I'm thinking about doing something like this for the flares. then either make them in fiberglass or CF. maybe even rubber

i plan on it. like any shade tree mechanic, i saw it online and the guy made it look easy Laughing

but i figure if i screw up, i can just paint over it and start again. i just have to figure out a plan that works with the Focus body lines

I've done rust and patina paints before. I've sold them for years as well. Never thought of using on a car but I like it. If you got any questions on how to do it, what products to use etc, drop me a message.

i did some messing around with the car the other day and found the problem with the motor. a broken DSI lever. as far as i can tell, that is the entire reason this thing was parted out. im kinda glad i saved this one from getting scrapped for no good reason

i also found a CGI block local to me for a steal, ill be trying to get it this weekend

It sounds like you need a new IMRC Box. It's $187 plus shipping from Steve.

I am intermittently having the same problem because my controller box is going out. I've limped it along for a while now.

its the DSI lever as far as i can tell, the cable that usually pops off is missing entirely. Kev(aka SaucyMuffin) offered me a whole intake mani for $50, so Ill pick it up and give it a shot

and about the CGI block, the guy listed it wrong. its just a stock block with an extra built motor to go with it. only problem is, the built motor threw a rod though the block Thumbs Down

so I decided that the best way to get this car together was to buy a parts car. while on the hunt for an SVT, I stumbled on this



paid the registration fees and went out to bid on it yesterday, won it for a ridiculously cheap price, and am going to pick it up later today





best part is this.....

Okay I would love to know if you'd like to sell or trade five spokes for those EAP wheels. Not to mention the interior of the car. I've got a 02' with Red. It'll look great with your bumpers. Very Happy

No but seriously.. EAPs.. I'm interested. PM me.

my brother and I hauled the car home today, it fired right up with a jump with NO check engine lights. this thing is better than i had hoped to find. the front bumper may be fixable, just about everything else SVTwise is still mint or close enough for me
