Well it's almost spring here. I'm getting ready to make some changes to my 9 month old ( 20,000 mile) Focus ZX3 I really like the color lay out on the car. It is Sangria Red with black trim pieces (Grill, side mouldings, lower side rocker panels,rear tag & windows trim, mirrors, and door handles).

Here are the things I'll be doing in the next few week ends. Customize the upper and lower grill by using expanded metal mesh. Relocating the front turn signals to inside the huge head lights using lights from the truck parts store. Changing the front side amber turn lens to clear. I painted a rear 3 piece wrap around spoiler that goes below rear window Trim Black to match the other trim. Tinting rear windows 20% or so. Small WRC spoiler (will be black too?) Borla Cat back. New cold air intake with larger MAS. Shock tower brace. R1 coil overs lowering car 2". Upgrading to higher wattage head and fog bulbs to betterr spot moose! Hope to paint some of the interior trim pieces Red to liven up in the cab. Removing rear seat which I keep folded down anyway and building a platform to put a trap door to access storage The wheels are 16'Alumium with wide tires but they are Siver trying to figure out a color for them. Maybe Trim black with the outer circle silver. I'll post some before and after photos as I go!

Well the rear wrap around spoiler is on (must have 15 more hp lol) and the side signal lens changed. The tinting is scheduled for May 2, and I took the studded tires off today This week end I am going to a Solo II Test and Tune to see how that works.
