    Scrming's Over the Top Build...

    When I bought my ST back in October, i told pretty much everyone that I wasn't going to mod this car... well, since completely failed at that, i figured, what the heck, might as well embrace my failure and build another highly customized vehicle... much to my wife's dismay...

    As it stands, I already had a MRT exhaust, JBR RMM, a TT upper mount, and a Cobb AP tune...

    Now I really LOVED the MRT 2012 SEMA vehicle... a 2013 Fusion:



    I decide to steal a number of elements from the MRT Fusion and incorporate them into my ST... That whole imitation is the sincerest form of flattery thing!

    That being said I... I came of with a couple of rough photochops and shared them with Scott from MRT. Now, I'm on a limited budget, so this isn't a full out SEMA build... so I'll have to do things like reuse the stock wheels...

    Here are my poor attempt at photoshop:







    Last week we discussed the project and Scott agreed it would be pretty cool... Last Saturday we kicked off the projects by installing the hood vents, which some of you have seen and commented on...



    Very happy how they turned out!

    Yesterday, I was once again back at MRT to drop the ST off for the next step, PAINT! Scott and I finalized the paint layout. One thing that Scott is changing from my photoshops is he is going to put a grey border around the red, just like he did on the Fusion. It will make the transition from black to red less harsh. He is also going to have the red slightly narrower.

    Here is a horribly crappy cell pic as we were laying out some of the tape:



    Now, one thing I didn't photoshop was the interior. For the interior, we are going to do the center stack in red... depending on where we are in my limited budget we may do the pieces in the hydrographic carbon fiber... The other thing Scott is going to investigate the front door panels... We weren't sure if the panels can easily be removed...

    So now the hard part... WAITING!!! The ST should be heading to the paint booth this week. Scott will be sending me update photos and I'll be sure to post them here....

    It's amazing how this car can "corrupt" even the most responsible person! I'm contemplating a new exhaust, something I never thought I'd do to a car.

    I like the paint scheme, and it will definitely put your unique stamp on the car! (But I would do the hood vents in gloss black. I think that would look nicer than all red. Just my $.02)
    Mods Installed: Steeda and Unleashed Tunes; Eibach Pro Kit; Steeda Short-Throw Shifter Bracket; E-Focus RMM; Green Filter; Team Dynamics 1.2 Pro Race Wheels (Anthracite); OCDSpeed Resonator Delete; Redline Hood Struts; Hella Optilux Extreme Yellow Fogs; Hard-Wired Radar Detector; Ford "POWER" Button; 3-M Protective Aviation Tape under Front Lip; Hide-A-Plate front license plate holder; Redline Leather Shift Boot.
    Mods To be Installed: JBR Catch Can; Ford Racing "snorkel"; JBR Shifter Bushings.

    Yep... i was doing really good on the no mods... think i made it almost 2 weeks. I wasn't going to do the exhaust but Scott called me and said he needed an ST for development... Then Chad put his Cobb AP up for sale... just has been going down hill since then!

    Thanks for the feedback on the vents! I'll have to photoshop that and give it some thought...

    Now there's no way I won't know who that is rolling down the street! Would you mind sharing how much they're charging for painting the hood? I've got some ideas of my own but probably on more of a limited budget then you are since I'm in the process of moving.

    LOL! That's the idea!

    I'll have try and get a break down on the costs from Scott when the dust settles...

    Good find!



    The grey on the Focus will be a bit wider at the top of the hood and then taper down towards the bottom of the hood... The top being wider will match up a bit more with the roof molding on the Focus, which the Fusion doesn't have...

    Too bad the Ford emblem isn't centered between the hood and grill like the fusion. I like how the grey dissects the emblem on the fusion.

    Very cool, can't wait to see the finished product! Any plans for lowering it at all?
