Saleen Progress (56k go home!)
 
So I haven't posted here for awhile. I have done a lot of stuff to the focus in the last month or so, and I thought it would be a good idea to put up a thread showing what it looked like when I bought it and what it looks like now. I'll try not to post EVERY picture I have. [dunno]

When I bought it, it was a mess. But I got a great deal on it. I don't have any pics of when I picked it up, but it had pretty bad hail damage. The windshield was busted up pretty bad, dent in the hood where previous owner shut it on the prop, and the Saleen wing was completely destroyed. It also had ugly yellow stuff all over it. Calipers, underhood wiring, strut tower brace. [thumbd][thumbd][thumbd] I did all the major maintenance, plugs, brakes, and complete mechanical inspection. Engine had 2 burned valves, so minor engine rebuild was done. All new valves and lifters. Had hail dents removed / repaired.

It's been a long road to where it is now, but it's almost where I want it.

A list of everything I've added since then, and pics.

Nice! Really like these Salleens [cool]

As gaudy as I think the Saleens are, the hood scoop/wing delete, and the wheels really make yours look slick.
