Kipp's 09 Coupe build
Well I've had a few things on my list for a while now, but now that i have a time frame they may actually get done. Have several things done so far, but as we all know it's never done. Here's a couple pics of what i'm starting with.

the major parts that aren't shown is those pics are some paint scratches/chips on the rear bumper and front bumper as well as wear and rock chips on the front end from lots of highway driving.

So here's what i have planned to do so far before FocusFest:

-install ford oem roof spoiler
-plastidip entire car (roof, both spoilers, and a few other accents black. rest of car either orange or green). here's a pic of what i had in mind for that.

-repaint the faded interior pieces. will keep blue if car is orange, or do green to match if car is green
-possibly change out wheels for svt eap's i have or trade those for some steeda wheels
-repair JL 300/4 amp and reinstall
-replace worn suspension (h&R springs on monroe dampers) with KSport coilovers. debating between the Kontrol Pro's or Rally Spec AR

That's all I can think of right now. If I have more I'l add it on here.

I like the color combo that you have planned! See you at FF[headbang]

This should look good when done!

+1 on the change out the wheels.

Kipp 12-08-2012 07:45 AM

yeah, the wheels are not top on my list, but would like to get something different. would love to get the fifteen52 tarmacs, but prolly won't fit in the budget by FF. I have the svt eap's, but not sure if i wanna do those since they were a factory option on this model and I want something different. Right now the suspension and fixing the body damage is more important though. We shall see what hapens by summer.

That's a big change. I do like the color combo too.

I'm ready to see your car in that sick orange! I can't wait to see some updates and I'm also glad you didn't sell it [thumb]

Looks good. I don't mind the wheels, I'd just paint the red

well i appreciate all the support and comments on her, but i'll be out of this contest now. the focus is sold and new buyer is picking it up next week. i'm gonna talk to them and see if they will come to focusfest as well. and i'll still be there in the new truck.
