Mods Intro

    Initially I had intended to simply paint the car black, and replace visible exterior parts that were worn (Head-lights, tail-lights, door-handles, and emblems) as well as bolt up some Turbine rims with new rubber. The loan I received to cover the job was twice what I expected, and I ended up purchasing a road-race suspension, and V8 swap parts (T5, 3.73 8" posi) instead of paint.
