Well after the visit with an Insurance Adjuster the current estimate is $1207 (minus $50 for the Comprehensive deductable), so I'm lookin at my options.
Think if I can get everything but the roof repaired with about $600 left I'll look into a special hood.

WOW!!! I will have to agree with many different people on the subject of being a car club, car shows, participation, ect... This is one of the main reasons I have NEVER asked to be a part of FOCALIZED. I am not talking bad about anyone as individuals because everyone has shown me that they are stand up guys. I WANT TO BE PART OF A CAR CLUB that is well organized and has quality cars (what ever make and model). I really would like to be part of a CAR CLUB that is all the same kind of car. That is why I even started posting on this forum.

MUCH LOVE TO EVERYONE ON HERE!!!

I have done several Timing belts as well and even one that is on the forum. I have all the tools needed and willing to help ANYONE! If you want a shop, I am the General Manager of one, If you want to help, my house is in Katy. As for a body shop, We use Pinnacle on Veterans Memorial (832-484-8888) Talk to Marty and tell him Matt from Louetta Automotive sent you.

thanx man, tomorrow I have a free afternoon, I will give Pinnacle a call see how much they ask.

as to timing belt, any chance you could help me to try to determine if the one I have has been changed? i can drop by your house.

as to belt swap operation I would like it to happen on the meet, make it social event :) with beer or soft drinks and a lot of bs talking about cars and whatever :D

All you have to do is pull off the top plastic cover and you can see the belt. It should be about 4 8mm bolts holding it on.

What Matt said. Just unbolt the top cover of the timing belt then you can see the belt and get an idea of what condition its in.

Well i figured out the a/c recirculation problem. I looked at the blend door and it doesnt open or close when the button pressed but i did open it since i know it wont close. not to find the motor.

I have been in car scene for some time now. I never get any of that. Ppl love my focus and don't even know what it is at times. I get respect from ppl who don't even know me. I never entered a car show just show up at many meets across Houston. I do all this because its been my passion as a child. I see it as why enter my car in a show just so it could get judge when its good in my eyes. Then again all the ppl i roll with have nice rides and dont enter either.Rather be known across many forums and ppl then be judged by few. Just my 2cents don't let this stuff get you mad. I've been to car shows where I see shitty cars win that just make no sense.

I agree with you! I may not have a super clean car, but I mod my car to my taste, for myself. People tell me they like my car, I say thanks. But getting more recognition for the foci crowd would be nice, but not at the expense of getting slapped in the face. Just my two cents.
