Ok I’ve posted lots on the small mods that I have done to the car but not on the car it’s self from the start

Mod’s so far : Razz 

35mm drop on dobi spring’s
New Monroe gt shocks
Camber bolts
Nolathane bushes for the lower L arms
Nolathane rear tension strut bushes
Polyurethane front 25mm bushes
18mm rear white line sway bar
All new top hats
All new adjustable sway bar links
260mm zonille slotted front discs with rebuilt levin twin pots
Race pads front and rear
Rear zonille slotted discs
Braded brake lines
Silicon coolant hose’s ( in red ) Laughing 
High flow thermostat
Cusco catch can
8mm spark plug leds (in red)Laughing 
Light weight racing Avanti rims
Bz head lights
35% tints all round
Door tweeters 1” 200w
250w 6” door speekers
300W 5” rear speekers
1200w amp
1000w 12” sub
Foot well jtm lights
Under seat tray

So I’ve had the car for 4 years now and in for years it has changed, it started life as a stock orange fxgt no mods to speak of. It was a replacement for my wife’s 84 fxgt that was dying of rust as they do. the same day that we picked up the new gt I over heated the old one on some of the cool roads on the way so after a 20min cool down we set of home me in the new gt her in the old one first off impressions it was dam heavy to drive compared to the 84 gt and the 89 gt that I had, so we hit the motorway and I put my foot down and it took off.
The first mod was the rims the one's that came with the car were not to my liking so I sold them for $400 nzd and pulled the rim's off my mr2 and what a difference.
after a year another gt came my way it had had a smack in the front but it was manual and mine was auto so I thought I’d do the swap that still hasn’t happened No  my wife wont drive a manual and as it her car I have to go with what she want's:!:  so I started pulling parts of the crashed gt and found some jtm goody’s Very Happy key lamp set for foot well lights tweeters and 5" rear speakers so the first of the mods went in. I don’t have any photos of them going in.
6 months after fitting the speakers and lights the car fails its wof (mot) test on a sway bar bush. As I was trying to fit the new bushes I found that the rear sway bar was bent so the only thing to do was replace the bar with a new 18mm white line one and this was amazing the car handled great around corners but was still a bit floppy .
ill find my older photo's of the car so you can see the mods after this point Very Happy
