the front springs are actually on the strut already
it really seems like a somewhat-easy task. i'm sure it takes alot of time, but i'm sure i'd be able to do it. i think i have a oxy acetylene torch, but no gas. and a hand torch doesn't work.
you do make it sound very easy, lol

blue5, i was getting nervous getting closer to the edge.. lol. i got the feeling when you feel like you're extrememly close to something, but you really have a few feet to spare.

you know what i thought would be awesome. have a piece of most of the special edition foci. ex:
kona rack and/or floormats
svt hvacs, degas cover
sony sub box
saleen shift knob
mach audio headlights
roush springs
RS grille or wing

now that would be insanity.

I like that but I would make it
Kona Rack
Kona Mouldings on a dirt brown
SVT:
Bumpers
sideskirts
degas
subbox
motor/trans
SVTEAP interior
EAP wheels
Machs
RS spoiler
euro lights and grilles
coilovers!!!!

I didn't like the Mach audio or sony edition sub, they took most of your trunk

Let's see, I got Kona rack, SVT degas, euro rear, euro grill and RS wing. Guess I need a few more parts.

i really like the kona rack, but i have no use for it. i plan on getting svt hvacs, degas cover, door trim possibly 6spokes, kona floormats, roush or svt skirts. svt body kit.

i forgot i didn't tell anyone my plans. well (hopefully) i get this job doing resin infusion at a yacht 'factory' making almost 2x as i do now. so i want to get a beater for winter, store the focus, save save save until spring. then get an SVT, i would really love to find a supercharged one for under 7k.

most recent mod: Steeda Tri-Ax short throw shifter. it is only about an inch shorter, but makes a huge difference. i couldn't help but laugh when i first used it.
it really feels like you move it 1" to neutral and another 1" to the next gear. well, that's the best i can explain it, it really is shorter throws. i need to take it back out and lube up the joints again though, it's a little "stiff" still, takes a little give to put it in gear.
(don't mind how messy the car is.)





more parts on the way!!
