  1. Apologies in advance for the length of this post but there are a lot of issues to resolve and I’d really appreciate some advice, guidance and comments. This is my 2006 Focus Zetec Climate 2.0, Eve. I want to fit an ST body kit and get her looking fabulous once again. I got her in July 2006 with 6,000 miles on the clock, in seemingly immaculate condition. She’s now done 62,000 miles and is looking a little battered and bruised but is a great car, mechanically sound and very reliable. Here’s a tour of her various issues… The front bumper took a nasty wack and also has some scuffing on the corner: Options to fix: replace with either a new or salvaged ST bumper. The bonnet has a weird dent on the right hand ridge and four rusting stone chips: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged bonnet. We had a fight with a multi-storey car park. We lost. The rear passenger side door is a mess: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged door (I’d need to retain my current trim and speaker). The rear wheel arch also took some of the pain: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop. I reversed into a stupid hand rail in a hospital car park and created this lovely dent: Options to fix: replace with a salvaged tailgate (I think the dent is too close to the edge for a body shop to easily rectify). The rear bumper has a little scuff too: Options to fix: replace with either a new or salvaged ST bumper (I need to retain the reversing sensors). The rear pillar has some deterioration to the paintwork which has become gradually more apparent over the last few years. I guess there was a small touch-up job done here prior to me owning the car: Options to fix: get it repainted at a body shop or do nothing. The rear driver’s side door has two nasty stone chips, the one by the door handle has dented the panel. Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged door (I need to retain the trim and speaker). As additional issues, I’d like to replace the standard spoiler with an ST, add side skirts (which may cover up some of the damage to the wheel arch) and tidy up my wheels – I’m contemplating getting them painted black rather than replacing them. As I’ve been thinking my way through this project I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I should get the car vinyl wrapped. This would help with a number of the above issues and (as long as I had neat panels underneath) would give the car an “as new” appearance. I think my plan should be as follows: 1 - get quotes from a body shop for repair prices for the wheel arch, doors and bonnet. If I’m wrapping then paint finish isn’t important, I just need clean, dent free panels. Any recommendations of body shops in North London, Herts, Essex? 2 – source replacement parts that can’t be repaired economically in stage 1. Parts I may need: bonnet, 2 x rear doors, tailgate, ST front bumper and grille, ST rear bumper, ST spoiler, ST side skirts. If I wrap the car, it doesn’t matter so much what colour the replacement parts are… my gut feeling is that I should go for black doors and tailgate and worry less about the rest. I assume using salvaged parts would be considerably cheaper than new, can anyone give me a rough guide as to what I should expect to pay. Where are the best places to find parts? 3 – fit it all. I’m a proficient DIYer but not experienced with fiddling around with cars. I’ve got a decent tool kit and a Haynes manual, what can go wrong? From what I’ve researched so far I think I should be able to replace all of the various body parts (although I am a little nervous). 4 – get it wrapped. I’ve got a budget for all this of around £2,000. Thank you if you’ve made it this far! I really appreciate your time and any assistance you can offer. Dan

  7. Paint Work Scratch! Help.

    hi guys, washed my car on Sunday and I have noticed a very nasty scratch, well more than a scratch is a dig which has gone past the white paintwork and to the base where you can see the metal...(Ba*tards!) whoever has done it! Just after a good solution to sort this out, anything off the shelf I can buy in Halfords, my old man has previously bought like a colour magic pen from Halfords for his car and got a scratch out, but this is very deep..of course I need to do sooner rather than later to avoid rusting. Please help!! thanks James
  8. I've just finished rebuilding the front end - bumper, wings, various bits under the bonnet - on my Mk2 Focus. (It's taken two and a half years... ) I've got these things left over. I'm not too worried, but I'd prefer to know what they are :) It's possible that certain new parts I've bought already had them fitted without me noticing (e.g. a new bumper), in which case they're duplicates. Any ideas?
  9. Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction... I'm looking to buy a zetec s body kit for my mk3 focus, I've scoured the web and can't seem to find one, can anyone help me?? Cheers
  10. So I've have my fiesta for over a year now and recently had someone drive into the front of it. so i need a new bumper as the other one is cracked, but while i'm at it i'm going to remix the entire car, i currently have no photos to hand but will up load a ton asap. The car is 3rd hand and has 60,000 miles on the clock. I have recently changed the air filter as the other one was ruined. I have a sub that needs fitting but it's a passive speaker so i need an 4 ohm 800 watt amp to go with it. any other mods that can be done would be great as i desperately need help! Thanks, Jack P.S. the Car is still in it's factory state so there have been no mods yet.
  11. hi guys just bought a 2011 mondeo hatchback in white and im loving the car (its my first ford) i just want to make a few mods to the outside like the grill etc but apparently i have a facelift model? which i have no idea to be honest, so just wanted some advice on what parts to get and where to get them form for my car. Things im thinking of doing, -New matte black rims (seen some 19" that i do like and will get) -New grill (preferably the honeycomb one) -Not to sure about the light brows at the minute -Maybe a boot spoiler -Front sports bumper depending if i can find one i like or ill just get the grill and a splitter I seen this concept rs that looked a beast but have no idea where to get the parts (more than likely because its the concept but I found the splitter for it just not the actual look of the bumper etc) its in the pics below along with my car
  12. Fiesta 1.4 Zetec Mk6

    Hi, The engine management light came on, so had computer diagnostics run on it and it showed a code P2107 which is a fault with the "throttle body", got a secondhand one and my mechanic fitted it, but he reported that the car ran very badly with it, so he replaced the old one, which the car runs fine with, but has the engine management light on. My question is, when a secondhand throttle body is fitted does it need to be calibrated for that car, and if so, who would do that? Or, if not, does my car running badly with the secondhand throttle body fitted mean that it is faulty? My car is a Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec 2005 (Mk6) Thanks...
  13. Hi guys, I've scoured the Internet looking for the location of the throttle body in my Focus, I want to give it a good old clean. I used a whole can of carbon cleaner on the throttle body in my Golf and it worked a charm! But as I'm yet to buy a Haynes for the Focus, can someone please help me out! Thanks in advance, Sam
  14. Hi all, Thought id share just how thrilled i am with this car and what its capable of. Spent the last year working on it and I'm pretty happy with my end result. This is my second car to, so its been quite an insightful experience! Heres my car fresh from the showroom last August: Added my new 17" Rims - I run a tyre place so i have decent supply of alloy wheels at my disposal: Had a Bluefin Remap installed at Hills Ford - Kidderminster, upped the bhp to 140. Then kept things simple adding a K&N Panel filter which gave it a surprising little boost!!! I'd estimate I'm running with 145-150bhp, the actual presence of the filter made quite a difference although that might just be a placebo. BODYKIT! I spent such a long time admiring the ST and S models on the roads I finally decided to update my bodykit. A Bodyshop I work with, who do our Alloy Wheel refurbishments, offered to sort the painting and fitting out for me and were more than reasonable. Heres credit to them: http://www.smartcarerepair.co.uk/ The bodyshop recommended buying official parts only, in order to make sure each piece would fit properly, and give a quality look! Sideskirts: I got these direct from ford over the phone.

  15. Within 2 months of owning this, it's been involved in two accidents already. The first, nothing major, yet still ******* annoying. Parked down a street for about half an hour to pick something up from a shop round the corner, come back and I see a massive black mark across the passenger side of my car, found out it was rubber so most of it come off... this was what was left. No witnesses, no cameras.. typical. I went to a bodyshop about this and he quoted me £220.. I laughed and said bye. So then, two days ago, on my way to work, some idiot coming out of junction doesn't look left again and pulls out as i'm half way past him, then drives off... tried finding him, no luck. waiting on CCTV footage and a witness to come forward to give me the numberplate, was too annoyed at the time to even think of stuff like this. (I tried finding him for about half an hour). Funnily enough, it was MK6 Dark blue fiesta, although I doubt he takes much care of his car as any of the forum users. Anyway the damage done.. Got a quote for this from a bodyshop next door to the one above and the front wing/bumper for £340.. much better. Will need to get the alloy looked at aswell but this is a priority. Have any of you had anything similar and how much did it cost to get it repaired? Hopefully the culprit can be found and I won't have to pay anyway! Cheers,

  19. Customising Your Focus!

    Hey crew had my focus a little while now, enjoy every bit of 1.8 zetec there is. But my creative juices are stirring and now im itching to change her looks So far iv stuck an aux, subwoofer, some stickers, and air deflectors... but lets be honest thats a poor attempt really. I lack much 'knowhow' what i mean is, im too frightened to do something wrong, so my practice is limited. Iv a whole shopping list of things id like to do but dont really know how or where to go about doing most of it. Wondering if any you have similar passions and could help me out. things im interested in doing to my mk2 57plate, 1.8 zetec focus: body kit/ lowering(just want it to have stance) vinyl wrapping hood in carbon - wrap the roof in gloss black? definitely nicer wheels, something black, spokes and low profile window tint, dark fat exhaust, more for the sound but some performance is never a miss. possibly change to lights and other little bits what you guys think? really wanna discuss as much as possible. Im a Milton keynes boy and ideally wanna keep most work (if i cant do it) local ish will upload more updated pics of my ride when i can, could only find really early ones.
  20. Hi, I am not really an engineer or anything but i want to repair the body trim triangles infront of the wing mirrors.

Thanks for any help people, Loving my sport focus ;) Andrew McDougall
  21. Tips For Buying Titanium

    Hi all. I looking to by S-MaxTtitanium. 2 cars for consideration 2009 & 2010. Does anyone have advice (body work, engine etc) before I buy. Thanks!
  22. Hello everyone, I have just got a Focus 1.8 TDCI 05 plate and it has been made to look and sound like an ST. And thats all great, sure, looks lovely. But, and its a big but, how do I get it to DRIVE more like an ST? I've looked at remaps and induction kits and whatever else but I'd like some advice from you guys. Realistically I'd like to spend up to £500 and I'd like to get it from 115bhp near to the 160 mark. My uncle said he will sort me out with a remap for £100 which should see a good improvement, but what else is there I can do? Any advice would be great. Cheers :)
  23. Hello :)

    Hi there, I have just recently brought a new car and am in love with it! (wont say what car I had before ..) It has already been modified, I just need to touch up a little bit of paint work, but otherwise all good! If anyone knows where to buy the best paint from ( i need it for the sides and wheels) that would be most helpful. I'm looking to make friends on here who can give me advice and share pictures of modified fords, and of course guides on how to do it. Next i'd definitely like to add more to the inside. thanks Grace
  24. Hello, The throttle body of my C-Max 1.8 Duratec makes a electrical whine when the ignition is on (it might do it while running too but I can't hear it over the engine!). Is this normal? Sign of impending failure? Video with the noise... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnwgbyKgT70 Matt
  25. Hi There!
