Blue is too common up my way. Plus keeping it E.O was the reason I started this whole thing. It's pretty much finished now, just need to get my suspension fitted, gearbox and driveshafts, also have full interior to fit too, gonna be a busy summer.

RShadow you say they were an inch out, is that either side? Is it normal focus rear quarters your trying to fit the Rs bumper to?

Heya

I was sizing the bumper up before i fitted it so haven't changed the rear quarters yet. The bumper was an inch out on one side, it fits in the two smaller holes that judging by your pic aren't part of the rear quarters. I'm going to drill two new holes no biggie :-) was just wondering how the body shop fitted yours

Yes they both secure same way at the back but will stick out a mile at the sides with the standard rear quarters on, a body shop would have to chop & blend it to fit but don't think that would look too good, you could always buy the arches alone and get them put on to your rear quarters, probably cost the same and would look far better.

Just to give you an idea of how much wider it actually is, I've attached few pictures with the standard suspension still on..

This is an awesome project!

 

Quite often when a project like this comes along, you see people say "why not just buy a real RS?" etc. F them!

 

It's nobody's business but your own what you spend your cash on (untill you get married :lol: ) as long as you enjoy the end result - that's all that matters!

 

Good effort dude

Are you having the full car sprayed a mk2 RS colour or sticking with orange?

I had the car sprayed electric orange. £1600 for the paint itself but I wanted to keep it orange.

It would have looked sharp in black.

Back when they first started

Once painted

I went down to Stoke on Trent to purchase Rs rear glass as I didn't want to tint mine and end up with the "silver" line all the way round the windows.

It was then fitted

My friends is black and yes, it does look good. However, i've had my fair share of black cars and wanted to be different this time.

Yeah, it's not nice at all. Fail by Ford but I guess they wanted to try something new. :)
