New Around Here

First of all, I don't know if this is the right section to post my intro in. If not, mods feel free to move it where it belongs. I looked around, and didn't really find any specific INTRO section.

I have a Black 09 SE. I have plenty of plans for it, such as emblem overlays, plastidip, OEM spoiler, halo projectors, tint, fog lights, and wheels. However, I'm currently unemployed, so that will all have to wait. I don't know a thing about doing anything to a car, so all these mods will be new to me. The only one I'm hesitant about is the fog lights.

This is my second Focus. I had an 01 ZX3 about 5 years ago.

Couple Pics...

Welcome.

I was in the same boat only a year ago with little knowledge about modding a car. Once you take the first steps, things will get much easier. Modding is more about building up your confidence to try thing and the skills will follow, and most of all, have fun.

Thanks.
Yeah, most of the stuff I'm ok with messing around with. But wiring is something I'm not cool with touching.

Wiring stuff isn't all that bad. Just check and double check that you have the right wires before cutting anything and your good to go.

Welcome to the forums. There are lots of cool peeps and cars on here for ideas and tips, as far as your fog lights are concerned they aren't THAT hard. Well if you follow the provided instructions they are hard but that is why I wrote this how to guide, Click me! I did the fog light install and it's not too bad as far as electrical stuff goes, no wire cutting, just some wire pulling.

Anyway welcome again enjoy your stay.

Thanks all. I love this car. First one I took a look at. Loved it from the beginning. Was also looking at a 2010 SES, but it had more mileage and they wanted a boatload more for it. This one, however, was a steal.
