Steamboat and HoopD @ Carlisle P&S '13 w/ Foci Friends

Sorry for not posting a build thread for the boat, she's been in winter storage, I've been working two jobs, tinkering on the beater, and world traveling. I haven't had much time lately!

I decided that Carlisle Performance and Style would be a great time to bring er out!

I've done a few minor changes for 2013!
  • Keskin's Powdercoated White, Polished Lip, and Black Rivets
  • Satin Black Painted Reiger Vents, Cowl Vent/Cover,Wiper Arms, and Front Euro Grille
  • Installed New Mach Lenses
  • "SVT" and "602" build number painted inside Machs
  • Installed Czech Euro Plate Frame I was gifted while in the Czech Republic in February.
  • Painted Rotors/Calipers Gloss Black
  • Removed old exhaust tip and welded in a 3.5" "Corvette" Style tip
  • Installed Euro Taillights
  • Installed Metal SVT Rear Plate Frame w/ LED bulbs
  • Installed a MSD Coilpack and Massive Wires
  • Installed a BOSCH Premium Battery w/ Gold Clamps
  • Installed White Shift Knob w/ Red Gear Pattern
  • Full Cut/Buff of Exterior and Dressed Interior Leather

I'm really happy with the new changes and I hope you will be too!

As for show preps for the HoopD, I washed the wheels and clamped on a new exhaust tip....

I met a lot of great people and their cars! I want to thank everyone for their help! I also want to credit all the photographers who snapped pics, since I forgot my camera! Enjoy!




Me, Ken, and Wobb soaking up the beautiful Carlisle Sun...

Josh, it was nice meeting you. I love the ratted Focus, but your blue car just raises the bar. The attention to detail is outstanding.

Thank you Tom! It was really nice meeting you two! I will always have a sweet spot for black foci! Your car was clean and had the performance to bak it up!
