Focus Graveyard
 
tomorrow morning, i'm going to a local focus scrap yard an hour away. this to me is like a kid going to Chuck E' Cheeses. i am looking for a few parts off an SVT like the front lip, upper and lower grille, and heater knob bezel. hopefully i can get them at a good price. i was told there are 5-9 SVT's but i think i heard they are mostly gutted. there are 15 zx3's. hopefully i find what i'm looking for. otherwise, i will see what else i can salvage. i will post pics tomorrow of my finds. wish me luck!

Good luck. Im headed to the pull-a-part Sunday to get some things to play with like a new hood, a lip, and maybe some center caps off a BMW or Audi for my new wheels if I can find some.

I was at my local "Pick N Pull." Brought a door handle, calipers, and front brake pads. Fortunately, they were all in good condition. [headbang]

Nonetheless, good luck! In your search. [thumb]

i wish there were focus hatches at my local pick n pulls...
i don't think i have ever seen a junk'd svt before, but rumor has it there is one near me somewhere.... its like a ghost.

i'm back from the yard. after almost 2 hours of taking the wrong way and taking back roads, some mild profanity, and many cd's i made it. it was rediculous.
i didn't get as many pics for you guys as i would have liked, because the guy was hovering around me.
there were so many SVTs and zx3's. i found a few parts i liked, but i didn't come with a big enough budget. [:(]
the first thing you see coming into the yard was a beautiful SVT. i never realized how many extra options the SVT had before i took a look inside. it had the blue door inserts that i planned on doing. i now want the SVT gauges, spoiler, 6spd trans, front and rear bumpers, upper grille and blue upholstered seats.

walking back a little ways, there was a 4dr svt with these sweet front fender scoop things. i apologize for the sideways pics.

the hatches basically went as far as the eye could see.

i did find a very clean front lower svt grille and rear svt bumper. $25 for the grille.

i found some nice silver svt heater controls. $25

i was really interested in the svt spoiler, front upper and lower grille, and the heater controls. i am definitely planning on going back with a nice stack of bills to blow. i only walked away with a hatch cover to hide my subs when i get them.

oh, and i also saw a zx3 on the highway right after which i flew past.
