Ok, I meet up with 02_Z_X_3 to buy his white bumper off him for 30 bucks. i can finally replace my old broken bumper.





Then went to store to buy all the primer, paint, clear and sand paper to get it repainted. Plus I got so high temp paint of the valve cover finally.

Bro you really got your moneys worth from those tires!

New ones look great.

Is the bumper difficult to install or straightforward? Do you need any special tools?

I dunno yet. It looks pretty straight foward four bolts under grille and head lights some pop in pins for the fenders and the screws in the wheel wells.

I plan to keep it that way I like being the only spi at a focus meet it helps me stand out. High milage at that. I do want to do a head rebuild but I'm not worried right now she purrs like a hybrid.

I chuckled. That would be sweet but not in my budget or ability. Although that's exactly how I like to be different. I already have a couple things in mind I want to do that I don't think has been done on a focus .
