Rockauto? I came across that name a few times but never really heard any reviews on it. if I can get new rotors for super cheap then I'll from there lol.

This came up kinda randomly, but I feel like flocking the dashboard. Flocking is that fuzzy black stuff they put on rally cars to reduce the glare.

I love flocked dashes, do it. I can just see my kid spilling a coke on it or something.

Is that a PITA taking that dash apart? Or the correct question, will it be a PITA to put back together?

Actually, no. This is the 3rd time I've taken the dash off, hardest part is removing the airbag. I always eff up the airbag cover trying to remove it lol.

I think what I'm gonna do is remove the entire core support from the SVT and transfer that over to the silver one, along with the darker dash.

What sucks about the flocking is that the adhesive needed can only be shipped ground. I'll try emailing the folks that sell the stuff and see what they can do.

Also, am I a ricer for wanting the SVT HKS Hi-Power exhaust? I think the fart can looks pretty good, plus it's got the one of the higher power gains and one of the quietest according to that FJ shoot-out. Or eff it and just go 2.5 magnaflow w/out res?

I think you should get the magnaflow...overall I think it matches the car better. Fart cans don't look good on the Focus imho.

You got a point there. What would probably bother me more is interior resonance more than how the fart can looks, which is why I even considered getting the HKS. You can't deny that the HKS is the best sounding can style muffler. But, it's expensive though. For that price I could get the Trubendz in full stainless, plus a mandrel flexpipe.

The magnaflow sounds badass on SVT's though, so I'll probably get it eventually. And I don't intend getting a high-flow cat since those make the car uber loud and raspy.

My car is gonna look like for a while too lol. Being all red and silver. Hopefully one of the body shops I know can hook me up.

My magnaflow sounds like that when I'm at a standstill too. It burbles when the revs start settling down. While accelerating though my exhaust sounds like my next door neighbor's Honda Fit w/ the fart can, but not as loud haha

Magnaflow it is then. Eventually lol. And I actually won a shift knob off ebay.co.uk last night, won the bid at .99GBP. But of course shipping was like 10GBP. But paying $17USD shipped for this shift knob here is worth it!

Can't beat .99 gbp haha. Are you still gonna pursue doing Euro mods to the hatch? You mentioned taking it to a paint shop...might as well get new Euro bumpers for it too if you're gonna get a paint job

In due time I'll get the euro bumpers. I should probably paint everything one time though so they match
