In a funny twist of fate, I was digging around in the garage and found a Nismo shift knob to replace my stock grungy one with all the paint missing at the top.

Only things left now are a short throw shifter (Do any of you have these? I am worried about it making it even more annoying to shift with that retarded armrest/center-console thingy.), side skirts, sway bars, and strut-tower bar.
Man! You don't waste any time, do you? LOL You can swap out the center console for the non-arm rest one for fairly cheap. I always hated that thing. If you get a STS, best to get a weighted shift knob too. That'll help with "notchy" shifting. If you need help with any of the installs, I'm in Mesquite and know my way around the Focus. I can also help with your dvd player install too. Just PM me

This is true, I don't waste much time. :) I have the upgraded sound system with the sub in the back, will this change the install process much with the amp being involved?

I love that movie...lol

The sub and amp shouldn't be an issue. I would have to look at the wiring and whatnot but as long as you have the right wire harness, should be cake.

It's worse than I thought with Ole' Yeller'. I bent my exhaust and whacked the power steering rack something fierce.

Really sucks, sleepyboy. I guess you had to unhook the battery to get the starter to quit? Hoping all is well when you get everything right again.

Yeah that was the only way. I ordered one from Rockauto instead of getting another cheap piece of crap again. Figure I'll try a different piece of crap lol
