Continuous's Build Thread
Since I made one of these on Focal Jet I figured I'd start one on here as well.
So basically I've recently purchased a 2004 ZX3 SVT in Infra-red and I decided that I needed a build thread. Just to give you all some of my background I am a Ford Certified Service Technician so the work I'll be doing is somewhat easier becuase I have access to the manuals. That doesn't mean I won't share that information with any of my fellow Foci drivers just hit me up if you need the info. I setup my build lists by categories and I may need some of your help to decide which manufacturer to go with in some of the parts I purchase. Any of the parts I have options afterwards are where you my fellow Foci enthusiasts come in if you have an opinion on the choices let them be known. Now my car besides the wheels the car is completely stock. So here are my categories:
Ebay Hvac Knobs
Shift Knob(not sure what one I want yet open to suggestions)
E Brake Handle(same as above)
Redline Accessories Shift and Ebrake Boots

How she looked as I bought her:
Then I Deleted the Lunchbox and attempted to hollow the cat was not so successful with the cat.
I received some late presents in the mail in the last couple days, yesterday I received this:
I just did a test fit and install of it today still will be removed and plastidipped black but doesn't look too bad, I will take some daylight pics though cause the lamps behind it aren't as visible in normal daylight.
And last but not least I received one of my two ORP's today as well as my Plastidip and Glossifier from Dipyourcar.com.
(Dogs can't keep their noses out of the way sometimes, this one will be for inspection purposes since we just have a visual inspection of emissions devices and this one looks like it has a cat in it yet.)
(This is for the Grille which is staying matte black and the rest is for my roof doing black then glossifier.)
