Mile30 I have another package of clearcoat coming in from that internet company with the obvious name. Once that's in I'll get the car up skyward, prepped and get the side skirts clear coated again before this year's show. Them and the spoiler. Fangers crossed I have some breathing room before show-day!

Mile30 So, using Friday evening to gather needed supplies...

The power has been dwindling and I suspected the clutch. Turns out I was right.

The new one

New passenger axle had to go in, too. Damn.
I used the last few days to clean off the trans case in preparation of the install day, and the day was upon me.

Last night turned into an impromptu fix-it session when Craig stopped through en route to Florida. We (He) got his collapsed PCV hose sorted and off he went.

She rolls nice and tight again!!! Now to just put a few hundred break in miles on it all and then commence to the thrashings!

... making my autoX numbers instead of throwing a hundred build-dollars at magnets.

Focus Rising 2017 prep can go into the detailing phase and final bits before the show... see you lot out there (I hope!).

Mile30 Just hit the Lake Redman spring g2g... a smaller affair than usual, but still pretty fun! The weather cooperated with us and we were kinda part of a wedding this time around!

Ryokuro Yup. I saw them. That's most likely what I need. I haven't torn the door apart at all since it happened

Mile30 Did you get the pics I sent? The album that came from is still up on Photobucket (and a thread is up here and/or FJ).

Ryokuro Wish I was able to go to Redman this year... I'll be at the shop wrenchin' and making some extra money.

Matt, I tagged you in a M.A.D.E post on Facebook. You told me what I needed a long time ago, but I can't remember what it was or where to get it.

Mile30 I was shopping for autoX supplies last week and some suggested ad popped up for a company that sells really cool looking door decals and magnetic versions for race weekends this summer... just under $100 for the magnets for both door numbers and class lettering... no WAY I'm dropping that much coin for the idea! So, it sent me down a click hole looking up magnetic sheets and vinyl... first up was the carbon fiber mk1 Focus badges a fellow Fanatic has got himself making.

... and then there's the really exciting parts!!!!!

The spring Lake Redman focus g2g is this Saturday (tomorrow the 29th) @ William H. Kain state park in York, PA. If you're close enough but haven't ever been; join us! We'll have peoples bringing a variety of food & bev and it's a great little aside during the run up to Ford Nationals in June! Check it out on FB for more current updates.

(William H. Kain park: 274 Hess Farm Rd, York, PA 17407)

*I'll get more map & g2g details up after lunch!*

Welp... $900 to get everything back in there brand-new off some rando's shelves... Thank God for eBay! I snagged an open box deal for another Clutchmasters FX400 (this one has a four puck clutch W/ matching aluminum flywheel): $349 to my door!!!

Have I expressed how pleased and genuinely happy I am that the clutch finally ess'd the bed; I get to play with upgrades again, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! That spare transmission has been glaring at me in the hallway for months now, and the differential has me geekin' out... so long as I don't mangle anything during the install next weekend!

*OH... Lake Redman Focus meet is this Saturday in York, PA if anyone hasn't heard yet!*
