    Here's a pic of what we're working with, probably not going to worry much about making it look better this season, so to anyone watching, it'll just be a beat to hell Escort with horribly peeling clearcoat. :loco:

    Exhaust is here... Thought it was just going to be a cat-back, but apparently it's the whole thing? Nice surprise. Already has an o2 bung in it, so i don't have to worry about that. The fart cannon is a bit bigger than i was expecting, though. :p

    Headers, KLDE injectors, PS Delete belt. Not entirely happy with the Ebay headers. (DUH!) Welds look fine, and they're solid enough, but the insides right past the flanges don't line up too well, probably not helping flow. Either way, they're better than stock, and less than half the weight, so i'll live with them for now. For $140 shipped, i'm not unhappy.

    MFactory LSD was just delivered 30 minutes ago, my AWR front motor mount is here, HEI mod is here, and my rod-ended endlinks are here. :D

    Pics to follow.

    Old crusty motor should be out of the Escort by Monday morning, will clean and paint bay in preparation of new motor being dropped in.

    Do do doooooo...


    Disgustingly dirty engine bay. Pretty sure the crank seal had gone out on this motor before i pulled it. It was leaking everything, everywhere. Can't believe it still ran. There was a half inch of oil gunk build up on the passenger side of the bay. :tard:

    Test fit... suspension seems to be fitting well.

    Cleaned and masked off. Notice the large patches of red paint just missing, exposing what looks to be bare metal underneath. This is where the biggest oil build-ups were. :lol:

    Looking pretty good. I'm starting to wish I had painted my engine bay too, while I had the motor out. Eh, if I pull it again to do the oil pump, maybe I'll give it a shot.

    What'd you use?
     
  16. concealer404

    concealer404 Skanky Escorts LLC

    Answered in the chatbox, but just in case anyone else wants to know....

    1) 1 bottle of undiluted Purple Power for cleaning (used maybe half the bottle)
    2) 10-15 shop rags for cleaning
    3) 1 roll of auto painter's tape
    4) 2 cans of Rustoleum "rusty metal" grey primer
    5) 3 cans of Rustoleum Semi-gloss black


    Did the whole thing for about $40. Need to get another can of primer, and probably 2 cans of black to do the fender wells and the wiper cowl. Just wanted to get the bay ready to start putting things back in it.



    Chassis harnesses are tucked, too! XD

    Bored and something came back to me that i had thought about awhile back....

    Which of these front ends? Keep in mind any of them will come accompanied by a rather large splitter.

    I can also somewhat easily fit anything else that's a BG chassis. Includes Familia GTR/GTX if i can find them, Protege, Tracer, 323, etc.

    YSOSLO is the word, beotch

    Looks like you're making great progress! As far as front end looks go, I'm diggin' the pre-facelift TX3 Laser...especially if you throw some big old school rally fogs in the openings that look like they're made for just that.
