    I picked up this car a few days ago. I definitely wasn't looking for an SN95, but the deal was too good to pass up. It's a 98 GT 5 speed with 178k on it and was in pretty shitty condition. There were a few strange upgrades done to it, like a MAC catback, shaved antenna, 03 Cobra steering wheel, and front and rear cobra brakes but it hadn't been taken care of very well. It drives perfectly though. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out after one day of work.

    When I brought it home.

    And after a little TLC. I did a full paint correction, painted the roof, swapped wheels, and did some underhood cleaning.

    That's all for today. Nothing left that I want to do other than find some cheap wheels for it, cut the springs a little, and put some new headlights in and it will be ready to sell.

    Wow, you sat on the other one for quite some time. Do you think this one will sell easier?

    Also, what do you do to get those engine bays looking so good?

    This one is going to be much easier to sell since it's not nice enough or modded to where I need to ask a premium and have limited buyers. I'll ask $4500 for it and probably take $4000 for it and be happy. The other one had a very limited market because it was over twice the cost.

    I only spent 30 minutes at most on the engine bay actually lol. I sprayed it down with a water hose, sprayed simple green on everything, scrubbed, rinsed and let it dry overnight. Then I took tire shine, coated the whole bay, and then wiped it down.
