Yep! Its quite fun. We had a 95 escort gt we did the same thing with. We bought it for a few hundred bucks and I sticker bombed it when I was 12. We hit a tree with it twice and my mom hit my friends car with it. escorts are tanks. lol

I don't know if I should laugh or cry but if I'd get a car like that, I'd probably be doing the same thing. lol

I AM GETTING SO TIRED OF BEING INDECISIVE. Its annoying. lol My dad was going to trade wheels, but then he blew alot of money on getting his windows tinted. Plus he would have to find another set of stock wheels for winter wheels so he doesnt want to trade. So im like hmmmmmmmmmm I think I will keep them on. I will lower the car and I was going to get a header in a couple weeks, which I figured would bump my mpg up 1 or 2 mpg. I hope. But now the header sold...so Im all like ugh. lol Ive been looking at my kona rack and trying to decide if I should keep it or not. Im thinking about making an ad for it for like 500 just to see. That would be for the rack, fairing, and 2 bike mounts. Yeah its probly not like the best deal ever, but its what I would ask since im not in a hurry to sell it. That should make my mpg go up alittle, and clean up the car. I was supposedly buying an SVT spoiler from a guy in Canada, but he isnt responding anymore so who knows. I never knew how easy debadging was, so Im going to do that soon. Oh and the foglight mod. Plus I want to get 2 red led strips, one for where my feet goes and one for where the passengers feet would go. Id wire them up so they turn on when I turn on the lights. Then Id get 2 white leds and stick them on the bottom of my door if there is room. Id wire those up to turn on when the door opens. So many mods, so little time.

I know the feeling. I'm in the same boat.

I really like the white led idea on the doors. I may be tempted to do the same thing now.

Thanks! Yeah I mentioned it to timboslice also. He brought up the fact that the door may not close. But they are thin, and if I have to I could cut into the door panel and figure something out. on ebay they sell 5 meters of LED strips starting at a penny. lol But I have to imagine they are cheap so who knows how long they would last.

Go for it. I want to see what you can do with it and maybe take some of your ideas.
