Hey guys I'm new to this so figure I'd say hi and to show my Zetec S.
I haven't done anything to the car as yet as I've only had it like 2 months but I'm planning on getting twin exhausts on her at some point this week all going well with a few more customs in the pipeline. Hope you like it I know I love it. Any suggestions on upgrades and what you guys have done to yours would be massively appreciated :) Focus back bleeped.png Focus bleeped.png

I purchased the front upper ST grill and it makes loads of difference in my eyes - check out my topic youl see.

Thanks for the info from Lenny, you cant change the front main grill to ST one as it wont fit, youl need an ST bumper or even you could cut it out and make it fit like someones done previously.

Yeah I can see the difference it makes from your pictures. I'm definitely looking into getting it, wether or not I'll cut it to size or get the ST bumper. I'm not too good at cutting. Just a quick question.. I have a square mark on my boot, possibly where a vinyl or a decal has been and it's left the sticky stuff behind when it's been pulled off, what's the safest most effective way of gettin that off without ruining my paint work?

Iv previously sprayed WD40 on a patch, let it absorb for 3 minutes then lighty rubbed off with a cloth, even your nail could do it. Theres many other solvents people use.

id like to see some pictures of the st lower grill fitted in to a mk2.5 bumper that has been cut to allow the grill to sit in to it,
i cant imagine the results being good to be honest, the curve of the mk2.5 bumper is different and i cant see it going smoothly,

but as previously said,
the st bumper is a straight swap and anyone who has a mk2.5 zetec s already has the st side skirts and rear spoiler fitted to their car, so a st replica would just require the front and rear bumpers. in regards to the body work.

Even though the Zetec S rear looks better than the ST :P

I much prefer the Zetec S rear bumper. Has a lot more goin for it. It's made for a single exhaust on either side. Found some I like, be getting fitted next week. I'll get some pictures done before and after see what you guys think
