Incognito27`s 2003 ZX5 Build

SO i have a thread elsewhere on the forum , but i think i will redo and make a nicer one on here for all to see in a more appropriate place . Enjoy , Give feedback , comment or flame if need be. I will keep this post up to date with everything i have received and installed.


Started out with this , Purchased rims and Tires , and Painted front Upper grill.
and shortened the Antenna





Move on to Interior changes , Pained the vent borders white , also did the corner vents and hand grip on doors





Debadged the rear , really makes it look clean , and on white clean is good. Also Nightshaded the Tail lights and front bumper blinkers.


Found a Local store that was able to order me the SVT front lower Grill , And so i modded what i and made this beauty. She Looks sooo Purdy .


Moved on to under the hood at this point , and painted the battery cover , top white , sides clean and left black , clear cloated the whole thing.




Ordered and received some new emblems from TFB designs , So i got them all around.




Painted my CAI to match my color scheme i am useing.



CLEAN ENGINE BAY!!!! Yes i got it detailed , it was in horrible shape.



Received a new front upper grill from Europe , Also new emblem for it.




Recieved a few goodies from our Friends at Massive Performance , Thanks Karl.







Installed new valve cover , and front strut bar , rear bar will get installed when i get a warmer day or spring , whichever comes first.




and lastly for the moment but not least new HVAC knobs.

The Winter i will be collecting a few things , but only work i will be doing or getting done will be mechanical , to bring the health up some more, as i am having a few small issues i need to address.

I will update as i go along and hope people have an interest in my build.

Thanks

Incognito27

Cool, a fellow Ontario member :)

I think a stainless steel shorty exhaust manifold and an SVT coolant reservoir cover would really set off the engine bay.

I whole heartedly agree. the coolant reservoir is killing me , and manifold , either steel or powdercoated white. But maybe if i find one at the right deal over winter.

I was considereing getting a steel coolant reservoir made and paint top white and sides black like my battery cover , but its still only a thought

I'll be honest, at first I like whaaaa, then I scrolled farther and it got much better lol. Your definitely improving on things, keep it up . Oh try to ditch that nasty looking stock exhaust manifold and that will clean up the whole engine bay even more. What wheels are those? I kind of like them, they remind me of Mazda or those old school tq d thrust wheels, but I know they didn't come in a four lug pattern lol

Looking good. I think you should leave your tails and side markers stock color, they will contrast nicely with the clean look you have going.

They are Eagle alloy Rims , they actually don`t make them in a 4 bolt pattern anymore. Atleast not in polished Chrome.
