Hey All,

We are new to this forum and we have seen some great looking cars and got some good ideas!
We would love to hear of any ideas from you all, I have added some pics would love to hear of what you all think :)
We have only had the car for couple of months and done a few bits to it now... Changed the alloys, Exhausts and the odd painting jobs. The headlights are next in the list.

Hi guys,

Very nice looking Zetec S you got there, I think the red vents and calipers look awesome :)
Could do with some foglight surround DRL's and maybe some dmb graphics badge overlays??
Not too keen on the quad exhaust, personally think twin would look better but just my opinion
Great to see lots of innovative mods to these lovely Zetec S' :)

hey welcome car looks great i've got quad system think its sets back off great is it a full cat back??
SteveandMichelleFocus
Hi harrison,
Thanks for the post. Interest to read your opinion on our exhausts we did think about a different design and went for those in end and are really happy with them but everyone has different tastes. Couldn't agree more about the drl's but we've seen the headlights on eBay with them built in and a hid kit and angel eyes for £480 bit pricey I know, so we're thinking of going for the cheaper option.
Do you know of any induction kits for the zetec s?
Also I know a bloke who has custom made and sells front splitters for the zetec s for £75 which is a brilliant price! And there finished in black gloss :)
I'm also having trouble getting my roof aerial off, any suggestions?

Hi Liam !
Thanks for the praise on the exhaust, no its not a full cat back just been custom made from the back box, do you know if you can get a full cat back for the Tdci zetec s? If so where?
Thanks

Focus looks tasty!

I'm loving the red bit on the rear bumper! is it just paint? Looks good!
SteveandMichelleFocus
Thank you that's very helpful :) do you know if that improves sound and performance?
.Ryan
Welcome mate, awesome car, great to see some more Zetec S'!

I have an induction kit on mine, it's only one of the cheap universal ones, but I'm going to go back to standard Ford until I can get a full induction kit!

Hi,
please give me more info regarding the front splitter in gloss black and some pictures if possible,
id be very interested in this,

the red vents in the front lip is a nice touch mate,
if you get a pliers to the grips on the aerial and turn towards the passenger side it will come loose for you to unscrew by hand,
and regarding an induction kit codered manufacture a custon built induction system and intercooler designed specificly for the 2.0 TDCi engine to provide proven gains in performance,

not that i am aware of mate,
on the code red website it saus it is designed to be a direct replacment to the original and the have a PDF guide on their showing how to fit it, says it reduices charge temps by 30% and i havent heard of anyone having errors with the kit,
these intercoolers were selling for 900euro last janyary and are now lwss than half price, i hope they keep stock of them until i can afford one too.

i dont have a facebook account but hopfully i can still view the page. thanks very much

Hi, Welcome here.
Car looks great, i really like the little touch's that give it character. Id add overlays too like Haz said.

Like Lenny said... Can you give more information on the front splitter? I have a Zetec S and its no longer on mine however id like it back on there. Information is highly appreciated.
As for aerial, what are your plans to it?

wonder how much shipping to ireland would be,
i plan to have my grills and fog surrounds done in gloss black so this splitter would match nicely too.

That looks awesome! Would it just stick underneath the current ZS bumper?

I've seen these on eBay for the st bumper look really nice they screw to the lower bumper I think.

Hi im thinking of doing the fog light surrounds and front grille in gloss black too I think it would be a nice touch accompanied with the black front splitter :) I'm sure he will post to Ireland I can't see it being a problem if your paying shipping charges!

Looks nice.. how much?

I know K&N do an induction system for the focus, sorry if mentioned already.
I have just done a retrofit to the bi xenon st headlights for about 320 altogether, plus the DRL's were 98 with shipping but defiantly worth it in my opinion, looks a lot smarter than the units with drl's built in.
Also from ford you can buy the ST rear LED lights for about 250 quid. They look really nice too.

The Bi Xenon St headlights were purchased in pieces as they did not come complete. Also they can't be purchased anywhere NEW except for from a Ford dealer. They will charge between £800 - £1000

Cheers Harrison, think the DRL are next on the list!
Just ordered the front splitter so hoping it arrives and on the car in time for the ford fair. :D

I seriously need get me an ST bumper or Zetec lip. Its killing me having a semi naked motor.

That guide is fantastic for fitting the DRLs, do check it out and youl install them with ease.

Hi Patrick,
I was thinking of getting the st bumper but to be honest I think it's going to be a lot of hassle so I'm just going to paint the grills and the fog light surrounds gloss black along with the front splitter, it should look decent :) where abouts did your upper grill from? That's a good look mate :)

I fitted the ST upper grill to my Zetec S:

no mate,
the only lower grill designs available at the momment are the zetec s, the style or the titanium,
i have saw some chrome mesh to fit over the grill but its such a big area mate would look pure nasty
and im not a chrome fan personally even though i did fit a titanium grill, i now have a zetec s grill ready for painting and fitting when funds allow.
liam-20
hey steve nice looking car if you want an st bumper you need a lot more bits then you may think, i upgraded my titainum bumper to an st one and i dint relise how much stuff i need to buy

*st bumper
*head light washer covers
*fog light holders
*chrome fog light surrounds
*under tray
*top and bottom grill & fog light grills

Pain in the *** but well worth it.
jockrobin

(I will be visiting the shop in Bangkok next month and will report back with my findings)
mixmasterlooney

Sorry for digging up an old thread but i will be attempting to fit the DRL myself one i get them, that guide on ebay with american english is terrible. WTF is a parking light? i will have to go through the FOC guide in details once i have the DRL but both guides look very different. i will also purchase the Splitter, it looks sick!

 

I have always thought that zetec S front lower skirt looked a little bit out of place, the front splitter completes it.

 

I am a noob with any sort of car painting spraying and this may be a daft question but how does one paint the grills gloss black? I can't seem to get my head around how such a rough surface can become so well glossed. I am even considering investing in some sort of painting kit to do my mods to my satisfaction. All in the future planning i will start a build thread once i get a hold of my parts with some pics etc 

STEADS

Like yourself kurt i am thinking of doing the same with the fog surrounds and top and bottom grills no expert on spraying by a long shot have done bits and pieces in the past which are well within the scope of ametures like us i do know if your spraying platics you have to coat them in plasticoat first this stops the paint peeling straight off gives it a base to adhere to the part i find hard is getting the gloss affect with the laquer top coats .
