The geordies were excellent!
Spent £800 on the car including a new wheel refurb in the colour of my choice.
I was sold, put down a deposit.... few days later they called to say everything was ready and off i went to pick her up!
Jager King
Few pictures i took when i picked her up.

Looks beautiful bud I have had a shot of the facelift of this car and wow it is immense I wish I could afford it or I would have one bud being only 20 years old insurance is like 5000 plus so ogling over everyone else's has to do
Jager King
haha yeah good cars with all the gadgets. i had a 210bhp glanza v, supercharged gen 7 celica gts then a dc5 before this so it was a change going from Jap to Ford but im glad i did. :)

I then sold the spoiler i got with the boot i purchased, realised it had came off a 5 door ST and not the 3 door (as the spoiler was different), worried i wanted to try on the new boot to see if it fitted ok

took off my spoiler
[img]http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd57/Glanza_Turbo/image47_zpsf5bedaf4.jpeg[/img]

took off the plastics and didn't want to go about chopping wires so removed the originals ( as the facelift uses different plugs for some parts )

Much better.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]One of the RS guys i have on facebook has bought and fitted the WRC spoiler (crazy huge awesome looking spoiler!) lol and said i can have his RS spoiler. [img]http://www.fordrst.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/yahoo.gif[/img] [/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]He's coming up to Scotland to visit Sitech Racing on the 29th Oct, so all going well, i'll meet up with him then. [img]http://www.fordrst.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/grin.gif[/img] [/font]

yeah will keep it updated
salsheikh
Steven, I'm well impressed and well jealous of what your about to achieve. Are you planning to fit the RS bonnet vents too? I put some on mine (copies), there is a thread knocking about somewhere.
Jager King
Yes mate, I was going to get the copies too on ebay but was told to buy genuine as the heat deforms them... Have you had any problems with yours? As there is a big difference from 45 to 200 lol
gumpy321
Well done, keep up the good work. I'll be watching this thread for more updates...
Lenny
Looks excellent mate welcome to the forum,
I never knew the 5 door st hatch rear spoiler was different to the 3 door st hatch rear spoiler.
And are you keeping it electric orange when fitting the RS body?
Preee
Wow , very nice and it will look amazing when its all finished , welcome to FOC
Jager King
Thanks for the welcomes :)

Neither did I Lenny, the 5 door one looked to be just the same as the zetec spoiler / brake light.

Yes keeping it E.O
Haz93
The ST spoiler is the same on 3 and 5 door models, the one on the boot you purchased is the standard facelift spoiler painted orange, the previous owner must not have liked the ST one

Nice car btw :)
Jager King
Nah, this was fitted from the factory. The ST was a LHD.
Maybe they put on a different spoiler in other countries.. I don't know but i used a picture off google to show the exact one in EO fitted with a 5 door ST.

not had a problem with mine at all. i got them from rsparts on the stowners forum but he sells them on ebay too. Not heard of any deforming, I will ask on the other forum. there are carbon ones on ebay btw and someone on the 'other' forum is selling a carbon bonnet - new.
Jager King
That's good news! I seen carbon ones on there for 99, my friend just bought ones for 199 :(

I might get some from RS parts then. How did you fix them on as I take it they won't have the parts for the clips underneath.

My focus had a stock black rear spoiler when I bought it, and had no gaps in the spoiler but since fitting the ST/ZetecS rear spoiler my Mpg has dropped by 2mpg must be due to the down force drag of the gaps in the spoiler but I much prefer it to the stock one.
Sorry to have taken slightly off topic but just thought id share my findings.

Steven, I spoke to Nick (RSParts) and he advised that there was a bubling issue due to the heat and they have stopped production for now. He has applied some self adhesive heat refelctive foil on his. I cut my bonnet using a jigsaw and then used Sikaflex sealant to bond mine on. There is a fella on the said forum selling genuine vents for £100 so if you decide on a genuine or a copy bonnet then this could be useful. let me know and i will send you the contact info.
Stoney871
An electric orange RS, that will definitely be a standout vehicle.
Looking forward to seeing the finished article.

Yeah that's what I meant, was told with any of those parts to run a heat gun over them gently to bring out the bubbles first then pop them before primer / painting etc but I have been quite lucky to find mostly genuine parts.

I have contacted said member with the vents buddy! Thanks for that, did you use templates ?
gumpy321
When do you reckon you'll have the car finished by? Do want want it done before or after new year?
Jager King
It'll be well in to 2013 I reckon.
salsheikh
Steven, yep i usd the templates that were on the guide on the ST forum and had to increase the size of the template to make it fit. i used a drill and made four pilot holes and then a jigsaw to cut the bonnet. took me less than an hour to do.

on ebay there are some copy RS bonnets that you could use if you decide to buy the genuine vents.

Jager King
Yeah, I seen the used genuine bonnet before, was on an ST but he's obviously sold the vents off it.
Gonna have a crack at modifying my one.
The chap with the genuine vents has just got back to me.
Jager King
Well i thought i was finished with the road trips... turns out i was wrong..

After comparing doors with a friends RS one night and me being a picky burger :facepalm: :lol: I decided to have a search for facelift ST / RS doors.

Luckily I found some on ebay with the mirrors and door cards at a good price, i negotiated a good deal (as the doors weren't kept in the best condition) then it was off to West Yorkshire to pick them up the next day.

That night, i recieved a message from a lad on here offering me a nearly new RS exhaust with powerflex mounts for next to nothing...
I wasnt going to bother with one untill i had got most of the parts on but he was also in West Yorkshire ( just 14 miles from the doors )
I couldn't turn it down.

A few pics when i got it home.
[IMG]http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd57/Glanza_Turbo/image45.jpeg[/IMG]

Was bored and decided to give it a freshen up

...after making it clear to Suki that it wasnt her new chew toy!

Jager King
