Thanksgiving car day
 
Hi all;
To my Canadian brethren - Happy Thanksgiving! With the long weekend, I was able to get away from school for a few days and head to my cousin's place.

In addition to the obligatory family time and turkey-eating, this gave me the opportunity to get some parts on that I've been sitting on for a while.
[Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics, I forgot my camera in my dorm [facepalm]

Added a couple FSWerks stickers to go with my Support Our Troops:

After I got the stock intake off, I realized we didn't have any ramps - looks like I had to take the AMG to Canadian Tire.[clap]

Horrible picture of the old system:

Speakers going in (my hardest speaker installation to date):

And one final touch I thought of at the end of the day:

I took some Ford touch-up paint and filled in the "FOCUS" on the dash. Nothing too radical, but I like the subtle accent.

The Springs didn't go in today - we didn't have a facility available - but I'm looking forward to getting them in, and when I do hopefully I'll have my camera available.

Thanks for looking! Comments are always appreciated, and enjoy your (long) weekend everyone [cheers]

Thanksgiving?

I like the accent on the dash, too bad the you didn't get low today. Now you really need to clean that engine bay!

katiekay 10-06-2012 09:31 PM

What speakers did you put in?

BlueFlik 10-06-2012 09:41 PM

Thanks!
Yes, Canadian Thanksgiving is the second Monday of October. A full wash - including engine bay - is on my schedule for tomorrow, trust me. And I put in Sound Ordnance P-57s.

Looks good, and wash that engine, lol!! Also it looks to have paint all over the dash around the letters, hope it comes off!

this!

looks good anyways, how does that intake feel?

BlueFlik 10-06-2012 10:36 PM

Thanks! I took that pic right after applying the paint, and was able to get it off the dash no problem. [thumb]

Intake feels really nice - between it and the flash tune, the car drives completely differently than it did this morning.

stealthzx3 10-06-2012 10:42 PM
