hey mate... i got a fair few bits.

rear boot lip
good tail lights (lenses only)
you dont need an RS bonnet as im pretty sure theyre all the same, i do have a bonnet its multi coloured with a little ding in the front.
i have escort dials (speedo, water temp and fuel guage only)
i also have tinted windows (whole doors if you want) that are in pretty good nic. and a passenger side mirror and mirror lense and just the drivers side mirror. also a 1.6L motor, 4 speed manual box (unsure about condition) a panelvan diff, rear seat, a boot lid...

only thing is... i dont knwo how to send them interstate... and i dont knwo the correct procedure either... but i have 2 escorts 1 of which im wrecking and the other imr estoring, i can tell you where to go for parts.... itll work out cheaper for you in the long run to buy them where you live and get brand new parts than to buy mine from w.a that are second hand....

so yeah, sorry i couldnt be more help.
is it the 4 door or 2 door RS?

pics?

i think they are a touch longer and they bend down 20mm from about about 50-60mm from the front to meet up to the nose-cone where a standard bonnet is flat from front to back, as far as i can remember they go about 50-60mm past the gaurds and the standard stop flush with them.

well i must tell you that i have fibreglass moulds for both and i can tell you that the standard bonnet is longer to match the guards and the rs2000 bonnet and guards are shorter and both finish where the nose cone starts.
