'00 Sedan Build thread. Stanced w/ a little SVT.

The first thing I did was spray the wheels black before I even got my license and have been "modding" the car ever since that day.. This is copied from FJ with some minor mods to the thread.


7/22/12 UPDATE: RECAROS!!!!!!!!(Rears aren't in yet)


4/22/12 UPDATE: (All HRE's are on and have been driven around for almost 2 weeks now. I'm in love.)



4/8/12 UPDATE:


4/5/12 UPDATE: (Going for a ride.)


3/13/12 Spring Break UPDATE (SVT mirrors finally on and windows tinted):


2/25/12 UPDATE: (Thanks Germany)



2/22/12 UPDATE: (Waffles need another color coat and some clear, but here's the wheel porn..)






Before FR'13 I have a huge to do list that seems to be never ending. (Like every damn project, right?)
-Get new tires.
-Finish polishing my HRE's again.
-Euro grills.
-Euro front bumper installed.
-Euro rear bumper if I can find one.
-Color match door pulls.
-Pulled front fenders more evenly.
-Everything below door card height in interior goes black.
-Gray/White Alcantara all pillars/headliner.
-Anything else I add haha.

Pics-










Custom homemade spring isolators. Roofing rubber .08 inches
























Trying to get the true color of the HRE's..Never works..






Putting the GF to work on the HRE's:


The new power plant:


I have a whole new suspension setup and plan to have that and the SVT swap done for Focus Rising in June.

Thanks for looking,
Matt

Thanks. Yes, the bumper still needs to be painted. I have a gallon of CD silver here, but dad's toys get booth priority.

Yes, I sold the ones in those pics to him. I love how they look like a 17" version of the stock split 5-spokes with a nice 1.5" lip. I liked them on my car, but honestly I love them on his. I love my HRE's. They're very rare and when I called HRE for parts they didn't even know they had drilled centers in 4x108.

Yea I meet jonathan at the last meet cool dude, and I love the car, wheels and stance.

I will admit, they do look good on the second gen. I love the HREs on your sedan. I won't be at FR this year, but I plan to go next.

I hope to see it in person then.

I'm unsure if I'll be at FR this year, but I know even if it comes down to it, I'll be rolling in on saturday morning at 3 am if I have to. Regardless if I have the money to be there lol.
