Pitch Black SVT
I'm starting a "sort of" build thread for my car. I am not planning on doing anything crazy(for now) but there are a few things that I plan on doing with my car. I hope it's build thread worthy.

Current mods:
K&N Typhoon short ram intake
LED Tail lights
Yellow fogs
Fog light mod
Blue interior accent lighting
Kenwood Excelon KDC-X796

Mods I want:
Borla exhaust
CFM 67mm throttle body
Steeda Short Throw shifter
Euro grill (purchased)
Full LED conversion(about halfway done)
Re-paint the brakes(in the process)
Paint the valve covers(Ford Blue)
Supercharger(not for a while)
The interior lighting
Interior light switch & amp on/off
LED wiring under the console
LED tails (Spyder Auto)
Yellow fogs (Rvinyl overlays)

Hope you enjoy!

I absolutely love everything that you have done so far!

[welcome] to FF! [ffrocks]

There are a few things that I would change. Now keep in mind that this is for a clean OEM+ look that I think you need to do. Get rid of those switches, make that OEM again... Paint your stock brakes back to black. That's it, besides getting either Mach HID's or ST170's and lowering a bit more. You got a good car, please don't take it in the wrong direction.

Looks good!

Thanks for the input. When I bought the car about 4 months ago the brakes where already blue. They were pretty faded so I went with Ford Blue.

Don't worry I'm not gonna "rice" it up.

I have the shifter and throttle body, it's a great combo. If you really wanna fly through the gears, a lightweight flywheel is good to have too :) Its a bit spendy though.

Great looking car man!

At least they were done on the removable part of the console... So it's an easy ditch

well, as long as the hole is 1/2" or 9/16 or something like that, you'll be able to fit a different style switch.

That entire section of the console is removable on the SVT's and some higher trim models of Foci. The OP should have no problem un-doing that.

The Focus came with way too many different types of consoles, it's ridiculous. Some had a removable piece around the shifter, some armrests, some pen-holders, some aux ports, some extra pockets, etc.

stealthzx3 09-01-2012 10:51 PM

mine has the shifter surround and pen holder. lol. plus an extra little pocket between the cupholders.
