I've owned the car for 7 years now, I bought it when I was 16 and it is my first car. When I bought it it was an auto so the first major thing I did was a T5 swap. I have been mostly concerned of the aesthetics of the car thus far along with the suspension. I have done just about all the work on the car by myself or with the help of friends. Now that I am just about done with the exterior I am going to focus on the motor and the bay. I plan on shaving the bay and spraying it battleship grey. Ill probably just do a gt40 setup or just throw a complete rebulit explorer motor in it with a cam. A long way down the road I would like to do IRS with bags along with custom Work wheels and a turbo setup. Ive listed the car for sale several times but honestly dont think I have it in myself to get rid of it. Thanks guys.
