That is a -10 male to male adapter. It threads right into the rubber grommet.

We are staying with the black paint for now but we are open for suggestions on paint schemes.

^^Digital camo? Just do a vynil body wrap, painting digi will make most painters want to bring a real gun to work instead of a paint gun, lol.

Update:
Got the car on the scales today. It looks like as we would race the car, with a 1/2 tank of fuel, it weighs 2130lbs. Which is right around the goal we where shooting for. This is still with stock glass, full doors and our turbo kit.

This puts us right at 2300 w/driver.

You should replace the stock glass with lexan glass to save weight plus it's shatterproof and scratch resistant.

You can actually scratch lexan pretty easily. It is actually on our list of things to do once we get some times in, we are not going to do anything else to this car until it goes down the track.

That manifold is beautiful!

Great job on saving a Focus from the scrap yard.

Got the rollbar finished and painted. Installed the harnesses and seat.
Only thing really left is the windshield and a few odds and ends.
