hurtinfocus It's just been sitting collecting dust. I've bought a few parts for it here and there that remain uninstalled, and I had started fabricating a turbo manifold and downpipe for a T04 turbo I had scored cheap.....but I don't have much time these days with my motorcycle business getting off the ground.

anyone interested in bikes and general fabrication type stuff, I use my instagram accounts to highlight that stuff.

angerstkustoms for mostly fab and custom work

citylimitmoto for completed bikes and fancy protective gear

rambleon84 Hows the car doing these days Nick? Looks like its been about a year since the last update? She back on the road yet? I saw that thielt1's RS thread got bumped and it made me think of yours too.

hurtinfocus sort of I guess, I pulled the headliner and all the upper trim from the interior to convert it all to black....died the plastics and flocked the headliner in microsuede, installed all the euro lighting like rear dome, vanity lights, etc. and wired all that up.....been trying to come up with something different for seating that's not just racing seats or something like that, and need to touch up and repaint a couple panels. the rear arches are loaded with stone chips down by the lower front edge from not having mudflaps up front and not having clear bra material on that part of the arch....hood needs work, and I have some suspension tweaks to make.

Not even sure I'll get it together to bring to FR16....which would also mean I'd have to find a way to get it there since I can't afford to insure/register three vehicles on top of owning my house.

I agree, I would love nothing more than for someone to take this car and do so. I'd be willing to help in that endeavor just at this point in life can't do it on my own dime. I did a lot of research on the swap and have a fair grasp on what it would take and have the tools/capability to do it.....just no time or space to rip two cars apart to do it.....until I own my own building lol. So, maybe someday down the road I'll build another, with v6 AWD.

hurtinfocus So I took the car to FR15. I didn't get to finish all the things I wanted to before the trip, and thus wasn't really proud of the car I didn't pay much attention to cleaning it once there, left my doors and hood closed, and spent my time browsing everyone else's cars.

I got home, and felt rejuvenated with motivation to re-visit some areas of the car I felt need attention. I am already working through all of that.....yet in the process realized I'm at a bit of a crossroads......take the car back off driving duty and go into things like boost, or track down an x-type to AWD V6 swap this car......or just stop. I also have been talking to a realtor about commercial property to push my side-shop work into possibly a legitimate business, and discovered I need 20% down to purchase commercial property to do so.....I am listing this car for sale in an effort to pass it on to someone who will appreciate it, and use the money to purchase a commercial building. I can always get a cheap shell and do another one if I really want to.....but I can also buy the new one when it comes out......

I want to thank everyone on the community that followed along with my build, offered support and kind words, shared in my triumphs and failures, and those who voted for me whenever I was in ROTM. I truly love this community, and don't count me out.....I still have some tricks up my sleeve and will still be here as much as I ever have been.

I'll link the for-sale ad here when I finish writing it.

End of an Era.

hurtinfocus Don't worry, I still have it. Daily driving has been chipping away at it (literally)....and I never did get around to making and painting a set of side skirts for myself....was trying to get to them for Focus Rising this coming weekend but didn't get it done. Car is a little banged up from highways and parking lots but I still love it and I'll be at FR with it in Carlisle this weekend.
