My 2012 Silver Se Hatch Build Thread

Finally getting around to posting my Car from start to its current states since I do get a lot of messages about some of the mods I have done so hear we go.

This is Here bone stock the Day I bought her

IMG_4666 by theshrewz, on Flickr

First Mod was Plasidipping the Grill and wheels, I masked it off and put cardboard behind the grill so nothing got on the radiator, Helpful time on the last coat pull of the tape when the coat is still wet, I got a cleaner line that way.

IMG_4887 by theshrewz, on Flickr

and As you can see installed my Thule Aeroblade Roof Rack.

Next up was my custom rear Exhaust, I made a paper template and notched the bumper with a dremel and sanded the edges smooth to fit my new Dual Exhaust.

then Off to the Muffler Shop

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Next was Ebay Pedal Covers which Ive been very happy with

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Then it was time to get a little bit of lows, with my Steeda Springs and a MS3 Rear motor mount swap. I don't have it pictured but also installed Steeda Rear Sway Bar(hands down best handling improvement on this car) and Steeda Short Shifter Bracket.

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Saved some weight by taking back seat bottoms out haha, I really did it to have some more space since my driver seat butted upto the seat buttom all the time when seats were folded flat, which they are 99 percent of the time, and I did a DIY floor mate, that has a break line where the seats fold up so if I need it I just can lift the front pieces off and the rear section stays in place.

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Now it was time for some more Ponies with a a STEEDA CAI, its red cause I used K & N Oil on it


Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Then bought a F2 header off a FF member

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

Then it was Time to Paint the Valences, I wanted to give the Illusion that the car was sitting lower, and though it cleaned up the lines of the car. Also put on a 3d Wing from china

Next up I found a Killer deal on some Volvo Midir 18's wrapped in Pzeros and I swore these were meant for this car the Silver matches perfectly.

IMG_5219 by theshrewz, on Flickr

IMG_5218 by theshrewz, on Flickr

Then Some bastards tried to steal my roof Rack so I had to have that repaired

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr

But now she's back

Untitled by theshrewz, on Flickr


and Yes I ride a Focus Bicycle as well

IMG_3824 by theshrewz, on Flickr


Planned Mods:
-Black HID Headlights (probably the ones from Ebay a few members have)
-Either Adjustable Dampers (if someone finally makes a set)
or K2 Coilovers and id sell the steeda springs
-Install my Tri Axle Shifter Bracket for extra 15% reduced shift throw
-LED Tails if someone makes a better looking set then ones from China
-Alcantara on the Headliner
-Black out the interior tan panels
-Wrap steering wheel in Alcantara
-Swap shift Boot with Alcantara
-Swap Shift Knob
-Some Recaros (From an ST would be awesome but most likely some knock offs haha)
-TUNE!!

If All my Pictures made your browser crash I consider that a WIN
