Parts that I have but not installed yet:
Di-noc CF wrapped radio bezel, real CF guage cluster surround(for these I am waiting till I get my interior conversion to do it all in one shot), SVT mirrors.

Parts that I still need to order:
FSWERKS stealth exhaust, tune(not sure on who to go with yet)Wheels, haven't decided on either Tarmac's or ASA-AR1's, opinions on those please.

Once I get the Reiger lip installed, I am going to re-paint the entire car(same color) it needs it after 10 years.

I love how my car is coming together now! What do you all think?

Thanks! If there was a way to shorten the shaft, I would.

I personally love the clean euro look. Really wish ford would have kept those for the US market but I guess we fat American's get fat bumpers lol

We fat Americans got fat bumpers cuz of US crash laws lol. Remember the lines of the car were designed for the euro market and regulations.

Coming along nicely Brian.

Maybe in mid spring I can get mine going.

I hope you do! And in two weeks I'll have mine Euro'd tha' eff up... The painting is happening now, and then I help the guy mount the new Extreme Dimensions RS clone front fascia, SVT skirts, and a true EDM rear bumper. THEN, powder coating a valve cover, cold-air intake plumbing, oil pan, front and rear strut tower braces, codesvt B-pillar brace, 28mm rear sway bar & brackets...

I'm not jacking the thread; I swear to God! Yours is coming along nicely Pyro; you planning on gracing the field at FocusRising 2012?! I'll park next to ya.
