This is the Futura and what she looked like when i first got her about 20 months ago. Everything was stock! As you can see in the process of removing the wind deflectors ( left over adhesive in the pictures ) and have put in new Pioneer speakers front and rear at this point.

So in the past few months I've made some modifications and improvements! These include:

- Hubcaps off and freshly painted wheels
- Mudflaps removed
- Lowered on Super Low King Springs all round
- New Altezza Tail Lights
- Two new mesh grills for the front I managed to make up myself
- New 2.5" straight through catback exhaust

Here's some photo's of the new Mods! Let me know what you think. :)

Many many things are on the list! I'm too scared to make a full list! haha But in the next few months i'm looking at:

- 2 New Tyres
- Blue LED's all through the dash, floor, boot, map lights and door light.
- Clear repeater lenses
- Black on white number plates instead of the horrid clashing yellow.
- Extractors/high flow catalytic converter

Lets see how I go!

Looking good, I actually don't mind those Altezza tail lights with the green. Maybe some rims in the future? The height at the moment is too bad, definitely better than stock.
I also posted up a pic in relation to your question on ride height on my build thread.

B Bear:Thanks, I really like the Altezza lights with the green too. One of the better colours for them I think! Defiantly looking at some 19" rims in the future. Just have no idea on what I want yet, and I want to take my time in choosing the right set. :)

95.ef.fairmont: Thanks very much! I'm from Port yes! Are you? I think I might've seen your car drive past once, though it may not have been you. I had a look at your pictures. Looks very clean. Do you know of any shows or runs around here, any you go to? We should catch up on a run sometime if you do that kind of thing!

I got some front throw over seat covers, red, just to protect the seats for now and some new floor mats, dark grey, as there was none except for a horrible rubber one for the driver. Eventually I want to get some Tickford mats for it. That's a little way down on the to-do list though.

More pictures coming soon!

Sweet. Should defiantly catch up sometime then. I'd love to take a look at your car. I got pulled over on saturday night at around 2am in Port! Random breath test. Checked the car out but didn't pick me up on anything luckily! What'd you get defected on? =\

+1

Dark agents look sweet on that green. In saying that, the silver agents (if that's what they're called) would look awesome as well

Cheers Yes.40L and ef_falcon_95. I'll check them out. I originally liked the look of the black speedy cheetah's.

So I thought i'd upload some interior pics showing the new floor mats, to be replaced eventually by grey Tickford mats, and the cheap red throw over seat covers to protect the front seats for now. 8-) Also threw in a picture of the standard engine bay setup. Clean and tidy but nothing special... yet! :twisted:
