Thanks for the warm welcome. ive actually checked out the interior painting page before. still havent decided whcih color im going to go....black car...everything goes. as far as the engine shit goes...that'll take me a while to understand so im thinking ill do that last. Get the paint and body kit, shit that i knwo how to do already out of the way. I wanted to do lime green for the interior with green neons but unfortunatey i cant find lime green racing seats, or a good shade for the dash for that matter, so now im thinking yellow, tell me what yall think

Welcome and another great site for parts is:

www.steedafocus.com
www.focusperformance.com

Great sites, start with a cool air intake, exhaust, chip.

Chips at www.focussport.com

If u want some cool euro tails, I recommend the TYC at
www.elegantebytyc.com

Another cool sites 4 focus parts is www.jcwhitney.com u can request a free catalog, if u want 2 browse first.
Oh and www.matrixracing.com

Hope this helps, best of luck and don't feel dumb, at least u admit it, some people don't.
I semi know my stuff, just the basics, changing oil, putting on body parts, painting, changing a tire and just the usual. Getting 2 know more, it's fun, u will see.

Yeah, expensive, I am going with the Steeda seats $1,000 to $2,000 and we gotta drive down there 2 install in Florida. But they look good.
Well, the chip is so easy at focussport they have directions, and the cool air intake is easy too.
It sounded like u knew nothing, that's why I said I know the basics, sorry.

one thing to be careful about with racing seats is that they tend to not be comfortable for daily driving. The 300 dollar style one that you have selected have been known to not be as comfortable as the 1000 dollar ones and both not as comfortable as stock. But the yellow will look freak'n nice!

Yeah the Steeda seats are nice, you know that they basically just take your seats out, repad them and then reapholster them with the new material. That is why you have to take your down to their shop or send them your seats... they look amazing when their done....
