Hi everyone,

 

Had my focus for a week now and want to crack on to making a few modifications, any suggestions?

 

Considering spraying the alloys gloss black, thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Looks nice I'd put the wind deflectors on and red and black badge overlays leave the wheels though try an post some pics of my titanium (zetec s lookalike) with these items on so you can see before you buy .

Footwell lighting, DMB overlays, DRL fog surrounds, deflectors as mentioned, new centre caps for the wheels, and a colour on the wheels would look good, Black would look good, but I think a red would look sweet!

I am looking into powdercoating my wheels black too, would look awsome. I think some wind deflectors might look good on the windows. The chrome trim on the bonnet I want to either replace or wrap in black, but not sure how that would look on yours.

Thanks guys!

 

I think ill order the wind deflectors and do all the lighting this weekend!

 

Also, are there any ways without spending an absolute fortune to get a bit more power from the engine?

Get that chrome bonnet trim colour coded, makes the whole front end look smart!

Personally, colour coded.

I'm very much one for getting a 'custom stock' look. Carbon draws attention to the mod being done, where as simply colour coding it makes it look different (and like an ST) but isn't so in your face about it.

Also, regards the power, they used to make superchargers in the states that bolted into the old Zetec lumps, would love one on mine, alas don't think they make them for the Yamaha derived engine. You could go old fashion, strip the head off and port and polish it.

Try removing the Cat and get a free flowing exhaust, might fail around MOT time.

Turbo it?
