A while back I was considering a mod idea to add similar vents by taking the cowl vent from under the windshield of another vehicle (similar to what's on a 1990's Chevy pickup or early 90's blazer) and using that to modify a focus hood.
I may still attempt it with a donor hood if I get that far on the car.

Didn't they invent machines that do trivia a while back?
How does hanging around a small mob of drunk people keep you safe? lol

Congrats on the extra job and monies though, for sure! I work a few hours at a video store on Sundays for a few extra bucks, not to mention free rentals. =D

Probably the only thing you might be interested in is the euro grill. Those things are damn expensive. Got a nice one with a detachable surround.

Rest of my stuff is mostly from SVT's ;)

It may be from one of their cup kits then... if you bought used it may just be the springs from the kit.

H&R race go 2" drop but they are red.

There's a "touring" and "sport" h&r cup kit. The touring is a 1.4" drop and the sport is over 2 inches.

Ok thanks, I still gotta put my bump stops in and install my adjustable camber and tow arms. If it still annoys me il just buy new set of eibach springs, unless I get low mileage ones for about $100. They r like $150 new
