Talking ford escort (extremly modded) in progress

hi guys, im ant im new on here, iv been modeling for about a year now, some of your mods are amazing, i was routing around this morning an i found an old ford escort that i used to have wen i was about 10, its in a pretty bad way as you wil see from the pics, i have big big plans for this here they are.....

- big chrome rims
- lower a bit more at the back
- big install 5 speakers
- full rollcage
- new engine
- turbo !!
- remove the pillers from the doors
- suicide doors ..... if i can find a way of doing it lol
- i dont think this has ever been done but im goin to attempt to widen the whole car by 20mm!! ( if anyone has done this could you post some pics please )
- flip flop bonnet
- flip paint job, purple to gold wiv a hint of pink
- if it works out i mite even do a wide body kit

Out of repsect can you please spell words out correctly. I dont mean that everything has to be perfect, but it needs to be understandable. We have members from all over the world whose native tongue is something other than English. Thanks.

This should be an interesting project. Im interested to see what you do with it.
