Honestly? None, essentially. At most, finish my interior painting, guages, and maybe clear corners. At this point, with my minimal income, I'm saving for more important things. A new car could eventually be one of those things, and when it's purchased, then I'll come back to my LX and make a monster autoXer outta her. But until that time, she's staying as is.

Banhammer available, no waiting!

Right now just get my Scort back on the ROAD!! It's been over a month since she's seen the road and I miss the rumble of my exhaust. LOL After I get the car back and running :wink:, I plan on getting my GT bumper finished up with it's alum. mesh, and shaving of the chrome trim piece. I'm going to try and get that damn GT header installed with the EGR system working too. That thing has haunted me since the day I heard of putting a GT header on my LX engine. I've got some GT side skirts I'm hoping to modify to my car one day. My paint job will come before that since it looks like the ole' factory color is starting too loose her shine. Still debating on what to do with my sound system. Sorry guys and gals, I'm not giving it away either. :lol: Hardly any shows going on for competitions so lugging all that crap gets to be a real "drag". :lol: Don't get me wrong, I miss having the "bump" in my ride, but with gas going up like it is, I need all the "less" weight as possible. :wink: Who knows what I'm going to start on with it next, hell I might even put in a new head unit since the one in there now is crapping out. :lol:

i have PAID for the following

eibach springs
tokico s/r struts
gtx turbo setup including
stock pop off valve
intake pipes
freshly cleaned gtx injectors
fresh hankook rubber all around on cheapy chromie 15 inch wheels (wheels came on my gti i had for like 6 months)

now to the wet dream part, actual plans with no money down.

id like to redo the interior... nothing special, probably not leather or anything but with my mx3 seats id like to make everything match again.

body work and respray... i have some money down on this i just need to figure out the best way to aquire new parts... the respray will be no problem. ill be leaving it the original color and asside from the fenders, doors, trunk, and hood that i will be having painted off the car i will probably do a cheapy macco color match for the fixed body pieces.

finish the turbo... megasquirt, exhaust, intercooler, fuel pump... good times.

Well, really anything that I can do to speed it up and make it look better are my plans... realistically though, I'm not too sure.

I'm probably gonna end up all show no go... because I lack the knowledge of the mechanics, and as of right now, I can't pay for that much. In the near future though (1 or 2 years!) I am planning on lowering it, shaving everything, painting it, getting an even better stereo (I'm thinkin that my E-10's need to become X-10's, and that my 1 amp has to become 3 or 4), a video system type thing... not sure whether just to go strictly DVD, go X-box, or go PC (I can get some really cool 6'X6"X6" PC's from my work).

I have a center console from a 2002 Jeep Cherokee. I want to try to mate it with my exsisting console. It'll give me an arm rest with storage and cup holders for the rear passengers.

just a tune up for now
and replacing all the burnt out lights in the dash - it would be nice to see the gauges at night

(just bought the car, first things first)

then it's time to install the stereo

i also have a tach i might add, it would be nice to view the rpm's

who knows, i may gut the interior and do a full custom..........
the engine's only a 1.9, so i don't think there are any mods worth the $$'s. (other than a full swap)

I plan to just let 'er rust and sink as little beer money as possible into 'er till she dies.

It's possible she'll look even uglier when she dies than she looks right now.
