Hi guys!
I've ordered my second red UT Ford Escort Cozzie for a great price. What I'm going to do now is to customize one of them.
Here's an indication of what I'm going to do (PS job):

Before:


After:


This is about an indication of what I'm going to do. I don't think the headlights are going to be like that because I found a way to improve them without those ricey paint patterns on them.
I'll be posting more soon!

Blast... I thought the deadline was November 1... :eek:hmy
Can I still submit it for next year's custom MOTY? :wink
O yeah, you can move this topic to the custom section in that case if you want.

What I'm going to do about this model:
-Different rims, from Peugeot 206 WRC, Solido
-Paint black
-Change headlights (I couldn't remove the paint on the backside of the headlights so I think I'm going to make it like this anyway - unless you guys have some suggestions for them...)
-Bigger exhaust
-Ford logos in front and rear removed, FORD lettering on the hood and above licence plate holders instead.
-Rear lights painted clear dark red
-Red interior details
-Carpeting
-Seatbelts
-Tinted rear windows
-Maybe some detailing in the engine
-NO GIGANTIC SUBWOOFER SOUND SYSTEM :lol

Thanks for the comments guys! I think i'm going to schratch build the headlight clear covers, as the originals don't look good at all :tempted

No problem Darrick, now I have more time to finish it :lol I'll just submit it for next year's CMOTY :badidea

What coïncidence :giggle
Sounds cool what you're doing, and the yellow paint thing is a VERY good idea! Thanks! :cheers
I might leave the rear wing off too, I'll have to see how it looks.
What I've done till now:
-Painted interior details red (part of the seats, door inside details, racing "outline stripe" on top of the steering wheel, "leather" shifter cover)
-Carpeting in the interior (made out of a sort of thin foam, looks very good)
-Made the turn indicators clear (got rid of the orange paint in the inside, painted an orange dot for the bulb + back side of the light silver)
-rear lights: clear red paint over it
-got rid off the Ford logo in the front of the car
-exhaust escavation in the body enlargened
-bigger exhaust

Planning:
-Paint the car black
-Open the air intake between the headlights
-Remove spoiler (but I'll do it that way that I can put it on afterwards if I don't like it)
-tint rear windows
-put white Solido Pug 206 WRC wheels under it
-Paint headlights clear yellow (Thanks again Ben! :happy )

After these modifications, I hope it'll look kickass! :giggle
