It's about time....2002greenzx3's build thread

Well I'm super bored right now so I figured why not? lol
The day I brought her home


After about 2 weeks I got Ebay projectors and a grill with clear corners

my conveniently color matched subs finally went in

Some niteshade and yellow fogs


windows tinted 20% and got a flat

chopped down my antenna

removed my rear wiper

then i finally got low and slow. installed my eibach sportlines and pro dampers, had to cut out the LCA's and replace them




then i blew up one of my subs, i have since cleaned up the wiring mess lol

installing my rear camber bolts

desided to ditch the projectors for SVT black housings

SVT spoiler painted and installed

cut out the "lunchbox"


SVT door handles and body trim color matched

picked up CSVT wheels from a friend who had them in storage

plastidipped (until i can afford to get the rash on one fixed, and get them all powdercoated)

Massive "Massacre" stress bar installed

As she is sitting as of now

and what's next

got the header and oil dipstick tube for a total of $20 at a junkyard, and picked the flex up for $15 off of wiscoGTI. just need a cat, or ORP, still haven't decided

Hopefully much more to come once the money starts coming in lol

i got mine because they were a real good deal, with brand new tires, they're unique, and because they were 16's. tires are cheaper lol.
