Purchcased 2003 SVT today for $1000

Looked like a fun summer project.
Going to pick it up after work.

Silver with 17" 15 spoke. Has some kind of body kit that's not bad looking. Everything works, runs and drives. Clean as can be.

Hate those ugly seats but I'll swap them out in time.

Fun starts tomorrow. Already have H&R Sportlines and 5mm spacers that I'll setup this weekend.

Glad to be here though. Really helps with the research.
Will add pics soon.

Deron

114000 on the body, 80000 on the engine.
I restored the headlights this weekend and will post before and afters tomorrow. Crystal clear now and so easy to do.

1st thing would be going a t/b, t-stat housing, tensioners.....I'd pass on lowering springs as your just asking to ding up the header....No need for spacers. btw H&R used to have a sport cup kit, while Eibach has the sportline's.....Best to swap out the struts/shocks, for Koni yellows.....

Rear springs are installed. One of the original rear springs was broken.....in half. Front springs going in this weekend. Just got a new lower radiator support to replace the rotted one. And just ordered the MagnaFlow direct fit exhaust for $407 shipped...........to replace the rusted out, leaky, stock one.

The tough part is going to be the front wheel bearings. I think I might just pay to have them done.

I watched a lot of YouTube first but in short: I wet sanded them with 400, 600, 1000 and 2000 grit. Then polished them with white Colgate. Then waxed over with good ole Turtle Wax. I didn't use any power tools and they are like new now. If you watch a handful of YouTube videos, you get good tips from each one. I will post pics in the next message.

Not sure how this will appear but there should be a before, after and full face picture of my headlight job.

OK. Did the front H&R Sportline Springs yesterday and the stance is awesome. Looks perfect and aggressive. Feels firmly planted. I did get a new check engine light last night on the way home, so we will see what that's about. I didn't mess with the ABS sensors so who knows. I still need to put on the spacers but I'm a little worried because there isn't much gap left to play with. I don't know why I post these without pictures but I'll post tomorrow.
