Thanks, well its an ugly looking bastard with half of it primer and paint. But when I get it some what finished I'll try and get some pictures of it up.

Also I just put new motorcraft IAC valve on and a msd street fire coil on to replace the original 21 year old 184,000 mile old pieces. Hopefully it will help this kinda rough idle.

drove to the cheapst gas station in my area and stuffed 17.76 gallons into the pig. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it >.<. and i also learned that its MUCH cheaper to fill this thing up than my Cummins Ram was. It ended up being just about 3/4 the cost of a full tank in the beast but the beast got better mileage so I think it will come out in the wash

I removed these very ugly painted on decals today that the previous owner had put on. I used paint thinner, and 3 hours later all the decals were gone! Time well spent! Those decals were brutal to look at and I'm happy that I put the effort to get rid of them! Also washed car after, and plan on waxing soon!

I know it really wasn't that big of a deal, but it was well worth it in the end!

Neglected it once again-the Focus has been getting all of the attention lately; I just put a Magnaflow cat-back on it this afternoon.

why did you get rid of the power dome?
Time to move on to something different. It was a great project, and it looked awesome. Money helped to pay for new cat-back for the Focus.
