I think I remember what you're talking about... it wasn't real recent, but not long ago either...
I'll hunt around, see if I can dig it up.

This (http://focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=39753&highlight=embroid%2A) was the best I could find, user Metatrox.
What were you looking for the thread for- ideas on placement, how to remove the headrest covers, something like that?

I saw something about what you are talking about. I saw it in somebody's photo album though, it wasn't in a topic. And I think you replied to the person's pic. 'Cos didn't one of the colors match his ride?

^^^cloud 9, thank you so much, exactly what i was looking for, no wonder i didnt find it. THanks man. To make things alittle different, i think im going to do the opposite, and put Focus behind ZX3

No problem. Are you going to use the same colors, or are you gonna make it green and silver, or some other combo?

im going to use green and some other color that will stick out. The silver is not really metalicy, and looks more white so its do able for me. Give ideas if you have any, like what color to use with green, what word should be which color, etc. Once its actually finished ill post a how-to so other people can do it too if they want. That is if they dont wanna pay to have it done.

I bought my focus with the heads embroidered

Yes, the Blue and Silver Focus ZX3 is in my Focus.
I had it done by my neighbor, as an experiment.
The blue looks much better than the flash photo makes it appear.
These next two are much more representative of the actual colors.
I also had him do it to my last car, 1995 T-Bird, also as an experiment.
As you can tell from the photo, we have gotten a little more detailed with the embroidery.

Wow those look awesome!

Thank you. I thought they turned out pretty good, too.
08-03-2005, 08:49 AM
Wow those are really nice.

It is a design that I came up with, based on the emblems that were on the back of the car. I then just drew them together and gave my neighbor the drawing on a disk. I thought the contrasting colors make it look pretty slick.

wow, pure sex!
That is awesome. Maybe a cheap alternative would use the T-Shirt Iron-Ons from Wal-Mart, but it def. would not last. Anyway, awesome.
