if you need any specific views or angles just let me know...
im looking to get the ignition light, scuff plates and a set of mud flaps soon... i was also thinking of getting a new muffler end as the standard zetec s ones make it look like a diesel the way its pointing down. but this could prove awkward with the rear diffuser!!

Nice one mate, i love your rear :wub:
looks good, could you go under the car and take some pictures of the panel where it joins to the bumper in the centre,
also european parts stock and sell a lovely stainless steel duplex system, but for the rear box, duplex pipes and stright piece to connect to the cat.
for those 3 items in stainless steel with chrome tips they want 732euro including postage via DHL


and :o theirs nothing wrong with a diesel ;)

i managed to bag some Focus RS Milltek trims to fit on mine, will get these fitted to an aftermarket box, all in due time...might be dropping off the rear bumper, diffuser and front skirt for spraying - price dependant. if its too high then i will give it a go myself.

good find their mate,
you will be able to fit your whole hand in to those pipes once fitted,
but will look like a full milltek system from the outside because im sure milltek is stamped on the pipe ends.

Sorry about the mud :S hasn't had a wash in two weeks

Basically it just mounts in exactly the same places as the original bumper, the last two pics show one mounting for the side skirts, they have three screws per side all mount underneath the car

Hope this helps :)

Hi mate,
thanks for taking the pictures and dont worry about the mud :) i didnt get any fitting instructions with the side skirts just the front and rear parts came with fitting instructions, so its good to know that they are supported by three screws under neath the car aswell as the pop in clips along the side of the body and some tiger seal. i have printed these pictures for future reference :D

on the last pic it looks as though they have used abit of silicone to join the two parts?? its hard to work out from under the car... im hoping this makes more sense to you lenny??

Thanks for all of the pictures mate,
i have printed all of them to A4 size so i can study them in further detail, and it looks like they used some body kit glue to hold it on along with the rivets, the fitting guide also recommends to use some body kit glue from ford but it costs over 70 so im going with grey tiger seal would be just as good as the ford stuff
im really happy with the information and support im recieveing from all of you regarding this modification and really looking foward to the first week of next month when the ball starts rolling on this.

I'm getting very worried about you <_<

Hi clive,
sorry to cause concern mate :lol:
im getting overly excited about getting the kit fitted, its been on my list of things to do for a hell of a long time now,
and its finally going to happen so im really excited lol its like waiting for santa to arrive,
because i know what im going to get but i dont know how good its actually going to be :lol: depends on the body shop,
but he made a good job on the rear spoiler and he's 54 years old been spraying since he left school so should be ok,
just cant wait to look out the window and see a moondust silver zetec s parked in the drive.

the zetec s is not available from the ford garage over here,
only available in the uk and some have imported them to ireland but ive only ever saw one Zs focus in ireland and it had northern reg plates on it, so mine will stand out from the crowed a bit.

Update:

went to my local Halfords store today and to my surprise they didnt have any cans of Ford Metallic Sea Grey in stock or any sign of an empty space where it would be coming in neither,

so i picked up a can of Ford Metallic Moondust Silver to represent my focus, and then picked up other cans of grey and put them next to each other until i found the correct contrast i was looking for,

so i initally was going to purchase some Ford Metallic Graphite Grey but it seemed to be a little too dark for the diffuser section,
see sample below

so instead i Purchased a can of Peugeot Metalic Graphite Grey which is a slightly brighter shade and i think it looks good when next to the metallic moondust silver on the rear diffuser.
See Images of Paint colour Below:

unfortunitly they didnt have any tiger seal or anything at all for fitting body kit panels :(
i asked the girl for some body kit adhesive or similar and she handed me a tube of two part glue 9euro for a 50ml tube :lol:
how many of those would i need to fit the side skirts?
so ill be purchasing the tiger seal from ebay

Good effort mate.
Another thing that will stick well is windscreen sealant.

Another thing you might be able to try is Mirror adhesive , i stuck a 2m x 2.5m glass mirror in my bathroom , 2 years ago and it's not moved thank fully , i remember when reading it , it said it bonds to wood , plaster , plastic , metal. it cost £10 per cartridge.

Nice one mate,
