Resurrection thread of 1Sloho

so im breaking down and doing a sort of "build thread" for my car. ive kinda let some things go, and its time to turn it around and start getting back into things. its going to be a long process as the wife and i are house shopping, and im trying to move up at my job. so the modifications and whatnot arent going to be quick.

first things first, my front bumper has been through hell, and it shows. the paint is cracked and chipping, and one fog light housing is cracked. the side markers never really sat flush either. so last weekend, this arrived...

ive started ordering parts for the bumper. have some smoked bumper indicators on the way. hoping those should arrive in the next few days. the wife said she'll buy me a lower euro grill for christmas, so thatll be takin care of. still need to purchase the tow cover fog lights and.......lip. im undecided right now with which to get. its either going to be the....

jms lip...


or this reiger lip...


im kinda leaning towards the reiger as its cleaner and more readily available. lol

so thats on my "recent to-do" list. i will update and add to this thread as i fix, or change out certain things on the focus. oh, and heres a pic of how she currently sits...

I like the JMS lip. That version of the Reiger looks like the cheap Wings West lip IMO. I like your wheels too
