This is the type most use-

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4170270988

That's great, thanks for the link. When I had a quick look on ebay I could not find anything like this, must have been searching for the wrong keyword.

 

Cheers.

 

Phil.

It's taken about 3months to actually get it fitted due to work commitments but the next big mod is finally out of the way (almost)

 

I won this on ebay for 80pounds

 

The best part of a genuine MS design bodykit

 

 

I had to drive to swindon n back to collect it and then it lived in the shed for over a month till i could find the time to take it to the bodyshop

 

When I finally got around to having it sprayed, the weather turned and it rained every day so again it went back in the shed for over a month due to working every time there was a clear day

 

I came very close to fitting it last week and managed to clean the car and apply the primer for the provided elch adhesive, only for when i finally went to glue it, i found that the elch had turned into a solid rubber with time n there was no way i was gluing everything with it

 

Ordered a tiger seal from the bay and then i had to work a week in bedford. But I have now actually managed to finally get it fitted

 

Here it is being fitted

 

 

 

And here it is finally on the car

 

 

 

 

 

 

Really butches up the front end I think makes it look a lot meaner

 

You will notice at the start of the post I said I have almost finished fitting it.. Right after fitting the sideskirts, I have managed to source a set of ford skirts instead which I couldnt resist so i have bought them and am waiting to take delivery of them.

 

So hopefully come next weekend I will be taking the MS skirts back off and fitting zetec s skirts instead

Definitely redefines the look of the car.

Being in on the 'secret' project from the start has given me some glimpses of the progress but certainly must say I like a lot now it's done.

Lol nice one gents

 

You two are the only ones I let in on 'the secret' as I always let me uncle Clive in on mod ideas planned and I needed advice from Lenny on side skirt fitting

 

Only reason I kept it a 'secret' is because I knew it would take me so damn long to actually get time to get it to a bodyshop for spraying and then get time to actually fit it.

 

Rather than drip feed the progress on here a month at a time when I finally got around to doing it bit by bit I thought I'd save it for a reveal once it was finally fitted

 

 

Properly wounded though that literally on the night of the fitting I find a set of ford skirts that I've been hunting down for months. The only reason I decided to fit MS skirts was as a substitute as I couldnt get hold of any ford skirts.

 

I know its gonna be a touch job getting these back off though

Nice one mate

 

I was toying with the idea fitting an ST front bumper for a while but couldnt bring myself to do it so the MS front lip was the next best thing to make the front that bit more aggressive.

 

I'm thinking about fitting headlight brows and adding grill mesh to the bumper so give it some sort of a lower grill

 

The next big mod will either be new alloys or a duplex exhaust and then that will pretty much be the cars exterior finished apart from black led tail lights

Well tonight I took delivery of a set of genuine ford focus ZS/ST side skirts, ready in panther black for a bargain price. Top bloke as well he drive them right to my door instead of get a courier.

 

So when I get around to it, hopefully the weekend, the MS skirts will be coming off (with difficulty I presume) and the ST skirts will be going on

 

Need to source the parts of the fitting kit too though I think

 

 

I am aware my photos are currently down, by the looks of it my bandwidth resets on the 4th so they should be back up n running then
