Thanks to the folks here and my understanding wife, project EscorGo is almost finished.
I was at the lake sailing today and I thought I would take a few shots. It's a little spotty due to the recent rain but you get the idea. The paint is Ford '09 cinnamon metallic over pueblo gold. I was going for the crossover look.
You can see the side skirts, driving lights, and GT grill I bought from the forum. You can't see the header, 50% UDP, Magnecor plug wires, strut bars and numerous repair parts I installed.
I have a better write-up on the web but it's a little out of date

I still have to fix my rough idle, a clunk coming from the steering rack and replace the E-brake cable(s).

Thanks guys. It serves me well - hauls gear and bikes to the lake and gets 30MPG on my daily drive to work and errands.
I fixed the clunk with new inner tie rod ends and I added Energy Suspension rack bushings while I was at it. My biggest problem now is an idle that likes to "hunt". Haven't found the culprit yet. The e-brake will wait until I feel like crawling under again. Why did they have to put it under a heat shield :mad:

Nice work!
While you are under doing the e-brake work, have a look at the brake lines to the rear axle. Where they run up beside the fuel tank they can get rusty without being easily visible.

those skirts are not for a four door... 93-96 gt
so you are telling me the gt skirts fit? the wheelbase is the same basically?
not basically, every 91 and up escort as well as the bg protege has the same wheelbase. i'd imagine the 323 and mx-3 do, as well, but i'm not sure

cool. is there a thread with more shots of your car- and how you did those lights that look kind of like a mustang? that is fairly cool.
