Hi.

I own a Ford Focus MK3 ST3. I owe money on this car, but will not let that stop me from modifying it.

I am not going to list my modifications. That's not so important to me anymore.

In March, I got into a fight with my wife, and I popped the windows out in said car. I had lexan, and was going to install that in a multivaried process aimed at cutting weight. So, I popped out the windows with a hammer and 50 lbs weight. I haven't disclosed that to anyone outside of a very tight circle, because what comes next will have your head spinning if you don't know me. Those that DO know me understand and can handle the strange contradictory consequences and corcumstances.

My wife left the property, and I left the property immediately after. She came back to my car completely totaled.

I am not going to divulge the details right now. I am not inviting anyone to share their opinion, and at this point in my life I would recommend against wasting your time.

I am merely showing you my build. Insurance just bailed on me, and I am extraordinarily upset, but IJUST WANT MY CAR BACK, so everyone can kiss my hairy parts, I am taking my car home, ax marks and all, and I am rebuilding this car.

I am going to spot weld the body panels back together where they have been cut, I am going to replace the headlights, bumper, oil cooler, radiator, and intercooler. I'll replace all the windows with whatever comes quickest (lexan or glass), and I am going to replace the interior as I see fit. I'll have to clean out the gas tank, and I'll to paint the whole thing in the end (which will be uniquely difficult due to the ax marks).

If you want, you can follow along. If you want my time for opinions and judgements, my paypal is [email protected]. I could use parts money.
Have a good day.

Have you ever gotten the feeling about someone that... something was off? Maybe you're even getting that feeling right now. You should. This story is creepy, and every time I think about it I can feel it clawing at the inside of my skull.

That was the feeling my wife got when she met our new tenants for the first time, specifically the 'father'. Our life has been completely altered ever since.

Hope it all turns out for you!
Better days ahead. 🙂

More of the story was elsewhere here.
He just took out the windows.
A crazed inbred tenant family did the rest when leaving the property

If all you have left is your 'project of the millennia' car; The choice is easy...
I've been through rough times, but I've always made people pay their dues before I moved on. In your case, they seem to have moved to Utah and started a cult that you'll never find. Forget those fogerty's and put that Mad Max into action! I'm sure we'll meet up at some reservoir after half of the population has fallen to the overlord >:D

No, I'm only accepting cash pay for my time, ie having to read your overdone cynicism.

I didn't trash the car. I popped the windows, which I intended to remove anyway, but I did not trash the car. THEY TRASHED THE CAR. COMPLETELY. I didn't trash $13k worth of my last year, and ruin my own plans for the summer, and I especially am not asking for any money from you.
I'm just finally posting a build thread before I end up randomly losing my life to some ****ing methed up pedophile some day. It can ****ing happen to you, mate. It can happen to any of us. So, screw it, they just gave me an excuse to get real with it.

Get a 'patina' wrap, leave a couple of the more "aesthetically pleasing" (clean, smooth, placement?) Axe cuts. Raise the car, go with some meat on the tires like a 65 ratio, "steelies".

Def need roof top spot lightning.

Id do a side exhaust exit. Def mud flaps. Outfit the hatch with utility, think jeep famLyFe rock crawl, so a locked in place Axe, pick, Jack, etc.

Maybe consider no front bumper cover at all; just grab a TB performance crash bar and rock an open face beauty.

It sucked reading your original post man, I can say you've likely handled this better than I would of

Now, let's make some spiked ass lemonade.
