I know, right?
Seems like that would be a bit front heavy, but a blast to drive all the same.

Thing was, he already called 15 min prior and was a dick to my coworker and he hung up on her...

I wasn't about to take any more of his shit.

He spoke with my manager like 30 min after that and she told him we aren't reversing his fees. So he's closing his account. Good riddence! SCORE!!

No can do.
I can pretty much only do weekends for the time being, until I move closer to where I work.

Kyle's annoying thread jack of the day...

back to Focus ST, center hitch, and dual exhaust thru bumper? Think there is enough room for a 2 inch by 6-7 inch tip? And would it look okay?



What I stole the exhaust tips from...



Maybe do a tip like this...

Yeah, there's no reason to behave that way toward other people because of his own mistake(s). That's not to say I agree with the act of charging broke people for being broke, but that guy sounds like he was way out of line.

I actually really like that idea however I'm doubting those openings are really 2" (which means you'd need at least 2.25" ish to allow for heat insulating etc)

how big are the stock ST exhaust tips? even if they are 3.5" they still tuck fully into that opening and the grille openings dont look to be more than half as wide.

if they will fit that is a totally bad ass idea and would look amazing.
