I know this ain't gaming but had to share it with you guys. NOW WITH COMPLETED PICS

Post by Xindianna on 27/4/2010, 16:57

I know this ain't gaming but my hobby is working on cars, I'm a hardcore FORD Fan, one of these days i'd love to get a Tattoo with the Ford symbol on my arm And yesterday after a year of building her, My Wife-to-Be Wendy and I fired up our Focus for the first time

This is how she looked last year, I bought her accident damaged bout 4 years ago and only managed to start on her last year ....



And how she looks now ....



If anyone would like to see the full write up on her, here's the web address

Its looking very good you've done an amazing job so far but when do we get to see the finished article, i got all the way to the end of your diary and the car wasn't complete!!! It was like watching Chip Foose on Overhauling then cutting to an advert break!! Well done and i'm looking forward to the end result.
P.S can you do anything with a Vauxhall Zafira?

I'm a car nut myself. I have a love for all autos, for the most part. That being said, i'm a Ford guy by heart. We have a 07 Focus, and in a week i'll be the proud owner of a 92 Camaro RS with a built 350.

She needs some visual TLC.. but other than that.. sweet car.
