That's what I did. I took the stripe off about a month ago and am very glad I did. It looks so much better now.

You have a race car too? Your collection just keeps getting better and better. Do you have anything else or just the Foci, Mustang, and racer (Focus?).

I also have a 1994 S10 that I inherated from my grandfather. So my stable is my focus, mustang, s10, and formula vee race car.

Now I remember that Formula vee car. You posted pictures of it a while bask if I'm not mistaken. That is a nice collection.

I'm hoping one day to start branching beyond this car but it takes time. Plus, I don't storage for more than one vehicle right now.

You are correct. Just getting it ready for this season. Not much work just making it my own. I'm running into that problem with no more storage. One reason I don't have any other projects at this time. Once I get more storage, I have a few things I would like to get to. lol

Time for a quick update on the car. Nothing major has happened, just a few little things.

On my last full fuel mileage run, I got 27.8 mpgs which is pretty good for me. The highest I've ever gotten was a 28.2 mpg and that took a lot of work compared to my last run so things are looking good.

Last Friday, my DS hand brake cable broke so I don't have any hand brake right now. The cable was getting really rusty so it was only a matter of time before it broke. Hopefully, a new one will be on there by the weekend.

And lastly, I bought two orange bulbs for the front turn signals. I can now officially say that the my grill cost me about $5 to convert from a OEM Svt grill (or any other Focus grill for that matter) to the state it is in now.

The guy I bought my focus from never used the hand brake, he just left it in gear when ever he parked it So of course the handbrake would freeze and lock the rear brakes if you ever pulled it, but it was nothing that a lot of penetrating oil, a hammer, and pulling the brake about 100 times couldn't fix

When I got my car a couple years ago, the DS brake was actually unhooked so only the PS brake was working. I hooked it back up, wasn't paying attention, and the brakes locked on and I burned through the rear brake in about two days. [more ] It still liked to lock on once in a while but with a new unrusty cable, it should never be a problem again.
