Update

Soooo

I have done a couple things with my car as I am waiting for it warm up outside, but I am also going through the preventative measures to make sure nothing is going to fail.
In the last weeks I have done:
Oil Pan replace (other one has a pin hole rust)
Put a bullet antenna on
ORP went on
Oil Change

Things I need to do:
Shifter bushing and Shifter arm (Already bought)
Blinker switch replacement (10mins on 4/6/2017)
Brakes (B priority)
Shocks (B priority)

My next thing is, I have a couple rust spots starting. I got quoted about $400 a panel to have them repainted by a shop. It is the hatch and rockers.
I have a buddy who is certified to do body work and went to school for it, but hasnt done it in years, he said just buy the paint and come over
Or I have people offering to sell me a used hatch for $250 and rockers $300/set
Ideas on that?

Next thing;
tunes
I have Waynes tunes and Focus sport on an xcalbiber 2
Which do I run??? I want to do a Fernando or a Toms tune, but saving up

On the rockers...you can buy on RockAuto...but just be warned you have to cut and weld. To do it right anyway.

Like Jeff mentioned above, need to cut the rocker panel out, grind & mock/fit the need rocker & weld, grind, fill w/ bondo, light skim coat, more sanding,blocking, guild coat, prime, sand & then paint. Really the best way vs using bondo to fill your rot & paint. It'll come back & bubble at you later. Like I mention a while ago, I'd be working on those rocker repairs 1st.

Clean your headlights, and my tail lights(in my opinion) are the best you can get for a focus

Competition Orange is the best lol

I was confused with the rockers, I thought you meant something else, I wasnt paying attention. Question! Could I just sand it, prime, and re paint? Some of the spots are just rock chips and some is rust?

Also, the tail lights, I like mine. I saw mine for the first time in the dark tonight, love them. Will post pics here soon

Update:
Restored my headlights
Buffed, waxed, and did a detailing took a lot of swirls out of the paint.
Did the brakes with EBC green stuff pads
Replaced the shifter arm (I dont know what to call it)

I have a pile of parts waiting to be installed in my room right now:
Double Din Kenwood touch screen
Skar VD-8
180*Tstat
Locking Gas Cap
Rally Armour mudflaps
Brass fitting to go on the tranny so I dont have to hit it into Reverse (Thanks Matt*)
Orange SVT logo floormatts in MINT condition.

I am looking at some stuff with Tax return money trying to figure out though:
Wheels
Coil Overs
67MM throttle body
Cat back to sound well with my ORP
Another Tune to compliment my mods
