Updated pics of new performance mods and my accident...(56K wait a while)

Well I finally got my car up and running again, and the shop did a really good job on fixing the damage. The final total...Old wrecked door for new silver door that was color matched, rear quarter panel pulled out, bondo'ed, and repainted, door sill had to be repaired, Konig rim had to be repaired, and new tire need to be bought. So the wreck pics will go first followed by the mod pics...

Door


Rear quarter panel


Bottom of driver's side door (note broken glass)


Door sill


Inside view of bottom of the door


Outside view of bottom of the door


Rear Quarter Panel


The Konig had a cut in the lip, but now I can't even tell where it was. The tire had a chunk sliced off, but it's still drivable and I'll use it as a spare. Now here come the new stuff that went on a couple days before the accident...

OBX 4-2-1 Race Header




2.25" Flexpipe from McNews


Niteshaded Taillights



VF Engineering Rear Motor Mount + Ford Racing UDP + Gatorback Belt


New Sony Headunit that I can finally plug my Ipod into (stock headunit quit playing CDs)


And finally I cleaned out the back a little


Then my girlfriend got a shot of my car in a cool reflection off a NASCAR style truck trailer on the highway


That's it for now, I'll take some more pics tomorrow of the finished results from the shop. The car looks really good, but I still need to get my front window re-tinted (at no cost to me) and I need to get another Zetec vinyl for the rear quarter panel. Other than that, I finally changed to Royal Purple 5W20 to match my RP Synchromax tranny oil. Can't wait to get start pushin' my car again!!

heelflip101 -- It's an OBX race header not a Tsudo. I don't know what your trying to say about the color. It turns that way when it's heated up. I personally think it's cool, but I think that I am going to heatwrap it regardless.

rocktheXZ3 -- the seats are from Nopi's company Number One. They are called Elite 7's. At the time I got the last pair they had in stock for $80 each, which wasn't bad at all. But on their website I see that they have them in stock for $141 after rebate, they aren't bad seats at all for the price.

No thankfully the frame was spared, and even the alignment is straight on (I made them do an alignment on the front and back and everything was in spec). I guess those crazy rally guys weren't crazy when they picked the Focus chassis to build on. These little suckers are pretty tough and can take a beating!

Ouch on the damage, but looks like it has come a long way since then.
Looking good.
