You should ask Nick if you could borrow a set of his OZ RS's for the show.

Thought about it, even talked to Nick about changing a few things for the show. But I decided no fucks will be given, I'm proud of my build and will rock it as I built it.

Let me ask a few questions Chris, cause I really like the battery idea.

1. How will you jump the car, if needed?

2. and did you have to lengthen the existing battery wire's?

3. any un-seen problems?

If I need to jump the car I'll take the head light out. Very simple.

I didn't have to extend the factory wires, I ran them to the relay I installed then used another positive cable from another Focus to run to the battery. The grounds I completely re did.

Not yet.

This thread still needs a new title. Troll Face


Anywho...

Longer studs have been put into the drums for 5mm spacers. I'm waiting to barrow a roller so I can install the spacers. Going to take the rear just a tad wider. Picked up a new set of euro fender lights. Got the cheaper ebay style ones, that only require drilling a hole in the fender to install them. Those will be going on this weekend.

I also bought a RS knob so I could get more scene points. I messed up the threading on the shift lever so I will be redoing another one. I'll get installed pics later.

As you can see its not bad, just used.

Here's a couple of pics of the new RS knob installed. I also put in a new longer shift lever. The one I had was cut way to short. The throw feels so much better now.

Also got my fender markers installed. I've always wanted a set and with shaving the side markers out of the bumper I really needed them to be legal. I had a set of Euro lenses and all the stuff to make them work, but never brought myself to cut the triangle hole in my fender. ZX360 had posted a set of knock offs he was selling and I jumped on them. These only require a 3/4" hole drilled in the fender so install was super easy.

To get the location just right I made this template. Cut the hole with the hole saw, then traced the lens and cut it out.

Mocked up...


100_2127 by norcalfocus@rocketmail.com, on Flickr

Marked it and measured so I could get it the same on the other side.


100_2126 by norcalfocus@rocketmail.com, on Flickr

New speed hole cut...


100_2128 by norcalfocus@rocketmail.com, on Flickr

and lens installed!


100_2129 by norcalfocus@rocketmail.com, on Flickr

Wired it up using wire and loom from all the old harnesses I have laying around...


100_2130 by norcalfocus@rocketmail.com, on Flickr

all done!

Nice work, everything looks good. Thumb Up

Cutting a hole in your car is scary lol. Took me months to finally do mine.
