SVT focus conversion to Honda VTAK! progress pics inside

Yeah, i decided it was time to do it, im converting my SVT focus to a vtec honda, it will have a 1.6L engine ( gas prices suck)




So wanna finish something like this but with the focus parts and sonic blue, svt logos, svt recaros, and i was seriously thinking of adapting the mach hids





i have the focus rollin on the spares here is when i first started





so what do you think?







SVTec!













































































































Yeah, im just kidding... im sleepy but damn...

People how often do you do alignment?, i forgot mine and those are the cons, im sad because the car somehow looks like a Civic lol






Since i drive freeways all the time its really dangerous, so i better keep a 50 mph speed lol, the good thing is that i have a set of 17" rota attacks ( steel gray with polished lip ) waiting to be picked up, ill have them later, and will post pictures



PD Dont forget to do your alignment!

Here some cool pictures i found in photobucket haha

wheel alignment like once a year, and rotation and inspection like every 5 weeks.

its all about miles not weeks.

it could be a bad alignment or maybe wheels needed to be rotated and balanced???

i get my alignment done probally every 10k (thanks firestone for the lifetime deal) and I rotate/balance the tires when I notice the fronts have a bit more wear than the rears.
