so my good buddy Klodkrawler used to call my car the Rice rocket.
Today we started to fix that. When i was 17 i just did whatever icould, big bodykits, painting without sanding all that stuff.
this is september when i FIRST started correting all the ricyness. It was clean but i still had the gawdy body kit.


ive been working onthings for a few months now.
Lots of engine goodies, and i started repaint, got rid of the crappy tinted headlights got a sweet valve cover...among alot of other things.
So how it stands RIGHT NOW









havent got new fogs yet. Im making the fogs hollow and monting different ones behind the grill. Stay tuned for updates.

I think you need some gas[rolleyes]
and after that you should paint your windshield wiper arms back to black.

Get yourself some of this and put a bead of it down in the crack where the lense meets the housing on those headlights. I have the same ones, and once I sealed them up better I haven't had condensation in mine since.
Here's what you need:



Car is looking better man. Keep up the good work.

i jsut bought all this
for 250 dollars. (minus baseball gloves...althought that would have made it an even sweeter deal .lol)
as most of you no ive been saving for my KYB agx suspension for awihle now and i finally purchased tonight.



kid said they were on for less than 1k on another focus. Then he traed a bunch of parts with this guy and the guy traded him this suspension. He didnt have a focus so it didnt work on his car. TADA 250$.
Red KYB agx, with purple Intrax 2 inch drop springs...not sure bout the purple lol

ill be dropping it in at the begining of spring.
