Hi guys, I've been on these forums for a little while now and been mostly lurking and researching/learning a lot about my car and everyone else's car on here too lol. It's about time I start my own thread for my car, and the additions or modifications I've done to it. I also want to post all my maintenance and repairs in here as well. I've been putting off repairs for too long now, and I've finally bought the new parts to get the job done, now it's just a matter of getting it done lol.

Anyways, I got this car almost a year ago with nearly 73k miles on it, and a like new leather interior :thmsup:! that was the selling point for me. It had some pretty bad scratches and dents on the front bumper passenger side also holes all over the rear bumper from what looks like someone's bolts from license plates that the previous owner backed into SEVERAL TIMES :thumbsdow so I knew I was going to do bodywork/paint sometime down the rode after I've scratched it up enough lol because this is my FIRST car :biggrin: so i know it's gonna happen, although I do know how to park unlike the previous owner ugh, I got a backup cam asap lol because why wouldn't you?

Other than that everything was running great and smoothly when I first got it, then a couple months of aggressive driving and a few joy rides it started to make a couple subtle yet noticeable engine/suspension noises :dunno: it took me awhile to figure it out but after a lot of searching and reading I read it could be my compliance bushings in my lower control arm or maybe my sway bar end-links. Sure enough on BOTH SIDES the rubber is cracked on each one of those parts :grumpy: well I was glad I found the problem finally.

Before I do anymore mods/additions to my car I want to make sure it's running in tip top shape and as healthy as can be.
Here is a list of the maintenance/repairs I want to do:
ATF Drain and fill 3x
Rotors (rust, screeching)
ALL Motor Mounts
Transmission Mounts
Drive Belt/Serpentine Belt
Timing Belt and Water Pump

Future mods not in any particular order:
30% tint all around
HID or LED reverse light
05' font lip
Inspire fogs
Quad HID retrofit
Bluetooth/aux/ipod input
Cold Air Intake
In-dash tablet/carpc

Things I've done or added so far (in order):
Plastidip grill matte black
Plastidip wheels gloss black
Paint break calipers "Ford blue"
Foot well 5050 LED music reactive strips
HID Mini H1 Projector Retrofit
2 10" Kicker Comps ported box
600w Kicker KX600.1 Amp

Here are some shitty phone pics just to give you guys an idea of what my daily looks like.

My one advice is to not "contact parking" with the front tires, keep doing this and you will eventually find a curb high enough to scrape and rip the front air dam off.......
