And since I will have new secret wheels on Tuesday, Ill show my DD wheels.

Maybe played out on other cars but never been on a focus, and they still arent as bad ass as my new secret wheels

This was a quick test fit to see how they went with the body style... Still 4x108 right now so they are not on the hub properly.

Got my rear brake conversion in. Will need to pick up new pads and rotors, and needs a good cleaning and painting black. But at lease Drums are coming off.

Also once the new rotors come in, I have to then send them out to be filled and redrilled to the new 5 lug pattern.

^^ Better start helpin b*tch

So not much progress because of the xmas slow down, and stupid work.

(Also my camera just happens to be in Justins effin car)

But I did start the rear seat process and I sanded down the floor pan, removing any and all rust.

Primered it with rustolem and Same with a coat of black on top.

So the floor pan is done, now time to start re-wiring and relocating the battery and finishing the rear seats.

Early January I will go on a STAGE 3 spending spree and same with spending $$ with Ksport

^^If anyone wants to post a link to 06-07 ksports (Where to buy) It would be great. Im to lazy to look.


Custom engine cover should be happening next week, then its off to get airbrushed

Pics and more details later I wub you

OK Here are some pictures...

It is slow going or has been, xmas took a lot of money from me.

But now its the new year and back on track!!

With Camber arms on their way and ordering of rotors tomorrow and having them shipped to Dominic for filling and redrilling, two weeks or so and Ill order coilovers

Right now its been sanding and painting getting rid of 3 winters worth of rust (I know only 3 winters but I want no rust)


On to pics

And Before Anyone says it...Yes the tacky blue rubber hoses will be replaced with Black ones. It was from my FF days.



All Resevoirs I cant get looking brand new are being painted black. Same with the TB.



Intake, Battery, battery box, ecu, removed. Only CAI and relocated ECU are going back....






Black REar Seats instead of Tan



Underneith started getting the sanding and painting with rustolem treatment...


More parts cleaned up



I cleaned up and painted all parts of the rear disc conversion, just dont have pics of all parts. But here are the dust sheilds.

Verbal update for right now....


Dropped my faring off at the Airbrush artist house

Got the call that the trunklid is ready, probably not going to have time to pick it up till next week though

Friday the car goes on jackstands and stock brakes and hubs come off.

Also Friday me and my friends are taking the sheet metal we bought and making my custom engine cover.

Then that is off to the airbrush artist

OHHHHHHHHHHH K

So It’s been awhile, sadly not much has happened....

Except for working on the Subi.

But that is about dead, hopefully will last till my recent order of parts come in.

Subi has a blown head gasket, and is limping along. If it makes it till the end of next week I will be very happy.

So in preparation of having to pull the focus out ahead of schedule I have ordered some parts to get it at lease road worthy...

This morning I ordered:

FSWERKS Cold Flo intake
OEM Passenger side Motor Mount
Green Stuff Brake pads
OEM Washer Nosels and Hose (broke on the taking off of the hood)

Rotors should be in from Dom the first part of next week.
I 2-3 day shipped everything else
I will be changing the oil and fluids on Sunday

And the last pieces of the puzzle for early release are finding some 5x100 steelies and tires, and installing my old stock sedan bumper to I don’t eff my coupe one if it decides to snow more.

I will be rocking front seats, no carpet, no rear seats, and floor mats till sometime in late March/Early April where I will install everything else.

I will be stockpiling parts until then.

Bright side is that I will have the Recaros in (drivers side first, passenger needs work)

I get my Recaros tonight when I meet up with Bob.

So that’s my sad update for now, at least I ordered more parts...
