JC, some really fine work, you're a trooper man (that took determination and stamina), the grill looks great.

 

Thanks Gene. Yea I can be a bit tenacious at times.  Wasn't the most pleasant of task but sometimes you have to do these things.

Wow what a stellar build. I love those old Escorts. Can't wait to see how it turns out  :D

 

Thanks Steve.  I can't wait to see how it turns out either.  :)

How did you file down the p/e without damaging it?

 

I assume sanding the lens to fit  wasn't going to work out properly.

 

I couldn't reduce the lens without making it unrealistically small.  I ran this Dremel bit around inside the opening a few hundred times.

Thanks Shay & Jeff.

 

I was determined to use the Reji phot-etch grill.  The issue is the headlight opening is to small.  This would have the headlight lens setting on top of the grill when it should be recessed back into the grill.  After much tedious grinding you can see how much material needed to be removed, compare the top grill to the bottom one.  I hope the results will be worth the effort.
