Not a lot of progress lately...my wheels are sitting pretty in my kitchen, but I still haven't gotten my tires or coilovers yet. I'm still waiting on someone to buy my 200SX so I can have some extra funds.

I did knock out a cheap and easy mod. Decided to paint my fog light bezels black and ordered some Lamin-X for the foglights. So after 4 coats of Plastidip and 1 coat of Gloss Black High Temp engine enamel and 2 layers of yellow Lamin-X, I ended up with this...



Also had a guy interested in trading his 88 BMW 735i 5 speed for my KA swapped 86 200SX, but I don't know if I'm gonna go through with it...

The fog lights and bezels look great!

That Bimmer is tempting, pretty cool. I would imagine a manual 7 series would be rare?

Allegedly only 200 1988 BMW 7 series with a manual were imported...I dunno though, not a bimmer guy...

I know, me neither. Gonna get some funds soon so I can get my coilovers and tires...I had the cash ready to go, but spent around $400 to get my garage door upgraded and fixed, then another $1000 went to my black lab and some health issues she's been having. Every time I'm ready to pull the trigger on some parts, something unexpected happens!

Totally hear you. Every time I want to do a mod this kind of things happens to me as well.

OK!! So I finally sold my 200SX and now have a little bit of cash to play with...I've already put a best offer bid for some KSports on ebay, if I can get the price of coilovers to under $800, I think I might have enough cash to get some other items after I get my tires.

I'm going to go ahead and order my tires on Monday, and I also have to look around for some lug nuts. Quick question for you 2012 guys with aftermarket wheels...did ya'll have your TPMS sensors rebuilt and install on your new wheels or just said screw it and deal with the tire light? I ask because I'm a little iffy about all the electronics on this new Focus and how it might react if I don't have the sensors installed on my new rims...

Other than that, if I can get the price of the coilovers down a little, I might have some cash to either get the Steeda rear sway or Steeda STS kit or MS3 RMM...don't know which I want to go with...

I ordered a second set of TPMS sensors and had them installed in my new wheels. Now both sets have the appropriate sensors and I don't get any lights.

I bought them through the parts counter at work, about $140-$150 for the set. Your price may vary.
