    More to come...

    Here are the first pictures of my new car.






    The first "mod" I did was de-badge the focus emblem.



    Here are a few pictures from my first ST meet with NorCal ST








    Next, I tinted the windows with 3M Color Stable film in 35% up front and 5% for the back windows.





    The FORD emblem overlays came next. Carbon fiber with flat black in color.




    I was not a big fan of the stock wheels so I bought new ones. These are Enkei YS5 in Hyper Black 18x8 +45. The lug nuts are Muteki SR48 in Red.





    After the wheels I installed an Injen intake in Wrinkle Red. I did not like the blue filter so I also put on a Black Injen Hydro Shield.




    I had a free day recently so I painted my calipers red using G2 caliper paint. I think it turned out great and definitely improved the overall look of my ride.





    Finally, I put on an FSWERKS Short Shift Kit. This was super easy to install. I set it up with a 30% reduction in shift and it feels great!



    Next up I have Hoen Xenonmatch led fog lights that I will be installing tonight after work. If they do not looks good I will be putting in hid's. I prefer the look of color matching lows and fogs. I am not a fan of yellow fogs.

    Future plans for this car include Coilovers, Exhaust, FMIC and a Tune. Also, I plan on more appearance mods here and there. I will update along the way and look forward to comments, concerns and criticism.

    I installed my Hoen Xenonmatch Fog Lights. These match pretty well to the stock HID's. It is really hard to capture the lights color with my iPhone's camera but at least it's an idea.

    The Hoen bulb is installed on the drivers side in the pic below, and the stock bulb is on the passenger side to show the color difference.

    I had my exhaust done yesterday. I went the custom Magnaflow route. Deleted the stock resonator and muffler/tips. Had Magnaflow muffler #12616 installed where resonator was. Dual 4" stainless steel tips. This exhaust is perfect for what I was going for. Nice low exhaust tone. It sounds smooth when the rpm's drop. Wot is loud but not obnoxious.

    Updates.

    First, I installed a Curt #11431 for my 1up-usa bike rack. I had to remove one rear wheel so I could angle the hitch to squeeze over my custom exhaust, but it fit with some effort.







    Next, I installed a Boomba short throw shifter and aluminum shifter base bushings. The Boomba short throw was set to 30% reduction and my FSWERKS short shift plate is also set to 30% reduction. Shifting now feels amazing and exactly what I was looking for. I am very impressed with these products and should of installed these sooner.





    Also, minor change but I put on The Stubby 4" antenna. It looks a lot better than the stock antenna.



    Now I am patiently waiting for the arrival of my Redline Goods shift boot. I ordered it black with white thread to match the ST3 seats, and 1" shorter to accommodate the reduction from the Boomba shift knob.

    Finally, my ST saw snow for the first time. I have Thule K-Summit chains which fit my after market wheels and tires. These are so awesome and easy to use. I had no trouble driving in the almost white out conditions. I highly recommend these for people who don't see snow all season, but want to drive up to the mountains for weekend trips or whatever.



    Stay tuned...More to come...

    Update - Installed my Redline Goods shifter boot. It matches well with my full leather recaro seats. Also, installed Stoptech slotted rotors and Posi Quiet ceramic pads all around. The rotors are very good quality and look amazing. I had the Posi Quiet ceramic pads on a pervious vehicle and they work great for daily drivers. Low dust and good stopping power.
