My '07's Carlisle Prep Thread but not FR11 (SAY WHUT?)

Post by Kenzx3 on 2011-02-27, 12:25 am

A Carlisle Prep Thread not for FR11, say what? Say it ain't so? Of course not LOL! Now your asking yourself how can one of the organizers not be going to FR11? First off OF COURSE I'm going to FR11 but many of you may not realize Carlisle Events holds a Tuner Only Show called "Performance and Style" 4 Weeks ahead of Ford Nationals where FR11 takes place. See here for more info: [URL="http://www.carsatcarlisle.com/ce/events/performance-style/"]LINK[/URL]. My '07 has been invited to show indoors in one of their Invitational Displays for the Event which is a huge honor. So now that means my FR11 Prep has been pushed forward 4 weeks now for the '07 LOL! Mind you I also have 2 other Ford Foci I need to get ready for FR11 as well, yikes!

What are the Plans? Here's the laundry list:
- Get the AutoPower Rollbar I just recently bought Chromed or Full Polish Powdercoat (Yes Why Not LOL! Laughing)
- Put in my AutoPower RollBar Put in (oh noes I need to drill the floor! Very Happy)
- Replace the B-Pillar Trim from where my COSDEVSVT bar was
- Get the Super Secret Wheels and Tires put on (Super Secret Wink)
- Spin the Coils another round or two down
- Cosworth Intake Manifold (No eBay Knock-off Crap here Rolling Eyes)
- 2.3 Head put on by McNews Automotive
- Power Steering Pump Conversion / Relocation
- Retuned by Ray at McNews Automotive
- Possibly Redo-ing my Audio Setup for a new idea I had (I know AGAIN)
- Seating Conversion to Full Recaro Evo Seating in the Front and EAP Recaro Rear Bench (No MOAR Roush Sad)
- Focus RS Center Console Conversion (DONE)
- Focus RS e-Brake Mechanism (DONE)
- Focus RS Sparco e-Brake Handle (DONE)
- Redo the Tint all around
- Wiretuck the bay a little bit (Shaving the Bay next winter)
- Convert Coolant Reservoir to 00-04 Reservoir (DONE)
- CFM Carbon Fiber Degas Cover (DONE)
- Full Wax and Polishing of the '07 (Of Course)
- Repaint the Brake Calipers GOLD (WHERE DA GOLD AT?!?!?)
- Repaint the Hood (Rock Chips FTL!)

Pics of the '07 as of last weekend at the Motorama / TunerWars Show in Harrisburg, PA:

Not decided, may be changing the RS Convert to the '03 and doing a Roush Conversion on the '00 as it's gonna need a repaint anyway here soonish (next winter after the '07's bay is shaved)

And the super ghey secret wheels are gonna look ballin'! PB&J

I want to have it fully done, completely. RMiller AutoBody right up in Hershey, PA (30 mins from Carlisle) is going to do the work, I was inspired by their work I saw at H2Oi and Motorama this year, gonna contact them after H2Oi this year and get it up there.

Yeah only thing that could screw me is I applied for a job in our Corporate Offices in Minnesota so getting that done and moving could be a big deal if I were to get said job.

But then I could join mnfocus and really get some hate from a few certain people on that somewhere you know about but I won't say the name LOL!

Wink But he really looks up to you Ken.



I can't wait to see them. No stretch is a good way to go for your car Ken. The SAP just doesn't lean itself to S&P the same way a 00-04 does.
