I'm starting a "sort of" build thread for my car. I am not planning on doing anything crazy(for now) but there are a few things that I plan on doing with my car. I hope it's build thread worthy.

Current mods:

LED Tail lights
Yellow fogs
Fog light mod
Blue interior accent lighting
Tints
Kenwood Excelon KDC-X796


Mods I want:
Borla exhaust
CFM 67mm throttle body
MACH HID's
Steeda Short Throw shifter
Euro grill (purchased)
Full LED conversion(about halfway done)
Re-paint the brakes(in the process)
Paint the valve covers(Ford Blue)
Supercharger(not for a while)




The interior lighting

Interior light switch & amp on/off

LED wiring under the console

LED tails (Spyder Auto)

Yellow fogs (Rvinyl overlays)


Calipers



Hope you enjoy!

I absolutely love everything that you have done so far!

[welcome] to FF! [ffrocks]

There are a few things that I would change. Now keep in mind that this is for a clean OEM+ look that I think you need to do. Get rid of those switches, make that OEM again... Paint your stock brakes back to black. That's it, besides getting either Mach HID's or ST170's and lowering a bit more. You got a good car, please don't take it in the wrong direction.

Thanks for the input. When I bought the car about 4 months ago the brakes where already blue. They were pretty faded so I went with Ford Blue.

Don't worry I'm not gonna "rice" it up.

I have the shifter and throttle body, it's a great combo. If you really wanna fly through the gears, a lightweight flywheel is good to have too :) Its a bit spendy though.

Great looking car man!

That entire section of the console is removable on the SVT's and some higher trim models of Foci. The OP should have no problem un-doing that.

The Focus came with way too many different types of consoles, it's ridiculous. Some had a removable piece around the shifter, some armrests, some pen-holders, some aux ports, some extra pockets, etc.

mine has the shifter surround and pen holder. lol. plus an extra little pocket between the cupholders.
Haven't seen that one. I have seen them separate ie: console with only pen holder, & console with only little worthless pocket

Clear on a black car!?!?!?

More like smoked or tinted on this car.
I thought about clear but I think they would have to be smoked to work well. Black and clear is to much contrast. For now the amber will stay till I get the Machs.

I like my switches but I would be interested in what you are talking about. Post a pic!

Nice clean looking SVT. I really like the LED tails and license plate lights. Remember to save a bit for normal maintenance items such as leaky thermostat housing, timing belt and associated pulleys etc, and water pump replacement.

Working on painting the calipers. The passenger side is done. It's a little brighter than I wanted but it looks good just the same.
