    Matt's ZHP project, Project Ultimate Grocery Getter

    Hey fellas, today is as good of day as any to start this thread for my zhp project. After all this time of ownership, I have now decided that it's time to build this car into a rocketship. The first item has arrived today, now it's time to get into the project. Starting out on this, I will move along a little slower, the wife and I are planning to buy a house towards the end of the year.

    Nice man. Get you an air ratchet and plenty of diff extensions and flexi elbows or your life will be bad! Also expect most all of the header bolts to come out when you remove the old ones. Which for me was ideal since I replaced all the bolts anyways. And you can just sink the new ones there's plenty of threads once the new headers are on. Also remove the heat shields on the old ones when removing and new ones when reinstalling, makes the job much easier.

    Yes sir, got all the tools needed and more for this project, I used to be a heavy equipment tech for Caterpillar. Now that I have a desk job, got more tools than I know what to do with!

    After the headers are installed, the next item up for bids will be the brakes. It's near due for new pads and roters, so going to upgrade both. Been shopping them around between bimmerbrakes and ecstuning.com

    Lol...I can't imagine the amount of oversized tools you must have. Will likely feel like working on R/c cars with normal sized car tools...
