A race to the finish!
As most of you know, I'v been having this car worked on for a long time. It wasn't until 2010, when plans changed for the worse...rather maybe the better. [dunno]

You can read about everything done so far here:

Other than that I have plenty to do still. In a way, it really is a lot considering the help I need to finish. I say, my car has turned into a community build. If you're in the Tampa area, and have nothing to do, let's get together and get my car done!

  • - Done: Built Zetec Head
  • Sierra RS Hood Vents
  • Hood Vent Drip Pans
  • RS Center Console
  • RS Number Plate stamped with the SVT build #
  • RS Slam Panel Painted & Install
  • - Done: Carbon Fiber Bumper Gills Install
  • Euro Lock Replacement
