So had my Sea Grey 2008 Focus for 4 weeks now, and absolutely love it. Wanted to start with simple mods due to buying the car outright at £4.4k, (broke) lol.

 

Here's the car when I brought it home the first day:

 

dbe52119-0f7a-4251-bc65-52452ad391a5_zps

 

Stock model with rear privacy glass, the previous owner added Tints to the front two windows as well, but getting those removed at the end of this month.

 

Went for blue interior theme so started with the front footwells. Already wired so just Blue leds to pop in:

Front and Rear Courtesy/Map Lights

Alluminium Pedals

 

Horrible and plain as standard

I've done other little things like change the sidelights, get dust caps for the air valves on the tyres as some were missing, and going to get some wheel locking nuts to replace the missing ones.

 

Next on the list for payday this month is:

 

  • Blue ignition barrel
  • Rear LHD fog light (might do the reverse light at the same time though not confident doing the wiring)
  • LED pads for glove box and boot
  • Custom Heater Controls
  • Removing the centre trim and painting it Moondust silver (not a fan of carbon wrapping)
  • Mist washer jets (will colour code)
  • Touch up the odd scrapes with Official Sea Grey spray can

Cheers for looking and comments/suggestions most welcome B)

So some more goodies turned up on Friday, just before the postal strike  :lol:

 

Excuse the knee but it was nearly 30degrees on saturday and perfect to do a few mods in the sun B)

REAR FOG CONVERSION:

So ridiculously simple to do :) Just don't be a wally like me and forget to order a red bulb.

Cree one ordered as soon as it dawned on me :P

Nice and symmetrical  ^_^

BOOT & GLOVE LED:

 

The boot was fairly simple, but the glove box, boy oh boy what a palava. There are 7 screws in total, with 3 screws hidden under rubber grommets at the base of the glove box which need removing before the whole unit will come out. Took me awhile to find those  :huh:

 

67b78040-6883-4120-9ea1-931ff2471a85_zps

 

Also this T10 W5W adapter supplied with the LED pad was very fiddly and in the end just didn't work. I also ended up blowing my interior light fuse as at one point I forgot to unplug the power for the glove box light when fitting the LED pad. Quick trip to Halfrauds to fix that. But waiting on a new adapter to complete the glove box.  :angry:

BOOT LED PAD:

 

Looks great I think, can only imagine how bright it would be with two fitted. But much better than the pathetic stock light.

Hopefully should be more goodies in the post today ;) More to come  :D

I bought them from a UK seller and they arrived next day, he was selling 2 pads for about £2.50, i looked at his listing today, he is now selling them for £52 LOL like wtf. Anyway look at my signature all my mods I've put links to them on ebay. You may have to get them from Hong Kong if you cant find a UK seller at a reasonable price. Also might want to invest in some T10 W5W adapters in case you get some fiddly/dud ones like I did.

 

Enjoy  :rolleyes:

should probably clarify that its a Fiesta St that im getting, incase your enthusiasm was for the Focus ST. Focus a bit big for my needs atm. Due to be collecting it from the dealer towards the start of August so fingers crossed. Getting it is Frozen White, ST-2 Style Pack with the half red interior!! Cannot wait!! Lots of mods planned!!

Those are the ones I put in my footwells, literally popped in without issue. 

For the Rear reg plate, they already had some T10/W5W leds, which look like this:

As they fit in horizontally you want as much light facing downwards. Might be different on your fiesta though
