    'Little Red' 13' Focus ST

    What's up everyone, I've been meaning to start a build thread for awhile, now that I've finally started to buy some aftermarket parts, spend some time on the forums, etc... For the record, my old account is @STinMO but I wasn't able to recover it recently, so I've been on the forums longer than my noob status says haha! Anyway a little about my ST-

    2013 Ford Focus ST, Race Red. Bought in May 2018, with 30K miles on it (one owner before me), currently at 44K miles. Unfortunately, Little Red and I have been separated for about 2 months now, as she lost compression in cylinder one = been at Ford forever and new motor. Scheduled to picked her up on Monday/Tuesday so only a few more days! I have wheels/tires, FMIC, and a rear wiper delete to do as soon as I get her back, I spoiled myself with my tax return. I don't have a ton of pictures on my phone to upload, however I will add some from my laptop later. Check my signature for mod list, and I will update this accordingly with pictures, info, etc... Look forward to sharing!

    Today I can add a picture of my new wheels though! They're TRmotorsports C4 18x8 wheels, they weigh around 19.5lbs, and I noticed a lot of people use them on their ST for AutoX. I love them and can't wait to get them on next week. For the record, they will be wrapped in Nitto Motivo tires (average tires, around $110 each, but didn't want to break my bank). Out the door wheels & tires was $1,088. I caught the wheels on a sale so saved a little money luckily.

    Future plans- Coilovers, New Tune, Upgrade Suspension Parts, New Speakers, and a lot more to come!

    Yeah I mean the build thread mainly... you know when someone is getting into it when a thread starts LOL

    I saw you had a bunch of stuff done already now you just got to document and share

    Thanks for the vote (never won and no longer get a chance... oh well maybe someone will start it back up)

    I feel ya! I'll get some pics of all the mods I have listed, some are chilling at home waiting for install since I haven't had it in almost 2 months lol

    This is a process for me, I just got "into" cars when I bought my ST, I'm still learning as I go but I'm excited

    Also have a pic after adding the Headlight Armor yellow fogs, they're great and have held up amazing through car washes, bad weather, bugs, etc...
