For those looking for an aftermarket faceplate:
$59.95 and $20 off if you buy a receiver.
"Important Note: When installing an aftermarket radio, you will need to run the provided antenna extension cable and speaker extension harness from the Ford rear tuner/amp unit to your new receiver."
Not so for the ZX2. But you should buy the adapter instead of cutting factory wires to connect to the new receiver.
I havn't seen or heard from any ZX3 owners out there. Drop me a line.
Check out this ZX3 from Sony Xplod:
New Parts Page. It has about everything:

Before I had the ZX2 Escort I had several motorcycles including this 94' CBR 600 F2.
Each link will direct you to the approtiate page where you will find pictures,links and modifications for your ford ZX2 escort. I made mods to my bikes but there are no step by steps for them, sorry. It's been 4 years since I had the bike. The Escort page has Car modifications like Trunk release, grill install, repairs, Sony Stereo install, and more. As I make updates they will be listed below and links to take you there directly.
If you get a chance drop me a line and any pics you have of your car or bike.
August 22, 2001:
Added Valve cover air breather. Painted drums and calipers. Replaced bake pads and shoes.
June 22, 2001:
Added new Links. This weekend I hope to make a few mods. I'll let you know how the go on Monday. Paint, Lights etc.

Well I decided to get the Sony Explod Deck. I installed it today and installed 4 more speakers. The pics will be up tomorrow.
I found a link to my old web site that has pics of my last bike, 94' CBR 600F2. It has been 4 years since I had it and I miss driving a bike. Maybe someday soon I'll get another.
.(no longer available)

Here is a nice pic e-mailed to me today for those who think a factory ZX2 can't make the 200km speed mark. As the picture shows it has reached 180km and still room to move if it was not for the speed governor. The note attached assured me it was on a closed highway with Police permission and that it was a factory unmodified engine. I hope to see more of this guys pics. *

Today I installed the power trunk button in the glove compartment. It went pretty easy. I seen the mod on another page but the picture was different then my wiring. It must have been a different year? Anyway it was a cheep mod, $5 bucks,cdn, and I can open the trunk now with the car on or off, my remote is deactivated when in the ignition. Check it out.
I also installed a mesh grill in the front lower and 2 upper air intakes. It cost about $15 bucks,cdn, and 2 hours labour. I'm very happy with the results. Check it out.
Both mods will be posted as soon as I fix the upload software from my camera.
I noticed the questbook is not working properly. I'll have it fixed soon so please leave me a message, link or mod I can try. I'm in the process of making my own air intake design. It will be a simple change over so that I can use the factory design in the winter in harsh conditions.

Yesterday I removed #2 resonator. This is a cost free way to improve the performance. It is not my mod but I like it. I don't know how much power increase it gives but it did remove any hesitation during acceleration. It is a little louder but it sounds good so it's worth it. Check it out.

I now have the funds to get a new deck. The two I'm looking at is the Sony cdx750 or the Clarion DX515. I'll post the pics next week..
May 24, 2001
I had the winter tires taken off and the summer on. Prediators. Not too bad.This is the second season for them. They're not a smooth ride. Next Friday I'll have the new ones put on and an the alignment done.
