Arrow Story of My Foci : A Picture Story

Well, it's been a long journey, but here's the story behind my foci:

1) I bought this beautiful 2002 SVT Focus around November, and loved every bit of it:




2) I was being irresponsible and hit the underside wall of a bridge going 80ish mph (bent both of my frame rails)


3) I didn't know what to do, and I thought I was out of luck because I only had liability insurance...but LUCKILY I found a focus svt shell for sale on the other board:


4) So then I added

This:


plus this:


to make this:




but that still left me with this:



So then after many moons, I parted it and parted it and ended up with this:



note the 3'' rims


and FINALLY after a ridiculously long time of me putting it off, this came and happened (note the guy in the pic isn't me!):



so now I have one great svtf and I'm living happily ever after hahaha. hope you enjoyed the story!

Good job on transfering the parts over to the other car...glad to see that one SVTF wasn't completely wasted.

Oh, and btw...so far i think your one of the few...if not THE only one with a red svtf with blue seats ;)

I'd rather have a Sonic Blue SVT with Red seats but to each his own.

Good work Pavan.
Love the ride.
