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

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!

That's not a mini, its a go kart on steroids.

Pity about the spoiler.

Post service is a pain to get insurance out of, they make you jump through so many hoops you get fed up and quit.

That is one serious mini,

Nice 4-2-1 exhaust system too, id love that on my focus but ive got a DPF preventing this.

Id happily swap my focus for that mini though lol.

Awful shame about the spoiler mate,

You could bond it with tiger seal and bolt it straight on to the car to maintain correct shape before glue sets.

Then sand it smooth, add filler etc.

But if insurance pay out,

You could buy new from ford for around 140 pounds in primer, and the mk2.5 has a clear spoiler brake light.

Id repair that one, prime it and sell her onwards.

Looking at the work done on the mini, i reckon you will make a fantastic job of the spoiler repair.

i was trying to keep it sort of a sleeper. i had mini light wheels on it but when i put hi spec brakes on it the wheels would not fit!! :wacko: so i bought compomotive 14" not really happy with them but they only just sqeeze on!!

im trying to claim my money back but if i get it or not! different story. iv bought a new one already because i cant wait! :)

Given the nature of this thread, and its deviation away from an introduction, going to move it to the Focus club. It should fit in nicely there :)

Same position myself missus and two kids mate,

Dont throw it in the bin anyways mate, if selling it PM me first, i know a fella in birmingham who would like to repair it.

DPF is one of those things that causes a crack of thunder when mentioned.

Its a Diesel particulate filter.

It fits below the manifold on all diesel engines since 2008

Internals like a honycombe filter that catches all the carbon.

Newer ones are ceramic and burn the suit and carbon without fluid.

But older versions use eloys fluid to ignite the carbon and clear the filter every time the sensors go out of sync.

Lowers emissions and results in cheaper tax but raised back pressure.

When I get my new wheels, I'll be keeping the old ones, at some point I'll fit snow tyres on them. Plus its always handy to have a second set of alloys.

Was the spoiler that snapped an ST one?
