The New Triumphs are nice Cycles, the detour is understood!
Focus fun again after a break, tx for the update!

Well it has been almost two years since my last update. Perhaps a thread revival is in order. Since my last I have run some autocross races and done fairly well. SVT Contour wheels were on for a while but then I had a blowout going 75 down the highway. I haven't had enough money for new tires yet, so I have just been running the plastidipped stock wheels with my winter tires. Tonight I finally finished up a project that I meant to do a long time ago, mounting a SVT spoiler. Here's how she looks now:
What does the future hold? Next up is some performance rubber on the Contour wheels so I can get back to autocross. A header is next after that. With those two things done the plan would be to install coilovers. Now that is going to take time and money, both of which I am very short on, but here's hoping! The Focus hasn't been my priority vehicle wise for the past couple years as I fallen completely in love with motorcycles. Here is my baby, 1999 Triumph Sprint ST 955i:

|eagle_eye735||I will have to try that. I'm not sure how well it will work considering the bolt is seized in the insert not at the nut. I will be burning some rubber for sure and there is no real good way to get at it. I'll probably try turning the bolt as far as I can, and having somebody else try to spray some PB blaster into the tiny space and see if we can't get it loosened up.|

Have you tried heat for the seized bolt? A torch can work wonders sometimes.

So, long time since my last update. I did some more autox, I even got my girlfriend to go along on the last one, I think she is hooked.
Also I bought a Massive lower torque mount
I tried to install it today but one of the old bolts is seized to the insert of the old bushing. I need more PB blaster so it will have to wait until the weekend.
Today I converted to winter mode, got my winter tires mounted on the plastidipped stockers. I also got my summer tires mounted up on the SVT 5 spokes so they are ready to go for the spring.
Also, I plan on getting my SVT spoiler installed once I get back home for semester break.
That's about it. Ohh, I have lots of leds on the way for fun projects over semester break. I'm thinking lighting for under dash and under seats, also I am going to revamp my hatch lighting. Probably cup holder leds too. I have some carbon fiber vinyl laying around somewhere; I'll probably find something to wrap.

|eagle_eye735||Also I got a replacement reverse light switch in today, so hopefully in the next couple of days my reverse lights will work for the first time since I have owned the car lol.|

|stealthzx3||i didn't know the 05-07 had a heated seats option. and the cup holders are the style as the svt. but no armrest, my bad. why no reverse lockout? i love mine for some reason, i don't see why everyone removes them.|
