the 03zx3 resurrection

This is my cars build pics to date. its had a hard life and with only 105K on the clock. its time to do it right. Basic information.... Its a 2003 zx3 hatch back with the 2.3L duratec. It came to be with no suspension to speak of engine codes and the worst attempt at a re spray i have ever seen. after some replacement parts i managed to clear the engine codes and some more goodies came from ford racing to put the SVT performance package suspension in to replace the non existent ones. now that i got the ok from emissions its time to do the most intense body work to date. (its going to be black with ghost rally stripes). As i get further along ill try to keep it up to date. Thanks for reading.
reading.

Ask around on the regional forum for your area! There usually is someone willing to offer a garage up for a day or two.
