Those are the Erebuni kit. It is the only actual kit made for the Escort. I basically looks just like a GT kit for LX´s. If you have a GT its not really any sort of upgrade.

My guess is your asking for a serious ground effects kit like Civics have. 92-95 Civics front bumpers are the right dimensions, but need custom fit work. From the rumors I´ve heard the Black Widow kits are the easiest to get to fit. I think neon skirts fit too, but not sure. I´ve seen a scort with a rear bumper from an accord too.

Almost forgot, Wheels:

Any 4 lug on 100 with an offset of 38mm.

The ones you see on my scort are Rage 5.0 17(x7)´s
I´m using Kumho 215/40ZR17´s for rubber.

I think an offset of 42mm is the max you can push

You can fit basicaly enything...You just need money. I would love to have Blackwidow or Streetfygther bumper..But it´s just too expemsive 700$ CAN. Neon side scirts ($450) are the easiest to fit as well but again it´s all money. And we are not talking about few hundred.. at least one grand of even more.

Actually idea is pritty simple. You got your ground kit bumper, for example Blackwidow, you place it against your existing bumper, and mark the places where you´ll need to make a holes in your esisting bumper so mold slides on. DO NOT mode ground kit bumper. Only thing you have to mode/cut drill...etc is your existing stock bumper. I said before it´s better to screwup bumper that you can get gor $100 on junk yard then screwup ground kit bumper that is 400$.. So after you´re able to fit mold over your stock bumper. You´ll need some artistic talent to find bugs and missmatches. Is those mathces are progressive -you will need dremmel. Otherwize you´ll need to fill it with fiberglass fill. again DO NOT MOD your ground kit bumper.!!! Only if there small things that needs to be grinded or cut off!!. After you are all done and everything looks great. You use the best double side tape you can find. I recomend 3M. Clean with acetone. Use a heat gun to warm tape and stick your bumper on. Be sure it´s holding good. Then after about a day. You can paint it.
