Washed my focus and removed some small scratches today. Took it out around town and got some cool pics.

To do this summer...
-sylvania silverstar zxe bulbs for my headlights
-fix my fog light that's acting up
-replace non matching wheel nuts

Maybe...
-ez lip front spoiler
-some sort of aftermarket suspension kit, maybe svt
-strut tower brace
-aftermarket exhaust system

Happy almost Summer.

The biggest plans I have this summer is to get all the parts bought and ready for an RS conversion next winter.

yusssss summer.

Hoping to sell my winter beater Neon to simplify the driveway. Really nice car and all- reminds me of my old zetec ZX3 but I dont need another project and I cant stop spending money on the damn thing. Turning into a perfectionists "if you give a mouse a cookie" nightmare lol. (Bought a 5 lug swap and rear discs. need to refurb it all before going in > well I might as well redo the brake hardlines while Im under there> wellll If it has to get an alignment anyway I might as well do springs and shocks> etc)

Mustang is getting Koni yellows, H&R Race springs, Maximum Motorsports CC Plates and a Massive PHB. Been slacking way too much on this install. Hoping to do either tune or exhaust this summer as well.

Plans are big for this summer.

Doing a complete suspension overhaul to prepare the car for autocross events. Planing on:

-Coilovers
-New wheels/tires
-Eibach anti roll bars
-SPC Camber kit front/rear
-Brembo drilled rotors
-Goodridge Stainless steel brake lines
-Hawk brake pads
-SVT rear brake conversion (hopefully)

I also plan to complete my SVT header and exhaust set up, clean up the body, get a new intake, and a tune.

Big list but I think I can do it.
