Alot of people think that the zx2 nose will go right on the
2nd gen without much modificatoin, is this true or not?
Ive heard that it takes much modification to work, the
3rd gens nose will go right on the 2nd gen escort Ive seen
that done. :?

This question mostly reffering to skuce who has a zx2 nose

Ive read alot of peoples posts on this so I figured might as well
clear things up

i can answer this for sure because i have seen pictures of what he did... YES YOU WILL HAVE TO MODIFY THE FENDERS... something like cutting some out by the door then pulling it closer or whatever then filling the gap...imo it looks sweet but unless you have the skill to do it yourself NOT worth the money to have a shop do it.

A guy did that here and he did do major work to the fenders. But then I asked myself:
Wouldn't it be a straight bolt on if you get 3rd gen wagon front fenders? I figure the guy must've checked that, and I'm way off, but maybe he did it all for nothing too.
Of course in all this I'm assuming the ZX2 bumpercover and headlight stuff are interchangeable with the 3rd gen sedan's, but if so, look at the 3rd gen wagon. They did not change the wagon's body for the 3rd gen, only the nose, so they made front fenders to meld the 3rd gen nose to the wagon's "old" body, whose doors are pure 2nd gen, save the handle area.

You beat me to that james! Ya, Skuce has a very nice car. The first few times you look at it, it looks strange, but after that, it looks amazing.

Skuce used the rear half of the 2nd gen fenders and the front of the zx2 fenders spliced together. Very nice work I might add.

was his 94 lx a wagon? Because they have the EXACT same body only the nose is different, so they had to make the fenders and such fit on it.
