You talking about the white one or the purple one?

I love the 17´s on the white scort. They´re tight. How much were they?

Also, the wheel on the purple scort is tight too...

I wouldn´t mind having a new wheel like that. Where did you pick it up? How much was it? It looks like a grant GT wheel. Did you have to buy adapters?

The stock one is too hard to hang onto when your palms get all sweaty, and the grip placement isn´t that great. It´s a little too flexy for my tastes too...

MODERATE THIS!!!

I´d love a Grant GT wheel, but in VA if your wheel has an airbag, you cannot replace it with one that does not. Pretty much limits the options...

Hi Chad,

I looked at your ride and the interior is sweet....what have you done to your old and ugly gray plastic console ? Have you painted it or have you just completely replaced it with a custom one?....

I´m kinda tired of that ugly gray color and I was wondering if it was possible to paint it...or if not...would it be because the paint would come off too easily from the plastic console...I dont know if you get the point..my english kinda S*cks....

i painted mine to match the exterior, and all i did was wash it (yes, wash it), completely dry it, primer it, paint it, then a couple coats of clear coat for protection. looks sweet! and little to no effort or cost :-D

well i took out the whole dash and cleaned scuffed it up then i wiped it down

with paint thinner so the paint does not have fish eyes then i got some white

Interior Paint it is duarable flexable and withstands lots of heat from the sun

well i sprayed the dash about 11 coats i got it real thick so it dont scratch and

then applied 3 coats of clear this is all done with a spray gun not spray can.

for the doors i ripped off all the carpet on the doors and got new red carpet

and used adhesive for that the center consoul is out of a escort with red

interior along with the seats it was a hard process of removing the dash but

its well worth it at the end it is the sweetest interior most people

see in a escort

How? the starter solonoid is electrical, and a clutch is hydrolic in a second gen and cable driven in a first gen.
You must of left somthing out.

Well i put the starter selonoid right next to the Hydraulic piston that pushes the clutch arm that is attached to the throw bearing. The shaft inside the selonoid pushes on the arm that is attached to the throw bearing it workes just like the stock one but a lot faster i maid brackets for the selonoid to bolt up next to the arm right next to the stock piston. And i kept the stock one in there so i can take off in 1st without dumping the clutch with the selonoid.

A Very Confusing Process But It Is Worth It I Can Chirp The Tires In 3rd
And Speed Shift Hella Fast!!

*"TIP"* Bareley Any Matinence Requried With A Hi Performance Selonoid.
