The car started off at it's humble beginning looking like this....
Unfortunately during a work meeting she ended up into the corner of a guard rail, destroying the original Andys Auto Sport Combat Bomb Body Kit. Since Tony didn't plan on fixing it, he went a completely different route and got bit by the mod bug.
Here is the transformation of what he likes to call her, Sandy.
At the body shop getting a new coat of Imola Orange Metallic.
This is the finished product from the bodyshop complete with ZXTuner Invader
Carbon Fiber Hood. Finishing up, they installed a new Andys Auto Sport Urethane Buddy Club
Body Kit and Andys Auto Sport J-Class fenders.
A new pair of shoes for Sandy, a nice blingin' set of 18" Konig Absolute's wrapped in 215/35/18 Toyo Proxes T1R tires.
Once the new shoes were on, she was sitting a bit high for Tony's taste. He decided to drop her with a strut/spring combo of KYB GR-2 shocks and Spring Performance springs. Since she was nice and tucked, Tony installed a 1991 Escort GT rear sway bar which has a thicker diameter than factory. With the beautiful wheels shining we needed something behind them, so a pair of cross drilled and slotted rotors finish up the look.
Time to take her on the ROAD!
Tony loves to drive fast, he noticed that air flow was tumbling and creating a swirling vortex behind his car which means, he had a lot of drag keeping his car from moving forward as quick as possible and lift which reduced his grip at higher speeds. The answer to this?
Wings West 3D Carbon Fiber Wing! Unfortunately, this wing has been discontinued for quite some time, there are no more available from Wings West!
All these goodies on the exterior, what about the engine?!
Installed to give it more kick was:
- Gude 4-1 Full Length Race Header
- Gude Intake/Exhaust Camshafts
- Esslinger Cam Gear
- Esslinger Under Drive Pulley Set
- MSD Ignition Coil
- Ford Racing Spark Plug Wires
- Weapon-R Cold Air Intake
- Custom 2.5" diameter exhaust system with a Magnaflow High Flow Catalytic Converter and Performance Muffler
- ZXTuner Transmission
- Centerforce clutch
- Fidanza Flywheel
Now that we got the fast stuff, Tony decided to lighten up a bit more. He installed a VIS Racing Carbon Fiber Trunk along with ZXTuner Carbon Fiber Euro Tail Lights
What do we get at the end? One of the nicest ZX2's to ever grace the West Coast! Throw us a comment, give us some votes, here are some of the last pictures once she was completed!
