New to the P5 family

Just bought an 03 Protege5 to play with. The A/C compressor seized so I bypassed it with a DAYCO belt and I’m planning on deleting the A/C system and muffler. I don’t have a bunch of money so it will be a slow build. I’d love some ideas, pointers, etc. to make this a bit easier and more fun. Please no negativity or arguments. If you disagree with someone’s idea please say why but don’t start arguing back and forth.

Cool! :cool: Welcome - I've been here while working on fixing up my son's $750 P5 for him for the last couple of months.

Good people here with lots of knowledge. I've learned a LOT about P5s!
