Hi nice car another few mod ideas you could tackle are gel overlays changing interior lighting/add footwells if you don't have already and also if you feel like parting with a fair bit of cash and mental ability then xenon lights for the front (converted to be same as an st) and led rear lights then your car will look the biz

Welcome to the forum,

Hello!

Welcome along, don't tell the others but '08 is definitely the best year ;-)

Care to share any links on where you got the body kit parts from?

Knock yourself out on the other project, it might end up in the general chat section best though.

I myself have another project, it's a 1991 Chevrolet Camaro, bit of a thirsty bugger, but having it as a second car doesn't make it so bad!

lol i wish i had done mate,
I would have fitted automated boot lift and puddle lights in the doors, had i designed it because these are proving difficult to achieve.
Thanks very much for the kind comments and i love your headlights with the chrome side leaf section inside they look like ST Xenon. And before you purchase somthing for the bumpers. An ST replica is cheaper to create than a ZetecS by over 200pounds if buying all parts from ford.
An ST front bumper is around 90pounds cheaper than a zetecS front lip.

We welcome all types of build and hobby mate,
When you get a moment feel free to start a thread in the General side of the forum and tell us a bit about it.

Welcome to the forum mate. You should fit on roof rails if you get a chance. They really improve the look of focuses. Your car will be looking decent in no time! ^_^

Holy cow! That spoiler is knackered! Is that an insurance job or are you returning it to the sender?

Love the other project, I'm guessing thats a v-tec in the front? Had a friend with one of those slotted into a clubman. He took me for a spin in it. Never again. The most awesome and scariest car experiences I've ever had!
