i need to get some lowering springs soon has anyone used PI springs they lower the car my 35mm wanted some eibach but there bit more expensive and they are only 30mm

Looks even better in the day light mate,

Well done,

If it was mine id purchase a set of these stick on light brows in black from DMB

http://www.dmb.uk.com/prod/1701/focus-mk2-facelift-headlight-brows

Will give the face of the car a more agressive appearance, a must in my opinion.

Will look even better when lowerd and side skirts fitted,

Just don't forget your adjustable rear camber bolts when lowering to save the rear tyres from excessive wear.

There should be rubber stops on the frame somewhere that you can adjust.

Yes, there should be two rubber bits that look like doorstops on threaded bolts.

Try winding the high side one down and see how it looks.

Candy blue would look good and stand out from the rest mate,

Id research plasti coat loads first and id give your existing panels 3 months to set completly after being sprayed by the body shop befor coating with plasti-coat.

Are you doing it yourself or getting some place to do it?

I never seen candy blue befor might do a search and see what come ups. plasti dip doest damage the paint work at all so should be ok also it just get spreyed stright on and if you dont like it just peel it off. im going to try it myself and see how it comes out but im going to do a trial run on a old front bumper i have.done alot of search on it been intrested in it for few months now.

Have you seen the thread on STOC forum recently of a guy who tried it in a similar shade of blue? Had all sorts of bother with it running, and was having help from an experienced mate. Ended up throwing in the towel before getting it finished.

Just a heads up and may be worth giving the guy a shout to if has any tips before you start. Must say though, think it would look stunning if it worked out! Was dying to see that guy's finished article, but instead he had the nightmare task of picking the plastidip out of all the nooks and crannies along with peeling it off the main panels!
