"Project Hoop-D"

Post by sixshooter on 2012-10-11, 1:28 am

What is Project Hoop-D?: Well I just arrived home today with my 3rd Focus, 6th Ford Product, and 9th Vehicle I've owned. Dubbed "Project Hoop-D" I plan on doing all my "dirty" work and winter driving with this car. Don't worry, Steamboat is just hibernating for the winter!

History: I purchased from original owner w/ 186,500 miles. All maintenance was completed (Timing belt, water pump, thermostat, alternator, belts, hoses, plugs/wires, brakes, bearings, transmission fluid, coolant, radio, and shift solenoids replaced).

Specs: 2002 Ford Focus ZX3. Zetec w/ Auto. Power Everything. Factory Fogs. Moonroof. Spoiler. 16" Alloys. 6-Disc CD

Story Time: OG Owner's neighbor backed into passenger door, smashing glass and destroying door. Owner collected insurance. Abandoned vehicle. Sat for a year and half w/ no window. Cats and Mother Nature moved in. The interior is NASTY! Needless to say I paid a whopping $600. Unbelievable

What Needs Replaced?:
Windshield
Door/Glass
Fuel Door
Rear Bumper
Tires
Interior

What do I have planned?
Gut Interior
Change Oil
Replace Parts Needed

What have I completed?:
Walmart Tint and Sticker Removed
New Tires

I do have minor mods planned but I will keep them a secret so you guys have a reason to check back! Fap

Onto the Pictures!:

I would have removed the carpet before the tint and stickers! Shocked I would also be scared to breathe in there for extended periods of time. Great buy for $600 though, lol.

Sweet project, at least focus have a cover under the carpet that might have saved the floor boards. Can't wait to see some more updates!
