Smile Ford Focus, How I love thee...

2006 Ford Focus, How I love thee. Let me count the ways.

- I fixed all your loose and snapped hose and throttle cable mounts.
- I fixed your AC vent every so gently.
- I cleaned your windows with 0 Grade Steel Wool and gave you a new coat of RainX.
- I checked your tires and have since topped you off. Soon, you shall have N2!
- I replaced your shifter, some how your old button was turned around. I'm sorry.
- I detailed the interior and fixed your hanging leather door insert with some adhesive.
- I began detailing your engine and I'm loving getting all the nooks and crannies. <3
- I ordered your new Engine Torque Mount and Lower Cross Brace. So that too.

Your headlights will be refinished soon, and your paint will be waxed. I know you have those little hail dimples, but no one has to know.. I have a friend who is working on them soon for you! ;) The cowl cover that's snapped and filled with holes will need to be replaced too. Also, that crack in the windshield? I am going to get that fixed soon. I love you Focus, and every penny that goes invested into your well being.

Happy Late Valentine Day <3

I'm fairly certain you and your car don't exist due to no pictures. Now how do we get the ghosts out of the interwebs?

That was a rather arousing story.

Sorry all! I am currently busy this weekend with recording my band. I'll take some photos very soon though. I wanted to get a new tripod before doing so.

:)

hehe Just for you. :)

Polished it up a little today since it just rained and got sap on it the other night. Some hail damage and there is a gash in the front bumper I am hoping to replace.

But here it my lovably Blue Focus 06' :D

EDIT: Double posting of photos. See below ^_^

Pics! Enjoy! As I start work on the VF Engineering Rear Engine Mount, and FSWERKS Lower Front Stress Bar I'll be posting pics and maybe doing a cleaner How To as the ones I have seen are kind of jumbled.

Maybe I'll start a blog for them too. When I release the How To I'll see about the site as I have a server to host already.
