NICE! a month will soon fly by!
Sounds like me and my misses!! lol
Brigante
just really annoying that i couldnt find any uk company that does these specific lights so i had to order in from germany. they take my funds immediately so my accounts 150quid lighter, then let me know a week later that they arent in stock and say it'll be around 10days before they get any more in. and then if/when they finally are in stock, i gotta wait for delivery from germany



i bet you got some right stick off her indoors for the st alloys lol
superpipstar

right some more pics as promiced. really happy with it but i was not to sure about the front so i ordered an ST front bumper!!! de badged the zetec and tdci badges as well.

ST front bumper will look good mate,
The ST bumper purchased new is cheaper than the ZetecS front lip purchased new,
Also a zetecS upper grill costs 30pounds more than an ST one
And i think the ZetecS lower grill is 20pounds more than the ST one,

So overall you have saved around 130 pounds.

I think you will also require some ST fog light brackets to mount the fogs but im not 100% sure if they come supplied with the bumper from ford.
But ford will supply fitting instructions with the bumper that should list all required parts to complete fitment.

Look forward to the end results mate,
Gloss black grills would look good on the st front end.
Andy H Dibley
Ah, see what you mean about the front end..

Having looked at the prices of parts though, Lenny is spot on about going for the ST look rather than the ZS which is really odd!

Found my grill (st) was cheapest from my dealer. Bought ZŠ lower from Allen Ford, but if you're got for the ST front end I think there was another site selling a genuine ST lower grill for cheaper!

Looks awesome though. The stance from the rear is nice!
TDCiST
See what u mean about the front bumper... How come you went for ST and not the Zetec S front lip??

superpipstar
I seen a white st up the road from me and the front end just looks well nice!! So I had to have it!!
Hopefully it's cheaper than a zs! dunno how much it's going to be yet got some people in the know so may get it cheaper!!
If I need the fog brackets it is not going to be on this week!! More expense!
superpipstar
Got some bits in the post today. Hopefully sunday im going to wash, polish, paint calipers and fit these if they fit!!!

Think a few people on here have done the conversion to the LED rears. Haz93 might be worth contacting as I believe he has sold his Focus so might have returned it back to standard and may have all his mods for sale. gumpy321 is another user who has done it I think.

Calipers and wheels look great,
Shame about the centre caps, perhaps DMB could manufacture some overlays to fit,
Some dark centre caps would finish it off nicely,
Gary Minty Jupe
Missed this thread somehow but car looks fantastic !
what paint did you use on the calipers as that's on my to do list as i bought a set of st wheels just waiting for them to come back from a refurb and colour change so need to smarten calipers and drums to keep it all tidy

i bought this off ebay [url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270825569640?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649"]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270825569640?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649[/url]
but i did not like the paint at all it was horrible! so i had a tin of hammerite smooth in the garage and came out mint! :)
Gary Minty Jupe

Yer there loads better than mine! There a bargin in my eyes!

I think yours look great and I see you got the blue centre caps fitted looks excellent,
I just linked to the 18" st alloys because yours were not available mate,
b4zz

cheers for the link to the lhd reverse light superpipstar.

thanks for the link to the alloys lenny and would they fit with out any isues and could i still have people in the back of my car sorry to hijack your post

No prob barry,
They are 2005-2007 ST 18x8 rims, they will directly fit your motor and overall the wheels will be around 3cm higher than your existing wheels.
With the st wheels being more alloy than tyre. You can still load the car with people no problem, you could even lower the car 35-40mm on 18's and still load the car with people,
If you require further information on this you can pm me or start a thread of its own, so as not to bog down Chrises thread.
superpipstar
Right havent been on here in ages!! Sorry for my lack of commitment to the forum!! :-)
I have finally had my front bumper fitted and fineshed. I well happy with the results and I think it looks the nuts!
photos are a bit shitty but you get the idea! Feel free the comment I woukd like to know your thoughts.
i will add photos in a min
happy new year!
Brigante

haven't seen your thread in a while mate but damnnn your motors looking sexy

 

i think your doing what liam did to his old focus before he bought an st. he had st front n zs rear too. tis a very nice combination

 

i've finally managed to find n fit a set of 5 door genuine st skirts

 

but now i've got my latest predicament which is what alloys to fit

jeebowhite

Moving this to the projects area!

liking what you have done fella the car is looking sweet
