    Yeah, my first mod on the wagon! Found this Mazda grille on a 323, saw that it breathes better than the stock 2nd gen Escort grille, measured it, did a bit of cutting, and slapped that bad boy on!

    I've got an idea for what I want for the bumper and headlights, but I'm keeping this car strictly junkyard when it comes to mods. Fortunate for me that I live near 2 of the best junk yards around! Oh, how I love discovery!

    Well, sure, okay, but you can usually find me at the Ukrop's meetup every Fri and Sat night after 10:30pm. The spot is near the carner of Midlo and Courthouse.

    I dremel, skills, and my imagination! .....no really, it's straight forward once you get into it, just get the grille and you'll see why.

    I can REALLY dig that. My wife agrees. She had a 323 once upon a time and she learned that they are the exact same car minus a few labels, badges and minor other body pieces. I like that but I would have to find a way to remove the mazda emblem and make it straight across.

    will a Protege grille fit? I found one on Rockauto for like 6 bucks and I was gonna buy a few different mazda, tracer, and escort grilles and mod them and see if LOWETGT and myself want to collaborate and do group buys for something a bit more...different...

    i dont know how other ppl got that to fitt..i did pull one from the bone yard and tried it on a escort there and the mount points are totally different. For sure you have to cut the sides to the same length as the escort grill. But not sure what to do about the mount points..

    Shoot, zip ties fix everything.... I didn't have plug wire clips on my old car and thats how I kept them off the exhaust manifolds lol... Worked for a while.
