what u mean get it built? sorry im a bit of a lostie rite now. id take it apart but im not very confident in putting it together again. *shrugs* only time will tell. when i post up a new thread named CAR IS DEAD then u know what happened hahahaha.

it would take a while for me to get it done and i probably won't do it anytime soon. i guess this is a job that has to be done by myself .

thanks

I'd take everyones advice and buy a later model car. Everything you want to do I've been there and done that and it's not worth doing to an EA. I look back at what I've spent on mine and just sigh.....

If your gonna spend a few grand, piss off the EA and get at least an ED.....once you drive one you'll realise how many improvements ford made over the EA. They're just......BETTER lol! Plus then you won't need a respray or an engine build cause hopefully you will buy one that has good paint and a good motor!! :P

yeah i know what u mean, but i like this car, and want to keep it for a lonnnnng time. i doubt ill even sell it since noone is going to buy an EA anyway, migth as well keep this fix it for 2000-4000 then spend 10000 to get a new car and do that up. i doubt anyone here would want to buy an EA. i know there are way more better cars then the EA, but i just like the EA =) i guess im the only one tooo blind to see. ah wells. ill get another car, but to get from A-B while fixing this up. ^_^ thanks all

Hmmm... you like an EA... So put some wanky C Pillar vents on an ED, voila! EA!
