I'm back ! ! !

I guess I just couldn't escape my love for the focus! !

Picked up a 02 SVT this weekend. My 5th focus LOL.
I needed a daily driver that would fit in the airport garages and I don't like the idea of my truck sitting all alone anyway.

So yeah, i'm back and pretty excited. Got a good deal on the car and it has some usual stuff that I remember w/ foci. Drivers door handle doesn't operate from outside. Ebrake isn't working. Trunk switch doesn't work. Maybe needs a pulley or tensioner judging by the sound. Drove great though.
Can't wait to get her off the trailer if it ever stops raining in VT.



Here she is !

Thanks old1030 and Nickgt40 ! !

I hear ya...my biggest scare about this car is I know absolute next to zero about its history so I will plan on assuming the worst. Clutch lets out pretty high so i'm considering babying it until it's clutch time and then do the timing, water pump, n clutch at the same time. I hate this part because I start to loose control and find a way to over spend...I mean hey....you're in there. FLYWHEEL !

Isn't it only an interference motor if it goes 180 deg out?

Just tore the int. door panel off this evening...looks like there is no fix to the existing exterior door handle as there is a piece missing from the cast. SAD FACE ! Though it was to be expected. Time to hit the magic search button !

Thanks again for the welcomes and advice ! ! !

I didn't dare ask about the door handle but figured LOL !

When I get it road worthy i'll pop down with it and see you. 89.6% chance you'll see me sunday from BDL ! It rides worse than my truck on the driveway, it's gotta have something stiffer under it ! ! Blue and yellow looking...guessing koni or bilstein for shocks/struts....i'll get the hard data when I finally get under it !

Nice Find, even if you have to deal with the "usual suspects" list to get 'er back in dependable shape, they aren't making any more clean & straight ones like that!

"Fraid "Mud Season" has been extended a bit this year. My Bud up near Burlington was lucky, the road on HIS side of the Valley wasn't washed out.... others not so lucky!

Cheers!

This seems to be quite common so I may as well draft up a how to if there is not one !
Let me know if you think it would be useful ?

Sorry to hear of the attempted break in...why are ppl such a holes !?!
