really even with the small crack? you'd have to get them repaired first. and one is missing a centercap insert (might be hard to find, dunno) i can pm you a pic with the crack if your serious and we can take it from there.


small update, and a part failure.

for the past couple weeks my a/c hasnt blown cold like it used to. it was so cold i never had to use the max a/c button. so i did some poking around by the a/c lines and found one of them is leaking hardcore. here is a pic of where she blew.

the green ocated metal lines i nthe center of the pic are the air con lines that go into the car. there is a sensor on the one line (dont know if its leaking from there but when i pulled the rubber line cover off of the upper line where it bends the thing was so soaked in stuff its unsavable, so i trashed it.) i believe the green to be a dye ford puts in teh refridgerant.

also did tihs with my droplight for funzies

lets see your degas cover do taht!!! lol.

Your battery may need relocated again, when the C-2 charger pipes are installed.

^^ ive got a solution to that. a 3" diameter section about 4 inches long or less if i can get away with it. basicly it'll be a spacer. i may also weld up a bov flange on it and run the front mount intercooler. i have a greddy bov i could use. just need a flange.

bit of an update it may be a little bit before pics though. ive managed to cobble together a set of saleen springs and koni orange dampers. i just got the front done today. teh 2 inch drop looks really good. but the back makes it look like a street rod now.

ive been holding out on you guys. ive gotten the suspension work done. all in my driveway without having to cut anything, which is a plus for a wisconsin focus that sees snow duty.
ive also mounted my sap wing after plastidipping it. if the dip doesn't hold up its going to be painted with truck bedliner stuff. i also painted my valvecover copper metallic. i messed it up the first time since it started raining so i had to wire wheel the crap out of it to get it back toa useable surface. its no where near perfect. but my thoughs are its an engine, it lives in a dirty place. it jsut needs to look good from a ways out. i may try a full polish vc in the future. anyways on with teh train wreck.... i mean photos, lol.




found this is the easiest method ever to get the rear springs in and out. its a gear type bottle jack found in explorers and mountaineers. mounted like so it gives you plenty of room to get springs in and out. out requires a prybar, so be careful! using this mthod allowed me to slip my saleen springs in with little effort. your results may vary depending on spring length.

the end result is this...



its a two finger wheel gap all the way around. what i consider perfect height for a non coil over focus

you can see teh vc pretty well in this pic. things you cant see are the plastidipped front strut brace, and the silencer pulled from the intake box. it whistles very faintly at a certain rpm now. which is enough sound for me till its boosted.

Where can I pick up that battery mount? Isn't there a high crank battery like that available?

Great looking car! About how long do you say it took to replace the springs?
