Smile The many faces of my ride part 1

Wanted to post pics of the various stages of my ride. This is part 1.
Enjoy,.... or dont.. Dan


One of the 1st looks of the foci back in 2003ish


Diff view (2003)

Diff view (Still waiting)


Evo front


Loved my evo kit (fiberglass sucks, went through 9 fronts)


Diff view (fiberglass sucks, be warned ha ha)


Side of the evo kit

Hope you enjoyed. Also wanted to say waz up to all foci enthusiasts out there. I really enjoy the hell out of this site. The good and the bad.
Part 2 will be the death of fiberglass and the birth of polyurethane (yahoo).

Thanks. No, its not that I couldnt make up my mind about the fronts, its that the front seem to be made from magnets molded into the fiberglass which would seem to attract all forms of crap in the road (usually at high speeds). The fiberglass which is rated at collision fator of 0, didnt handle the debris as well as I thought it should. In other words, I kept hitting stuff in the road and broke my front... Ahhhhh the memories. Thats why I switched to polyU. That and my insurance company at the time would not let me renew with them... Haha. Be wary of fiberglass... :)

Thanks for the engine bay comment. I would like to upgrade my header to a JBA one day, mabey when I get back from Korea..

There's a guy that works at the same place as I do with a grille just like that. Doesn't look too bad.
Can't wait to see part 2!

Looks good . I also like the grill. Sucks about the bumpers. I guess we live and learn
