Recommended Posts

If the van doesn't sell, been thinking about doing some mods to it in the future because its a very good example, a couple of minor touch ups and it will be mint, need some answers to some questions first:

 

What rear bumper will fit on an escort mk6 van??

 

Which sideskirts will fit on the van, 3 or 5 door??

 

How hard/easy is a one piece rear door to fit?? can i even get a one peice rear door for the mk6 van??

 

I'm guessing mk6 wing mirrors will be a straight swap??

 

What's needed to lower the van, say 40mm??

 

Whats the best engine swap to do??

 

:cheers:

Neither as the van is longer but you can chop them and make them fit or these

Straight swap

Front struts from any hatch rear needs the beam modding or the leaf springs decambered

 

Whats the best engine swap to do??

Td engine easiest best get a doner

Petrol engine better again get a doner car tis what i did

Keep the normal van rear bumper bits, looks much better IMO!

 

Iv dropped my van and it handles great, but shakes you to peices, but thats mainly because the roads down here are shocking!!

 

Iv fitted 3dr mk5 side skirts to my van, had to chop them in half and make them fit basically, but your pretty good at making things fit going by your last escort project!

 

Id say go for it, slammed escort vans look wicked... If they havnt got stupid body kits on :)

Got to agree i do like the look of a slammed van, no daft bodykits, if and when i do do something to it it will be nice and subtle, got to start earning the pennies now :thumb:
