    Nice rack White-Lightning! Been hanging stuff from the garage rafters for years. I have painted just about everything for my Nova this way; assembly coming soon, maybe even today.

    lol. That rack actually is for removing and installing the engine in my A100. On a side note I now have Whiteline poly bushings in my lateral links so no more universal bushings , that kept sliding apart. Took awhile to get the right ones, but had great customer service from Cork Sport and White Line.

    Those were universal bushings. I regretted those from when they started walking out. I just replaced them with direct fit bushings from White Line. If you call Corksport they maybe able to get you the correct ones. Tell them you need the lateral link bushings for a 94 Protege with an o.d. of 32mm.

    For the White Line bushings? They probably will need to be asked for as the current listings are not correct and it took a little while to get the correct bushing after the first ones I ordered did not fit.

    Took the car to get it aligned several weeks ago, but due to bad tie rod ends they could not align it. I replaced all the tie rods two weeks ago and got it aligned last week. The alignment shop asked if I replaced the tie rods myself, after telling them I did they said I did a better job getting close as all they had to do was center the wheel. They said I did a better job than majority of the shops that send them cars to align.

    This is what happens when a Escort rearends a Honda Pilot and the trailer hitch gets it good.

    This is what happens on an impulsive buy, when you need transportation while fixing above Escort.

    Hardest thing to replace on the escort is going to be the core support since all the spot welds need to be drilled out and the new one carefully aligned. So now I have a '02 WRX wagon w/5-speed. Got the car for 3k below book value, so I can fix it and still be below book and resell it if I decide to. Right now I want to keep it, but have no clue whether I will keep and fix the escort, fix and sell, or just strip it and scrap it.
