Yea you could do that, How far do you want to go? I'd do the mechanical end 1st. Throw on svt spindle's or use '05 spindle's & add svt front brakes. Mod the zetec w/ a svt header, intake & cams, do a clutch & then redo the interior. Scuff the body lightly & clear coat it & drive it.

I don't know about the svt stuff right off I just want to get it mechanically sound replace all worn parts and poly bushings. Stage 2 clutch to make sure I won't have to do it again if I do build it a little. I hate white cars and it needs more than a new top coat there's some rust that's getting addressed and I haven't decided on the black or a charcoal grey color. Eventually I want coil overs body stiffening minor weight reduction like light weight battery ac delete spare tire delete unless it's a long trip. Maybe remove the back seats. Definitely getting projectors and hids led tails was thinking about a nice stereo setup but that's heavy so maybe just a nice CD player and high end speakers. Steeda short throw racing seats. Not sure how far I'm taking it at the moment. But I sure the hell don't want rice. Want a clean performance look with the balls to back it up

I don't have the slightest clue. The first thing I learned to do in cars was change the oil and tires. Second was stereo systems. I've been doing them since I was 13 so I'm fussy with them and this just pisses me off. Hopefully can get something done to it tomorrow. Probably start by taking the stereo out of it and I'll do it all correctly when the time comes.
