My New Toy!

Well I work for a guy who rebuilds light salvage vehicles. So I just picked myself up an '00 ZX3 from the insurance auction.


Here's the before and after pics.

Saturday:







Monday:






Spent the day sunday driving a few hours to pull the parts from racefocus' svt.

real cool guy to deal with!


all in all the total cost purchase and parts were just under $1300.


yeah I know it still needs a driver fog light and marker light. I'm gonna pick those up from a local yard this week.

Nice work

I have a wings west kit off of a sedan I haven't fixed yet I'll be putting on (once I get the proper rear for the zx3) and in the spring I'll be putting on a full new exhaust headers and all. intake, throttle body, performance plugs and wires.
eventually throwing in a manual tranny.

and maybe get some leather skins made and replace the cloth seats.
