So I haven't posted here for awhile. I have done a lot of stuff to the focus in the last month or so, and I thought it would be a good idea to put up a thread showing what it looked like when I bought it and what it looks like now. I'll try not to post EVERY picture I have. [dunno]

When I bought it, it was a mess. But I got a great deal on it. I don't have any pics of when I picked it up, but it had pretty bad hail damage. The windshield was busted up pretty bad, dent in the hood where previous owner shut it on the prop, and the Saleen wing was completely destroyed. It also had ugly yellow stuff all over it. Calipers, underhood wiring, strut tower brace. [thumbd][thumbd][thumbd] I did all the major maintenance, plugs, brakes, and complete mechanical inspection. Engine had 2 burned valves, so minor engine rebuild was done. All new valves and lifters. Had hail dents removed / repaired.






It's been a long road to where it is now, but it's almost where I want it.

A list of everything I've added since then, and pics.

Black corner markers




Sirius satellite install, replaced antenna with sirius antenna from late model mustang





Steeda RAI




Repaint yellow calipers red




The rest has been done just within the last 3 or 4 weeks.

Remove side moldings



Added decals [race][race][race]



Replaced all silver interior pieces with black




Black housing headlights



Shift knob



Painted strut tower brace black and replaced yellow wiring with new fuel harness



And finally, replaced hood - no scoop, replaced grill, added painted door handles and SVT folding / heated mirrors, and added new Motegi MR121 wheels - 17 x 7

This is how it sits as of today. Enjoy! [wave]

As gaudy as I think the Saleens are, the hood scoop/wing delete, and the wheels really make yours look slick.

Great job Victor.

Glad to see those parts go to good use on a local members car.

Keep up the good work.

Definitely! Chad saved me a lot of time and effort with his parts. Sorry you were busy again today. I didn't really have time to stick around though.

MUCH BETTER! I really like it!

I'd repaint the drums black. Not something you want to show off.
I'd also remove the decals on the windows. Even though you are repping HN,
that decal messes with the lines of the car too much. Just my opinion.

I'm just thinking right now that an Svt wing on the back might add a little meat to the rear end, but you already know I love your car. Awesome job. [thumb]
