ok so.

my interior is trashed.
we have had my focus since 2001
i have had it for two years.
like an idiot, i have smashed vents,[gunfire] broken mouting tabs, [boxface] scraped, [poke] spray-painted, [chair] bent, and otherwise ruined most/all interior parts.[slap]

I WANTS NEW.

so,
i ask your opinions.
NO MATTER WHAT, i am going to wrap all new panels, pillars, dash, etc. in fabric. it will look fine. i have matured beyond the point of relying on meaningless destruction to survive.

but

i need to know if i should get the 00-04 interior, or the 05-07.

i like my 01, it's excitingly curvy.
but the 05-up would be easier to wrap and make to look classy.

so help.

i like the shape of it... it flows more with the focus bodylines... the 05-07 focus was really raped for its front end and inside... ford really farted all over the plans for it...

i would love an earlier dash and door panels... esp if my door panels were all black... i think the plastic on my microsoft key board looks pricier than the grey plastic on my door panels.

The 00-04 interior is european, whereas the 05-07 is.......well....not.

The 00-04 looks MUCH better IMO. Its quite unique and not boring and square.

okay. i guess it's decided.

and of course it will be custom. i'm shaving the two center vents, the stupid corner vents, the big dumb line across the middle of the dash, the radio bezel will be molded in(maybe), molding in the stupid ugly speaker grills and wrapping everything (door panels, int. 1/4 panels, pillars, dash, and the seats at some point) in brown suede and leather. then i will put real speaker grills over the nice smooth leather and yay.

:D what do you guys think.
is that dumb?
