    From the name and the greeting you've probably already guessed I'm not from this side of the equator. These days I live just to the East of Toronto with the missus and our two girls.
    Bought a very much unloved '03 V6 this time last year and I'm slowly bringing her back to life. Upgraded or repaired most of the safety items - brakes, steering, lighting, wheels, tires - and now I'm on suspension.
    Once the suspension upgrades are done - Strange coilovers front and rear, tubular k-member and a-arms, spherical joint upper and lower rear arms, panhard bar - it's on to power train.
    Jumped the gun a little on that by ordering a Strange 9" for the rear to hang the new arms and shocks off and already have a n/a Barra long motor from back home in my storage unit waiting to be torn down and begin the process of attaching all the right parts to hold up under what a medium sized hair dryer attached to the headers will do to it!
    Appearance/Interior are last on my list but I just got to get rid of those friggin' decals!!

    Keep the decals, they may be a rare dealer add-on.

    Not bloody likely. She started life as a Budget Rent-A-Car in Alberta! Passenger door is rotten anyway and I have to repair some rust and one of the many dings the previous owners put in the drivers door so the decals will be gone no matter what.

    I got my 2000 brand new.
    The dealer (Stealer) tried to sell me stripes, tint, and a "special paint sealer,"
    and that same decal.
    I think the decal was for the Fox body 5.0.
