That stereo looks nice mate, bet you can't wait to get it fitted in :)

A stereo upgrade is what I would like to do but for an oval fitted one for the facelift you either got to have a Zenec and get ripped off or a cheap jap one and have it break on you. No in the middle unless the facia is changed to suit. Ah well

Gona be spending Xmas day with the family or fitting the stereo?? :P


Right mate for example, this is the fitting kit you would need:

You can see it has a fascia adapter to build the square head unit up to your oval fascia

As requested, here's some better photos. (excuse how depressingly dirty she is, it's down to adverse weather conditions and the Missus's drive way)

Looks excellent mate,
Maybe yellow flyeye on the fogs to give some contrast,
But looks fantastic front and back, not too dark and not too light, just spot on perfect
Your focus is coming togeathdr nicely, rear looks very sporty, some flaps like the custom sets for the zetecs would fit a treat, protect body from dirt and also help finish the rear to look low and wide.

Agreed that it's lookin great! I know you're not 100% happy with the finish, but I'm sure any blemishes are only noticeable close up and will only annoy you as you'll know they are there. Those pics are pretty much the way people are gonna see it, at that distance if ya get me, so it looks spot on. You haven't done the rear fogs and upper brake light have you? Would finish the rear off a treat...along with two big pipes to fill those bumper cut-outs! Any plans for that?

Wouldn't be keen on going with yellow for the front fogs though. I know what Lenny's saying about adding a bit of contrast, but the yellow fogs aren't for me at all...just personal opinion obviously! Might have asked before but what are your ultimate plans for the front end? Think with the fly eye and your car in black that maybe that chrome grille isn't working, what you think? I'd be tempted to try pick up a black grille surround on the cheap (preferably colour coded but maybe standard black plastic) even just as a trial. Just a suggestion.

Cheers lads

Mud flaps are definitely high up on the list, I'm already noticing the effects of not having them. Just gotta get funds together.

I need to get round to fly eyeing the rest of the lights. May have a go tonight but It's just getting the time. I'm already trying to get 2 more mods fitted but it's proving tricky lol.

Concerning the front, I've been wanting to colour code the grill n fog surrounds for a while now. I've already got all the paint ready, again its just a case of getting the time to do it. And I'm thinking whether theres much point as ultimately I'll be fitting an ST front bumper when funds allow.

Concerning the exhaust, I've been looking into fitting an RS exhaust cause I think I could make it work. Think I've sourced one and would just need the brackets. Again it just comes down to aquiring the funds to purchase everything which is hard when your applying for every job going and not getting nothing back.

Tough market at the minute alright mate, hopefully somethin comes up for you soon.

Think the rest of the lights will look well done, should be easy enough to do as well compared to the headlights and tail lights.

I was thinking the ST front was your aim. I had started gathering up grilles and that for mine but have sourced a complete bumper now at a good price so selling on my spare bits to get the cash for it! Think the colour coding would make a cracking difference, but would agree that there might not be much point if changing them anyway. Only thing is I suppose, they might fetch a few quid when you go to sell them as they'll be a nice mod for someone else but with the work already done.

Time and money mate, tell me about it! And weather/daylight aint helping these day either! Still haven't got round to the rear 12V supply in the boot :o

Have you looked into much about the exhausts then? I always thought the standard ST/RS ones wouldn't suit as that middle back box in them sits where we have the spare wheel well, no? I'm gonna wait til my bumper's on then take it to the exhaust centre and see what they can do to fill the holes. Would be happy with standard ST pipes if I thought the box fitted as they can be picked up pretty cheap.

Yup it is tough mate.

I've just fly eyed the rest of the rear lights apart from the 3rd brake light for now so I'll up a few photos shortly. Just need to do the fogs n 3rd brake light soon n It'll be done.

How much did you get the complete ST front bumper for then? I may be interested in purchasing some part from you if the price is right.

Yup your right about the ST exhaust not fitting cause of the standard focus having a spare wheel well so the big back box would sit too low so thats a no go. But my thinking behind an RS exhaust, is that the RS back box is a fair bit shallower than the ST back box. So it wouldn't sit as low under the wheel well. And then the RS exhaust tips are a fair bit bigger than the ST tips, so these should make up for the back box sitting a bit low and fill the cut outs in the bumper.
