Nice!

Had the 'private property" accident myself at a mall years ago, not fun.

Check out FreeFocus' build thread for another CLEAN SPI.

Clean Indeed, thanks Sailor!

Looking good. How did the paint match go when the car was in the accident being that the sun faded the paint around the area that wasn't hit?

Nice custom work you have done as well. Keep it up, good to see another SPI getting taken care of.

My friend who owns a body shop blended it for me, he also did the hood and spoiler. He's good at what he does.
Thanks

like $30 for the intake and the breather. the only thing is that the intake is hanging there and I need an idea on how to hold it stable. I know I need another breather, it happened while I was drilling out the rubber connector to fit lol. let me know what you think, im pretty pleased.

I took that small hose where your breather is and where it goes into the valve cover is where I put that.

Looks good other than that! Clean that valve cover.

I bought some Nonsense, just a general cleaner from Chemical guys, $7 or so. Or just get a cleaner of sorts thats fairly strong. Spray it on there and I just used a green pad to scrub at it. Ill find a picture of mine.
Started like this.

Then this.


Changed the color of the air tube with some red electrical tape to go with the theme of the car. Also bought some vinyl and put it over the caps to clean it up a bit.

Aughta debadge the rear end too!

Since its mods here I like DIY mods. I changed my 3rd brake light to say something. Right now it says "focus" might change it to "stop" soon.
