It really has, hasn't it? Thanks for all the positive comments everybody. The exterior / appearance is almost where I want it. Just a couple of things left to do. Need to repaint bumpers still. Chips and fading. Eventually I want to remove the body kit and realign it. There are a couple of places that don't line up quite right. Anybody want to come and help for a weekend?? I'll provide pizza and beer.

Then it's on to the performance. That's still down the road though. As far as the drums go, I'm planning on doing a disk conversion next spring, so I'm not going to worry about that right now.

Really clean ride man, love what you have been doing to it.

x2 on the rear drums though. I opted not to paint mine cause I hate drums. My
suggestion is to find one of the increasingly rare disk brake conversion kits. I
know Fordtec has some used kits if you can't find any online. Cause heaven
knows I didn't find any. THEN paint the calipers on it

But I do really like what you have done. Very clean

I took it off of the old hood. It's in storage. If I ever decide to sell the focus, I want to have all of the Saleen stuff that goes with it.

The only Saleen I've ever seen and thoroughly enjoyed.

I love this car. The little things you've done to it have made it stand out so much more.

Now just get that ST steering wheel like we discussed.. and maybe an RS wing?
