Might mention my past rides, which gave me the reason why I got this car. I love working on cars, but being a mechanic and going home to do something on your car everyday sucks. My first project was my fathers old 94 escort wagon which I had a test pipe, k'n filter, msd coil pack, strut bar, 2.0L throttle body and maf plus a HO header modified to fit. Then I moved onto a 94 Escort GT while I had the wagon as my dd. The GT was transformed into a GTX replica with a Vj-11 turbo, corksport goodies, HKS goodies, modified Ksport coilovers and a bunch of other stuff. I drove it for a while until I was told I was going to be a first time father in which the car was stripped, parted and scrapped. The wagon was taken off the road after so I could have a fun dd, which included Eibach springs, bigger swaybars front and rear mx3 enkei rims. Oh, and I took the entire klde out of it and fit it into the wagon... Well I ran out of time and had to scrap it sadly after having it on kijjii for months in hope some-one could finish it but no. I then had a GSR fall into my lap at work, long story short it needed a lot of work and the customer was tired of it..... I bought it for $250, dropped another grand into it and unloaded it for $3000. I loved that car, but I was to become a father again. Now, a baby seat is ok in a two door.... But two is a little much, hence why I bought this georgeous machine.

Thanks. They are 17s. Similar design but smaller than yours. I got a really good deal on them brand new and couldn't resist. They really helped the look of the car imo

UPDATES, woohoo. Yes the exhaust cut out is crooked, yes it will be fixed, yes the exhaust hanger is stretched because I was rushed at work and needed it out of the bay. My welds, leftover bends from my works old pipe bender. All in all, cost me $35. Installed the k'n filter, headlight and marker bulbs. Tried tinting my headlights, loved the look and I could see jus fine with them on but I decided to take them off because it started to peel at the bottom.
