I just typed out everything i will be doing to the car over the next 6-12 months but my internet went out for 2 seconds after typing for an hour and just lost everything haha anyways i will be doing loads of mods to my 2007 zx3 2.0 that i believe alot of others would enjoy and some that i don't think many have thought of or actually gone through with it, my favorite and most anticipated being the 5 lug mazda 3 hub swap as well as rear disc brake conversion on mk1/1.5 foci. However i will be doing a knock off cossi IM first as my tumble flaps are making alot of horrible sounds and i am ordering one as i type, i will post my step by step clean up of the manifold and installation hopefully by next week, after which will be the mazda 5 lug hub swap!
hopefully the step by step process will help others that may want to do this swap, not only to have disc in the rear instead of drums but to widen the wheel selection by having a 5x114.3 lug spacing (which probably about 80% of 5 lug vehicles have this spacing) i hope i can offer some useful information to the rest of the FF community with my build, if anyone has any questions or comments feel free to ask, i'm a pretty easy going guy and love to talk anything and everything cars, not just foci, and i really enjoy helping others out anyway i can, im no tom but ive been working on cars for about 8 years now and have worked on a wide variety of vehicles new and old and have solved and repaired a wide array of problems (probably my biggest build was restoring a '76 toyota FJ40 Landcruiser...awesome truck!, and rebuilding the engine on another '77 toyota FJ40...would only go 15mph before i got my hands on it) Anyways enough blabbering, i will be posting pictures of the car before and after this afternoon or tomorrow as well as step by step pictures and explainations along the course of my build. i hope i can help some of you out and again feel free to talk if you have any questions or just want to ramble, im very approachable haha hope to hear from you guys soon! and i hope you enjoy my build. there will be more detailed information later as i type the list of extreme and minor mods i will be doing over the next 6-12 months
