I'm curious as to what your reasoning is behind this. I can fully support every cost I have there. If I have missed something, please do tell. I have been studying many pictures and doing a lot of planning already. The biggest issue I have right now is trying to source out a wheel bearing that can press into the focus knuckle and that my DSM hub can press into. The only other major cost that I'm unsure of is the lengt of the front axles. Even then, last I checked you could easily get a shaft machined with the correct splines to match up to a DSM inner and a focus outer CV joint for probably less than $100. I'm not trying to be as ass here, I just want someone to actually back up their claim that it is going to cost $15-$20 grand. Seems more like there are a bunch of jealous people out there that don't have the skills to pull this off. If I am wrong, then I will gladly appologize. To you supporters, thank you and I will keep you posted. Once I get a shell, I will start a new thread devoted to my build.
