Well over my vacation, I have done a few things. With help I finally got my gt spoiler on. Finally found some mx3 seats that were 80 miles away. And put on my $1.49 strut bar I was talking about from ebay. Pics below.

I have those same exact seats, and my spoiler is sitting in a box at my moms! lol, but it's the same too... hey, if you feel the steering is too high now and want it lower but don't have a tilt steering, you might wanna go to home depot and get some longer bolts and some slightly larger size nuts you can shove in there to lower the steering... I needed two nuts for every bolt and now I've got a perfect driving position... I'm telling you this because some guy I know who is an escort/protege genius had the same problem, but never thought of such a simple solution... :?

looks clean. I like it. how's that strut bar working out? My parents went out and decided to buy me the Corksport Front and Type 2 rear strut brace, I can hardly wait to get them in my hands and throw them down... Nice seats too, look really clean still.

Dude your a genius, I am having that problem, that wheel is a bit to high. I havent really got to try out the strut bar much because my damn struts are gone and when I make a sharp turn, the wheels rub, so untill I get some new struts, I cant really test it out. And the spoiler took aobut 1 hour 30 mins thanks to a friend (red97lxscort) wasnt to difficult either, if you have a problem pm me of red97lxscort. thanks everyone for teh comments.

Alpine 6-1/2" fronts?

Why does it look like you just bought a brand new valve cover and installed it right before taking this pic?

The engine bays in the cars you guys own offend me. It's a car...not an operating room. Get some dirt, leaves, mud, bird nests, paddles and dead cats in there, for crying out loud.

lol actually I havent touched mt engine for a while. for some reason it looks nicer in that pic. I polished the intake manny and valve coer a while ago and I didnt even polish it that much. You that thats clean, wait till I get my other manny and cover on from celery, he polished them to a mirror finish! Oh and those speakers are actually pioneer.

well i got one trust me you'll like it. People are like why do you have a PA in an ESCORT, I just say you dont have a clue home much fun you can have with them expecially in big citys plus no one looks for it in a car just a truck. And you have a quiet motor so you can talk goin down the road.

errr... thanks..actually, now that I've had a minute to think, it's more like two nuts each in the front and one nut and a couple washers in the back... because the steering comes down following an arc, thus the angle gives it more space in the front than the back... but anyways... I've been meaning to put on the spoiler for years (yes it's been sitting that long... shame on me...) but have had otehr issues to tend to and don't have the cash to get it painted and I've never done much body work mysalf and I'm scared to mess it up... right now, I've got no guide to follow as my car has no spoiler whatsoever.. :? <--- yeah I like this emoticon... hihi

I feel you on this one... I should post a pic of my engine bay.... I've got your leaves, twigs, small animals.... whatever you want, it's probably stuck in there... but for some reason the "Ford" on my Valve Cover is Shiny as all hell.... but the rest of the engine bay is a mess.... thanks to a leaking PS pump.
