Well it's that time again to get the list populated on what i want done before carlisle... so here is the list, some may get completed some may not...

I'm doing my best to get the money before may to get it all completed... working 3 jobs and a full time college student doing about 30hrs a week for work, and that might even go up more next month with me getting my job transferred...

I'm gonna try my best to do as much as i can while in college. i love cars, trucks and i might be getting my 79 f150 there if i can get it running.... :(

Anyways! on with the list:

For eye candy:


ST170 headlights (black housing) (Bought and being shipped noww!!! 3/6/11)


SVT 6 spoke powder coated rims.. look like this, except with silver instead of blue


Front Bumper [undecided on still but its a MUST for this carlisle.. the stock one wont cut it with a turbo :) ]

Side skirts ( svt, or roush)


For performance:

Turbo kit (bought, and ready to install just not $$ for the tune) (build is located HERE )

new probe lightweight pistons
new eagle forge rods



ICE:

replacing tacky blue painted trim with car matched silver paint

replacing gauge overlay in dashboard with built in lighting.



anyway on with the pics from carlisle this past year and cheers to a new start this year!! [cheers]

Thanks man! well i decided to stick with it cause I actually have ALL the parts to install, I just need a tune for it. I need 550$ and i can install the turbo kit. No point in trying to sell it when i just need 550$ to finish it lol. Hopefully everything goes smooth!

can't wait to see the new wheels on it.
I know me too! I can't stand the chrome rims anymore, I can actually tell a weight diff in the rims between those and my stock rims when I am driving. I want a more (low down, less flashy look) anyway lol

well If you guys know what all I went through to get this wing, dropped it had to get the cracks fixed and repainted I have about 700$ tied up in that spoiler alone, and the brackets had to be home made cause saleen no longer carries the brackets and you can't find instructions out there on how to do it. I gotta keep it, once I get the whole car put together I am sure you will think it fits in nicely lol

and for the euro part, I am thinking about ditching the plate for the new bumper until i get the $$ for the ST170 headlights then i'll add it back on lol

Man... those 6 spokes with the blue are sweet. Go blue. Forget the silver. BLUE!!!!!
I know I debated, but the blue doesn't match anything on my car since I got rid of my stripes and the interior is being painted body color (silver)

Which headlights are those? That's the best set of black housing headlights on a silver Focus that I've seen without looking like 2 huge out of place eyeballs. The eyelids also help.

Share with me your secret!
