Figured this year was as good as any year to post up a Focus Rising 2015 Build Thread beings there's a good bit being done on it. The list is a long one this year and not a simple one. Some of it will be done by FR15, some may not make it done in time. So without further ado here is the plans:

1.) Shaved and Tucked Engine Bay:
- Shaved Radiator Support with No Holes except for Headlight Mount and Hood Bumper Mounts
- Remove stock Grill to Rad Support Plastic Piece and fill holes. Will be replaced with a custom piece.
- Remove Battery Box and flip to the trunk setup
- Remove Battery Box Bracket and Air Box Support Bracket
- Remove Focus Central Strut Tower Bar and replace with Focus Central Chromed Strut Tower Covers
- Remove Coolant Tank and replace with Radiator with built in Filling Neck similar to Wobb's
- Shave off Coolant Tank Bracket from Strut Tower
- Remove Coolant Lines from Rad Support Piece and fill holes
- Remove PS Tank from Strut Tower, planning to figure out how to run a 05-07 Duratec Setup
- Tuck Harness Wires
- Tuck Drivers Side Harness behind Fender
- Smooth Strut Towers
- Smooth Strut Tower Ripples
- Shave and Smooth where Brackets previously were
- Smooth and Fill All Holes on Each Side
- Smooth / Fill Battery Box Holes on Driver's Side
- Smooth / Fill Bracket Holes on Driver's Side
- Smooth / Fill Holes on Each Vertical Side of Engine Bay
- Smooth / Fill Hood Prop and Coolant Tank Holes and other holes on that side (?)
- Remove Wipers from Wiper Tray under Cowl
- Move Fuse Box to Wiper Tray
- Install all 3 VF Motor Mounts all Polished to Perfection
- Smooth Wiper Cowl, Fill Wiper Holes, Paint Deep Gloss Black
- Paint Bay Sides 2001 Zinc Yellow and Paint Firewall Deep Gloss Black
- Paint Engine and Trans in a High Temp Paint (Color still being tossed around)

2.) Return Yellow Car to an Air Suspension:

- K Sport Coilovers with US Bags Setup for the Front
- Airlift Rear Focus Easy Street Arm's with Airlift Bags for the Rear
- Accuair E-Level for Management
- Custom Tank & Management Display in Rear Hatch

3.) Jackson Racing Supercharger:
- Install Jackson Racing Supercharger
- Have McNew's Automotive in Dillsburg, PA tune it

4.) Misc. Items Needing Installed:
- Install Autopower Roll Bar Painted in Zinc Yellow
- Install Chromed Contour Valve Cover
- Install Chromed Hood Hinges
- Install Redline Tuning Polished Hood Struts
- Repaint and Install New Zinc Yellow Hood
- Paint and Install Shaved MK1 Hatch

I'll probably add stuff over time but I will be sure to update this thread as we go.

Glad to see someone else finally doing this. As I told you at H2O, if you need help with anything let me know.

Guess I need to make mine even cleaner huh?

A little more update, back at the end of September the car got picked up at H2Oi by Jeremy (slocussvt) for some of the bay work which he'll be knocking out for me this winter after working out a trade that benefits both parties.

Loaded Up:




Spending the winter in Georgia:
