Pretty much a repost...

So after the panels are welded on, I gotta get them rolled to fit at least 9s or 10s with camber. Ill use my 7s and 8s for tucking fun.. Very Happy

Thinking about getting the SC 17x9/10s. Either reverse stagger or reg stagger. Whee'll see.

I have some spension stuff to buy still, but this area is not quite my expertise. Figure I need all the nice parts will adjustable this and that with pillo balls.

I haapen to be one of the few that received DGR suspenson on time and with custom blue parts with white springs. So I'll be riding on that.

So other than that, my car should be here by Saturday or the beginning of next week.

Well guys, the car and rest of my RS parts finally made it to my house Friday with help from mother and my long time friend in Illinois. Eventually the build will be started!

She needs a good cleaning though and a spider search...

Dead battery...good thing I know simple Spanish..lol

Laughing That's just a thought. Though, new top mounts for the spension would be nice.

Everything else is pretty straight forward. Are you doing the quarter panels too, or will I need another shop for that?

So, after looking over that list again, what do you think are some reasonable goals that we should aim to accomplish on the 18th? Should we even attempt to grind down your crash bar, or should we just pull it off?

Josh and I may be able to convince more people to ride over with us after the All Florida G2G on the 17th, so we should have many hands to help destroy your Focus piece by piece. Laughing

I assuming you want to leave the engine stuffs intact until you get the car to Jim's, so maybe we could work on pulling the interior?

There's quite a few things we can do, but only if time persists.

Pulling the interior, including the carpet, except for the driver seat

We can go ahead and pull the rear bumper

We'll mod the front crash bar anyways to save room on the truck. But if Jim doesn't take it for a spin to burn fuel, we could just cut it off.

We could remove the lights too, but need to know if Jim is gonna joy ride it Laughing

Modify existing wiring to use Euro front/rear fog lights, & indicators.

Drill holes for the Viking Wing & rust proof the holes.

Possibly do the battery relocation.

We can't cut it off.

It needs to be cut off by Jim when he is ready to fabricate the parts to bolt the RS one on. And the engine and trans need to be out. When you cut off the crash bar, the frame rails will try to spread open, which could get ugly....especially with the engine in there
