    since a few people have posted up their projects that they are working on, i figured i may as well decide to share mine with you all too. i decided to name mine White Trash. the car, for those that dont know, is a 1992 Ford Escort GT....YEAH ITS A DOMESTIC! here we go:

    Day 1

    today, for the hour i worked on it, i didnt get much done because it was cold, drizzling and to make it worse i got a cold and i dont have a garage to work in yet. but today i decided to clean some stuff out of it that was left by the previous owner (sleepergtx). i came across a few items i may either throw out or try to sell...who knows yet/ heres a few pics:

    this pic is a pic of stickers that were on the car that i scraped off. they were some police and fire department stickers, a Ford logo sticker and a sticker from FEOA.net which stands for Ford Escort Owners Association. i too decided to give them the bird like everyone else does:

    [​IMG]

    this next pic is shit i found in the hatch. found everything from screws to corner lamps...all kinds of shit/trash:

    [​IMG]

    this next pic is the rear cargo cover and some panels:

    [​IMG]

    the hatch after it was cleaned out:

    [​IMG]

    now this next pic, i am trying to figure what the fuck James was thinking when he did this. ima have to get the speaker covers out of my spare parts Escort GT and replace these:

    [​IMG]

    Pioneer cd player. it plays cds pretty darn well too as i was playing a cd i had while cleaning up:

    [​IMG]

    inidglo gauge brightness adjuster (?). ima re-run it somewhere else:

    [​IMG]

    and lastly, the stuff that was in the hatch which consisted of intake parts, a spare window seal, and whatever other trash i found in thereL:

    [​IMG]


    that was all i was able to do today. i wont and still isnt feeling well so not much got accomplished. i got alot of cleaning and alot of planning left to do. so far so good i guess but i got a long ways to go....

    I did it because the speaker inserts and foam shit on it muffled the speakers. Of course mounting them with only two screws didn't help either. :p

    I didn't feel like spending another 20 bucks on brackets to make em fit. lol

    plans are:

    -turbo. ima run a modest 8-10 psi daily and up it to 15-17 psi at the track. i want no less than 200whp and with that goal it should be no problem at all.
    -full coilover suspension
    -17" rims. black rims with a polished lip is what i am looking to get
    -primered in white...hence why its called Project: White Trash
    -i MAY get a body kit for it. not sure yet tho.

    that is basically what i want to do but knowing me, plans will change. so many options. any ideas are welcome and no i will not: 1)drive it off a cliff 2)get a Honda or 3)take it to the junkyard!

    Just a suggestion as to the aesthetics, I am a huge fan of black/polished rim lips also! I think that particular car would benefit immensly from shaving some of the imperfections from the body. A clean bodykit, and shaved door stops/ridges would make it look a million times better with those wheels! Don't you think?

    In all seriousness Brian, I highly suggest you get the suspension taken care of asap. That aspect of the car went down hill from when I bought it originally and I never had time to put my struts/springs on. but that would have been my first thing.

    Day 2-ish and 3 updates!!

    Day 2-ish

    day 2-ish consisted of taking off the washer LEDS as posted here. on that day i forgot to add my other "mod". after taking the washer hoses off from there mounting points under the hood, i decided to re-route them to make a "super soaker" kinda thing going on. what i did was take the house and squeeze it in between the headlight and corner lamp as pictured below:

    [​IMG]

    after getting that situated pretty good, i drained the washer fluid out and then filled the fluid reservoir with some water. when i pull the lever back for the washer fluid, it squirts water out like a squit gun. pic below:

    [​IMG]

    another pic to show how far it squirts out:

    [​IMG]

    i need to adjust it to make it shoot out farther, but its a cool little mod to do and has been a signature mod of mine for years.

    Day 3

    day 3 consisted of doing some cleaning and replacing the gauge bezel back to a stock colored one. pics and info below.

    below is the blue gauge bezel that came with the car:

    [​IMG]

    i replaced that with a stock black one. i also took all the wires pictured and moved them around to kinda clean it up some:

    [​IMG]

    the center section with the radio with blue piece:

    [​IMG]

    after with black piece and moved wires:

    [​IMG]

    i also cleaned out the interior a bit and armor-alled it. :) i also cleaned the outside a bit and took some new pics. the car looks rather good all nice and shiney:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    thats all i did. its looking a little better now and i got tons more stuff to do to it. i told my friend here that i am kinda putting it back to stock before i really start modifying it...LOL. anyways thats all for now. enjoy all...

    Looks cool. :thumbsup: Ok....now before you all jump on me asking why the fuck i put a blue bezel in my red car for, I was going to redo the carpet and cloth in blue, and then paint the rest of the dash in dark blue, light blue and white.




    I want my blue bezel back. :)

    I need that squirter to squirt all of the low lifes that live in the town I work in. They have no respect for anyone or their belongings.

    Oh yeah, in case anyone was wondering why I didn't put the vents back in, I was going to rip out the heater piping to the dash (I only used the floor vents anyway) and mount gauges in those holes for my 1.8 BPT :D

    Looks good Brian. I wish I had a project car. :(

    That washer/squirtgun thing is cool. My friend had a 70's volvo wagon, and he turned his rear window washer around so it would squirt people he drove by. We shot all kinds of people on sidewalks and stuff. Makes driving around town fun.
