Sorry Fletch no fogs cuz no front end and no wheels.

Is this the same one Chris was talking about? Did it have the front spindles at least? What about the motor and trans?

It's actually a din and a half I believe, but a double din will fit with some slight modifications. There is a how to floating around here somewhere I'll see if I can find it.

Ask and ye shall receive!

Double Din install how to by our old buddy Dean, he used to have a very clean looking focus back in the day but got rid of it for a Land Cruiser or something like that. He was super cool. Anyways HERE it is.

Yes this is same one Chris was talking about. About the only thing left of the front end is the water bottle. Complete empty void at the front end. Axles were in the front floor boards. Svt grill was in back seat. Think I moved the knuckle w/maybe spindle for right side out of the way. Svt mirrors were still there. Drivers is still attached but passenger side is in the car.

When I was there, front calipers were tossed under some other stuff in front-passenger leg room. Other rear caliper is in the trunk if i remember correctly.

Rear bumper indeed is in good condition, which is nice because my one is crashed in one place and scratched allover. Tranny I'll be buying from them fooo shooo. Can't remember what they said about engine if it's there or not.

I'll be there tomorrow to check it all in detail.

Didn't ask about engine or tranny but now that I think about it they may have pulled and separated those and have them stored elsewhere. Didn't look all around the car since it was up in the air and raining abit. Couldn't see in hatch area.

Don't forget to take you climbing gear lol.
