Time for me to catch up on things I've done to the Focus. First I'll tell about the motor/transmission mounts. When I went over small hills or bumps there would be an awful knocking around noise. Finally I bit the bullet and bought both the passenger motor mount and the transmission mount. Glad that I finally did this because I have not had that noise since!
Here is the new tranny mount next to the old one. The old motor mount was missing the cap and when I removed it there was no pressure... I think all fluid may have drained out of it.
Secondly, I decided to save that $300+ I almost spent on retrofits (I still want them so badly) and just did a headlight restore. While I had it apart I went ahead and painted the inserts and I am happy with the new look. I may end up getting a different driver light anyway, it has moisture inside and it didn't turn out as well as the right side. Here are a few pics of how terrible it was.
Just for fun here are a few pics. The grey GTi is my brothers. I got to drive it home from Texas when he got it and it definitely gave me the turbo bug. Someday I hope to get an SVT and I may build that engine but this Focus will remain just a driver. And that snow is from the first week of the season, the season being SPRING!
