Nice!!! I love your rims! I'd really like them on mine! (How much do you want for 'em? ) I was also looking into getting fog lights, but I couldn't find any that looked halfway decent. Yours look pretty nice though. Are they OEM? Finally, what are your mods, if any to it?

i just got the rims $200 for the rims good tires and lug nuts. not bad if i say so myself. they are not for sale though lol. the fog-lights are from autozone i have like $35 into them, wasn't hard to do and defiantly worth it, i can drive around with just them if i wanted to. mods..... besides the tinted tails, windows, de-badge, fogs, and rims, not really, full interior swap from my 97 escort, i need to lower it but that's for another time. i wish mine was black

I did a couple more things to mine, and I thought I'd share.

My exhaust recently developed a hole, so while I was getting it fixed, I just told them to cut the muffler off. Anyways, here's what it sounds like.

I also finally got my head unit and dash adapter installed. I got the parts from Crutchfield, and it was pretty straight forward. Here's what it looks like.

I haven't done much else to it than a complete detail. I'm just about done fixing the rust, which looked like this before I started working on it.



I grinded all the spots down, filled them, primed, painted, and I just need to clear coat it. I should be done this weekend.

Anyways, feedback is always good. Let me know what you think

Are they right above the rear bumper right by the wheel well, and on the trunk lid? I've seen those spots on so many escorts. Mine also had a few spots from chips on the hood, and on the back corner of the front wheel well.
