    Some Pics of my 2002 Formula Firehawk

    I finally got time to clean and detail the 2002 Aritic White Formula Firehawk I bought a few weeks ago. I also removed the side moldings, put on new decals (the factory ones were showing some age), overlays (still not sure at all about the nose bird...I may take the green off and go all blue), and got the windows tinted. I have got to get new turn signal housings...I know the ones in it look like shit. I just forgot to order them last week.

    I spent about 15hrs on it total..it was pretty dirty but the paint was in good shape (expect for the million rock chips on the nose.) The steps where fairly straight forward...washed it with dawn, Zaino clay bar, washed it with dawn, touched up the million chips on it, clayed it again, washed it with dawn again, buffed it with Zaino Fusion Z-PC swirl remover, then two coats of Zaino Z-5. The tires were done with Z-16 Zaino Tire Gloss, the glass polished with Z-12 Zaino glass polish and the taillights with Z-14 plastic polish. I need to follow up with some Zaino Z-2 but the weather is starting to deteriorate down here so it will have to wait. (You would never know my SOM car is sponsored by Zaino would you....)

    Ok, now for the pics....let me know what you think...not a bad daily driver huh?

    Just some bolt on and appearance stuff....right now to go on it I have a set of red powder coated VCs and MAF ends, MDS coils and wires, a polished SLP throttle body & smooth bellows and a white PCed Hotchkiss STB (I know it does nothing but looks good.) I am going to get a Bilstien Level II suspension kit for it as well. I may get some CCWs for it to...I havent decided yet. I could justify it by saying I was "saving" the factory wheels.

    I didnt post pics of the interior because I haven't detailed it yet! Its ebony leather which is very rare for a Formula, and in great shape. Here are some of the way it was when I bought....I have at least vacumed it since then:

    Looks good! The blue/green tag cover looks a lot better than I thought it would!

    Very nice! I've never even seen one in that color combo before. How many of the Formula hawks did they make as opposed to the T/A's?

    In 2002 they made 1501 Firehawks...1334 were TAs and 167 were Formulas (16 were white.) So they are pretty rare to say the least.

    I'm Blind!!! I have my monitors brightness turned down considerable and those pics were still extremely bright white.

    Good Job.

    When I bought my T/A, I had an option of a 02 white firehawk formula. I didn't know anything about the cars at the time and decided to go with the manual. Now I wish I would have done some research. Oh Well!! I'm still happy with what I have.

    I really wanted a SOM Firehawk (Formula or TA) but settled for the white one.
