Wow, somehow missed this, sorry. Once I find a replacement hood, the scoop will likely go up for sale, yeah. I don't know exactly when that will be, though. Between Christmas and other things, my money flow into the Focus has trickled to a stop. The bit I'll have available from taxes is going into maintenance, namely the timing assembly.

Not much to report lately. My local Lowe's started carrying white Plastidip, so I rolled for a while with white wheels. They look great, but cleaning was a monumental PITA--dirt and brake dust just cling to the rubberized surface, to the point that I could never get them fully white after the first week or two.

Everything's stripped back down, basically to how it looked when I bought it other than the tinted tails. I'm starting a new job that will bring quite a lot more income my way, so I'm hoping to put a lot more into the car this year.





My three-year-old was adamant about getting into at least one picture. :)

Cute little girl you got there on nice looking car. I really like that front grill with the color matching surround.

Thanks! I've noticed there are two different Euro grills: my style, which is the later version, and the earlier one with a less-pronounced border in all black. Pretty sure the Hofele grill is based on the older version, but I like mine. I think it rounds off the nose well.

Even most of the later model grills don't have the surround. They have the same grill pattern as yours but didn't have color matching border. Is it snap on piece or is it just the border that's been painted.

It's all one piece, painted to match the exterior.

I'm still mulling a replacement bumper, but if I decide to get the SVT bumper repaired (got a small gash on the driver's corner), I'll likely get that removed. In the meantime, though, gotta rock my Devils. ;)
