White Lightning - 2005 Focus Build

So Little Red got laid to rest after deer hunting, and now
White Lightning is to replace it, I am looking to do pizza pan wheel covers and change the tires to one size taller after these wear out, I am also gonna do a grille block and some extra lights, this car has power locks and windows, cruise, tilt/slide steering wheel, as to where the last focus had manual everything, and all the options work....bonus!!!

All ideas will be greatly appreciated

And I found that this vehicle uses PWM for TCC lockup and I am not going to go into that!

Well, I don't know exactly why this landed in the Unicorn Corral. Looks like a nice enough car and if the pictures are any evidence, it actually exists.

Why is this here?

Yeah, and misleading title. I thought it was going to be about building a still to make your own ethanol fuel :-)

And that wouldn't have been a unicorn either, since under the right circumstances distilling your own ethanol for fuel has been the most economical choice in the past and may be again in the future.

A PWM for TCC from what I have read is used to softly engage converter lockup.

Still slowly working on my car and making it more efficient, hard to get results right now because the weather has been all over the place, but I did redneckify a lower engine cover from a 2012 focus to fit my car.

Is there a way to put this in the Aerodynamics threads instead of unicorns?
