Just another introduction thread...

N About 3 weeks ago my Camaro just pissed me off to the point I bought a new car. Went to a few dealerships and fell in love with this one. I walked out at 8k with 48,000 miles. SES, Black leather, SYNC, moon roof, tint, Audiofile, and much other goodies. I really have liked Fords new style and was all about it. I have owned a 2004 F-150, a 2002 F-150, and a 1994 Mustang 5.0. Never had any issues with them. I recently got my father into Fords, himself and his wife drive a 2012 Ford Fusion, and a 2012 Ford Escape. Im going to post pictures of both my Camaro and my Focus.

Camaro is a LT4 5.7 .030 over, 200 Wet shot, Full bolt ons

Focus is all stock with some audio mods. I put in Alpine Type R components in the doors and they are being powered by a Alpine MRP-F300. Got a Kicker CVR 8" in the stock encloser, Poly filled with a MB Quart Formula 400.1 Amp, then two Kicker L7 10's powered by a T.M.A. 1000.1 mono block.

Next mods on the Focus will probably be a double din, a 1" drop all around, 1" wheel spacers all around and just drive her.

Yeah we kinda dug in early with the Focus, popped her Cherry quick. The Camaro is stock all the way down to the FM player as far as audio goes so its nice to have something with good tunes. I haven't been around much audio in a couple years, probably since 09 so there's a lot of new stuff out there.

Wow, I've never been a GM fan but I've been in some fun camaros and trans-ams. That's a big jump to the focus.

Welcome to the forums, lots of great folk here. Do you have any plans for the focus besides audio?

You scored with that blacked-out grill - I like that so much more than the chrome!

Yeah, she runs in the 11's. 325/40/18's Nitto DR555's in the rear .

Well. The audio is now all done (For now) . I will eventually put a double din in. Or atleast mount a screen over on the piece inside that says FOCUS

I want to lower it about an inch. Maybe throw a nice set of wheel spacers on it (maybe with a Lug conversion, and roll on Fusion rims), I may keep the rims that are on there or I REALLY want the stock 17's.

The tails chrome section is blacked out, debadged already, it has 5% Film all the way around, 45% all down the windsheild, double layered 5% at the top of the windsheild. Yellow Fogs and a few little things like a shorty antenna, ect

YES! I love the blacked out grill. I really wish I scored with the 17's too. I am really bummed I don't have them and I can not find them anywhere.

Keep checking the BST area here, after a few deals I missed out on one way or another I found some stock 17's I liked locally through FF.

Sadly I am a little low on money right now, sitting on a ton of Camaro parts, and moving fees have been hell but soon I shall be back in the modding game. I really want a drop first so my eyes will be peeled looking for springs. Should be a few members around me. I do live in Orlando, Florida and I see quite a few. Saw a light blue Coupe with a flaking black grill, on the 17's (stock 17's) that were painted black, then just the face of the rim was PTM to the car, looked amazing.
