so this afternoon, James92 comes over to my apt and we deiced to rip apart my 1993 Escort GT. well all hell was happening. while James was taking shit off the engine, im on the backend of the car ripping (literally) the plastic panels in the trunk and pulled out the tail lights. Meanhile, James is up front unbolting the valve cover, ripping the headlights, corner lights and whatever he can pull off before it got dark. right before we decided to call it quits, we decide to tackle the dash. well we got a bit pulled off (and having hella lots of fun doing it). James was "learning about his car" as he said while unbolting shit left and right on the passenger side, while i was cussing at the gauge cluster trying to get the sucker out (broke the clear cover on it). well i couldnt get the bitch out, but i did have lots of fun and James got to "learn" about how to take stuff off in case he needs to on his 92 Escort GT. i had fun and so did James.

we got quite a bit taken off, with more to come off this week hopefully. i will post the stuff in the For Sale section once i get everything cleaned up good.

OOO forgot to say...boy was the GT engine pretty fuct up. oil in one of the cylinders (which James is think from a gasket that wasnt put on good) and whoever did the rebuild job, did a piss poor job said James. he showed me and i agreed. oh well. it was a fun and exciting 2 hours of learning today. :-D

lol yeah it was. the engine part he was talking about was when the valve cover was pulled off I could see oil in the number 4 cylinder spark plug hole. and when we pulled the cover completely off the gasket was sticking out of where it was supposed to be.
Also I got the throttle body off and noticed a ALOT of gunky nasty oil inside the upper intake plenum. I don´t know how it could get in there unless it was some how getting into the intake tube. Like he said whoever rebuilt that engine did a piss poor job and I hope the shop that redid my heads didn´t do that horrible of a job. Anyway, yeah it was a great time, and educational cause I plan on tearing my dash apart this summer to wash and paint it. Thanks Brian ;-) :cool:
