Finally edited the last of the photos from DRIVEN, including those of the trophy.

Twenty Driven 2016 was a great show! After a lot of work the Focus was complete and detailed in time to roll in on Friday for the show which took place on Saturday.

I had been focusing on performance this year not only to have more power and braking ability for daily driving, but also so that the car would be more complete and therefore competitive at shows. I then decided to add lighting to my to-do list as well, and that's when the new tail lights came into the picture. I hadn't forgotten about the headlights however...

As a surprise for the show I reinstalled the car's original headlights, following a retrofit. The bezels were painted black and projectors added of course, but I also swapped out the amber turn signal lenses for European clear lenses to make them more unique. At the end of the day the car won BEST IN SHOW: DOMESTIC TUNER so I'd say the effort was definitely worth it! I had been chasing a Best in Show for a while and to finally win one was amazing! eglove was there and I'm pretty sure he cheered louder than anyone else that evening when my name was called.

Time to get back to work and continue improving the car!

With Driven getting closer, eglove and I met up at a friend's house and together the three of us wrapped the roof and various trim pieces on his ST.

Oxford White ST, now with True Blood roof, mirror caps, door trim, e-brake handle insert, and ST emblems.

I even made up a new steering wheel emblem overlay with the Yeti logo on it. One more car ready for the show!

Twenty I haven't had time yet to take detailed photos or put together a full review, but I can at least quickly show off the latest change to the Focus - new LED tail lights!

These are the same ones that Kyle Deyoung has had for a while now; with Driven (our first big show of the year) coming up I finally bought a set for myself and installed them immediately after I picked them up from the post office.

There's still more to do before May 7th but the car is getting there!

Yesterday I met up with the RWB's owner for some photos. We had great weather on our side and it was really cool to see the car again.

Of course I took one of the RWB and the Focus together, because that opportunity doesn't present itself often.

I couldn't resist sharing a couple from the day - at this point I'm still waiting on the delivery of the latest purchase, which will hopefully be here this week. More on that when it arrives! Driven is less than a month away now!

Twenty Quick update on the car and general happenings:

-The brakes are proving to be great to live with; tons of bite and easy to modulate. Due to the aggressive pads, there is a bit of noise and plenty of dust as previously mentioned. The front wheels are rarely white any more as expected - I'm considering switching to lower dust pads later this year.

-DRIVEN, our first big show of the year, is in just over a month now. I have a few small parts laying around to install still and also ordered some new tail lights last night with expedited shipping in the hopes of getting them here in time. Some will know which ones I ordered. More on those soon hopefully.

-And finally, a couple of final photos from last Tuesday which have now been edited and posted online. eglove and I hadn't discussed anything prior to the event but we happened to have the same idea and both had Nakai-san sign the backs of our cars. My signature is on the stock trim panel and eglove's is on his new RDC emblem delete panel.

More news as soon as the final changes for Driven start happening!

Shot of the finished signature, because I hadn't yet posted one.

Twenty I've uploaded my video from the day - hopefully fellow RWB fans enjoy seeing the debut of our province's first.

Twenty I covered the whole trim piece in PPF now so the signature is safe and sound.
