I guess it's time for me to make a FR11 build thread!!!

Well I've been glad to see everyone elses build threads for Focus Rising '11, so I decided to make one too (for my first Carlisle car show)!!!

Here's how it looked last summer/fall...


Then I hydrolocked the engine, got a beater for the winter, and replaced the engine, so it's been sitting in the garage all winter as I've been gathering parts to put on this spring... Here are the pictures from today...







I have a lot of plans to finish in the next couple months, and I'll track the progress in this thread.

The parts I have/ordered and need installed:
-Top Speed Performance complete street turbo kit
-Corbeau CR1 Seats and brackets----- Completed Post #18
-RS steering wheel
-Mattig drop mirrors
-Massive chrome trophy valve cover
-Massive Massacre front strut tower bar
-Tinted & polished taillights
-Early 2k intake manifold
-new, bigger, blue amp power wire----- Complete
-Redline Tuning hood struts----- Completed Post #20
-Autometer cobalt boost gauge
-Greddy turbo timer
-Triple gauge pod
-AEM wideband gauge

The parts I still need to order:
-polished cam gears
-4 new tires

I know there's a few other things I'll be doing, but these are the main things. And I might do even more than this, if I find any great deals on any other things that I wanna eventually do. Thanks for looking, and if anyone has any suggestions or anything, lmk!!!
