After all the cleaning was done, I was satisfied with how clean of a car I got.

Did a little bit of visual upgrades to the ol girl. I put some anodized aluminum value cover studs and a new sterring wheel on her.

Finished the jambs and painting for awhile, also still planning on what wheels I'm going with.

The wheel specs are 17x10 there on my friends ford focus, I'm thinking maybe 16s because 17s look a little too tall for my taste. I'm keeping the 4banger for alil while then I'm thinking about 383 stroker with a procharger or possibly just N/A sbc
