Hello my fellow focusfanatics! I have never done a showroom thread before, thought I would contribute. Here is my Stewie (think family guy, inocent on the outside, pure evil inside) after just getting washed.
Only exterior mods are:
20% tint all around (4% rear hatch window)
svt complete suspension swap
self made shorty antenna

And thats it for the show on the outside. I would have more pics because I LOVE this little car, but the only camera is my phone (phone pics FTL) and the temperature outside is approximatly frigid.
Anyways, just thought I would share.




I have to show my first car: 2001 Escort SE with the spi and automatic.



Also, does anyone know what color code my Stewie is? I would like to paint my mirror caps in a few weeks, and if it goes well then I will think about doing the rest of the black plastic trim.

Thanks for checking in!

Looks good reminds my of my first focus. It was basically that same color. And just remember. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Paint code should be on the inside door drivers side. Might be toredo red or something like that. Pretty sweet headlights. What kind are they?

I have a friend who had a 98 escort and that little car was pretty quick for an auto. Ford four cylinders represent!

The headlights are cheap ebay projectors lol. I am very pleased with them, especially cinsidering the price.

The escort is pretty quick. Also the most durable little car in the universe. It was my first car, and being a first car for a new driver, it went through a lot. Lets face it, everyone drives like an ass when they first start driving, and that little escort took it all in stride.

rally brakes were right around $800 from mike at hilbish [pray]
they took roughly 12 hours to install all 4 corners with 2 people working on it
however with a buddy or 2 and some patience they are VERY VERY VERY worth it
definitely my favorite mod yet...(and i've had a few [angel] )
