Meet the KRAKEN!!

^^a few members of Team Focalize

So I have been a member of FF for almost 4 years now and FINALLY decided to do a build thread.
So here goes.
I was driving on July 4th, 2008, in my 1994 Toyota Camry, and the throttle got stuck. Long story short, threw a rod and punched a cell phone sized hole in the block.
I got my 2004 Black SVT in July of 2008. I bought it from Carmax, and got ROYALLY SCREWED on the price. But all things considered, I don't mind because I love it. It's my baby and gets more attention than my girlfriend.

Its been through a few stages, and sadly I can't find the pic from the day I bought it. Sticker showed 11,600, after financing and warranty, I ended up paying 18k for it. I had no down payment, and it was my first car purchase. Like I said, I got screwed but i still love it.

Mod List:
Exterior (as it sits)
Green HID's for lows
Matching HID's in fogs
Fogs covered in Lexan and nightshaded
Roush Midwing
Custom "diffusers" on SVT spoiler
Billet Gas Door
Side Exit Exhaust
Center exit SVT diffuser
Shorty Antenna
Green LEDs in grills
Euro Grill

LED's for floorboards (green)
purple leds in cupholders
Kenwood Excelon double din touch screen
PS2 in glovebox
Kenwood Excelon complete stereo

Tom's Tune
Megan Racing Springs
KYB AGX shocks/struts
CFM Adjustable STS

this pic sums it all up, minus the misspelling.

I apologize for not having a "timeline style" thread, I just posted as things came to my mind.

^^As of a month ago.

In the first year, I did tint. I drove it that way until I blew the Audiophile sub in the back. It then got replaced with the stereo out of my old car. All Kenwood Excelon.. CF speakers, mono amp for the subs, 4 channel for the coaxils and components, 300w tweeters in the front doors

I bought a used Saleen suspension kit and loved the way it rode. Shortly there after, I got my first set of aftermarket rims (ASA AR6's) 18x7.5.

First accident
Went to Austin, TX, for my birthday and got rear-ended by a Marine in a 89 Ford Ranger who was deploying 3 days later. I felt bad for him, and didn't want to pursue it through insurance, but that is why you pay for it. (He is still doing alright, I have sorta touched base with him a few times)

2nd accident
I was driving along with traffic, and then the car in front of me darted over. I looked up and there was a SUV stopped in the middle of the road at a GREEN LIGHT!!! I almost missed her but kinda clipped her exhaust.

I had a little accident #3, and destroyed one of the 18's... which have been discontinued.

I did a vinyl wrap on my car. Some people said it was rice, some people loved it. I did it because it was what i wanted to do, and my inspiration was panel-style of the old Woodies.

LED fun

Controls go here for now.. soon will do switch panel in "ash tray"

Side Exit

Pending Mods

getting wrapped in CF vinyl. scoop made functional heat extractor

new 18s getting painted color shift (emerald green to deep violet)

Oh, and uh..

Awesome man. Glad you finally got this thread of the ground and I love the work you've done on your car.

One question for you. Where did you get or how did you do your dead petal. I really like it.

Car is looking awesome! Quick question, I have always been wondering how to put an aftermarket pedal on the plastic gas pedal, do you just screw it in like you would with a metal pedal?
