  1. Sorry I don't know what happened! Here you go! http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/130108_0006.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/130108_0004.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/130107_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/130107_0002.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/130107_0001.jpg Sorry about that, hopefully these will stay.
  2. I was going through my phone and found pics that my wife took that I didn't know she did. So heres the pics I didn't know I had! I did some work under the hood today. I polished the intake manifold, and intake pipe. While I was doing that I took the time rerunning the intake pipe turning it into a true cold air intake. I also polished the strut bar and cleaned up the whole compartment. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130107_0001.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130107_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130107_0002.jpg Today I also cleaned the car since it was so pretty and 50 degrees Ferenheit. I also installed my new rear mudflaps, and tinted my taillights. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130108_0004.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130108_0006.jpg
  3. Was out working on the car today since I'm havin problems with the Silver car starting. I was able to get my mud flaps on the car, and finish some of the interior and cleaning it up and detailing the interior. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130108_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130108_0002.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130108_0001.jpg This is the interior. Still have some gauges to install and a new headliner and stereo and speakers, before fully complete. As for the exterior work, I ran out of daylight to take those pics. Will take pics tomarrow.
  4. Planning on respraying both. As for the rear brakes, the brake swap is a little costly, even if I go to the junk yard and find a GT for the swap. Future plans yes, just no funds right now.( Buying a house)
  5. Well today wasn't as cold and I was feeling a little bored and also feeling better. I decided to get out today and get a few updated pics of the two cars. Tell me what ya think! Oh yeah I'm aware of the flat tire on the red car and both cars need a new paint job. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0001.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0002.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0004.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0005.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/130101_0006.jpg
  6. Looking good! I need to do this to my car!
  7. Happy Holidays everybody!!! I'm glad to be here! I've been in the hospital since my last post and haven't been able to get anything car wise done! Pneumonia is a bitch!! LOL! When I'm healthy again I'll be back with updates. Have a happy new year and I'll see you then.
  8. Thanks! I'm a big escort fan of all sorts, and have always wanted a Cosworth.
  9. They are both gonna get a respray sometime next fall. Don't have the funds right now!
  10. Yeah they are based off of the Aussie Ford Lasers.
  11. I've been real busy these past couple months with rebuilding the red cars motor and doing an engine swap with the silver car. The red car rebuild is complete as for the motor, still have cosmetics to work out and I'm waiting on the new wheel to come in the post. Here it is now ugly as hell, but running good! http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/P040412_1949.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0001.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0004.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0005.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0006.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0007.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0009.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/120819_0008.jpg My buddy and I finished the rebuild in about 2hrs on a saturday. Got the timing all done 2wks later and now she runs beautifully. http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/121204_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/121204_0002.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20GT/121204_0001.jpg This is it all back together. My new wheels and a new paint job will set this car off. The silver escorts engine back in October threw a rod bearing and seized up, so I had to replace the motor with a less mile motor which I got for free from my boss. It took me a week to take bothe motors out and swap everything I needed for the new one from the old one. All in all it took me 2 wks to finish the job. Though temperary because of the BP motor that is slated for it, This swap went smoothly and it runs awesome. This is the donor car: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120907_0001.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120907_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120907_0002.jpg Donor motor out: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120916_0008_zpsb9c1585d.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120916_0007_zps650e5703.jpg Bad motor: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/t-boneengine.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120916_0006_zps493da87e.jpg Bad motor out: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120927_0001.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120927_0002.jpg Good motor in: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/121003_0002.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/121003_0001.jpg Car all back together again: http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120729_0003.jpg http://i879.photobucket.com/albums/ab355/scort4life/Escort%20Pony/120729_0005.jpg Thats what I've been up to lately, What ya think?
  12. Nice looking car, I'm jealous! Cant find a nice looking car for that price here! Now slap a set of deep dish rims and stretched tire on it and lower it a little, and you'll have one nice show and go car. Nice!
  13. The car is looking good. Congrats!
