What first got you into modifying cars?
I got into cars because of my father Bruce. We always went to car shows when I was a kid so it's always been a goal to have a show car.
How long have you had your Focus ST?
I've owned my Focus ST for 2 years and 10 months, bought 11/3/12.
What made you choose the Focus ST over other cars?
I am a focus enthusiast and had a fully swapped SVT Focus Wagon before. I come from a Ford family!
What has been your inspiration behind this build?
I was born and raised in Southern California so I grew up surfing. Love Hawaii and anything Tiki! Just trying to reflect who I am at heart.
What has been the most fun part of this build?
Doing the little detail stuff like bamboo in the lower grille.
What has been the most painful part of the build so far?
Having my front end re painted 3 times because of deer, tires and other random road debris.
Whats your favourite modification to the car so far?
My favorite mod so far would be the BC Extreme Drop coilovers. I love low cars!
Do you have any more plans for the car?
Next plans would be water/meth, big turbo, LSD and playing with the idea of a custom wide body build.
Do you have anyone you would like to thank?
I would like to thank my father Bruce for always giving the inspiration and passion for the hobby, Jeff Woo for all the hydrographic and floral print work and teaching me in the process and all the rest of my family and friends for always being there and understanding
