That's something I didn't know about, thanks! I'm debating on going with the ones on Andy's auto. After a small discount I found they are 199 plus shipping. Meh. Lol I'm not sure if I should, or just buy stock tailights instead.

back from the dead! lol Kidding, but here is some updates:

-I cut out the armrest back in august, and I put a Ziploc square container in the hole. I painted it to match my interior. I like it better than the armrest, but it definetly matches the cheapness of the rest of the interior... lol eventually I will replace the container with some sort of sack. (I was thinking about just putting a walmart bag in, and using it as a garbage can!)

-I took the rs collections replica bumper off a month or so ago. I am about to list it for sale actually. I put the stock one back on

-I bought a euro plate that says ooogahhh, with a cookie monster sticker above the plate. Im sure most of you have already seen it on facebook.

-I bought stock tails from Avie and put those on.

-Have I mentioned the glitter cover before? I cant remember. But back in august I painted a valve cover black and threw red glitter on it. its holding up surprisingly well.

I am currently driving my car about 700 miles a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less. So I haven't been in the modding mode since I started this new job. Oh yeah! I got a new job at UPS as a part time supervisor in the plant engineering department. Its 100 miles on my car every day, but its worth it. I actually should be getting an apartment at the end of November, as long as I get approved for it. (I am holding it, and as long as I get approved I will have it when the other people move out.) So this means that I will have more focus time, video game time, bmx time, and reading time... until spring anyways because I have to go back to school. In order to have this job, I have to be pursuing a 4 year technical degree, and I already have an associates.

Thank you! I will hopefully get pics. I feel really dumb, I spent all that time and money painting my car in April, and my car has only been washed twice since then... and still never waxed... So I still haven't taken decent pics since my car was painted. lol

Me too! haha I actually feel like the car looks better without tinted tails, more contrast. I will hopefully get pics before winter sets in.

Thanks! and yep, I took off the front bumper. I would just rather have the money at this point. Funny, all I needed was a euro plate and a cookie monster sticker to keep me happy. haha

Thanks! Same here, I don't really have a lot left in mind though. realistically, I would love a STS and that's about it... later down the road when I have another car, I would love to park the focus and stance it, and put down wood paneling of some kind in the hatch. But then again... I've been talking to Tim about some awesome wagon ideas... so maybe Ill just get a wagon. :D haha

This build thread is about to become a bit more interesting! I'm hopefully going to be purchasing a decent amount of parts this weekend. (Hopefully this post doesn't jinx it.)
