YellowJellyBean's ROTM Thread - A Basic Timeline

I'm up for July ROTM, so I figured I'd show people what I've got.

2006 Screaming Yellow Ford Focus ZX3 SES AKA Colonel Mustard

-=Go Fast Mods=-
Cosworth cold air intake
Focus-Power 91 octane tune (SCT XCal3)

-=Handle/Stop Mods=-
FRPP progressive springs
FRPP dampers
Centric brakes all around
Russel stainless steel brake lines
DOT 4 fluid (I've seen people list it as a mod, so why not)

-=Look Pretty Mods=-
F2 RS replica front bumper
SAP rear bumper
SAP spoiler
Flat black Rota Slip Streams (yes, Slip Stream is two words)
Contour shift knob
One-off rear window sticker
Tint on back three windows (not sure exactly how much, but really dark)
Sylvania SilverStar Ultra head light bulbs

-=Not-Yet-Installed, But Sitting At My House Mods=-
AEM wideband A/F gauge
Wings West sedan side skirts
Smoked tail lights
Hella fog lights

When I first got the car in late 2009 after totaling my Ion:




Took three months for the first mod, a Cosworth CAI (and license plate frame):




Even with the factory Sony system, the sound bug bit me, and I upgraded the front speakers. Rockford Fosgate Power 5.25" coaxials:



The next modifications on the car were the Eibach springs and FRPP dampers, providing a much needed drop. An F2 bumper soon followed:





Finally, in the last few months I picked up some flat black Rota Slip Streams and replaced the soft Eibach springs with FRPP progressive springs:

So yeah, that's it. If you like the car, vote for me :]
