I posted it for sale on here...
Welcome to the club.
Sold it today... to Carvana.
How much they give u? looks like it was clean.
Installed the turn signal pod with the fog switch I pulled out of the Escort sport into the column and wired it up to the existing fogs I had bought for the car.
My friend told me I was crazy since I already had it wired to a switch I mounted underneath the steering column. I told him I agree but I guess I'm anal about using as many factory parts on the car as I can! LOL!
Gotta repaint the rear plastic. Had a trunkful of junk bouncing around back there for months......
I tried putting GT rear seats in it, only to find out that while the mounting points are the same, the seat backs are actually wider than the wagon seats....
If you want a nice bucket seat that bolts in look for a set out of a '91/'92/'93 Mazda MX-3. Make sure you also get the seat rails.
The MX-3 uses the same chassis as the Escort does so all the mount points are the same.
If you happen to find an MX-3 GS(V6 version of the MX-3) snag all 3 brackets that mount to transmission, engine/trans actual mounts, bracket that mounts to passenger side body/frame. Belly band/trans crossmember and engine bay wire loom. This will give you the means to be able to swap in a KLZE V6 engine.
Also, if you do happen to get lucky and come upon a GS in the yard see if the lip will fit onto an Escort bumper. Right now I'm leaning towards a Uni lip that will fit on a mid 80's Integra but if I can find one that fits better on the car with minimal modifications I'd love to find it.
