Here are a couple of pics of my new Focus with mods I've managed so far. I hope to modify it more as and when funds allow.

Think the colours go quite well together.
C955FD26-4662-4699-AA34-AB9277C3551D-722

I decided to take the plunge and try to wrap the rear diffuser! After fighting with it for a little while I'm reasonably happy with it.
AD34882B-382D-4D7D-B587-DD915FEC5953-590
So after wrapping the diffuser decided to have a go at the Chrome Boot Handle.

And a pic of the 2 together.
B3B29CB2-00D0-4B18-8AA2-3F3653BC3AFA-732
Decided to cheat and buy an already wrapped bonnet lip. Unfortunately it's a copy part that has been wrapped so fit isn't perfect but pretty happy with it!
So it's gone from Chrome lip,
BCAB28B7-B2BB-4E20-8176-BC957C05852D-771
To no lip,

looking very nice dude

Highwaymanuk
Cheers guys!
DanGersFord I want to do the twin reverse light but not sure how to sort the Fog light?
Also looking at door handle LEDs and maybe some DRLs.
b4zz

looking good and liking the carbon wrap.the wheels suit the car well.

was the carbon wrap easy to do?as thinking of trying it my self and are the fog surounds and bonnet suround easy to take off?

Highwaymanuk
Cheers B4zz.
Wrapping isn't to hard gets easier with practice but I cheated with bonnet lip and bought a pre wrapped one off Ebay.
Bonnet lip is held on with 3 lugs and sticky strips so just a case of gently pulling it off, and the fog rings needs a gentle push out of the surrounds! Rings were a pig to wrap though!
Preee

Looks great , wheels look much better i hated the titanium wheels on my old focus they were terrible to clean

Highwaymanuk
Cheers Preee! Yeah the titanium wheels weren't my favourite design either, like the mondeo rims but originally was toying with painting the centre body colour and having the lip Silver/Chrome but found these ones at a bargain price. They could do with a refurb as there are a few blemishes but do I keep them this colour or go with original plan?
Highwaymanuk
While nosing around on the Internet I was surprised to find a pic of my car in an Auto Express article!

Highwaymanuk

Highwaymanuk
Not updated here for a while, So after a little time and effort my Led Rears went from bright chrome effect.
null-19.jpg
To lightly tinted.
null-20.jpg
The difference between standard bright and Fly eye tinted!
null-18.jpg
I got offered a hardly used K&N so thought it'd be rude not to.
null-18-1.jpg
Tried it without the cover on but it sounded like the exhaust was blowing so decided to stick the cover back on!
Finally got round to doing Twin Reverse Lights!
null-1-2.jpg
Also the chap that made my ST style wing badges made me matching Ford badges!

I've also got the wheel badges but not got them on yet.
DanGersFord
The rear lights look alot better!
b4zz

liking the rear lights they look much better.

was the fly eye kit a pain to do as I am thinking of smoked rear light for mine at some point but don't seem to find any so might go down the fly eye route

Highwaymanuk
Cheers b4zz!
The fly eye wasn't to bad as I have only done the flat area of the light I'm sure if you take your time and heat it you'd be able to get a decent finish on the curved part of the lights aswell though!
b4zz

ok cheers for that hiwaymanuk

Highwaymanuk

b4zz

liking the new sticker and you have got a very nice shine from the paint work.

can I ask if you still have the standred bumper on? or is it a st one as I like the front spliter.

Highwaymanuk
Cheers b4zz, it is an ST bumper Triple R Composites do a splitter for the Zetec S not totally sure about a standard bumper though. Could always ask though!
georgen

Car looks sweet mate, loving the changed look on front and rear, it does look mean now. :) are you going to drop its ride height, even if not think some wheel spacers would make the stance a bit meaner.

Highwaymanuk
Cheers Georgen, All things on the to do list along with finishing the kit ( Skirts & spoiler), ReFurbing the wheels and also Headlight Brows and FlyEye!
I had Mk1 RS alloys in my old Mk1 wagon and they filled the arches perfectly so will definitely be getting spacers to go with the springs, Eventually! LoL
b4zz

Cheers b4zz, it is an ST bumper Triple R Composites do a splitter for the Zetec S not totally sure about a standard bumper though. Could always ask though!

cheers for the info n the front bumper fella and I emailed them and they don't do a spliter fro the standred focus bumper got to be a st or zetec s one

Highwaymanuk
Have you thought about a Seat Cupra splitter similar sort of look, or how about making one piece of facia board cut to shape and painted the bottom of standard bumper is flat I'm sure.
Highwaymanuk
After seeing so many Mk2 Focus RS's and ST's with darker headlights at FordFair I'd decided to do mine! I did think about buying some vinyl headlight brows from DMB but thought I could probably make them myself. So my xenons have gone from
null_zpsde5c206e.jpg
To This
null_zps27e15520-1.jpg
Ending up like this!

Sweet mod on the lights :)

yea I have thought about the cupra splitter but I am no good at cutting anything.

there again if I can find one cheap then I think I might give it a go

liking the look of the head lights very agresive looking

Highwaymanuk
So I finally got round to sorting the mod that my daughter bought me for my birthday, with a bit of a huge hint to the wife I got a leather cover for my armrest which I think goes a lot better with the leather seats. It was a case of glueing the cover to the plastic armrest and tucking the surplus material between the 2 parts of the armrest.
null_zps5c1a9f96.jpg
And fitted back into the car.

For Christmas the Wife bought me a spoiler for the wagon so now all I've got to do is find some 5dr skirts and get them all painted and fitted.

liking the look of the spolier
Highwayman
Decided to give my wheels alittle spruce up, don't think they have turned out to bad for a quick job in the back garden with rattle cans.

Hoping the new colour scheme makes the wheels look bigger as in the old colour they didn't look like 18s!
b4zz
liking the new colour on the wheels and makes the car stick out more.
looks like they have come out well for a quick job like you said.
the whole car looks sweet once you get the spoiler fitted and find some skirts it make give it a whole new look again
Highwayman
Cheers B4zz the spoiler is in sprayshop at minute just waiting for it to be finished with something special.
Finally got my cruise control activated and with having power fold mirrors as standard now have the cool mod of them folding in when locking the car and unfolding when unlocking!

A big thanks to Tezza.

Hey Highwayman, really REALLY nice looking so far (and chop chop with the side skirts, they add a lot to the looks :P ).

 

Having an ff2 estate myself (titanium X), I'd like to give it the "econetic sport" look (or Zetec S there in the UK). Already purchased the front lip, will get the side skirts (they're the same as the ones moounted on the ST, and same size as hatchback afaik) - but couldn't find anything to add to the rear, to complete the kit. The factory ECOnetic estate comes with standard rear bumper I believe, nothing added. Zetec S rear diffuser would also be too big (don't even know if it fits estates, as I've only seen it on hatchbacks).

 

Until I saw your car! So the question is: the added lip on your rear bumber, is it ford original? Does it come separate and as an adition to the normal bumper, similar to the front lip on the zetec S? Or did you buy the whole bumper as it is? I can't seem to find anything similar, looking on ebay (and generally googling for it). Any tips would be appreciated!

 

Thanks.

Highwayman
Cheers for the compliment on the wagon just in process of fitting my Ford rear spoiler.
The Zetec S rear valance is just an add on part like the front lip. I was lucky and found mine as a damage repairable part on eBay but you can get the straight from Ford!
Highwayman
Finally got my Spoiler Painted, Carbon Dipped and Fitted!
