Well, I've been busy with work so I haven't been around for a while. I finally managed to get a small (by small I mean tiny) amount of work done. I installed yellow fog lights and am getting yellow tints soon. It is hard to see the difference in the pictures, but in person it is quite obvious.
I got some led licence plate lights, one unfortunately didn't work, so I am waiting for a replacement. This however provides a great opportunity for a contrast shot. LED on the right, stock on the left.
And finally I finished stitching my own shift boot out of black suede. The white leather is finally gone and it looks so much better. i should have a matching boot made for the ebrake by next weekend.
Not too exciting stuff, but my upcoming projects include a new set of wheels, black headlight housings (as soon as I can convince my mom that it is a good idea to put my headlights in the oven), plastidipped stock wheels, new wheel lugs, black drums and red calipers, color matched mirrors. Performance mods are going to have to wait. #1 on my list of performance mods is a tune from Tom, then maybe some SVT shocks and Struts, and perhaps a race header and a rear sway bar. I'm headed out autocrossing for the first time with my brothers. Both are pretty experienced. My 0-60 in eventually Focus isn't going to be keeping up with my brothers 04 Turboed Subaru Impreza WRX
and definitely not my other brothers 65' Chevrolet Corvair V8 race car.
But hey, that's why they have classes. Hopefully I will have some sweet photos, and perhaps a Street touring class win? So far my only registered competition would be a 98 VW beetle. Wish me luck at my first Autox event!
