Long story short, I hate basketball goals. Also, put them down before a storm or park NOWHERE near them.

So, aside from completely ticked this morning at that sight, I've got some new picks to show!

I "shortened" my antenna. I found the right thread nut and decided to give it a shot. So far I haven't had any problems with reception, and it doesn't flop against my roof anymore.


Also, I decided to do some closeups on the paint/body damage that was there prior to the incident today.
  1. Bad front bumper
  2. light driver side fender damage
  3. light driver door damage
  4. rear hatch issues
  5. bad headliner









Pic of fire extinguisher



Here you can see the residue of some oil burning out of the valve cover. I need to get this fixed after I get my trailing arm bushing replaced.



Definitely loving this forum!
It does leave me with a lot of ideas and a lot less money though

Ouch. That basketball hoop accident sucks.

I had the same style crack in my hatch trim piece when I bought my car. The piece is bolted on right behind that spot so it must get a lot of tension behind there causing the crack. I got a replacement from a salvage yard and paint matched it for my car. You could probably find a prematch painted piece for your car if you can find a silver 1.5 generation Focus at a salvage yard.

Doesn't have to be a 1.5 gen all Foci from 2003 - 2007 came with the color-matched hatch strip

Thanks pyro! I'll get it fixed, I'm hoping before FocusFest 2013...

And Bryan, the junkyard is looking better every day!
I'm afraid that when I go I'll find an SVT donor car and I'll see too many parts I can't buy! But I know someone who knows a good Focus yard and we're finally getting a Pick-n-Pull here in Springfield. Just waiting for a good paycheck now!

I decided to have some fun with Photoshop! I was inspired by a fellow Fanatic, StealthZX3 at his thread here-http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...=303651&page=2

Enjoy! (Mind you it is not perfect.)

Nice chop!

The basketball hoop incident definitely sucks! And the inner driver's door looks really rough, i wonder how that even happened lol!
I like your extinguisher placement as well!

As for the hatch trim - you can really get any from a junk yard if you can find a hatch. Doesn't necessarily matter of the color, it can be painted with Duplicolor. What you have to be careful to is the bolts always snap off the back of those. I designed something to hold it on before my hatch got wrecked.
