2012 Focus, TheMostHated

Figured I might as well put this here, it has been pulled from another site so it may not all make sense, chronologically.

A day or two after getting the car.

Then, got it lightly tinted at Detail Express in Keego Harbor. They are the only place to go for tint, detailing and wraping.






Random picture time!

The first winter of ownership, I decided not to run Pilot Sport 3s as a winter tire so, I grabbed up a set of like new Volvo steel wheels and hubcaps with like new Pilot Alpines.





Next, the car needed a little more low. At 572 watts RMS and a 1.2cube ported box tuned to 34 htz should do the trick.

I decided to lower the car a little so, grabbed these up for a deal.

They are for a 2010 Mazda 3 as, at the time of order no one made a coil over for the car except VMaxx. Their product only offered pre-load adjustment which was not enough for me.

Secret to easy strut removal, pull the pinch bolt out, flip it to the other side of the strut then, place a piece of metal in the pinch gap, tighten the bolt, this will allow the strut to drop out with ease (almost by itself).













The one and only thing that needed to be changed for these to work. The pinch bolt would not go through the tab due to the hook it has. A quick snip with some sheers and its all good.






The rear is only half way down.

After some discussion the original spoiler got traded for a ST spoiler.







I then cleaned it up a little.









The ST piece seems to actually work some what.



Preparation material for a stereo upgrade which, has been sourced from various people.

So, this happened today.
























Potentially the best, $34 I have ever spent.



WOOT WOOT!




Did some minor work this weekend. Got the sway bar in and the motor mount. Let me tell you.. The motor mount is a night and day difference and is the best $30 Ive spent on any car. I also washed it today.

Yummy.


YAY for euro parts!



Got some goodies in/back today! New springs for the front of the car which, should bring it down 3 more inches than it is now! Otaku Garage killed it on the pricing and shipping on those things. Then, got the side skirts and rear back from Bender Auto Body. They too killed it. Took them in on a Saturday and got a call Monday saying they were done.



There is a little flake in there.


So fresh, even the shop dust is still on all the parts.
