Keep the mods coming Tim! The grilles really do clean up the look in the front. Makes me wonder why they even put the stupid grille markers in the US Focus at all...

You getting a Borla from somewhere? That one on CL?

it's still a ford emblem, it's just extremely faded. i plan on tinting it like my svt grille. i can't just swap out the emblems because it has the euro lock on it

Yep, that's about it. With the SVT, you have to cut the stock exhaust off between the resonator and muffler, not sure if Zetec is the same. That part may be a pain depending on how much rust you have on the bolts for your hangers. We had to cut the bolts off. After that though, its all a simple bolt on procedure, starting at the flex and moving backwards, hanging and clamping as you go. But wait until everything is all together before tightening everything up tight.

Yeah dying isn't fun. Ramps and jackstands should do the trick, I had a lift to do mine though. Makes much easier!
