I have wire ties holding it in place till I can buy a plastic welder. Then I will make it all one piece.




Edit: I had to do some extra trimming on back I didn't take pics of. I left the three vertical bars in to give me something to mount to. So I had to trim some of the inside of the grille to fit around those bars.

The 00-04 is the nicest and cleanest looking style of sedan. The gen that came after than, then after that again, the cars lose their edges each time. The new 2012 5-dr even looks like a jelly-bean, just in my opinion.

Hey you have an Azera too? Those are really nice comfortable cars.

Hahaha. Bro I know this is a Focus forum so I cant talk to much, but the Hyundai Genesis sedan is awesome. In Canada you can get them used for cheap (they arent that popular here), it was in the movie Inception, looks like a cross between BMW 5 and Mercedes but without the cost.

Still I like the Focus more, hahah. Nice build so far, enjoy the car!

Ok to put this up to date.

I changed the crank position sensor.


burned my arm in the process cause I found it easier to get to the top bolt by reaching my arm down behind the block which was a little hot but it had to get done.



Changed my PCV valve (hose is still good)


Added a breather filter to the valve cover.


changed out the IAC sensor I don't have any pics of it but here I am getting ready to start working on it.


Finished I took the car for a test drive.

Next on my list is a full tune up and fuel filter. I got the filter already, I still shopping around for the other stuff.

Because I got bashed so bad when I did my last tune up due to the use of cheap Bosch plugs and auto zone parts I'm going to do it right this time. I'm ordering the Massive Ignition package: 8mm wires, and MSD coil and Motorcraft plugs, plugs are separate from the package.
