2012 Ford Focus Race Red SE Build by PapaAcer

Finally starting my build thread....after having the car for six months, this is how i had purchased it on January 12th, 2013
[IMG] 481371_391743927583307_1070064186_n by papaacer, on Flickr[/IMG]
A month or so after that it needed something, to distinguish it, so out comes the plastidip! Also deleted the lunchbox and put a glasspack instead, It has a very nice deep tone.[IMG] 100_3560_out by papaacer, on Flickr[/IMG] At first it was all just the stripe but blacked out the whole grille area. Here is another shot [IMG] 100_3539_out by papaacer, on Flickr[/IMG] I then purchased a K&N Drop in. And a couple days ago i finally removed that darn snorkel and air dam. Also removed the plastidip and cleaned lil red up and this is what my fofo looks like today [IMG] Lil Red SE by papaacer, on Flickr[/IMG] I have more plans which i will list later as it is super late, but this is my Lil Red Focus build

Nice wheels man, glad to see the hubcaps go lol. I also love that you added a glasspack, but I've only heard them on trucks but I bet the sound is awesome.
