Modification Time Line
This section is an up to date time line of the Modifications I have done on the car:

I don't have pictures of some of the earliest happenings and dates are best guess but here is what I do have:

June 2010: Bought the car with 86,000 miles for about $8000 with new clutch included.

Fall 2010: bought a set of Mercury Cougar rims for winter tires. Painted them black. Painted the brake calipers Red.

Winter, Spring 2011: Painted the interior pieces blue. Don't worry, it was just a test to see if I like painted trim and I still have all the original interior pieces.

April 2011: became a member of this Forum

May 2011: Painted the stock 5-spoke Svt wheels. These are the first pictures I took of the exterior.
