So I'm finally getting around to posting pics of my Focus, It's a work in progress, unfortunately it hasn't progressed very far, lemme know what you think.

I just recently installed the clear corners, I just neet to get a grille with clear turns, and find some amber bulbs that have the chrome coating so they don't show through the clear corners, I don't know if you can see it. I remember seeing a site on here that had that sort of thing, but it's long gone. Anybody know where I may be able to find some?


This would be her backside, I'm not sure what brand the muffler is, but it was there when I bought the car, a different view is next.


I didn't realise my feet were in view when I took this but oh well. The muffler closer, carbon fiber wrapped, with a surprisingly low tone, I had a neighbor ask what I had under the hood, cause he thought I had a V8 crammed in there (I wish).


The mass of fiberglass on the dash is going to be the resting spot for my radar detector hardwired into the fusepanel, I just havent had time to finish it lately, and I painted the A/C bezels just to see how it turned out, and I know the green doesn't exactly go right now, but it eventually will.


Here's the hatch with my custom box, again not finished, still needs much sanding, and paint, but I got impatient not having any beats.


Lastly the mostly stock engine bay with the K&N SRI.


As you can see, she's mostly stock, but I love her just the same, lemme know what you think.

I wasn't too sure about it before I bought it, but it was a hell of deal on ebay, so I jumped on it, but when I first started it up, the sound gave me a sigh of relief and a huge smile. Although I do tend to think it's rather loud from time to time, but once I will eventually get the Powerworks and a full SVT 2.5 exhaust when funds allow, it will look much better.

Definitely getting the grille with clear turns, and finishing the dash, after that, I'm not sure, possibly the SVT suspension and brakes, and my trans is trash, so I want to get a new one with lightweight flywheel, stage 2 or 3 clutch and LSD. But I have to get a job before anything can move forward.

Looks pretty clean, definately want to see how the radar detector turns out.

BTW, your neighborhood looks like every single suburb in the Houston area.

Yeah, it sucks there's no such thing as a back yard around here.

I'm not a huge fan of the RS wing, but other things have grown on me.

Someone been stealing road signs. LMAO!
One it's not stealing until you get caught [;)], second, I got arrested a couple weeks ago, and the cop went through my whole car, and didn't seem to think twice when he saw the sign.

You really should mount your detector as high as you can, the hood can interfere with it. That is what it says in the manual to the V1.
