amazingly close and could look perfect by using GTS clear covers, but I am going to try the stock BMW covers, even though they do not match the curvature of the Escort, perfectly. There is an inherent advantage, in the fact that the BMW units are slightly shorter in height, so I have an ideal cold air induction port between the headlight and the bumper. To round it all out, I am using Tracer parking lights.

I was waiting until I finished it to tell you folks, but since you were on the subject, I figured I could let the cat out of the bag. It is a car-projectin´ weekend, as I should have my suspension put together by Sunday afternoon. Yeah!

Dumb question. I´m not a computer geek, so don´t break my balls, here. It is not completed, but I have some early pics of the lights. My question is, how do I attach a pic to my post? I know. I know. Look, I´m a car guy, not a computer guy.

Thanks

Marcus

So the 3-series lights i saw are without covers? Do you have to change the whole headlight mounting assembly, are they expensive, if those are xenon lights, how do you wire them in with the factory lights without burning out the scort´s light switch???? Too many questions on this mod, but i looks worth it!!!!! Serious stiffy over this mod

wow thats one bad scort, i had to look at it closer to believe it was one. love those taillights. seems like alot of metal fabricating and fiberglass work. to much time and money for me. the hood on that thing, where or how did they get it to look like that, is it made or bought from another car and fabricated to fit, looks nice with that grill. that is the best scort i ever seen. and do the girls come with it lol.
