Well to update the last post the springs actually didnt fit

But now I'm looking into ordering a set of custom spring rate BC Racing coilovers instead The BC's are the only coilovers available with camber plate top mounts still available for the mk1 Focus. (current thinking for spring rates is 525F 575R)

Just placed my order for custom rate BC Racing Coilovers ended up going with 9k front 10k rear... Or 504#F 560#R depending which way you're used to seeing spring rates :lol:

Can't wait to get them on the car and dialed in. Might yet order camber arms for the rear.
Already waiting on solid shifter bushings to ship as well! Car is getting treated royally this year.

Well its now only 6 weeks until my first show of the year (Offset Kings @ Sonoma Raceway) so I really have to shift things into gear and get started on all the little niggly things I gotta get finished before the show season starts.

Already contacting uhpolstry shops to get quotes for interior work, and gotta put some elbow grease into cleaning up the engine bay.

Still waiting on new coilovers coming as well as solid shifter bushes and a Ford Edge rear wiper.

So expect a bunch of updates over the next few weeks/months!

Still waiting on my new Coilovers getting here so I can get a little lower and add a touch of camber front and back.

Sadly I'm in the only state where I can't own a gun until I'm a citizen (I can start the application process next August for that)

Alright so I had Taylor Kas pick and send me a set of mk2 OEM black sunvisors ($25 all in, thanks again Taylor!)




First part of the conversion to a black headliner and pillars, got painted handles already. Gonna get headliner and pillars done once I sell the Coilovers that are currently on the car.

I am looking into getting a set of lightweight wheels in 17/18x8 but have yet to decide on a wheel (very picky). I love the look of the TurboMacs but I fear they are gonna be too heavy for what I want... The search continues!

Coilovers went on over the weekend. Reads didn't go anywhere near as low as I had hoped so....

I went to Nicks and test fit 18x8 et35 Team Dynamics PR1.2 with 215/40 on them. They fit great so I went ahead and ordered a set myself from Chalon!

High power silver. For tyres I went with hankook Ventus v12 evo2 in 215/40.

I do still need to fit the camber arms and get an alignment but I wanna wait for the 18s so I can set the height before taking the car in for an alignment.

Now this is with 0 camber on the front as I have not had the car aligned yet

Wheels are on and a nice alignment later the car is a new beast. I do however need to switch back to the SVG rear sway bar from the 28.6mm Steeda on. First corner I really pushed the car on she kicked the ass out so hard it was like RWD :lol: fun but scary lol.

I got some DSLR shots but haven't edited them yet so here's a few potato pictures for now. Offset Kings is this Saturday so car goes in for a full detail Friday, can't wait to have nice corrected paint again!





As you can see the SVT brakes even look small now.... Makes me wanna get a BBK

Just bought a F2 RS Style spoiler, its even black already, needs some paint correction and a bit of touch of most likely but man I got it cheap! (thanks g.forces! FJ member)

So thats the next thing going on the car Just gotta get the BLQ sold and then I should be good for a long while, got the timing belt change coming up in about 15k miles too but given my mileage rate recently thats probably about 9-12months away which is nice!

So for me its gonna be focusing on my CleanCarCulture stuff for a while and trying to grow that, I actually need to restock my stickers for that and get a t-shirt designed and on the website too. So if anyone wants anything CCC wise just hit me up via PM, I can hook it up :lol:
