Help design my car...

Ok, I race Circle track asphalt at Langley Speedway, Hampton Va. The last two years I've run a Escort in the Ucar division and a Crown Vic in the Enduro's.
Rules for the Enduro's changed to 4/6 cyl FWD, completely stock. Of course, got a Intrepid....
While I gut her out, put in a roll cage, tune-up, ect... Need ideas for a paint job. Would REALLY appreciate your guy's help on a design. Here's pics of the new Escort i'm finishing up.



NOW comes time to build the Intrepid. Got a 97 Black one that will be my Starter car.
Please help me design the paint job. Nothing too hard to do...backyard build.. I should be ready for paint within two weeks...The car is BLACK. It would be easier/cheaper if I keep the base color the same.
It'll have the 13 on the doors/roof. I don't have any sponsors yet, so any decals / graphics / Kudos will work.
Thanks for your help. I'll post pics of her when I'm done.

Lucky 13 Motorsports
I don't fail...I'm just getting good at finding out what doesn't work...

Definitely a dodge ram head on the hood. Maybe black out the tails. I think red and black would suffice.

cant wait to see this thing!!


The white black and blue mopar scheme whould be wicked, but thats pretty intense




Something like this would be sweet, you could invert the colors to keep more black




Your ford looks great, so looks like you have some painting skills!

That is awesome! I think you and Devan will have fun talking - he runs Autocross in Florida (I Think!). Boy, I'm not one for a paint scheme though. There are some really nice upgrades you can do to the car with a little work, like adding larger brakes from a 2nd gen, stiffer sway bars, etc.

Post up some pics of your car when you get a chance, we'd love to see it progress into a track car!

Looks nice! What were the tail light decals from? They look like a Ford Fusion. Love the 2nd gent headlight decals too, that looks cool lol. Awesome work. I expect to see videos of your racing!!!

That car looks AWESOME!

So, besides a roll bar and removing the glass, you're running full stock?

Stock...Stock...Stock....
Well, we all have to cheat a little. Rear sway bar from 300 Special, custom made sway bar links. Wheels are from Crown Vic, low offset = 3.45" wider stance. 4 degrees front camber, rear toe'd 1" to the right. A/C deleted. Alternator on cutoff switch. Engine mounts Eurothene filled SOLID. Springs heated to lower. ( Install in spring compressor. Bake at 450 degrees, 15 minutes until golden brown.)
Still to do: Trans= 3rd, 4th gears removed- spacers added. Spider gears elongated. Shift kit installed.
Locate JY springs from other, heavier car that fit right struts.
My Escort, 95, is made up of 9 makes/models/years but still looks stock.
And yes, the tail light decals are Ford Fusion. ( I knew I couldn't pull anything on you guys.) They don't make Intredid tail light decals. You can hardly see them in these photos, but check out the back windows....

Any rubbing issues with the Vic wheels and tires? What does the alt cut off switch get you?

Glad to hear about the urethane filled engine mounts - did you happen to take any pictures of them?

Have you considered going to autostick? you could eliminate having to remove 3rd and 4th gears then maybe, unless you are gaining strength by removing them.

How will you elongate the spider gears?

I wonder if someone here knows of springs... if you do find some that work, please post it here.

So, how stock is stock's requirement then?
