So my car was starting to look just plain ugly. I had a bunch of different ideas and they were all going in different directions, and the end result was a bit of an eyesore IMO.

Bronze wheels, tinted stock grille, yellow fogs, yellow calipers, oldass rotors [thumbd]







I needed to change gears (no pun intended) and get her look back on track. But I had VERY little cash to spend on it. So I worked my ass off to find some good deals and little touches that would make me happy again, and I have to say I'm pleased with the result.

* Hella Dual Projectors: $60
* BNIB Centric vented rotors: $60
* Tinted SVT Grille: $35
* Tinted Stock Tails: $20
* "Fast" Ford SPAM emblems: $20
* Chrome-painted Calipers: Free
* New FR Triple Gauge Pod: $50
* AFR, Oil, and Voltmeter Gauges: $20

GRAND TOTAL = $265.oo

And the result:

Ta-daa!

I'm much happier now.

Why in the world do you need so much ketchup in a car lol? At least thats what it looks like you have stuffed in the drivers door.

LOL, I know, I'm so ashamed, hehe. It's mostly random receipts that I've been stuffing down there and (lazy me) didn't empty the thing before I snapped a pic :p

And yes, it could really use a drop, but it's not going to happen until the spring -- I've got a Maine winter coming up pretty soon and the last thing I need is a 4-banger snowplow.

Looks much better man. I love the hellas in gloss black on a black focus.
I've driven in 2 winters with my 1.8" drop in 6+" of snow, and never had a single issue.
As long as you've got a good set of snow tires, the focus does awsome in the snow, even lowered.
If anything, it does better once its lowered, unless you come up on a foot or more of snow,
but you'd be screwed either way in that case.

Agreed on the Hella's. I thought about getting a set and painting them my body color before I got the ones I have now.
