Need fresh tint! Then , just roll it out!
Sweeet! Good luck with all of that! Make sure to post some pics when you get it done!

I decided I will post some future plans that I hope to get done this year.
-When my tax return money comes in I was going to take my car to my dads friend and see how much he would charge me for taking all the dents out of my car and painting it. Might even have him do a silver or gray or red euro stripe on my hood.
-I want a metal tube instead of the plastic intake tube. I was shocked to see FSwerks CAI didnt have one while alot of other companies did. It probably wont make a difference, but I heard that when the bumpy ridges on the plastic tube are gone, it will make me get better mpg. lol plus it looks nicer!
-tint foglights yellow
-do foglight mod
-Im talking to a couple people about getting my car lowered. My dads friend is looking into kits for my car but I imagine they will be pricey. there is a guy on here with ford racing springs that said he would sell them to me if the first guy doesnt buy them.

I'll miss those rims on your car but a lowering kit will make up for most of it.

Yeah thats how I felt. Plus, once I get a real job and my own place I will just buy the rims back from my dad. I feel like it all works out because the wheels will stay in my family. lol My dad said this weekend sometime we can swap wheels and see what they look like. I would of course obviously plastidip theirs.

That's very true about staying in the family. Just be warned, if you dad is anything like mine, you may never be able to get them back from him.

hahaha good point. I am wondering what my mom will say though because she is the one that uses the Focus. My dad has a zx2 as a daily. Its awesome tho. We bought it for 800 and a tree fell on it and didnt leave a scratch or anything. Then he hit a deer with it going 55 and there is only a couple small dents. Then he glued this tiny skull thing to the hood. We jump it in the backyard alot. lol
