Liquid Grey SVT Wannabe Ultra Slow Not Even Really a Build Thread Thread

Here's some pictures of my car. It's dirty from all of the pollen right now. There will be some big updates coming this summer as I recently purchased a second focus to act as a parts donor for some extra fun.

What do you have planned? Is your car 23 powered?

My car is a zetec. The car I bought has a JRSC with BBK and svt brakes all around. I plan to swap on the brakes this summer. I need to save up for the JRSC install. I'll probably just do a straight engine swap because the donor car has less miles than mine.

What do you have planned for suspension? Asked cause you mentioned svt brake upgrade. Great time to add hard to find svt spindles or the easier to find '05 only spindles which works w/ the earlier struts, but you'll need to get the '05+ bigger ball joints or a pr of '05+ arms or a great step up is CFM's tubular A-arms, stouter, lighter, better traction. Just order the pr for the '05+ cars.

Currently the car sits on H&R coilovers and handles really well. I eventually want to swtich to poly bushings since I am still riding on the original 13 year old rubber ones.

The donor car I have has complete SVT front and rear brakes with Russell SS lines. The brakes have been sitting for about four years but only have ~2,500 miles on them. My plan is to clean them up, paint everything black and throw them on the car this summer.

Here's a couple pictures of the donor. I don't have many saved on my phone.

Great you already have a svt setup(brakes/spindles). I also prefer black for calipers vs the typical red. I redid mine last yr from semi flat to gloss black.

I will likely just buy cheap black engine enamel and call it a day. I really think unless you have bad ass baer or brembos red is tacky. I don't mind silver though and that could also be an option.

I am currently undecided. I do like the hood a lot but currently don't want to invest in painting it right now.
