Co.meath it is then lol
As long as there's a road to it I'll be there.
I may create a new thread for this topic of meet in ireland.
Once we choose a place then perhaps we can get quardenants for sat nav to ensure we all arrive on dot location.

update:
Last day of Deliverys in Ireland before Ford Fair 2013,
I haven't received the replacement strip purchased from dmb on 23rd May only 8 days ago and paid 10pounds for expess post lmao go faster stripes don't go faster even by express post it seems.
I have tracking number for it though so will arrive on Tuesday of next week.

More importantly though I haven't received anything from Ford Fair confirming my application or parking position,
I have emailed them yesterday for information but no response yet.
So I may be on display in the car park section lol ain't paying twice after traveling 6hrs from home.

Left the car in for a vallet and wax on the way home from work, collecting it at 17:00 then fitting the QR Code decal
I've updated page 1 of this thread to reflect the QR Code idea. Its now aimed at new readers being introduced to the forum.

I've painted the spacer sections between the front alloys and the brake discs yesterday evening.

Nice one - only tip i can think of is take lots of valeting products/ cloths to spruce the car up again when you are there, especially for the tyres/ wheels, tyrewall black brings the tyres up nice (makes them look like new) its handy to have a handheld vaccum cleaner to clean up anything caused by the trip, and the front can get covered in flies that can be hard to get off, glass is very important and glass polish gets a better result than spray, but can only be used in dry conditions.  Enjoy it/  have a good one

Thanks for advice guys,
As usual the local valeting crew made a fantastic job, unfortunitly they don't have a company name to quote,

Focus is shining :)

This build thread is now complete until November or perhaps forever who knows.

One thing I do know though is lenny has to go in search of a life outside of the blue oval
Its been a fantastic 3 years of modification and furfilling my dreams,
I never anticipated getting this far with it and I thank many of you guys for assistance and knowlege

But sadly it is now time to turn the key on the build for a few months atleast I'll see how it goes in november,
If I was to go further then modifications would be:
Upgrade intercooler
Upgrade front brakes
Hybrid turbo
Dpf content removal
Remap to 144bhp
Upgrade Clutch
ST front bumper
ST rear bumper
St exhaust tips
TrippleRcomposites front splitter for ST
Front Wind deflectors
Zs pedals
K&N57s induction
Chrome radiator resivour

The thoughts of fitting all of the above is exciting and having a 140ps 1.6TDCi would be classic but the cost of modification may not be worth going for,
My journey to work is 13 miles each way and is now permanent so the idea of somthing petrol and a bit more power appeals
No promises but id like to own an ST focus before I die lol
