CNDRE1A-My new pumpkin svt

I picked a 04 focus svt last tuesday, needs quite a bit of loving. i still own my 05 st, just i couldn't say no to pumpkin with price i paid for it.

this weekend i replaced brake pads and rotors all way round, replaced one rear caliper and bled the system. neext weekend il replace the strut and shock mounts(making noise).

here are some pics...




Andrei started to get the haze from the headlights but need more work(thanks drei).


The interior...


need to get the seat sown...


any idea on how to get white paint off the seat?...


And Thanks to ANDREi/STARFURYT550 FOR LED LIGHT SWAP....




these pics were taken during the day/daylight and can still see the blue light. they are great and i will retake some pics in night too. if your interested pm me, or andrei.

I also just gave a quick wash but it needs to be detailed hopefully on Wednesday.

Congrats, nice ride. The fun and satisfaction of restoring that ride to "like-new" will be great!

Thanks, it has 127k miles, I need to replace timing belt, it will need new clutch next year(original), it does take couple cranks to turn over- going to test alternator and starter today at work. Will need to replace strut and shock mounts next weekend otherwise it runs good. Had suspension, coolant hoses, thermostat housing, thermostat and rack and pinnion within last 2 yrs

He's referring to the timing belt not the throttle body.

Just an FYI.
