My only mod would have to be the plastidip on the headlights haha..

But nah I'm gonna keep it stock.

But if i was going to do anything, I would turbo it.

Looking at your mod list though, that has to be TONS of fun!!

Read the whole thread!
I'm so impressed by your saleen!
By the way, I say 'dag' too hahaha.

See i've only been serious in the car game for, about a year now? I'm only 21. Bought my first car a year ago. I have hardly any mechanical experience so i'm a huge noob when it comes to fixing stuff. Yesterday I was teased by a girl because I don't know how to change my brake pads. I mean I've never had to so I've never learned. My merkur's taught me a few things though haha. My plans are the saleen's gonna be my economy car and the merkur's my project car. Right now i'm taking my sweet time with it, but i'm working on swapping the engine, and transmission, from my parts car merkur over to my good merkur that i blew up drag racing.
The story on how I got my saleen, It was that my daily wasn't going to pass safety, something about its front wheels moving like 3-4 inches when braking and the wheels pointing towards each other? So I just thought, screw this car. Time to get a loan on something else that's more reliable. (It was a 1982 celica supra, Beater status) When browsing through the classifieds, Boom, my saleen focus popped up. took it for a test drive, And here I am today.

haha! glad you enjoyed it! Alot of time went into getting things right that i did not post but it all came together in the end.

We all start somewhere when it comes to working on cars so you have a great platform that wont cost bunches to maintain. I Learned about turbos mostly from my GST eclipse. Ive done so much to the focus and ran into common issues so if you have any questions feel free to ask. Ill do my best to help if i can.

Where i'm at now is I still can't find that special plastic wrench for the wheels.
I figure some sort of monkey wrench with a rag will work though..
I wanna put my merkur wheels on the Sally to see how they look ;)

But thanks, i'll have to take you up on that!
I think i need a new battery, Finally wrestled the battery cover off and saw it was a motorcraft battery, I think that's the original... When starting the car the radio and time completely reset, and it takes a second to get started sometimes.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/171109633323?lpid=82 this is the only one i've found
