Mods Are Moving Pretty Slow

Cash has been a little tight. I own a house in another state, the renters tore the place up and hauled ass. Im making the mortgage and trying to get the place ready to rent again.

My body color door handles are still on backorder, its been two months now.

Havent had time to find a shop to paint the side moldings/hatch strip/stock mirrors.

Ive been looking for a used set of 1.3-1.5 lowering springs, think I will go with the SVT springs instead. All four at $100.

I need to order the coolant cover and intermittant wiper switch, I drive by the Ford Dealer twice a day, cant seem to remember to stop in.

These are my "winter mods" I hope to accomplish by spring.

Ive had my ZX3 since June 1st and just hit 3000 miles on it, Im selling the Mack Daddy so the ZX3 will get alot more work.

Well take your time. Don't rush it. I think it's better to do mods slowly instead of all at once.

Take your time, first things first. Priorities before the car. My show car took 2 years before it was completely done, but it was worth it. I've got all the parts I REALLY wanted and not what I had to settle for. It's now goin' on 1 year for my race car, and I'm only half way done due to me wanting this project to turn out right. Good luck!
