Story of My Foci : A Picture Story
 
Well, it's been a long journey, but here's the story behind my foci:

1) I bought this beautiful 2002 SVT Focus around November, and loved every bit of it:

2) I was being irresponsible and hit the underside wall of a bridge going 80ish mph (bent both of my frame rails)

3) I didn't know what to do, and I thought I was out of luck because I only had liability insurance...but LUCKILY I found a focus svt shell for sale on the other board:

4) So then I added

This:

plus this:

to make this:

but that still left me with this:

So then after many moons, I parted it and parted it and ended up with this:

note the 3'' rims [hihi]

and FINALLY after a ridiculously long time of me putting it off, this came and happened (note the guy in the pic isn't me!):

You're in Fremont? WTF? Hit me up!

Good job on transfering the parts over to the other car...glad to see that one SVTF wasn't completely wasted.

Oh, and btw...so far i think your one of the few...if not THE only one with a red svtf with blue seats ;)

I'd rather have a Sonic Blue SVT with Red seats but to each his own.

Good work Pavan. [thumb]
Love the ride.
