Texas Troublemaker Here

Postby techguy985 - May 14th, 2017, 1:20 am

Joined the forum to get some information about some projects I have in mind.

I'm 16 and live near Houston. The 2011 Ford Escape Limited is my first car, which I just paid off. I've put about 2000 miles on it in the 2 months since I got it, and it works for what I need.

Some of the projects I'm planning on doing are:
Mini D2S headlight retrofit, installing Morimoto XB led fog lights, and upgrading everything else to LED. I drive too much at night in the country to be dealing with these dismal halogen reflector lights.
Upgrading speakers and stereo. I like my country music to be loud and clear.
Plasti dip on all the chrome. I don't like fancy things, especially chrome.
And probably a few other suspension and electrical modifications when I get the cash.

If there was a Guinness world record for "guy who's biggest on DIY" it would go to me. The old man's been teaching me the stuff since I was 4. I do my own projects to save money as well as because I believe that doing something yourself means it will be done right. We only outsource the stuff that requires a lift (some moron built a small garage at the place).

I'll check it out though.
2011 Ford Escape Limited 302A
Every option save for hybrid, navigation, sport appearance, and 4x4.
Moon and Tune package, dual zone climate control, 6 spoke alloy wheels, side step bars, whatever else they had available. Paid for with hard work and dedication.
