Introduction (with pics) *56k warning*

Hey everybody, thought it would be a good idea to take the time an introduce myself. I'm Steven and I'm a local of San Antonio, though I travel to San Marcos and Austin pretty often for work/school. I drive a 06 ZX4 ST that I have owned basically since new. So far I have only done the little things (Custom SRI with AEM filter, Copper plugs and Borla cat-back) though I have a living room full of goodies just waiting to get installed (pics below) I'll make a separate thread to see if anyone wants to participate. I am fairly green in regards to the focus but have owned and worked of a few DSM's both AWD and FWD, a Saturn, 1990 LTD, and my present driveway paperweight a 1977 dodge Power Wagon. I look forward to meeting some other enthusiasts in the area and could always use an extra hand or just advice when throwing around the wrenches.

And the Goodies >>>>

Welcome aboard! That's a nice set of goodies You got laying around. If You bring 'em up to Austin one of these days, I bet We could get it sorted out for You. Hell, We could do Your rims in a damn parking lot in a matter of minutes once they get some rubber.

I see You have a red ST, and with those rims You will look like My opposite:





Now We need to see Your car as she sits today, not just boxes of fun stuff.

John-- Thanks for the welcome, and yea I'm pretty anxious to see how this setup will perform. I have heard nothing but good things about the FRPP dynamics kit so I have my fingers crossed. I'm also pleased to announce that a new Saleen RSB will be going into the pile.

Jason-- That ST is sick, I love the red accents in the lower grill and passenger side windshield... she is super clean. Is that your ZX3 in the background also, both cars look amazing. Heck man, If your serious about lending a hand we can exchange info and work out a mutually good date to do the work. I sure would appreciate the help and some fellow focus company. I'm planning on throwing some Federal 595's on the rims soon (next week or two) and just have one main spot of rash I need to address and I'll be GTG.

They may have some rubber but they don't look street legal. :-)
