I bought this car about a year ago and have been slowly doin some minor mods to her.
This is how she looked when I bought her.
Image
First mod was to get rid of the stock exhaust, got my hands on a 2 1/2" X-force cat back zorst
Image
I then did a bit of tinkering with the front end
Image
I then made a new lower intake and installed a K&N air filter
Image
Brakes were cleaned up and given a coat of paint
Image
I also gave the coil cover a hint of red too
Image
I then found a nice set of wheels that were bougt for a song
Image
Image
The newest mod is new Plates that i ordered last week.

Car looks awesome, love what you've done to the front bar. Glad u got the number plates. F**k those yellow ones look horrible! haha

Ive always thought someone should buy a white one of these and drop it on its guts and put some nice dark spokey rims on it. Would look so awesome! love the long skinny bottom grille on these.

like this :

oh yeah you really appreciate it when you see how the little things make a difference whether its performance wise or just for personal comfort.

Then once you move onto the bigger jobs you really notice how unique your ride has become.

im in the same boat mate, extractors and a high flow cat will be my next performance mods for sure 8-)

Haha with me i look at it like, "If i didn't do this to my car, i would have wasted the money on this at this nightclub" or I'd buy some over priced clothes or some s**t

Money is always well spent when it goes towards a Ford, Gandhi tought us that 8-)
