My 2011 SEL Build- Blue Flame: Picture Heavy
 
Figured I would start a build thread because I am just about done with the car!

When I first got it at 15k miles.

It Had to lose the chrome tail lights and mirror caps, immediately. As well as get some vent shades on the doors.

Line out converter wired into the rear door speakers so I could finally have my sub back. Went without one for 4 months!

3D carbon kit is on the way and that will pretty much be my final "big change". Might do the occasional appearance mod but I am liking the car. So far my favorite mod is the tint. It looks awesome with the blue!

What do you guys think?

Everything fits so well together, nice and clean

Thanks guys! I think the 3D Carbon kit will finish the look.

I used to like the looks of rice burners and stuff but now I am into making cars look clean!

I like that color of blue.

What kind of box is your sub in?

Just wondering if you found a place to buy a custom fit box. Or have any custom ideas. I have gone without mine for 2 months now. I'm not really in the mood to build a box, and nobody sells one for this gen Focus that I can find!

Mines just in a big 12inch box I bought back when Circuit City was still in business. Takes up maybe 1/3 of my trunk but I don't use my trunk anyway really.

Wow you've been busy modding. Car looks great, I really like the rims they look really good on your car.

Looking good, guess you won't be needing my lowering springs then huh?
