  • EDIT: Little update and PICS (which everyone likes) are on page 5 and 6



ive never made a showroom my my zx3 yet, so i thought il make one today. il start from when i bought it stock in 2007.


then i added mudflaps and my welsh flag decal on the rear windshield...

this mod i didn't want and dont like, this is what happens when i focus meets with a mailbox.

got tint and shaved the rear.


bought some aftermarket headlights then.

than i wanted some after rims, Roush Grey Rims

than lowered the car with eibach suspension kit and got winter rims


then sadly i hit couple potholes that wrecked the front suspesion and bent my winter rim badly.

that meant my new summer wheels have to be installed in this yucky snowy winter...



yeh i bought new roush rims (grey roush rims for sale), got them for a great deal at roush garage sale, i also installed roush door sills too.


over this progress ive also installed focus central long tube header, magnaflow exhaust and CAI.
thanks for looking, and comments r welcome, good or bad.

thanks everyone for good comments, no i bought the white rims for a steal at Roush. right now i have 2 pairs white and grey. i feel awesome now brad, if u want full resolution i can send u the full size through email.
future mods r to get my jdm lip kit painted and installed (very rare lip kit) and paint side moldings/mirrors. Save a lot for supercharger. and im working on my custom interior dash right now.
what would u guys think of black oem hood on the car?
also whats ur input to make the car look better?
i can't do much to engine since its an auto, it will only change to manual when the tranny brakes

Looks really nice. I would stick with your current hood. I say paint the handles and get a euro grille and black headlights.

il edit the pics, one pic is posted twice, its supposed to show aftermarket headlights. euro grille is a must, the lower one is euro, brought it over with me this summer from Wales. what a hassle.lol

its fixed, aftermarket headlights i have now r these...


but the light they give out r horrible, im thinking of buying my friend's broken headlights off him, he has euro headlights with eyebrows. one has cracked plastic screen part.

Color match the mirror caps, and the black bump guards on the sides. Your car Makes me want to have my EAPs powder coated white before I get tires for them.

you should powder coat them white. im not sure but u might be the only person with white EAP's then. it would look awsome. mirror caps will be done once temperatures get above 40-50 again. side moldings and jdm lip kit painted in summer.

i wont color match headlights, don't like it. the only color i would paint headlights r black. to me painting them to color match looks cheap. don't like it on the Fit, corvette and any other car that has them.
