Haha I would do $650 for the pair plus shipping or you could take a road trip[headbang]

They do not make one for the rear, i will be making one this winter though for my sedan.

The front grille is custom made, euro grille with the insert cut out and a lower grille cut to fit so it matches the honeycomb in the SVT bumper. Plus no badge=clean.
Wow, the car is beautiful... love the paint!

grab a scrap yard one and debadge it then paint it use a dremil to cut the bulk out then hand sand to smooth and finishing putty with plastic prep then a final sand then paint.. this is how i fill in and remove things from plastics and computer cases ive been using that method for years making custom computer cases and blackboxs for under car seats for micro PC's and full auto cam controlboxes

im going to have to pass for the time being other things on the SAP needs to be delt with before it turns into a SAPcicle and freezes over

Might not park like one, but you'd have to drive diagonally across drives & such. Or you'll be scraping the lower edges of that front sap cover. Not so much it sits low. How far the lower edge comes out from rear to the front in a straight line vs curving up as the standard cover & being longer vs the svt cover.

cars not lowered its at stock height actually the car is raised 1/2 inch as the car is supposed to be on 60's and the tires are 65's

its more of the look under the front end of a standard early 2000's focus if the cowling between the bumper and rad cradle is still there that bumper has never been curbed but thats very few most of the cars i've owned and worked on that cowling is usually exploded into pieces or just flat out missing [cheers]

must say that looks CLEAN.. and nice stance is nice.. for me the camber of the rears would drive me absolutely batty..

=/ to many cars seen with slightly more that just eat the crap out of the tires and the kids end up upside down in the ditch.. my jag at the time was my sisters it was totally stock but when i drove up i walked up to my sister and asked her when she lowered it.. the said huh it wasn't lowered i looked the rear forward lower control arm. the bushings were shot causing the rear to squat with camber and absolutely DESTROYED a pair 6 and a half week old continental extreme contact sport tires.. $320 each tire >.< i disabled her car and told her she cant drive it as it wore the insides about a 1/4 inch deeper then the steel belts... id rather have a family fight and argument then risk my sister from having a blowout and possibly killing herself.. ever since that day when i see rear camber i have flashbacks..

2 days & $1490 later her car was safe to drive again.. pair of new forward control arms, 4 new bolts, 2 new tires and a pair of rear end links and rear end alignment.

The camber -- it burns!! lol. Keep an eye on the wear on those tires. It's amazing how quick it will show. :p

Also -- trying to read back, but failing, what is she running tune wise? Hit the dyno yet?
