Gurkpimpin's car build

I got this car from my dad he overhauls focuses he picked it up in Detroit for $300 The body needed some work and the rocker panels started to rust it had a single split port with a blown engine..I recently totaled my 01 wagon on black ice so he swapped the engine from that car to the new car its a 2.0 Zetec
Got the car up and running drove it about 100 miles then it died had it towed home car sat there for weeks couldn't figure out was wrong with mean while I bought a SAP kit for 300 brand new just needed paint dad finally figured out the problem the wires on the back of the engine melted to each other so it shorted that all fixed car is now running great.

Future Plans for car this year are
1) Tinted tail lights and Side Markers
2) New Headlights think halo with projection
3) A Good Interior Cleaning
4) New Center Bezel
Next Spring/Summer
1) Rims and Tires
2) Lowering kit maybe 1in to 1.5in cause of snow
3) Sound System Gotta get rid or the factory
5) CAI - Need a Good One Guys
6) Round Fog Lights Like The Ones On The 06 Sedans Custom Fit Into Bottom Grille
7) Snow Tires For Old Rims And Clean Old Rims Up And Shoot Some Paint On Them
8) Body Work has Scratches dent and some rust starting on the driver fender taken care of.

My Focus Is Just A Focus For Now But Who Knows Wait Awaits Diablo. "If guns kill people then,pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk and...spoons made Rosie O' Donnell fat"
