Hello and Welcome to Ford Owners Club also known as FOC

Almost every modification on the focus has been recorded in the Guides section of the forum previously linked above.

Thank you for reading and hope to see you on Ford Owners Club soon.

Here is my Build:

As my focus build approahes its finishing touches later this year 2013.
I've decided to take the time to finally create a build thread in picture,
Grab a cup of tea its picture heavy.

Later updated with an "auto-off" drl relay fitted to the rear fog light wiring loom,
So as if the rear fog light is switched ON
And the car is put in to reverse,
The "auto-off" relay will switch off the rear fog light while reverse is active, then switch the fog back on when driving forwards or in neutral.

Image1451.jpg

Image1460.jpg

Retro Fitted ST/RS dash pod with custom fitted ford racing boost gauge and oil pressure,
Then fitted a drl auto dimmer relay,
The gauges illuminate 100% during the day, then auto dim to 50% at night to reduce glare aswell as blend in with the standard dash illumination functionality's very happy with results on this.

ST primed bonnet lip and Custom built TriplrRcomposites ZetecS front Splitter supplied in Gloss black.

Image2293-1.jpg
Image2295-4.jpg
Lenny
Got the bonnet lip colour coded aswell as the engine bay covers, also fitted upper and lower zetecS grills having them sprayed gloss black along with the fog surrounds,
The results were better than expected.

Image2483.jpg
Image2474.jpg
Image2469.jpg
Image2473.jpg

Purchased some black headlights to replace the chrome ones made a huge difference to the shape,
Fitted them with Osram Night Breaker H1 and H7 aswell as some black housed 6000kelvin T10 parking bulbs, highly recommend the Osram Nightbreaker bulbs,
Before fitting the black headlights I left them in body shop to get the browe line colour coded,
Looks much better imo and keeping the chrome units in storage for MOT purposes encase they don't like the painted browe.

When purchasing the focus a requested the full size 16" spare wheel pack,

Image0995.jpg

I've now removed this as I'm soon fitting some 18" rims and got a good deal on AA roadside assistance,
Purchased a spare tyre well pad filler from a mk1 RS focus to fill the empty space in the boot floor much lighter than a full steel spare.

IMG_20130110_154154.jpg

it's about time you had a build thread lol

TDCiST
Looking Great Lenny! What engine you got fella? I'd have thought you'd see more than 120bhp with a remap if u got the 1.6tdci 110...
Lenny

Thanks dave,
My engine and injectors. Are the same as you in the 1.6TDCi
But my model was a 90ps so I've gotta upgrade to 110ps turbo to get over 120 lol
The little 90ps turbo is almost tuning blue he's blowing as hard as he safely can for me god bless em lol
FOCA

Good thread - keep up the good work!   

TDCiST
Ah you have the 90ps version! Explains it all!

Yeah the 110 turbo will help massively
Lenny

I don't think the 110 was an option over here,
It was , 1.6TDCi focus (90ps) and no 1.6TDCi fiesta's just the 1.4TDCi
TDCiST
Does that mean you don't have a DPF also??
Lenny

Does that mean you don't have a DPF also??

No still got a dpf for the present time anyways lol id like to get internals removed but unsure,

Excellent post, and congratulations for all your hard work.

Mods are always a matter of personal taste, what's most important to me is that they are done properly - by which I mean no bodge jobs held on with cable ties - and you have certainly done quality work on your car, and you should be proud of the results!

Well done :-)

Thanks Dave,
Its been a long enjoyable journey, minus the two trips to the doctors surgery lol
Id do it all again in a hearbeat very enjoyable and I was lucky the st pod turned out 90% ok lol that was a ball clenching 11 hours of cutting and cups of tea,

some very nice and intriguing mods, especially the second reverse light
Lenny

some very nice and intriguing mods, especially the second reverse light

Thanks Vince mate,
I've created a Guide on fitting the second reverse light in to a clear unit,
The Dremil style crafting tool is king for this type of modification aswell as cutting the dash,
Here is the Guide:

looks well good lenny!! ST front bumper with them wheels on would look soooooooo good! just buy it!! :) i want a splitter for my bumper dident even know you could get one fot the ST bumper!

Mike77

Very nice work mate,,,,, its addictive modification isn't it lol. I look at my car and think I haven't done much to it, but when you sit back and think of everything you have done over a period of time it all adds up :unsure: . What strut kit did you use for the bonnet mate, I like the look of that :)

Pete80

Car is a credit to you mate, wish I had the balls to do some of them mods

Lenny

Maybe next spring mate lol
I'm still lovin the Drl fog surrounds, if I fit the ST bumper I'll lose the Drl's
TripleRcomposites manufacture a gloss black splitter for the ST too, email Kevin and tell him lenny from fordownersclub.com sent you: triplercomposites@live.co.uk

Yes it is very addictive, id love to be content just to have a basic car for driving, no modifications and could just park it anywhere no worry,
The bonnet strut kit is model specific, see my guide and links here:

Car is a credit to you mate, wish I had the balls to do some of them mods

Thanks Pete,
Their not as hard as they look mate,
Key to all of them is take your time, and when cutting holes, cut a small hole then bore it out to the required size constantly stopping and trail fitment, this way you never cut too big and get a good fit,

Thanks for the comments guys,
jeebowhite

Crikey Lenny, when you put it in a thread like that you cant half see the difference! well done, and all your guides are a credit to you and a bonus for the forum. However, I still have to tell you, I hate you, I hate you, I hate you!!!! you have given me far too many idea's that I have pictured on my car, but I cant afford to do them - and now I am depressed and hate my car :p so thanks for that ;)

 

Only kidding, love you really ;) :p

 

As has been said, if only I had the cahoonas to do half the bits that you have done, I would be amazed!

 

I just want you to know that I may now have to sell my remaining kidney and come on a roadtrip and pay for your time with beers and more beers and just go crazy on my motor :p

lol thanks jeeb,
Many sacrafices have been made in the course of modification including beer, I ain't had a pint since 25th December but I'll celebrate when the wheels are on and lowerd,
I admire you for modding but not going crazy on the motor, the resistance I don't have personally as you can see on page 1 lol
jeebowhite

lol, the not going crazy is purely down to lack of funds ;) given half a chance I would have spent thousands on it thus far! or at least, I would have bought a better model and then modded it :p

Don my cap Lenny the car looks great, fair play to ya it's great seeing all theses mods I'm looking forward to seeing the new alloys and springs.
dustymiller

thats a lot of work , and tea , excellent job .

Aldoo

thats brilliant mate! really impressed with the job youve done! :)

 

..and i bet im not the only person who immediately checked their bank balance after reading this!!! haha

Hassen

Nicely done Lenny. Putting it altogether you can see from where you started and where you have reached.

If I had one more suggestion for a mod, it would be a recaro/ST interior for the car. That I think would be the cherry on top :)

Thanks Colin,
I'm looking forward to the fitting of wheels and springs, just need the tyres now and the funds,
all going well 05th April I'll have tyres on the rims and fitted to the car,
followed by a service and lowering in early May.

thats a lot of work , and tea , excellent job .

Thanks frank, has come a long way sad to see the end in sight because ill be lost for somthing to do in my spare time,  

thats brilliant mate! really impressed with the job youve done! :)
..and i bet im not the only person who immediately checked their bank balance after reading this!!! haha

lol thanks mate, on the outlook I wouldn't have comitted myself to taking it this far in modifications,
but I don't smoke or drink often, piece by piece I chipped away at my e-bay wish list surprisingly addictive though,

Nicely done Lenny. Putting it altogether you can see from where you started and where you have reached.
If I had one more suggestion for a mod, it would be a recaro/ST interior for the car. That I think would be the cherry on top :)

 
Sounds good mate,
I would like a black leather Recaro interior with a custom lined swade roof lining,
But the shipping cost on a facelift ST 5 door interior including door cards would be a serious cost in its own,

Shhhhhh!! His Missus has a price on his head as it is

lol not far wrong Charlie,
I'm always open to ideas though.

Ouch Gary mate,
That could be disappointing in two ways,
1. If she notices at the airport then its a long silent trip home,
2. If she doesnt notice and admire the enhancement then that can be disappointing too.

Nice job lenny and meticulous as ever lol now ive read that i think i need to shave again ;)

Thanks arthur lmao,
I'm only meticulous with the car mate, once it looks good to me I'm happy,
Not too bothered about my own appearance focus and the missus are easier on the eye than myself lol

Quick update
The18" ST Snow Flake have been fitted today,
I've only got two images at the moment as I'm now awake 24 hours since working nights this week I've finished work at 7am then got wheels done followed by packing up the 16'' for sale,
So here are the pics and I'll add more at the weekend, I'm now off to get some sleep before work at 11pm

Looking good Lenny (the car that is), they really make a difference!

Stoney871
The car looks mint but the driver is probably looking just right for an extra on Walking Dead.
:d
superpipstar

They just finish the car right off!! looks well good!!

Mate how come you have drums on the rear??? do all the 1.6 dervs come like that??

rear disk convertion would look ace!!

artscot79
Looks good mate rear disks are technically poorer than drums and have far more problems its a visual fad and extra to spend ide leave it as is i found rear disks to be a pain in the butt
Besides i reckon any more and the mrs will kill you in the car lol
Hassen

Looks awesome! How does the car drive like more importantly with the new tyres? And are the new springs and camber bolt on?
More pictures please. Wake up Lenny! :P

Besides i reckon any more and the mrs will kill you in the car lol

+1 exactly what i was going to say, rear discs are more hassle than they are worth for a realatively lighweight road car,  drums are cheaper, easier to maintain and simpler (especially for handbrake etc) Obviously discs are better for ultimate braking/ fade resistance on a high performance or heavier car/ towing but most of the braking is done by the fronts on a FWD car anyway

Lenny

i'm jealous mate i'm really jealous

Thanks very much charlie mate,
Took many hours to get this far with it really appreciate the feedback and i didnt think wheels alone could have such an impact on the overall apperance of the car,
  

Looking good Lenny (the car that is), they really make a difference!

  
Thanks mate lol the car is my good side, advantages of having a face like mine is you get free limo 5% window tint on every car you buy.

The car looks mint but the driver is probably looking just right for an extra on Walking Dead.
:d

 
Not far wrong there mate,
Bed is so under-rated lol I could have done without sleeping yesterday as I had so many things to do,
I was under presure to get the 16's balance checked and ensure theirs no buckles which the results came up 100% clear, then had to get them valeted to remove all trace of tar and polish them followed by parceling up the 16" for dispatch took 5 hours now seems the sale won't follow through, non responsive so their going on e-bay tomorrow.
Very annoying as I could have slept yesterday instead of packaging four wheels that are now going nowhere, had the buyer made contact.
Very well packed though, look like giant "baby belle" cheese.

Thanks Chris,
Have you lowerd yours ? If yes have you got any pictures from the side of the ride height,
And regarding the rear drums/calipers my focus was a "STYLE" model from ford at time of purchase, it would be higher than "climate" but lower than "ZETEC"
I was looking at zetec spec but I got a 2,000euro off cash deal on the "STYLE" it has heated windscreen, electric windows,bluetooth,voice control,air-con and the 16" snow flake alloys, only things it doesn't have that the "ZETEC" does is: rear discs and sports springs, but I'm set to eliminate one of those final diferences next month, so the only thing missing is rear discs and calipers,

Looks good mate rear disks are technically poorer than drums and have far more problems its a visual fad and extra to spend ide leave it as is i found rear disks to be a pain in the butt
Besides i reckon any more and the mrs will kill you in the car lol

 
+1 arthur
I agree rear discs would be nice and enhance the look of the car but I must draw a line somewhere lol
I have sacrafised all possible since last december to get this far with the wheels and lowering next month,
I'm taking a modification holiday in june until october, I've been spending every spare cent on it since 2010 and I've loved every day of it, but its time for a break for a bit and enjoy the existing mods.

Looks awesome! How does the car drive like more importantly with the new tyres? And are the new springs and camber bolt on?
More pictures please. Wake up Lenny! :P

 
Thanks very much mate,
Its not lowerd yet lol I'm starting to wonder if it will be ok to lower it since she's riding close enough to the arches,
But the ford endorced eibach kit is a 40mm drop so that will drop the car by the same amount as the side wall on the tyres so will be fine plus its all ford parts so should be compatable togeather .
Lowering and camber arranged for mid May.

Before:
IMG_20130110_151418.jpg

After:
IMG_20130405_084110_zps5432db18.jpg

The grip is very strong, cornering has no body roll or lean,
Steering turn in is reduced so the car now turns a wider radius on full lock,
However camber adjustment and lowering may help this turn and lean.
Torque is more direct to the road now the car doesn't squat when you put the foot down.
Steering feels a little heavy compared to the 6.5" wide 16" wheels these 8" wide make it feel a small bit more effort to turn.
And finally take off speed is slightly slower due to the bigger wheels , I mean diesels always need to be pushed in 1st and 2nd gear but I notice it a tad more with the 18x8
Handling at speed and grip top top class,
160kmh on 18's feels like 110kmh on 16's perhaps due to the 18's having a 2" less side wall profile theirs no tyre squat at speed.
And here's one advantage you wouldn't think of;
The exhaust is now louder!
The bigger rims allow more sound to travel from the rear arches where the bigger rubber tyre side wall would absorb the noise, plus the car is currently 0.4" higher than previously.

He cant hes making it up to the mrs wink wink or hes dead lol

i think she's already had the keys off him n used the car to mow him down

  
lol she's been strangely calm about this one guys, not sure if its because she has devised some sort of evil plan,
or she's beginning to like the mods,

+1 exactly what i was going to say, rear discs are more hassle than they are worth for a realatively lighweight road car,  drums are cheaper, easier to maintain and simpler (especially for handbrake etc) Obviously discs are better for ultimate braking/ fade resistance on a high performance or heavier car/ towing but most of the braking is done by the fronts on a FWD car anyway

Thanks foca,
The cost would spiral when fitting rear discs with ne handbrake cable , hubs, brake lines, calipers, pads, discs, balance and tracking overall around 4-500 including labour and that's for second hand calipers with fingers crossed and butt clenched that they are reliable second hand calipers.
Not worth it for that money I could upgrade the fronts to AP Racing 4 pots.

Took 38 pictures on the way home from work today at 7am
I'll edit the reg and upload when possible, here are a few for now though:

And thank you all for the continued support, knowlege and comments I really appreciate it.

lol often tempted but would never venture,
I'm worried about lowering mate,
I've spent 190pounds on eibach springs and camber though,
Would a 40mm drop be too much ?
Would I gain anything from lowering it ?
